Portable Dessert

A sandwich is quite easily defined.
A slice of bread or two, you'll always find.
Beyond that, though, it's anything you want--
A holder for your favorite things combined.

Portable Pasta

In just under a quarter of an hour*,
Take something made of water and some flour
And use your magic chef's skills to create
A filling meal -- just boil, stir, devour.
*I fear, my friend, that this might come across
As blasphemous, or maybe as a loss--
But when I was a kid, I never ate
A single pasta dish that needed sauce.

Portable Foodie Cred

Atop the list of Most Pretentious Grains
Sits quinoa, unpronounceable, which feigns
A fancy smile, but actually belongs
In normal weekday salads, sides, and mains.

Portable Diwali

No matter if you're Hindu, Jain, or Sikh,
The food you bring to work should shine this week.
Diwali mubaarak, your lunch should say,
In piquant shades of hing and fenugreek.
