If you also have a never-ending list of tasks at work, join us in creating a weekday lunch ritual for recharged afternoons. For help with preparing these brown-bagged feasts, we partnered with Dietz & Watson to inspire satisfying mid-day meals.

Having the foresight and the motivation to pack lunch for the week is hard. And when you do, it often turns into a how-many-ways-can-I-eat-the-huge-batch-of-quinoa-I-made-on-Sunday situation. But with the flavor-packed combinations below, we've got you covered with ideas for Monday through Thursday. On Friday, why not treat yourself to lunch out in the world, or commune with coworkers over delivery?

Each of these four sandwiches hinges on the meat or cheese that pulls it all together, along with the bread that's best for the job. To spice things up—or to add a burst of color or crunch—we've included finishing touches that can pull double-duty at dinnertime.

From top to bottom, here's a breakdown of sandwiches that excite us for lunch and carry us to dinner with an inventive spirit. Make the most of your lunch's cilantro, jalapeño, alfalfa sprouts, and microgreens with menus that multi-task. But first, the foundation for your resourcefulness, with delicious cheeses and meats as your anchor.

Hi Food52ers - is there any way for me to filter out the sponsored posts OTHER than stopping subscribing via my RSS Feed? I know you guys need to make money, but I am not interested at all in this content. Thanks.

As someone who’s built and maintained similar websites for 15 years, my professsional advice would be... if you’re not interested, don’t read them.
