I have been more diligent about bringing lunch since I usually have small windows of opportunity to eat rather than a casual 1-hr period.

Today, I had two sammiches on an onion kaiser bun - one roast beef and the other chicken breast topped with a slice of pepper jack cheese. Completely awesome and now I am ready to get back to it!!!!

We are fortunate to have a Deli in our building that can get us in and out in only 15 minutes (as long as you can avoid the peak time of 12-12:30). I like the variety and the prices are actually quite reasonable. I just bring a juice from home (usually pickup a case at Costco on the weekends), and I can have any number of sammiches and end up paying a total of only ~$5 per day.

Had a french dip with Au jus yesterday, not sure what I want today. Maybe an egg salad with avacado, bacon, and on sourdough...

I was going to have lunch provided for a CEU event at my office today, but it was cancelled.

So, it was a $5 foot long for me!

Vending machine hamburger, followed by a vending machine ribwich. The roach coach has been exceptionally bad lately. They want $5 for a 99 cent sized hamburger and a handful of chips.


I am addicted to ribwiches.

OK, taking a topic from another post in the mechanical forum, I now think mr_man is in the "A" category as opposed to the "D" category.

I had to go to the monthly SAME meeting for lunch today. Was a bit disappointed in the new venue's food choices... but it was fried chicken, roasted veggies and taters. I didn't eat much of it...

I can't taste the difference either... especially when I think about eating a Big Mac and fries while eating my salad...

We actually swore off sour cream... instead we now use a greek yogurt (low fat) or a low fat yogurt and drain all the nasty liquid out (then we mix in some chipotle and make one hell of a spread).

Quick recipe hint: Take that sauce, add a little honey, marinate some chicken wings in the mix, then bake. When I made this recipe for a office chicken wing cook-off, it took first place. Even if it did cause a couple of the judges to cry.

What's a good ratio of hot sauce to honey? 1:1? 4:1? 30:1? tongue.gif
