    On a lark (okay, I had a coupon) I bought a can of Wolf Brand Chili the other day and just had it for lunch today. I don't generally think very highly of canned chili, but this one was not too bad at all. Still not as good as homemade, but I'd have to say it was the best canned chili I've had.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    I've never eaten a lark. Did you smother it with chili or have the chili on the side?

    Where did I ever say I ate a lark? No, I was on a lark. You know, sitting on the stupid bird (he'd make a terrible racket if I wasn't sitting on him)

    I thought maybe you meant to say you were in a lark, perhaps a Studebaker Lark.

    And I thought he meant on a Lark brand mobility scooter (take that, Hoveround!). Because I can just see Maister motoring up the "ethnic foods" isle and getting down a can of Wolf Brand Chili, a crumpled `coupon securely clasped in the opposite hand. Then, ala Homer Simpson, high tailing it to the 10 Items or Less isle yelling "outta my way, jerk-a$$!"

    Am I wrong?

    Seeing as it was Robbie Burns day on Wednesday, today's lunch was the last of the leftover haggis, 'neeps and tatties.

    On today's lunch menu: Leftover Broccoli in Black Bean Sauce and Orange-Spiced Tofu that my sister brought over from one of our favorite Asian restaurants last night.

    I am so sick of sandwiches.

    I'm really not a sandwich type of person, unless it is a PB&J.


    My lunch: leftover red beans and rice with andouille sausage. OMGitissogood!

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Experimented last night, so today (and tomorrow, most likely) I will be eating the results.

    Marinated cubed beef in beef broth, chipolte powder and sliced peppers
    Next day, cooked in wok, adding half a bag of frozen french cut green beans
    Served on top of organic wheat paste

    Taste-tested last night - YUM!

    I have no earthly idea what to eat for lunch. Its been slim pickins for a few days now. Yesterday was a quesadilla, but I'm in the mood for something different. I ride home for lunch, so at least I have a whole fridge to rifle through. And its free. Or at least I already paid for it...

    I love lasagna although it seem to last forever for my family, so I started to make in disposable bread loaf pans and freeze it only baking one at a time. Now I can eat it once a week for a month as opposed to one week a month.

    Today was soup for lunch but tomorrow I'll be invading Detroit Planner's cozy office. I'm thinking of grabbing a couple of wieners for lunch.
