    Yeah, I occasionally have lunch at 'Schlepp's'
    Cheddar Cheese Combos and a Butterfinger.... So you ordered the "#4 value meal" this time? Usually I get either a #4 with tap water or order the #7 (slice of leftover pizza, handful of pretzels and two swigs of warm 7-Up out of a 2 liter bottle)

    Were you seated in the 'desk section' of the restaurant or the 'standing at the counter' section?

    Now that I'm a 5-10 minute drive from home, I've been going home for lunch most days. It's also been about a month since I cut back my alcohol intake. Combined, these two things alone have made me feel better and I've probably dropped about 5 pounds.

    I ordered in the "vending section" but ate in the "desk section" as it has a much better view. I was a bit disappointed in the quality of the food. I'm not sure I'll be returning to Schlepp's any time soon.

    We ate at Zaxby's twice on our most recent road trip to Florida and back. We enjoyed it.

    I had a peach yogurt at 3 pm.

    Good thing we're having a big dinner tonight.

    I don't know what that is, but it sounds delicious!

    I had quesadillas with fresh tomatoes and homemade salsa. Then two lemon cookies. Just about right.

    Interesting...I had a frozen burrito with Pace salsa on it. Now I'll go hunt down two Oreo cookies....and I'll have eaten your lunch in a parallel universe. Quick, say something backwards and I'll see if I can understand you!

    Bangers (sausage) with a batter poured over them. Picked some up at the farmers market a few days ago.

    Today's entree was leftover chicken strip, with a side of leftover mashed potatoes, leftover garlic bread, and a small glass of Vernors ginger ale.

    While driving back to the office yesterday afternoon after a trip to a local community's offices I noticed a hastily-made sign outside of a "charcuterie" shop advertising brisket and pulled pork sandwiches. I always figured the shop was just a butcher shop and didn't know that they made sandwiches as well. I made the trip there today to check it out and had the house-smoked brisket with a light dose of some very good BBQ sauce. Like Maister, I also enjoyed a Vernors with my lunch.

    I see myself going back there often.

    Cranberry Nut Quinoa salad. It is good but it is cold. I could go for some warmth.

    It's a good day for hot soup. If only I had some.

    I had some leftover Cajun sausage and vegetables that I made for dinner last night. I was also going to have a banana but I had left it in my Jeep while I was at the gym this morning and it still isn't completely thawed out. Last time I tried to open a banana that had frozen before it was totally thawed it turned to mush in my hands.

    I've been eating Chobani greek yogurt. I tried Oikos but the women around me started looking like Telly Savalas.

    Chobani is yucky. Fage is the best greek style IMHO. Better yet is Siggi's Icelandic style skyr

    A few weeks ago our microwave was removed because some people can't clean up after themselves. It was brought back today. Now I can have a hot lunch

    Found both locally, I'll give them a try. Back in the 80's, my favorite was Columbo. Unfortunately, General Mills bought them out and eventually killed them.
