I remember some of the lunches my mom made. My favorite was balogna with mustard mayo snd sweet pickle. She also made sandwiches with left over meatloaf. Sometimes I make a lentil loaf for the same purpose.

By high school I fended for myself and lunches went downhill.

These days there is no lunch. I graze at my desk. Egg burritos, or left over pizza. This week I took pigs in a blanket made using vegetarian sausage and grocery crescent rolls. Ning calls them little pigglies.

I love BLT, which of course I use veg bacon for. No one here would like that but it works for me.

Oh, boy!!  Two of my favorite sandwiches.  Corned beef and a BLT.  And a BLT with avocado, no less.  Yumm! 

Pat, I agree with Felaine.  After a good report from the doctor you need a reward.  Good for you!

Pat - I don't think ONE sandwich (or one of anything) is going to do any permanent harm. The enjoyment factor is more important, IMO.

When I had back surgery 5 years ago, the holier-than-thou physical therapist in th hospital kept harping on "No Bending, Lifting, or Twisting." So the first thing I did when I got home was call a local store & deli that delivers, and ordered a BLT!  With avocado.

The hospital food was dreadful...inedible...they've stopped preparing it in their own diet kitchen, and farmed the job out to a company that used to prepare the plastic meals for airlines... when airlines used to serve "meals."  I think that's what most school districts have done, too.

Went and saw my cardiologist yesterday, who essentially gave me a clean bill of health. Now, we did talk about diet a bit; all the while with me dutifully nodding my head in agreement. After the appointment, I made a beeline to Protzel's Deli in St. Louis. And got their giant corned beef sandwich. My Dr. would be pissed.

"Modern" school lunches in the US are depressing....junk food.  Even during WW2, with rationing and all that, we were still fed decent wholesome meals.

The people who make the decisions still have not figured out that kids who are undernourished, or malnourished, can NOT learn, no matter how good their teachers are.

Rethuglican school boards....

When I was a repairman in Houston, Texas I loved those calls at Chinese and oriental eateries. Big named places that served a lot of people, and the managers always made sure I left there with enough free food for 3 people.

The mystery meat from Brazil looked a bit dubious.

I'd love to try foods from every country and culture.  Just need to win that $2,000,000 lottery.  Ha!  Actually, I've never purchased a lottery ticket.

The Ukraine food looks like prison grub from the Victorian era. 

Comment by Randall Smith on September 18, 2014 at 7:20am

If I was hungry, I'd eat them all. I might pause at the Ukraine plate! What, no Greek lunch?
