The cafeteria is using the ol' nickel and diming trick. They offer 50% off on most foods for employees, but the prices keep rising and all the extra's that came with a meal are now being weighed. 50% sounds like a big discount, but ordering a beverage, a cold sandwich with a side of chips is $6.00. Their hot meals usually cost anywhere from $6-$8 depending on the entree. 50% off is not a huge discount when they double the price.
I have decided that I will start bringing my lunch to work. Snacks too.
Yesterday, I had left over chicken parmiggiana with a side of rice. I brought a snack size microwave popcorn bag, a can of pepsi and 2 little pieces of dove chocolates. Today was a tuna salad on white, an orange and 3 small cookies for dessert. I'm enjoying my meals more and probably saving a small chunk of change.
How about y'all, presuming you work or go to school? Buy or bring?

I eat lunch at local restaurants. Try to keep it under $20.
Oh, there was this place I discovered recently with some co-workers. They have this burger... it's 1/2 beef, 1/4 lamb, 1/4 duck and you get it with bacon and cheese. OMFG. Ranks up there with a wild boar burger you can get on the other side of town.

I live about 5 minutes from my office and we generally take 1.5 hours for lunch (11:30 - 12:00). So I usually come home and take my dogs out for a walk. Occasionally I have lunch meetings and we order catering in at the office.

Hey 30 minutes with me always feels like an hour and a half.
Actually Rock, I was just testing your reading comprehension.
That should have been 11:30 - 1:00.

I work from home, so my kitchen is my lunchbox.

I'm not allowed to bring in anything but 2 bottles of water leaving me 3 choices: Prison food prepared by inmates, eating junk out of vending machines, or nothing at all for 8 hours(more if I get stuck at work). Since I'm diabetic, option 3 isn't a good one, however, it's usually the on I opt for.The Obama Administration: Deny. Deflect. Blame.
