Some guys buy lunch everyday. I don't see how they can afford it. The heath aspect gets me to. I bring my lunch 4 times a week. Someone's it's whatever I can find sometimes it's leftovers. I'm lucky and every bay here at work has refrigerators and micro waves. Today's lunch...

I did that a lot when I had a sheetz near by.  They had a special one summer, angus burger, 1.99.  I could get a burger, chips and a can of pop and be gone for 4 bucks.

 

Now we have a small carry out that sells lunch.  I usually nab a chicken salad sandwich, or a burger there most days.  Usually spend 5 to 6 bucks a day for lunch.  I should pack a lunch.  I did that the first time I was married because we were really poor, but now I don't think about saving money as much...

That looks pretty tasty, well, other than the greens. I bring lunch almost every day, only once every 3-4 weeks do I buy, mainly I don't have time to get out. I usually have leftovers, but with a 16 yr old son.....there usually isn't much that makes it to the fridge!

Does look good. We feel the same way about the health aspect of "boughten lunches", not that we don't stop for the ocaisional pizza or burger, lol. Most of our food comes from our garden. We can tomatoes and tomato juice, beans- green and yellow, beans with pork as baked beans, spinach, mushrooms, beets, pickles and relishes of all kinds, salsa and chili sauce, peaches, pears, crab apples, blue berries, etc. etc. In the cold room are potatoes, carrots, turnip, cabbages, and onions hang in mesh bags from the ceiling. Then there are the jams and jellies; strawberry, raspberry, hascap, sea buckthorn, currant, crab apple, apple, Saskatoon, blueberry, all from our own plants or picked wild from the bush. We butcher our own chickens, beef, lamb and ducks as well--- keeps two old people pretty busy during the growing season, but we rest up over winter and get pretty fat and sassy by spring again. We do buy flour, salt, sugar, coffee and tea etc., but very seldom anything prepared or so-called value added. "If I can't pronounce the ingredients I don't but it" as the fellow said. Enjoy your lunch, it's trying to snow here today so we're having beef stew, sorry, no pics.

When I get hungry, I text the wife at the house.  She makes lunch and texts me to come up.  I walk about 150' and sit down to a nice lunch.

 

It is Sunny and in the 70's Sorry Oldedeers but I couldn't handle it getting cold that early in the season.  I have a tough time dealing with it in January. :boo_hoo:

Doesn't hurt to pack a lunch a few days a week. On Fridays when I had a "Normal job" I would treat myself to something from sheetz or something close by for making it through the work week lol

I like to bring my own lunch if I eat at work.  Lot's of times I don't eat.

 

Your lunch looks very nutritious and really good tasting.   :thumbs:

It's nearly bed time for me and you guys are making me hungry! It all looks and sounds good to me. I carry a lunch most days. I don't have a fridge at work so I have an insulated lunch bag, a ice pack and my lunch which is usually in a glass container. The whole thing weighs maybe 5 or 6 pounds. Today I had a big load of pasta with meat sause. I can eat that stuff until I'm bursting and still want more! I even haul in cases of bottled water because the tap water is not fit to drink IMO.

I was a bad boy today.

I had a philly steak, with provolone cheese, peppers, onions and a toasted bun.  Along with a side of greasy fresh cut fries.....

 

Man was it good...
