Yep, I've gotta go too. I have to do at least a few of the chores I've been putting off for so long.

Thanks to everyone who kept me company on my last day of freedom. Will provide recon report from the frontline when possible.

Grilled cheese sammich. Cable is being laid in front of our home today (finally getting into the 20th century with the rest of you) and I didn't want to get into anything too involved in case they hit our other utilities or sprinkler lines.

Today it was thin sliced bagette toasted and then spread with Brie, a sliced pear, coffee and a devilish dark chocolate/pecan/carmel/chocolate iced thing from Starbucks.

norgeskog, your lunch sounded so good. All I had was a shredded BBQ beef sandwich. Bang, I love Chinese food so I am extremely jealous that you had some for lunch.

Ok, Juliev. I would have to agree with you. The only thing worse than a vending machine sandwich are some sandwiches that we get in fire camp. Yech!!

Today I rode my bicycle to Valley River Center for an hand dipped ice cream on a stick from Emporium (Oregon chocolate company) but when I walked through the food court, other hunger pangs hit. I ended up with the MD Big and Tasty combo then had the ice cream. I may not eat for a week. I do not eat fast food very often but sometimes they are really good.

I took it directly off a government website. Actually, like I said the lunches are not that bad. It just depends on the quality of food the caterer uses and if the person that inspects the lunches insures that the caterer provides everything required. Usually, I get the veggie version because it seems to have more variety.
