Today's Lunch: Eisenberg's

Voxtrot's "Raised by Wolves" is playing on the iTunes as I'm eating my lunch right now. It is a perfect eating at your desk song. I'm totally stressed out but I'm also totally happy right now. My ears are delighted and so is my stomach. I'm making my way through a chicken salad sandwich with bacon on toasted white, a side of french fries and an egg cream. The fries at first glance don't look too appetizing because they look overcooked. But beneath the golden brown outer layer of potato is a creamy and warm inner tuber layer. The edges are crisped to perfection. I also got 3 full sour dill halves with my sandwich and I am savoring them. I'm 1 2/3 of the way through the pickle supply with 1/4th of the sandwich and many many fries still left. A bunch of my coworkers have been helping me with the fries and there's still too many.

God bless this feast!

Totally jealous. I had a dumb lunch today. I hate poorly- thought out meal decisions.

SWN: I hate dumb lunches. Sometimes out of sheer laziness or actual inability to hit the hunger nail on the head, I have dumb lunches and hate myself for it. However, my face is totally a grease pool right now!

MD: Just super busy at work. A bunch of people are out on vacation. Thanks for adding us! Also, my husband can not be trusted around french fries. He also is the type of person to eat like 7 at once, while I like to eat one at a time. I feel like I have to eat really fast sometimes just so I get my fair share.

When we order fries at Bonnie's, because I am the one who eats 7 at a time smothered in chipotle mayo, we always order another small side of them. Sometimes we miss the easy solutions, YL.
