  1. For the first time in about 20 years, I went to a Dairy Queen! Had some kind of special grilled burger that had two beef patties, some cheese and some kind of dressing that was nice and spicy. I don't usually go to chains, but this was actually pretty damn good!

      Dairy Queen . . . I would so love that! I haven't eaten yet but I think it's going to be leftover pasta. Wah! I want DQ!

          Whoa. Lemon juice and sesame oil sounds very interesting. TY.

      2. Reheated roasted sweet and regular potatoes, boca burger (just the burger, no bun or toppings) and some red raspberries. It wasn't terribly exciting.

        1. Rold gold pretzels and coffee. Worked through lunch and forgot to bring something. :(

          1. A big romaine salad with artichoke hearts, plum tomatoes and a small can of Genova Tuna packed in olive oil. A little balsamic vinegar and ground pepper. Gala Apple.

            1. Salad made from the first freshly picked greens from my garden. Topped it w leftover roasted salmon, hot cherry peppers, cuke , coleslaw and balsamic dsg.
