Hi what is in your lunch bag for work? Mine is a salad topped with turkey pepperoni and shredded jack cheese.

      I'm a teacher,so it's cafeteria food or brown bag...so usually it's brown bag.I brought a nice homemade hamburger with a soup and vitamin water today...and then I see they're having breakfast for lunch in our cafeteria...French toast,scrambled eggs and suasage...Oh well.....

        I brought both breakfast and lunch today. Breakfast was quick oatmeal that I pre-mixed at home and then nuked when I got here. I used a mixture of 1/2 milk and 1/2 water, salt, pepper and butter. Lunch today will be leftover Chinese chicken soup amplified with some homemade Jewish chicken soup of my own.

        I brown bag everyday because the cafeteria food is toxic and pricey.

          I make a brown bag for my fiance once in awhile so he doesn't eat junk food for lunch every single day (he owns a hot dog place). I always pack a thermos of Jamaican seafood gumbo or some kind of fresh homemade soup and a piece of crusty bread.

              Yes I am! I drive through there all the time and have stopped to shop there before we got our Target/Wal Mart combo. I saw a UFO there once, seriously! And a crazy one at that. Not to get too X-Files or anything, but I am reminded of that everytime I think about Washington!

                  I pretty much eat at the American Legion everyday. For $4 I get either a big bowl of soup, a sandwich and chips or a hot sandwich, fries and applesauce. I'm sure I could make my own lunch for under $4, but I don't think I would save enough to make it worthwhile.

                    In my brown bag today: A large fresh bagel sandwich made with genoa salami and spicey horseradish mustard...a vitamin water and a microwaveable soup, and a banana. I felt this was better than our school cafeteria's mystery meat chicken nuggets and greasy fries.Of course,these days,my brown bag is a stay-fresh lunch container!

                      These days something from South Beach, Weight Watchers, or Lean Cuisine, plus some fruit and V-8...bleah.. but it keeps me out of the cafeteria at work and ours has some very fine and very fattenting food cooked by a coupla southern gentlemen who know their way around a kitchen..

                            Just out of curiosity, there is an American Legion by my house and it packed on Wednesday nights. Do they serve something special on certain nights?

                              I think each legion has different dining hours. My legion does a friday dinner special, but I've never gone. Some legions do big breakfasts on the weekend. And some legions don't offer much in the way of food outside of snack foods.

                                Yesterday I sent my man to work with a fried chicken salad sandwich and a bottle of real root beer.
