Dolcelatte is my favourite, especially in pasta with garlic, spinach and mushrooms.
I might have that tomorrow!
I'm with you there. I only eat out for things I can't really make well at home. Even on car trips I take along a nice packed lunch. I found this website very useful for lunch ideas.

Lunch Ideas
My 'Legend in my own lunchtime' claim to fame is that once an Official at Donington 'Monsters of Rock' Festival checking the stuff we were taking into the arena said mine was the best picnic he had ever seen
I take that as an excellent recommendation - Rock fans really appreciate a good picnic

Nothing - again! I really must try harder.
The day seems to rush by and lunch just doesn't happen. (Mind you, breakfast isn't happening really, either.)
Tomorrow I will.
Definitely.
I promise.

Yesterday my day was made.

They put the Mac and Cheese back into the self-serve section at the IKEA in Richmond, so you can pile up a MASSIVE bowl of the stuff for $1.99

I'm contemplating taking advantage of that again today...

What is 'the Mac and cheese' that rates so highly?
I love cheese, so anything with cheese in it is usually OK with me, but the 'Mac' bit is a worry!

Macaroni and Cheese.

It's very popular in Canada so I'm surprised you haven't heard it called Mac and Cheese before. There's also a popular product known as "Kraft Dinner" which includes the macaroni and cheese powder. I can't stand it personally but it's quick and easy I guess compared to making a cheese sauce.

Today I had baked beans on toast for lunch. Proper English Heinz ones, not that Canadian muck with 10 pounds of sugar and half a pigs head floating around in it. That stuff is just vile.

Couple of slices of Tofurkey in a wholewheat roll. Then I was still hungry so I had a Skor bar. That's what I call a 'balanced diet'

Hahaha. I've gotten used to the sugary beans, my tastebuds have adapted. I had the Lidl Baked Beans when I was in Spain one time and those were very sweet too.

What bread did you have it on?
