STAWAR: Lunch: You can take it with you


My friends and I always took them and stashed them in our dorm room refrigerator if we didn’t plan to eat them that day. They were classic bologna sandwich and banana lunches, but they often had excellent home-baked cookies included. On warm days, the mayonnaise would sort of curdle and the banana would brown a little, but the cookies were always good and perhaps even better with melted chocolate chips.

Brown bagging at work is also a good way to avoid eating at a restaurant alone, which many people dislike. I remember reading somewhere that the average office desk has more germs on it than the average public toilet seat. Be that as it may, there is still something kind of fun about eating at my desk.
