Sack lunch

I forgot to comment on this photograph last month.

For the first time in 16 months at my current job, I assembled a sack lunch for the residents in mid-April. It was a welcomed change from the hot lunch that most eat each day.

Since I would assemble the lunches on Tuesday without assistance from my assigned workers, I made the salad on Monday. I then enlisted several ladies who wrapped the bread and meat-cheese packs. On Tuesday, I pulled all the ingredients from the refrigerator as soon as I arrived at work and set up an assembly line.

At 11 a.m., the residents filed past the kitchen, grabbed a sack lunch and walked out of the house. Staff escorted them to a local park for a picnic.

The menu for the sack lunch:
  • Turkey and cheese or ham and cheese sandwich -- bread and meat/cheese were wrapped individually to keep the bread fresh
  • Black bean and corn salad -- cupped into an 8-ounce containers
  • Doritos chips
  • Juice cup
  • Apple or orange
  • Mayonnaise and mustard packs
  • Napkin and spoon
The residents enjoyed a nice sack lunch in the park, while I took advantage of the extra time and worked on shredded beef burritos for dinner.
