Got my lunches 1st - 4th

February 1st, 2011 at 09:35 pm

While I won't be packing a lunch in Vietnam, I can play up until I go!

Today it was 2/3 cup of brown rice, 6 oz of sliced ham with a little hot sauce, and the last little bit of green apple chutney...which I got from the canning exchange last November.

I pack multiple lunches at a time in those little square Ziploc boxes, so for the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, its:

1 cup or so of vegetable beef stew
dollop of sauteed kale w/onion, garlic, red pepper

Snack will be 1/3 of the pack of beef jerky.

On a side note, I hit it lucky Sunday on the finding change front. First off, I found a run-over dollar bill. It looked all the world like a fake until I picked up. A couple hours later I found a 1982 half dollar as I was cutting through the car wash parking lot. Its a rare day that my luck has been that good, but day to day, my change finding luck has held up very well - I'm currently at $43.23 since mid-July 2010.

    I wish I did that well. I did have one day where I found a wad of ones, $5 worth, but most of the time I just find a penny here or there.

    That's great! I've found a total of $.03 since Jan 1! When do you leave? Have a great, safe trip!

    Seattle folks must just throw their money away. I've found .51 this year. Mostly pennies.

    Lunches sound great!

    Sister comes on the 10th, and we leave the evening of the 11th.

    CB - Seattle folks are supposedly the "smartest" in the country, but many have not mastered these steps.
    Buy product with cash
    Get change in hand, perhaps look to see if its correct
    Open wallet
    Dump change in wallet
    Close wallet
    I find that Safeway floor is a gold mine for change. I thought it was just my neighborhood Safeway, but I tried a couple of other ones further away - all were productive. The Safeways with the Starbucks inside are especially good...Starbucks floors are quite good too.
    Oh well, more for me.

    The other day I was waiting in line to fill up my tank. The guy ahead of me somehow dropped a pile of change on the ground. He got down on his hands and knees, even edging under his truck, and got it all. I checked! That's Chicago folks.
