Re: “The Weekly Open Thread: The Office Desk Drawer Snack

When I have a desk (not currently) I usually have a stash of higher-protein breakfast bars, usually Nature Valley but sometimes Kashi. That's breakfast with a cafe au lait / latte, and are handy for most other needs. Also usually dried fruit. If there's a fridge, individual Fage yogurt or Breakstone cottage cheese.

Re: “The Weekly Open Thread: The Office Desk Drawer Snack

When I bring food to the office, it is a grocery sack full. Veggies from my CSA, maybe yogurt and/or local hard boiled egg, 2 reheatable containers of leftover dinner food, and fruit. I usually have more than enough for a 9-10 hr wok day. But, if I do the 3 pm snack walk to vending, it is Cheetos. 2 very small bags of Cheetos. That is why I carry Kennedy 1/2 dollars and $2 bills, and these money do not fit in vending machines.

Re: “The Weekly Open Thread: The Quick Lunch

Chris, thanks for the info; in fact you made me go to Bolton's for the first time ("hot", of course; magnificent!). I was actually, though, wondering what became of the _people_ who ran Luna and their plans to relocate. Their website is still up, and says (c) 2014, so they've updated it since they faded from Franklin Pike, and I _really_ miss their food. [re: Labor of Love, that _sucks_!, and where is now the best PCS in town? (BTW, Kebab Gyro's version, made with a frozen beef portion, isn't bad, with a bit of middle-eastern cinnamony flavor, and is cheep.)]

John, yes, that is the Jam's "Breakfast Sandwich", wonderfully-scrambled eggs, pesto, avocado, cheese, on Provence rosemary olive oil bread ... as Carly said, dream-worthy. Since discovering it I've only once detoured (into the breakfast tacos, almost as good, a bit smaller and cheaper). Enjoy the chix salad. Also, cute kitty.

Re: “The Weekly Open Thread: The Office Desk Drawer Snack

Peanut butter pretzels. And the occasional Gold Bar. I still have some Kashi peanut butter granola bars, but it's self-torture to eat those very often so I save those for when there is absolutely nothing else around and no way to get downstairs to the cafe.

Re: “The Weekly Open Thread: The Office Desk Drawer Snack

I always keep a bag of Aldi almonds with me when traveling or at the home office. You can stave off a lot of bad food ideas by eating a handful of those - especially at the hotel - and then have the time to make a more sensible choice.

Re: “Sinema To Begin Brunch (With Bubbles) and Well-Mannered Kids Are Allowed

LOVE THIS. One teeny question: can the mimosa bar be scaled in price for 1 glass if you're the only in a group imbibing?

Good luck with the well-mannered caveat. I mean that - Love the idea, skeptical on the outcome. In my experience, the parents with the children who create the issues don't seem to think they're not following the rules, rather, the rest of the world is simply not understanding their situation. (Which is pretty ironic, given the situation is, their children are not YET well-mannered. And everyone knows it.)

And I have one piece of unsolicited advice for all parents in that boat, based on my experience with two very loving parents who felt it their responsibility to raise children to become adults: practice that good behavior with special meals at home! Eating out should be a fun reward, not a chore or a drag or a countdown to disaster. Reinforcement works! Children learn what they see and what they get to practice.

Re: “The Weekly Open Thread: The Office Desk Drawer Snack

i'm with moldy. if there is food in my desk, imma eat it. if i bring my lunch, it's a second breakfast at 9:30. however, i do enjoy picking up a pastry or muffin and picking at it throughout the morning. if anything, i keep a good bar of bittersweet chocolate for afternoon sweet tooth emergencies...but i have to hide it from myself.

Re: “The Weekly Open Thread: The Office Desk Drawer Snack

Nola granola, a variety tin of GypsyTeas, Crystal hot sauce since it makes everything better, Lara Bars and Welch's fruit snacks (because I'm really a 40 year old toddler)

Re: “The Weekly Open Thread: The Office Desk Drawer Snack

Heinz Ketchup, soy sauce and mustard packets. Keeping food within reach is just another vector in the overeating paradigm. Christ, I can't even brown bag it. I'll scarf down my breakfast and lunch before 0900.

Re: “The Weekly Open Thread: The Office Desk Drawer Snack

Most of the time, trail mix with a generous sprinkling of extra m&ms is my favorite at work snack. Sometimes hummus and carrots are in the rotation and then there are the days an entire box of CheeseIts are devoured.

Re: “The Weekly Open Thread: The Office Desk Drawer Snack

My healthier options: I stockpile the unsalted whole cashews from the store brand at CVS. Also, "Hint of Salt" Triscuits and the Bare version on Barney almond butter, as in Jack's picture above. And dried fruit, like maybe dates.

Turnip Truck recently started carrying Bella Nashville Bakery loaves, and I'm crazy for noshing on the whole-wheat desem, but it's not really a desk drawer item.

My most indulgent item: a box of Bumble Bees from Colt Chocolates. They're like Turtles only local and much tastier.

Re: “Gus's World Famous Hot & Spicy Chicken Is Coming to Nashville

Ate there last night -- 4 pieces of the best chicken on the planet. Chocolate chess pie, cup of sweet tea... Fantastic. No, it's not that mindless juvenile/macho "how hot can you take it?" nonsense -- Nashville has enough of that crap already. Gus's is about the CHICKEN. Not the sides, not the silverware, not the spicy, not even the service (which has been stellar every time I've been). It's about the CHICKEN, and it is the best tasting chicken there is. Period.

Re: “New East Nashville Food Tour Is Not Just for Tourists ... and Not Just About Food

I'd love to see this expand to other parts of town. It's a great idea. I'd also love a weekend or evening alternative for those of us with 9-5 jobs.

Re: “Sam of Sam's Sushi Is Joining Upcoming Acme Restaurant on Lower Broad

Sam is now open at the Acme, and it's a bummer. Tiny rolls, double or triple the price, and he isn't even making the sushi himself.
