Weekly Photo Challenge: Lunchtime

Lunchtime lately has been from the students’ cooking at the Carrick Cafe.  You’ll see a couple of orders in takeout boxes and containers below. I thought this week’s challenge a fun one to create.

WordPress is hoping for some “offbeat interpretations, mouthwatering photos”.  The photos are supposed to be taken with a phone.  I got that about half right. Once I started searching I had to just stop as there were too too many images of meals consumed at lunchtime!

I think of lunchtime as a short time, dictated by bells.  Here is a lunchtime medley from the archives.  Some shots I probably would not have blogged before.

And from the online etymology dictionary 

lunch (n.) “mid-day repast,” 1786, shortened form of luncheon (q.v.). The verb meaning “to take to lunch” (said to be from the noun) also is attested from 1786:

But as late as 1817 the only definition of lunch in Webster’s is “a large piece of food.” OED says in 1820s the word “was regarded either as a vulgarism, or as a fashionable affectation.” Related: Lunched; lunching. Lunch money is attested from 1868; lunch-time (n.) is from 1821; lunch hour is from 1840. Slang phrase out to lunch “insane, stupid, clueless” first recorded 1955, on notion of being “not there.” Old English had nonmete “afternoon meal,” literally “noon-mea

Three Dog Ride – Weekly Photo Challenge: Unique

Three Dog Ride

Three Dog Ride in Central Park NYC

WordPress puts out the Weekly Photo Challenge and this week it is UNIQUE.

 I tried to find photos that seemed a tad quirky and not an everyday shot.

Some may be familiar to you if you follow the blog. One of a kind?

Fun to go fishing for some examples for unique.

Bruno’s Gastro Truck Near Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia

We had just seen the Ice Cream Float Boat on the lake.

Food trucks are hot, hot, hot these days.

Spotted Bruno’s Gastro Truck in the parking lot as we were stopping to buy a few rolls of duct tape at Capps Home Building Center .  Anna was going to make a duct tape wallet for her Dad’s birthday present.

We’d just been boating with the family with a rented pontoon boat on Smith Mountain Lake and we were headed back to Hardy, VA.  Next time we’ll have to try something to eat from this shiny truck.


Ray Ray’s Hog Pit – Clintonville, OH

In Laura and James’ neighborhood, I see a lot of people lined up at this food truck whenever it is open- Ray Ray’s Hog Pit in Clintonville.  I read that on Sunday they feature a special of grass fed beef brisket.  Laura and James are veg so we’ve eaten at the Whole World Natural Restaurant & Bakery across the street or at their home.  But one of these visits I am going to get in this line and see why everyone is willing to wait in the chill air, order up and eat! It must be really good.  In fact, I think one weekend I should make a tour of Columbus Food Trucks  Here is one review
