I'm working far from home. Yesterday we were told that our working hours would make it impossible to go out and shop for food during the day, or to go to restaurants for lunch or dinner. We talked about bringing in substantial snack food, but made no definite decisions. I like to shop for food, so I bought a batch of stuff. Looking at my purchases, I really hoped that I would not be the only person bringing food. I'm on a low cholesterol diet, and my choices were basically this: the food your Vegan mother would like you to eat.
Fortunately I was not the only snack-bringer. We have a great smorgasbord to tide us through the days, and -- of course -- my choices did not duplicate anyone else's.
