One of the most difficult things I have to do at work is negotiate lunch once or twice a week. You would think that I would have a hard time getting them to pick somewhere that offers #GF food. But, that isn’t it at all. I have a harder time getting them to chose something that doesn’t have a drive-thru window on the side of the building.
I work in the middle of down town Milwaukee. We are surrounded by a wide array of Amazing restaurants. When the discussion for lunch comes up on Thursday or Friday afternoons my co-workers usually suggest one of the following – Panda Express, Potbellies, Chipotle, Jimmy Johns or Dominoes.
I try, over and over again to get them to try one of our great local restaurants. But, every week I fail. But, today there was a break through…..for them, not really for me. We are getting lunch from Noodles & Co. And, they are so proud because there is one dish on the menu I can order! So, I will be participating and smiling along as I eat my Pad Thai with Shrimp for lunch.
I am determined to get them to realize what great food this city really has to offer!!
