Skip the filters and the art of cropping--we are going old school.....DESCRIBE your (or your character's) lunches! So whatever it is you're eating or ate earlier, or would love to eat, describe it! Don't be afraid to be silly, and don't skimp on the details. What color is it? What does it taste like? What does it remind you of? If you make it into a poem--that would be even better!

Veggie Burger? Is it worth it?

Today for lunch i had a pretty fulling salad. I had put in iceberg lettuce and a salad greens mix, even though it has spinach and i cant stand it. I then put in wheat berries, which are small pea sized grain that dont have much of a flavor. I …

If it feels good, tastes good, it must be mine

There are crackers. So many crackers. Portable, and don’t require heat or cold. Ritz crackers and club crackers. Some of them have bologna, and most of them have cheese. Fake cheese, which I get crap about from my friends, but fake cheese is delicious and I will defend it until …


I know some of your first thoughts are going to be “EWW” or “GROSS!”, but let me explain with a little poem…

Never raw, always cooked
Shrimp or crab, nothing else is good
If the two are put together, that’s the best!
In my opinion, they are better than the …

Burger Night

Well now that the murder of Johnny in our town has been resolved and life has started to get back to normal, Tumbleweed Saloon has opened back up for business and I (Agnus) start working again tomorrow. Before I started back up I wanted to have dinner with my good …

Thoughts during a Meal

The sticky grease underneath my finger nails, the smell of Ringo sitting next to me, begging for food, and the thought of Johnny keeps me from eating. How could he have died? Why did he have to go, yet, who did this? I look down and continue to eat as …

Writing Assignment – Instagram Is Down…DESCRIBE Your Lunch To Me!

Lunch with Victor Barethean

Assignment (4 stars)

This week, I met up with Victor Barethean for a nice lunch. I had never met Victor before, but I had heard of him during my time hosting the Edward Creeper Show. Victor seemed like a casual, laid-back individual when we first met at the local diner. …

Morlium’s Lunch

I am not a fan of instagram. I AM a fan of assignments poking fun at instagram. I am not a fan of people describing food. I AM a fan of food in general though, so I figured I would have to compromise. Besides, the ol’ vocabulary could always use …

With some California red to drink
Potatoes mashed with butter and salt

Except the wine, that comes ready to drink
Sear your steak on high in …
