Hello, everyone, and welcome to Week 4 of the 2013 season of LUNCH JUDGMENT! I hope that I enjoy myself.
If you're new here, this is how it works:
1. You leave a comment below, describing the lunch you have eaten or are eating today.
2. Time permitting, I will respond with a comment of my own. I will rate your lunch on a scale of one to 10, and I will do my best to explain my rationale.
3. You will accept this ruling as accurate, absolute, and superseding of all municipal, state, and federal rulings.
Last week, I introduced a new rule: if you submit a picture of your lunch with your description between now and 4:30 p.m Eastern, I guarantee I will rate it. Otherwise, I will simply work my way down chronologically and rate as many lunches as I can.
I will start. You can see a photo of my lunch above: a sandwich of minced pork, arugula and mustard on sourdough bread, made at home. The sourdough bread, as it tends to be, was quite nice. I would assess the sandwich as merely "decent," because I should have done so much more to spice it up, and I failed to add a side. Some broccoli, for instance, would have made this lunch far better. As it stands, I will give myself a 6.0/10 rating.
Please do better. Please do not do much worse.
