    I like your menu- I pack my lunch, too, and I LOVE tuna sandwiches and I also snakc on homemade dips and pretzels and crisp veggies. The book club sounds fun, too!
    I see you list Baltimore landmarks: are you from there? My friend, Joe Mehl runs a security company there. I haven't been on here very much over the past year and it seems like I forgot everyone; I plan on being on every other day for 2011.

    Sicily, I'm actually in Delaware - so within an hour to hour & 1/2 away from both Baltimore and Philadelphia

    Sounds yummy! I am on week 5 of packing lunches. I have eaten out 3 times, but successfully brown bagged it all other times. What a difference it has made in my spending!

    Keep it up, you're doing great.
