I realize I haven’t posted any lunch photos this week – that’s partly because I’ve settled in on one place lately, the lunch buffet at Garibaldi’s. The kid in me gravitates toward the pizza, but the adult in me is starting to look at the other offerings. Yesterday was Thursday pot roast day on the buffet, and they had a really nice vegetable medley. They also had ravioli in meat sauce which was really good, and their salad was too.

That’ll wrap it up for now. Back tomorrow with more news.
