Lunch from Specialties, San Francisco, CA

Fruit Salad, Regular Salad and Roast Beef Salad
This was a lunch catered in at work and it was ok. Alexis isn't really a fan of Specialties, with their squishy bread and stingy fillings. The fruit was good though.

A composed salad is always pretty, and this one was very tasty as well. It was composed of avocado, fresh mozzerella, tomato, pickled asparagus and salami. This is a quick meal that is very satisfying.

Quick Snack from Pizza Hut, Las Vegas, NV

I'm not sure if it was all night carousing, jack and waters, massive gambling losses or the greasy cardboard tasting personal pan pizza that I grabbed before running to the airport that caused my digestive problems on the plane, but I'm leaning toward the 'za.
