Hot Lunch in the City

Chef: Lisa & Jenny

Perfectly fluffy, perfectly Cuban "Arroz Amarillo Con Frijoles Negros", with a healthy dose of stewed tomatoes, organic carrots, fresh parsley, and Lisa's utterly elaborate "Seaside Collards" (collards boiled in heavily-salted water).

The Goods:
While the song-inspired title of today’s meal is fun, it is slightly misleading; the VNHQ is officially located in San Francisco, but our desks are a mere hundred feet from the ocean. So today, on the hottest day of ‘08 to date, a few of us chowed down this delicious, colorful spread and then took a leisurely stroll on the beach before commencing our afternoon’s work. Do any of you have an awesome workday locale like this?
