Why Monz Ain't From Rockford, Part Three!

He likes Cheap Trick. If you're from Rockford, it's not enough to like Cheap Trick. And we're pretty sure that nobody in Rockford today had McDougall's Pad Thai Soup, an apple and a banana for lunch.

Why Monz Ain't From Rockford - Part Two!

We can't get him to go to Toad Hall! Maybe if we bribed him with a Leno's Leno's 10" vegwich, no onions. Or maybe not: "Too much food in the last two days. Back to starving tomorrow."

Why Monz Ain't From Rockford, Part One!

He'd fail this test! But he passed his midday meal orals: A road trip down Washington Street with Mrs. Monz to Pampanga Express, a Philippine outfit. No menus -- all food served from a buffet type device covered by glass. You just point and they scoop. He had the "lunch special" for 5.95 which was three entrees + rice. The entrees were sweet sausage, some spicy stuff that was spicy and unidentifiable, and some kind of beefy looking stew with onions. Dessert was red bean cakes. "It was good, but mostly it was an adventure." [This sounds yummy and now I want to go - Travel Editor]

No wonder they call him "Dr. Lunch!"

Clark McDerment!

Today Monz ate McDougal's miso ramen and an apple for lunch.

Clowns to the Left of Him, Jokers to the Right!
Life's not easy as a tri-county attorney, so Monz fortifies with lunch of McDougall's pad thai soup, apple, and two "small peach-like things."

Beware of "places" that have awful selections of beverages to go with your lunch, especially an over-mustared footlong veggie delight. But no need to beware the Ides of March, they'll be playing Sunday, August 9th!@

Take It to the Limit!

Saturday August 8th it's Spread Eagle: A Tribute to the Eagles. We're tributing miso soup by a good doctor who would also approve of a special assortment of fruit.

Can't Buy Me Lunch!

Kicking things off August 5th will be "simply the best Beatles tribute story of our time:" American English! (We wonder what the Liverpool Legends might have to say about that, but anyway...) But will they love-love-me-do a Mcdougall's curry, apple, banana and a not-ripe peach (which Monz didn't each) lunch? We think not.

Three Ring Circus!

Three worlds are atwitter (if not a Twitter) over whether Mark Monz and family will be making the trek over to Northbrook for their Northbrook Days Festival, one which has been host to many a Monz adventure. We're going to take a look at some of the main stage acts that are tempting the Monz this year! But we're pretty sure the food booths won't have Mcdougall's miso ramen, apple, banana, and tiny peach-like things.

Box 'Ya Dude!
A special man-on-the-moon-anniversery Monzy to Buzz Aldrin, who does to obnoxious jerks who invade his space what Monz does to fake and intermitent lunch bloggers!
And Monz lunch of McDougal's veggie chicken flavored ramen (with grapefruit banana and apple) will put you over the moon!

High Pre-Ebook Ist!

Subway: footlong veggie delite. "Baked Doritos just because i've been starving myself and didn't feel real good today."

30/20 Girl!

Mcdougall's hot sour, apple, banana, orange. Oranges making a slight comeback.

I Wish That I Had Jesse Girl!

First in a series of screenshots from a recent ebay listing. Monz' seventh blog year kickoff lunch is first of a series of a very different kind! Mcdougall's baked not fried ramen, apple, banana, orange (the oranges definitely not being up to Monz standards of late).

The Joy of SIX!

What was once startling and amazing is now simply amazing: that's right, it's our
sixth anniversary as the greatest, arguably only, lunch blog on the Internet. And of course, dear readers, so much more! Despite the brief, albiet powerful, blogging of late, the Editors have big plans for the coming year. And Monz has big plans for the coming lunches. Thank you comrades in lunch! Today he had an extra special anniversary lunch: Mcdougall's miso ramen, apple, banana, and an orange.

The Total Transformation!

Mcdougall's hot and sour soup, apple, banana, and an orange. Yes, it will bring peace to your house. Trust us.

Make That Change!

Veggie sub from 'Ay! Tonay!'s: extra hot peppers and olive salad on the side. Sprite Zero.

Don't Stop Till You Get Enough!

Near ditto, but the mcdougall's is spring onion noodle soup. And it's working -- Monz is shedding weight faster than the Sunday Trib is shedding its tv guide section!

We're Looking at the Lunch in the Mirror!

We're asking it to change its ways...not! A classic delite: McDougall's Ramen (baked, not fried), apple, banana and navel orange.

If They Ask Why? Why? Tell Them That It's Human Nature!

With a switft move worthy of an expert dancer, Monz replenishes his McDougall's bare cupboard with an early morning trip to WF, resulting in a lunch of mcdougall's pad thai soup, apple, banana and navel orange.

World's Greatest Newspaper/King of Pop Tribute Week!

This week we honor the redesign of the Sunday Chicago Tribune and the general trend taken by the World's Greatest Newspaper under the enlightened leadership of its latest owner Sam "Give 'Em Hell" Zell, and the late King of Pop (because what could go better together?)!

McDougall's black bean soup, apple, three clementines. (Did you know they took out the book review section a year ago?)

Friday, July 03, 2009


This message was not approved by Monz. But this lunch was: The Lantern in Lake Forest(!) for a Thai Wrap with cole slaw. And water, which is important!

Have a rockin' independence day weekend from all of us at MYL!

Thursday, July 02, 2009


McDougall's Hot and Sour soup, an apple and because Monz went shopping last night and replenished the fruit supply, a banana and a few clementines!

Mcdougall's tortilla soup and an apple.
