Burgers, Shakes, and Fries for Lunch

December 17, 2013

As a defiant response to Sad Desk Lunches, the Food52 team works to keep our midday meals both interesting and pretty. Each week, we'll be sharing our happiest desk lunches -- and we want to see yours, too.

Today: Not Sad Desk Lunch goes out for lunch -- and brings you a treat.

We've been so good.

We've eaten our kale and our beans, our piles of vegetables. We've roasted a chicken, and stretched it for a week. We've been making lunches that are good and healthy and sustaining -- ones we're proud to share with all of the internet.

But sometimes, you have to treat yourself. And if there is a time to treat yourself, it is right now.

So yes, we are advocating burgers, shakes, and fries for lunch (ours were from Shake Shack) -- preferably for the whole office. Because it's the holidays, and you're working hard, and the kale and the quinoa and the beans are for another time.

We can promise: this is not a sad desk lunch.
