Lunch Pail Envy

When I was still in the states and changing oil for a living; all of the guys I used to work with got so envious of my lunches after a while that they started paying me to bring lunch for everyone. Then when I moved to Italy and started teaching English my colleagues would always barge into my classroom at lunchtime to see what I'd brought that day. Apparently anything more than a sandwich and a soda is a big deal. And forget the holidays...

Anyone ever hound you for your lunch? I know Dhorst brings cakes and pies to her colleagues. Do you take pride in spoiling the crap out of your co-workers? Do you do your best to make the most out of your lunch break even if it makes your office green with envy?
