The Tenant’s Lunch

Healthy Tenant’s Lunch

One of our offices has been surplus to requirements for some time.  So Anne-Marie did what all enterprising Dutchies fiscally responsible managers do… rent it out!  The issue with that approach is that one often ends up with someone who does things a bit differently working alongside the core team.

I have to say it works really well for us – or at least it did until the tenant decided to revert to his British roots as far as his lunch time diet was concerned.   Baked beans are an aquired taste at the best of time but when they become the main event on the plate they take on a whole new dimension!

Needless to say that our Italian gourmet Massimo and Jack from Mainland China had a few comments on the smells wafting from the kitchen.  And yours truly, naturally, had a few thoughts on the matter as well.

For starters, I remembered back to the days when I was frequenting London transport cafes for breakfast… Eggs, Bacon, Sausage, Tomato and Baked Beans, with a couple of slices of buttered toast on the side and a steaming hot cup of tea.  Yum.  It  appealed surprisingly well to my Germanic tastebuds.

My second thought was – where do baked beans actually fit in terms of their relation to the produce category?  Fresh they ain’t, but then neither are frozen peas.  The tenant is trying to convince me that baked beans are healthy….

We will look into that and revert in due course.
