Who  Gabrielle Arnold, partner of La Empanada food truck and publisher of Honest Fare 

Where  Winter Park, Florida

Time 12pm today, but it all depends on what time I had for breakfast and what's going on that day! 

What's a typical lunch for you? If I'm cooking for work or the blog, I'll just have some of whatever I'm already making, and it's often not a proper lunch at all! Yesterday, it was a giant bowl of potato salad and some asparagus. And now that we have the empanada food truck, I find myself eating the fillings we're cooking for the empanadas that day. On my own time though, I'll have a salad with some whole grains or an egg. Today, I'm having lunch on my front porch. A couple of hearty slices of pumpernickel bread layered with avocado, a little lemon juice, thinly sliced golden delicious apples, cucumbers, and radishes, all topped with goat cheese and a nice drizzle of olive oil, grey sea salt and cracked black pepper. 

What's your dream/ideal lunch? My dream lunch is a little spread of veggies, cheeses, smoked or pickled fish, olives, bread and some good mustard. As long as I'm anywhere outside, I'm happy.

Dessert with lunch?  Not usually, but a piece of black licorice is always nice! 

Thanks Gabrielle!
