Food, food everywhere

You know that you are in Oklahoma when there's food, food everywhere.

Left-over cupcakes from a July 4th party made their way to our break area ... these vanished in a few hours.

A Thai restaurant advertising their lunch special: Pad Thai, spring roll, red chicken curry and garlic pork together will run you $6.95 + tax. After feeling dirt poor in Finland (partly due to the weak dollar and partly because it is a few degrees south of the Artic circle), a full-course seven-dollar lunch sounds ridiculously cheap.

The title of the post is an allusion to Coleridge's poem:
Water, water, everywhere,
And all the boards did shrink;
Water, water, everywhere,
Nor any drop to drink.
There's food everywhere in Oklahoma, but it's all edible and nobody's waistline is shrinking.
