BC Diary: Officials’ Cuisine

BC operations at the NAC this weekend in Milwaukee are similar enough to those last month in Cincinnati that I’m opting this time for a change of pace: a glimpse of the lunches provided to tournament officials this season.

I didn’t take any food photos on Friday, so I’m missing the both the turkey and vegetarian sandwiches we were served then (with sandwich rolls that Khrushchev could have used for pounding at the UN), but here’s Saturday’s salad as packaged:

Here’s what it looked like inside:

And here’s a better look at the pasta salad—Meredith says it looked like miniature body organs, so she thought it deserved a photo of its own:
