Food Breaks at the Dig

In my post Early Morning at the Dig I mentioned that we get to Lachish at about 5:00am.

We board the bus before getting any breakfast, so we always look forward to the food breaks during the dig.

Here is a picture of the break area at the dig. You can see the large shaded area. Inside are several rows of tables to sit at during the breaks.

The first break of the day is the coffee break and comes at 7:00am. At this break there are fixings for making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and usually some other goodies like chocolate wafers.

However, most people are headed to the water and coffee table. I usually make a sandwich and enjoy it with a cup of hot chocolate.

The next break comes at 9:00am and is the actual breakfast. We take a little bit longer break at this time.

For breakfast there is bread and tuna with a type of spread that is delicious. There are also trays of cucumbers and tomatoes. I usually load up on cucumbers. You can also see hard boiled eggs, cheese, yogurt and cereal. I always get a nice bowl of cereal and milk.

Later comes my favorite break of the day. At 11:00am it is time for watermelon break. On some days there is also muskmelon (cantaloupe) or apples.

However, it is the watermelon that I like. See my post: Eating Watermelon

After the watermelon break it is back to our squares until it is time to board the busses at 1:00am and head back to Kedma Village for lunch.
