Have you seen this Jimmy Fallon bit with Blake Shelton?
And no, I don’t mean the kind you did in elementary school when your mom sent a tuna sandwich AGAIN.
An excerpt via Bon Appetit:
I discovered that the daily “Lunch Swap” routine began late last year, when associate marketing director Hillary Smith rallied four of her co-workers to alternate making and bringing home-cooked meals to share. Inspired by Julia Kramer’s James Beard Award-nominated “Lunch Al Desko” story in our April 2014 issue, the group wanted to add an element of community to re-thinking the midday meal. Now they can’t imagine workdays without the variety, pleasure, and economy of putting time and care into cooking for one another on assigned days. Since all five swappers are adventurous eaters without dietary restrictions, their food rules are relaxed, and the focus is on enjoying relatively healthy meals rich in flavor and texture.
I love the idea in theory. But as a somewhat picky eater, the notion of putting myself in others’ hands like this makes me anxious.
Have you doing something like this? What recipes would you use?

“Come over. I’ll make us brunch. With bacon!”

“I want French toast. :-(” I texted back like a spoiled brat.
