Great post at the Google Blog. Two of my favorite things: Google and food. A sample of Google's daily menu is posted up to show potential hires what they need to produce on a daily basis.

Anyway, Google's cafeteria is the best I've visited. If I worked there, I would serious have weight control issues. Check out a sample:
