This week was filled with wild and crazy children and a lot of menu changes. Here's what I learned:
- Snow days make elementary children forget everything they have learned. Including how to walk through the lunch line, how to discard the food on their trays and whether or not they want grape or strawberry PB&J.
- Sprinkling pears with jello powder is stupid and doesn't make children eat them. It's especially important to remember to order red jello if you want them to look like "blushing pears." It's best not to substitute green jello as this only makes them look like moldy pears.
- Ravioli's aren't very popular but the kids who order them LOVE them.
- Any changes to the menu, even those neccesitated by a blizzard, will cause mayhem and foolishness.
- Spiders can live on apples in the middle of winter and they still make me jump.
- I'm a 41 year old (gasp) freelance writer, school cafeteria manager, wife and mother. I have three children and one anxious and overweight beagle. I use my blog to make others laugh, to share some cool crafts, to document my lunchlady adventures and to lament about the challenges faced by us all on the journey called life. Thanks for visiting. Please leave some crack...um...I meant some comments.
