Lessons from the Lunchlady: guard your va jay jay

This week in the school cafeteria the kids learned that it's good to try new things and that a little green won't kill you.

I learned:

It's possible to run out of asparagus. Seriously? I never would have guessed those kids would not only be open to trying asparagus but that some would actually be excited about it.

Refried beans did not meet with the same enthusiasm. Sadly the refried beans I served with nacho dippers this week were not nearly as popular. It's all about appearence with K-3 kids and if it looks like baby poop well then... Honestly, they weren't that bad.

Say my name, say my name. I'm happy to report that I now know about 95% of the names of the new students in our building who actually eat lunch. The others remain a mystery....

If you're waiting for the milk man... Wait, what did you think I was gonna say? I had only 12 milk in the house for breakfast as I had significantly high breakfast countd. Milkdude is supposed to arrive BEFORE breakfast. Not at the start of breakfast. Oh well... Everything worked out.

Guard your va jay jay. I mean who would have thought that by simply bringing dishes into the dish room you could be plowed in the crotch by a random dish rack. My coworker didn't see me. I need to make A LOT more noise.

What did you learn this week?

PS. I'm going to attempt to feature photos from our actual lunches. This week's photo features our Tuesday Chef Salads. They tasted just as great as the looked.

You learned some good ones this week, I wouldn't have thought the kids would want asparagus either.
I learned that there was a "Chopped" episode where they had 4 lunch ladies competing. Great episode, hope you got to see it!

Your chef's salads look fantastic! I would totally eat one.

Oh! Oh! I forgot about those dish rack... you could sew some sleigh bells on your apron therefore everybody will hear you whenever you're entering the dish room.

I first thought about hanging a cow bell around your neck but that wouldn't be like... elegant, eh?
