Lessons from the Lunchlady: Stuffing balls, stuffing balls, it's the holiday meal in the kitchen

This week we survived the holiday meal as well as serving the administration building. All turned out fine but damn that meal is messy. The cleanup is practically an entire day.

Here's what I learned:

kids do not know the difference between turkeys and chickens. More than 20 of them said "Miss Wendy, why you got a chicken on you head?" Um does this look like a chicken??

Parent visitation day needs a new name. I've blog about this torture before and am now proposing a name change. It should be called make your child cry day because if you show up and leave then your kid will cry and if you don't show up your kid will cry.

Ripe bannanas + Hershey Chocolate + cookies and cream whipped cream = a little 4 oz cup of heaven. Enough said.

Breakfast stomped on and spit out the holiday meal. Without a doubt, students would rather have pancakes and sausage than Thanksgiving any day of the week. Adults on the other hand arrive in droves for the holiday meal. Go figure.

It must be the "brownies". Which is apparently what the kids were calling the hash browns. Why don't the get that excited for peas???

What did you learn this week???

I would eat just about anything that involved chocolate and whipped cream! Well, within reason! :)

Love the turkey hat!

More great tidbits for us.
What did I learn? Let's see, hmmmmm, I know there is something! I learned that as much as we want people to, they still don't want to follow the rules. Case in point, I have a Black Friday Crop coming up, it's supposed to be a pre-pay crop, 7 people are signed up and exactly 0 have paid for it. Luckily they are pretty much our regular croppers, but still come on ladies!

I want a little cup of heaven... but not if you serve it with that chicken on your head!
