What I learned this week in the cafeteria

This was my first full week of school in a long time.  It was exhausting.  Between school holidays and sick kids I haven't had to work five days in a row in a month.  This is what I learned this week.
  • No matter the combo, kids will eat it.  We served BBQ ribs, broccoli soup and chocolate pudding and the kids liked it. 
  • Lettuce doesn't clean up very easily.
  • No matter how many times you explain things to elementary students explaining them again is a requirement.  Even though we are approaching the 100th day of school some students were surprised to learn they had to pay for milk.
  • If you stuff a cheeseburger into a pita you can call it a gyro and pretend that it is a greek meal.
  • I learned that if you live in PA you must own camouflage.  That way you can be prepared when your elementary school has "Camo Day". 
I was not prepared and had to borrow some camo pants and a hat from neighbors.  My son asked me if we were hunting chicken.  I don't know about that but I looked pretty hot in my camo.

What did you learn this week?

This gives me an idea for a Fun & Games with Jenners ... a food combination that elementary school children would NOT eat. Do you think you could run the tests in your cafeteria?

Love the combo idea. I should try it here at home to get my picky ones to eat something new. Funny that you had to find camouflage.

The combinations in our cafeteria always amaze me too. Never seem to faze the kids, though!
