Lessons from the Lunchlady: the battle of Green Bean vs. Celery

Happy Friday!  This week was a bustle of excitement in the cafeteria.  We had some of our largest counts to date and I think the kindergartners are starting to get the swing of things. 
Here's what I learned.

  • Peanut Butter Popsicle:  It's important to get the frozen uncrustables out of the freezer as soon as you come in.  If you don't, you will realize at lunch time that you have no alternate and will have to change to yogurt munchables.  Turns out some kids like yogurt, cheese and goldfish crackers more than pizza.  BONUS.
  • There is no macaroni on my tray, said a little kindergartner who took the wrong lunch by mistake. It truly is disappointing when you sit down and realize everyone's lunch looks better than yours.
  • Who's your teacher?  I asked a first grader in the lunch line this week who her teacher was.  Her response, "I have no idea but it's that lady right over there."  Seriously?  It's almost been a month?
  • Celery kicked Green Beans Ass:  In an unprecedented match up, Celery came from behind to literally kick the crap out of green beans in a head to head.  I guess even after four years I can still be surprised.
  • Is that a spy camera?  I was being interviewed about the recent changes to school lunch and the videographer had a microphone near the lunch line.  A couple of kids thought it was a spy camera.  I think they've been reading a little too much LUNCHLADY.  I so need some of those fish stick nunchuks.
What did you learn this week?

I would, for sure, take that celery over green beans any day. But it does surprise me that it won' out with the kids.
I learned that if you keep making cards and don't send them out to anyone, after a while you are totally over run with them. Gotta find an outlet!
