such an interesting mix at lunch
sugar cookies, grated parmesan cheese, and red pepper flakes
it made me wonder a bit
when I inquired I was told
the cheese and peppers were there
because they were serving Italian food in the kitchen
and the cookies were there
because this was their new location
and I kind of loved
the ‘no logical reason’ reason for the combination
it made it even better
and why not after all?
“things have to be funny first, and if they want to have a point, that’s awesome.”
a stop by a pub with a cozy fireplace
for a leisurely quiet lunch
and then i saw this –
a menu note at the bottom
‘bottomless fountain pop and vanilla ice cream’ for children
things could quickly go in a different direction.
“i accept that there may be things far grander
and more incomprehensible than we can possibly imagine.’

nothing like a lunch
when it’s taco day
it takes it to
a whole other level
one little guy
upon seeing the taco
filled to the edge
with all sorts
of colorful things
put on his plate
he would ever manage
to get it
into his mouth
away from the floor
‘i’m going to need chopsticks to eat this’
i always admire those
out of the box thinkers
well played little man
and i must admit
i hadn’t thought of that
but we may
have to call in
the big guns
for this one
meet the eatensil

part of my life as a full-day kindergarten teacher is having lunch with the kids 3 days a week. it’s especially fun because the pre-kindergartneners also share our table, and while we might not get much time to eat, it never fails to be exciting and i am endlessly fascinated by their take on the food.
here are some chickeny stripnuggetstick things
here are some fishy stripnuggetstick things
they are never quite sure what to ask for, or what we’re having, when wanting more.
every year, someone declares themselves to suddenly be a ‘bege-tarian’,
because they like animals.
and they stop eating any meat,
but somehow they don’t identify our nuggetstickstrip items as meat,
and i understand completely.
and i loved the day when one of them asked for syrup to go on their foodstripnuggety item.
why do you want syrup, i asked?
aren’t these french toast strips?, they answered.
i’m not really sure, but let’s go with that.
Part of the secret of success in life is to eat what you like and let the food fight it out inside.
perfect for the discerning tastes of our 3-5 year olds?
Good Day All,
Just a reminder that tomorrow will be our “Chef 2 School” program and we will be featuring “World of Cheeses”. Once again we will set up in the back hallway behind the small dining room and I will be coming around to release the tables to visit our “World of Cheeses”.
We are also excited to say that this time we plan on including the Early Childhood Center with a cart that will go from table to table with samples of different cheeses.
