Actual items from the Seven Year Old's school lunch menu for the month of January:
"1/3 less sugar frosted flakes": I'll give you 95% less sugar: Corn Flakes!
"Chicken filet sandwich, steamed broccoli, garden salad w/RF Dresssing, banana, milk": broccoli AND salad: that's double vegetable. Sure, the lunch may offer "<30% fat", but if no kid eats the broccoli and salad, what difference does it make? And what the hell is "RF?" Refried? Refrigerated? Ranch/French?
"Beefaroni": Really? In 2008? Did you ever see Seinfeld?
"Tacos w/ Lettuce, Tomatoes, Cheese, Tomato Soup." Tacos with tomato soup? Hell, why not!
By far the best menu item of the month: Friday January 18th: "Teacher Workday: No School."
I can't wait to see what February brings.
