This week I made turkey and noodles for around 150 people. We had carrots and mashed potatoes and
The day following we served fish sandwiches. They came pre-made and frozen. All we had to do was bake and bun them along with tri-corner hash browns, baked beans, and canned peaches.
Want to take a guess at which meals got us a giant, community, "THANK YOU!!" from the kindergarten through 2nd grade lunch class? Which meal resulted in no less than 10 Junior High students coming to the kitchen to sing its praises? Which meal made the third and fourth graders debate it merits and decide it was nearly the best thing we've yet to cook?
If you guessed the frozen fish sandwiches, you would be correct.
Truth be told, my feelings were not at all hurt. The past 2 months have taught me that something I love, the kids will dump in the trash and things I won't touch with a 10 foot pole. I do not take their refusal to eat something personally but I do really love being told they enjoyed something- even when I have little to do with it's actual preparation.
In other good work news- Miss T and I had a visit from the health inspector this week and we aced our inspection. Not bad for a couple of newbies.
