Today was a really good day! We had 5 kids come in for lunch which is a pretty good number of kids. They all loved the main sandwich. It was a chicken and chickpea patty! The salad bar had a lot of roasted items. It’s amazing what roasting can do to a vegetable or a fruit. The special option that if the kids tried they would get a prize was baked peaches. The peaches were simply wedged and baked at 375 until they turned a darker golden brown. They were so tasty and sweet. The kids were all excited to try them, so they could get the prize. Of course :). I’m not really sure what they thought of them though, they weren’t very expressive.
There was also homemade apple sauce and sour plum popsicles! The kids really liked the applesauce. The popsicles went over well but the first words after trying were “Wow these are sour” but then they kept on enjoying them. Now onto the fun stuff…the pictures!
