Today’s menu: hamburger, whole wheat buns, carrots, fruit jello, milk
The burger was forgettable. And I mean that in every sense: I don’t remember what it tasted like. Not one bite. Yeah for carrots instead of tater tots (what I usually see with the burger). And the jello was good in a “red number 40” kinda way.
For the first time ever I approached another blogger/foodie/writer/chef that I admire about writing a post for his blog (instead being asked I did the asking). So I screwed up some courage and emailed Mark Bittman. He emailed me back saying he was interested in a piece. I almost fainted. My essay appeared on Mark Bittman’s blog today: “The School Lunch Project“
The reason I approached him aside from having immense respect for him was that he tweeted about my project early on and so I figured he would be amenable. First I wrote something about what I learned over the course of the project. He emailed me back saying that he wanted something with more personalization so I rewrote it completely. It’s sort-of a sad story, but this blog is not exactly uplifting (although I try to keep it upbeat so you guys aren’t too depressed). I hope you enjoy what I wrote (and I appreciate feedback too).
I’d just like to say that at school everyone is ready for summer! The kids AND adults. Just a bit more to go!
