Today’s menu: chili, green beans, tortilla chips, orange, milk
It could be so much worse so I’m feeling quite grateful for that. The chili wasn’t as bad as the veggie chili I had last week. It makes me wonder if it’s harder to make veggie chili than the meat version.
The green beans were good. I didn’t have a chance to eat the orange because I simply ran out of time. I still want to approach a decision-maker about slicing the oranges prior to offering them to students.
Here’s a transcript of my mini-conversation with a student about today’s lunch:
Mrs. Q: “What did you eat for lunch today?”
Student: “Chips” while making a dipping motion.
Mrs. Q: “What did you dip the chips in?”
Mrs. Q (easy follow-up): “Was is chili?”
Mrs. Q: “Are you sure?”
Mrs. Q: “Did you eat the green beans?”
Mrs. Q: “Did you eat the orange?”

(See what I mean about how they never want to discuss their lunches?!)
