It's LUNCH TIME!

Mimi Smartypants is one of my favorite old school bloggers. The other day she mentioned that she had been googling school lunches and found this. I am fascinated. I don’t want to look, but I can’t stop. It’s…yeah, it’s profound.

I wasn’t big on school lunches myself. I know that I ate them until I could figure out how to make my own but I don’t really remember them being quite this…bad. I know there are a lot of issues with school lunches these days, with the vending machines and lack of funding and whatnot but please tell me that …italian-dunkers are is not what I think they are. Please tell me that this is not white bread and spaghetti sauce, a string cheese and some…corn. In what world does corn go with pizza? In what nutrition textbook is this considered appropriate?

Look, I know kids, I know it can be a struggle to get them to eat healthfully. I know that most kids would choose corn over spinach any day but please…this is Wonder Bread and Ragu! No wonder kids are getting all their food from the vending machines.

There are at least nine variations on the pizza theme here and none of them look appealing. Although I have to say that the taco-tub does not scare me nearly as much as it should. I might eat that. But probably not with the fruit cup and bread.

Oh Oh! One more! Because I only just dared to look at the “Taco Patty.” Go look. Heh. Oh, you’ll have nightmares now.

Ok, here’s the thing. Cooking is not that hard, even cooking for a large group, still not that hard. Cooking on a tight budget when you only get paid minimum wage yourself so why should you care what the screaming little brats like…that’s hard. Ooooh wait! Look at the size of that …apple! Hmm, a little more research reveals that as far as the government and lunchladies are concerned, corn does indeed go with pizza, and also with spaghetti. And apparently, at Ware County, GA schools…

Steamed cabbage goes with tacos. Who knew? An the Glynn County schools (also in GA) offer something called the “Totally Taco Max Snax”which intrigues and frightens me at the same time.

Hmmm, why am I suddenly hungry for fish sticks, tater tots and stewed tomatoes?

Bummer that the links aren't working, although I'm feeling pretty nauseated just reading the stuff. I was so thankful for the $1 salad bar at my 2nd high school (11th and 12th grade). Granted, I was borderline anorexic, so didn't eat much anyway. Mostly Spree for lunch. In Texas (9th and 10th grade) I ate a lot of Frito pies and Little Debbie Star Crunches. That's nutrition, baby!

I must say, I had tater tots the other night and fish sticks are one of the few ways I'll even consider eating fish. Keep your stewed tomatoes though!
