Goal #1 of the 2010-2011 School Year

Okay, so this school year, one of my goals was to bring my lunch every day so I could avoid paying $2 for a lunch from the cafeteria which provides little to no nutrition and is less than appetizing.

I made it two weeks.

Yesterday I bought my first school lunch and could barely choke down the frito pie. The corn I took one bite of and then decided I was done.

Today was "chicken" sandwich with mac and cheese and sliced apples. I managed to get the "chicken" sandwich down with half a bottle of Sunkist, the mac and cheese was okay but I just wasn't in the mood for it and the apples tasted like floor cleaner.

I wish Jamie Oliver would come to our school and do a food revolution. I'm sure he would have no opposition.

How did we ever think that stuff was so delicious in school? Did you love pizza day? For some reason I did, but now looking at it the "pepperoni" was tiny cubes barely noticeable to the naked eye and the cheese is basically plastic. So gross... bringing your lunch is way cooler!

Well, if you're taking your lunch every day (if you decide to take it up again), I'd like to know what you are packing. Lunch is the hardest meal for me to figure out. Sandwiches get old pretty quickly. Good luck!

Mattie, yes, I did love pizza day. And I have worked in schools before where the lunches were actually good but not at the school I am at now. It makes me want to gag.
Marisa, mostly it is sandwiches or leftovers. Sometimes I use pita bread instead of regular bread, sometimes I take a frozen dinner, sometimes I take a can of soup, or anything I can just grab and go that doesn't take a lot of prep work.
