Weathered Wednesday

Well, the weather forecasters were WAY off.  We had a 2 hour delay because of some ice but we reached the mid-40's for our temperature by late morning.  I'm really glad that the forecast was wrong because it was a much safer day today as far as travel was concerned.  So, Molly ate the school lunch of chicken nuggets.  I was shocked though when she said that she only got the chicken nuggets, a bread stick and some chilled fruit.  They don't put the entire lunch on the plate anymore, the kids basically order what they want.  When did this happen? When I was in school, you were given everything and it all ran together.  I'm kind of happy in a sense that things don't have to run together anymore but I'm really disappointed that they let the kids order what they want.  No wonder she was starving when she got home.  What if you have a really picky kid and they only order the bread stick?  That doesn't seem like a good lunch or worth $1.75.  Thank goodness we don't buy lunch all that often.
Our main entrée is a turkey sandwich.  Molly requested this with pepper jack cheese and mustard on whole grain bread.  We added a few pea shoots for crunch and flavor.

Our vegetable side is a romaine lettuce salad with cucumber and carrots.  Our dressing is Trader Joe's balsamic dressing.

Our fruit side is blueberries and strawberries.  No, it's not the middle of the summer but thanks to Sam's Club, we can get these all year round.

Finally, our dairy/dessert is Dannon Light and Fit strawberry yogurt.  Most kids would rather something sweeter and more dessert-like, but Molly is just as happy with yogurt as she would be with a chocolate chip cookie.
