Hooray for tasty leftovers! I felt like I was reliving St. Patrick’s Day in my lil’ cube.
I used leftover corned beef and cabbage to make a tasty wrap.
I spread a little light Miracle Whip on a whole wheat tortilla to add a little moisture to the roll up.
It was nice ‘n’ tasty!
For dessert I had a small slice of chocolate cake that was served in honor of a coworker’s birthday.
For as much as I love chocolate, I think I prefer vanilla cake with chocolate icing to chocolate cake with vanilla icing. Still, that didn’t stop me from enjoying every last bite of this cake… and licking the remaining icing of the plate. 😉
If I didn’t pack my lunch or go off campus for lunch in high school, I ate the same thing almost every day: a plain bagel with strawberry cream cheese.
Thankfully my friends and I would often leave school at lunchtime and rotate houses and ransack our family’s kitchens, so I didn’t eat on campus all that often my senior year. Before that, however, the bagel and cream cheese combo was my go-to meal.
Did you eat school lunches? Were they tasty or horrible? Nutritious or unhealthy?
My friend Katie sent me a really interesting article yesterday about a teacher who vowed to each school lunches every day.
She’s anonymously documenting her lunches and opinions about the food on her blog Fed Up with Lunch: The School Lunch Project.
The pictures she posted of her lunches look eerily familiar to the school lunches I remember.
I think this woman’s documentation about what children today are fed in school is wonderful and will hopefully open the eyes of some influential people to make positive changes to the meals served to children at school every day.
Great job, “Mrs. Q!”
