Potato cheese soup

It was a perfect day for soup this cold winter day.
Potato cheese soup was the entree today.
Instead of the beloved bacci roll, we served crackers.
This soup is very good and almost all of the students had it.
Clementines were offered on the fruit bar as well as bananas and apple slices.
Wow boiled eggs are really popular. We go through about a hundred or so per day.

Macaroni and Cheese

Macaroni and cheese as well as plain pasta were on the menu today.
Steamed green beans were served as the veggie option.
My experiment with the pictures of trays from various grades was kind of a failure.
All of the students ate their pasta first before I could take a picture and so all of the trays looked the same.
I will try again.

veggie lo mein noodles with egg rolls

Veggie lo mein noodles and vegetarian eggrolls were served today.
Broccoli, cauliflower, celery, carrots, cabbage and green onions were grilled with lo mein noodles.

Forgot to take a pic today but Katherine had a great suggestion about pics,
Katherine suggested that I take pictures of student trays from different grades, this way you will get to see
what the students are choosing as their side dishes, once we give them their entree.
It can be an entirely different meal, eaten by students who are sitting at the same table.
Some of our students eat fruit and salad as their main entree with half of a sandwich.
Most of our students eat the daily entree with salad and fruit as side dishes.
So it will be interesting to compare the grades and what they choose.

Chicken gravy over basmati rice was served today.
The chicken is roasted, chopped and added to the gravy.

I make 75 cups of basmati rice.
Don't tell anyone but the rice has onions in it, as well as parsley.

Wow the curry was outstanding. This is a recipe from Katherine.
We had some brave students who tried it for the first time and loved it.

Beef stew was the main entree today. It was perfect on this cold winter day.
Our stew is full of potatoes, carrots and of course beef.
Don't tell anyone but its also full of onions, they are pureed.
We always have a vegetarian option, todays was lentil soup.
This is my favorite soup. I have never had a better lentil soup.
