What's for Lunch - Thurs., 10/28

Our tasty menu today includes:

Oven-roasted Chicken Breast
Zesty Brown Rice


Salad Bar
Fresh Fruit

This is frozen chicken on the bone that we roast in olive oil, salt and pepper.  The rice has sauteed onions, salt, pepper and cumin.  The broccoli will be sauteed with olive oil and garlic - unless they run out of skillets (seriously.)  in which case it will be roasted.  Three cheers for the cooks who will pull this great lunch off one way or another. This is all just real, whole food cooked and served to our children.

But that's not all! We also get a salad bar today.  The bar will have two kinds of cheese, chic peas, romaine lettuce, and raw vegetables among other things - including croutons. At Sea Cliff at least, the salad is put together by the cafeteria workers to order for the kids.  The dressings are Balsamic Vinegar, Ranch and Caesar. Click each one to be linked back to ingredient lists. Read about Balsamic Vinegar here: filtered water, organic soybean oil, organic balsamic vinegar, organic sugar, salt, organic white vinegar, organic minced garlic, organic garlic powder, organic onion powder, organic black pepper, organic red bell pepper granules, xantham gum.

Let's talk about those salad dressings.  At the high school they've been practicing making all their dressings from scratch. Yes - fresh, homemade salad dressing.  Come November, our food services dept will begin rolling out these fresh dressings to all our schools. Enjoy.

Fresh Fruit.
