What's for Lunch - Tues., 11/23
The kids will get to try something new:
Oven-baked "Fried" Chicken
Garlic Potato Wedges
Strawberry Yogurt Smoothie
The oven baked fried chicken is made here with a breading of corn meal, panko bread crumbs, flour, buttermilk and some salt and pepper. It is oven-baked and not fried - hence the quotation marks. (The new menus are a lot of work for the food services staff - thank you!)
The cucumber sticks don't require further description. There's not question that the number of ingredients is way down this year over least - a terrific improvement.
The potato wedges are government commodity potatoes (a cost savings - the staff has been trying to use our free commodity foods very carefully to avoid most processed products). They arrive frozen. They are completely plain potatoes that are only baked with our seasonings. I actually tried them last month and they were very good.
The smoothie (new! exciting!) will be made with either plain yogurt to which we add honey or vanilla yogurt (no honey) if we can't get plain plus 1% milk and frozen strawberries. Who doesn't like smoothies?
