What's for Lunch - Wed., 3/23

Homemade Challah French Toast
w/Orange Rounds
Applegate Farms® Turkey Bacon
Apple Crisp

Join me in saying "No" to meal declared to be "cake" for lunch by our committee's nutritionist.  Plus, the liberal allocation of syrup is basically HFCS.  Look  back to the posts on the fruit salad alternate. Good day to try it.

Nonetheless, here are the details: You do get fresh orange slices. We make the apple crisp - it is a treat - and there are too many treats in this meal.

The turkey bacon is by Applegate. It is nitrate-free. Here are the ingredients: Turkey (Turkey Used Never Administered Antibiotics, Growth Promotants or Animal By-products), Water, Sea Salt, Maple Sugar, Celery Juice, Onion Powder, Spices, Lactic Acid Starter Culture (not From Milk.)

This is a popular meal and we serve it because people buy it and it supports the lunch program.  I don't believe it is a meal worth supporting.

Today, please try an alternate entree - we have some really terrific choices:

Soup is available every day - on Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays,  it is homemade Chicken Noodle with Vegetables.  As an alternate entree, you can get a 1/2 wrap and the soup.  Wraps have romaine lettuce and a white flour tortilla.  On Mondays and Wednesdays, the wrap is Boarshead Turkey.

The special entree for March is Abraham Lincoln's Fruit Plate -- carried over from February by popular demand. It includes:  APPLES, ORANGES, GRAPES & FRESH STRAWBERRIES
served with 100% Whole Wheat Carr’s Crackers & Mozzarella Strips plus your choice of sides.
