What's for Lunch - Wed., 11/7

No Salad Bar Lunch this Week!

Seasoned, Southwest-Style Boneless Chicken over Brown Rice & Black Beans
Toppings: Romaine Lettuce, Cheese & Salsa Tossed Green Salad
Fresh Grapes & Apples

The chicken is from Tyson and is dark meat that has been poached and frozen - thus relatively unprocessed.

The rice is whole grain but a source of arsenic according to Consumer Reports. Rice should now be cooked like pasta in excess water and rinsed repeatedly before cooking to eliminate as much arsenic as possible - but these extra steps are not ones that can be accomplished in our cafeteria.

Beans are canned. Salsa is actually organic - although the fruit and vegetables are not.

Again, many thanks to everyone in our cafeteria and the food service dept for producing a hot lunch for all our kids. Many of these people are still recovering from the storm personally -- and of course, there is a huge amount of work in getting our cafeteria ready after losing power for a week and thus all our refrigerated and frozen foods.
