So, for 1 week only, Dj requested to have school dinners. He was mainly tempted by the change from the ‘normal’ menu to ‘International Food Week’.
We asked him if he’d like to write a blog on his experience & he jumped at the chance.
Everything that follows (apart from the actual Menu bit) is word for word that Dj wrote….we just corrected the spellings & some punctuation to make it easier on the brain for you good people.
Croque Monster, avec Pomme Frites et Harico
Tart Tatin with Ice Cream
I liked the cheese & ham baguette but the bread wasn’t as good as Daddys’.
I didn’t like the chips or the beans because the chips were soggy & the beans are out of a tin, unlike daddys, he makes his own.
The pudding was nice & my friend went mental on it.
Sticky Ginger Bread
I liked the sticky bread but if my Daddy made it, it would be better, & I didn’t like the chicken stew & rice & peas because the peas weren’t in the rice & the chicken was soggy.
The pudding which was sticky bread was nice.
I don’t thinks that’s a Caribbean.
Portuguese Cheese Flan with Half Jacket, Coleslaw & Sweetcorn
Vanilla Biscoitos with Ice Cream
I liked none of it because the cheese was cold & yucky!
The jacket potato was yummy but it didn’t have any butter on. The sweetcorn was nice like any other persons.
The pudding was fab & my friend liked it & I loved it too!
& there wasn’t any coleslaw.
Chicken Curry with Boiled Rice
Ice Cream with Chocolate Sauce
Today I had curry & I liked the curry & I don’t mean the rice & today the chicken was better than Tuesdays because the chicken that was in the stew was soggy but todays one was better.
The pudding was really nice & it was ice cream with chocolate sauce.
Iced Lemon Sponge
Today I had margarita pizza with soggy chips.
I liked the margarita pizza but Daddy’s ‘Ome Made pizza is 10 billion, trillion times better.
Todays pudding was sponge with grated lemon in & I liked it but Daddy’s ‘Ome Made lemon drizzle cake is better
That’s the end of my Blog.
Thank you for reading it.
Love Dj XXXXXX
After reading Dj’s blog we know that some of you lovely people will be thinking ‘Yeah, well your Kids are lucky (& probably spoilt) to get nice food at home all the time’, & yes, you’re right!
We do tell our Kids that they are VERY lucky to have a Daddy who can cook them fabulous dishes at home (sometimes Mummy does too!).
We also make our Kids realise that for other children this maybe the ONLY good plate of food that they get in a day. For some busy/working full time parents it’s easier & they know their child is getting a meal at school. For some parents it’s the affordable option & a lifeline for their children.
Could it be better though?
This is just Dj’s 7yr old view of what he thought was going to be a fabulous week of school lunches. He did a fab job of sitting down everyday after school & writing (most) of his thoughts on paper.
We can’t help feeling he was a tad disappointed with the meals….apart from the puddings!!!
Great work Dj!!! XXXXX
