I do this. From time to time I just NEED to take a picture of our meals. Don’t ask me why. My kids and husband ask enough for all of you, believe me. I like to see what people are eating. I know I’m not the only one. How do I know? Every now and then, when I have time to really look through my blog stats, I come across searches for “homeschool lunch”. You can laugh, but I know there are other moms out there who are looking for lunch ideas.
Not that my lunch ideas would be something you would want to try. I mean, especially THIS particular lunch. Popcorn shrimp, frozen baby sweet peas (heated, of course), Chicken-flavored Rice-a-Roni, and Simply Apple juice. Not your organic health-nut approved menu combo, to be sure. But at least it wasn’t “chicken rings” and those gross Veggie-all canned mixed mushy things that they served my kids in private school… when my son wasn’t raising his hand to opt out of the hot lunch for a white-bread peanut-butter and jelly sandwich, a Cisco chocolate chip cookie, and greasy Lays chips. Ick. I’d take the popcorn shrimp over that any day. I can admit that I sometimes eat out of cans and boxes.
So this is what a FAST food lunch looks like at home – when mom doesn’t have time to cook in between Math and Typing. Not so shabby. Definitely edible. And if you eat all your peas, there’s organic Sorbet, cut strawberries, or whole wheat fig newtons for dessert.
What’s on your homeschool lunch table? Wanna share? I’m finally going to get a linky for this ancient meme of mine. I hope you’ll join in and give me some new foodie ideas.
