Monday 5/3: Philly Cheese Steak

The menu reads as follows: Philly Cheese Steak on a Hoagie Roll, Crispy Potato Wedge, Fresh Orange

What they got: Philly Cheese ____ on a wheat hoagie roll, potato wedges and a fresh orange.

This has to be one of my least favorite meals only because the 'mystery' meat really puts me off.

That's probably one of the most unappetizing pieces of food I've seen.  At least it's not served with fries but with potato wedges that actually are and look like a piece of potato. I do feel like the hoagie is huge for a 3/4/5 year old. Even Ms. M (our 87 year old lunch lady- who I love), said that its too much food them and wanted to give them half a roll but was told she could not because of federal regulation.

On the upside, have you seen the menu for this month??  Oh my goodness, it seems like someone is finally paying attention! There are on average 9 items of fresh fruit and veg served over the course of a week- that's about 4 extra items that are now fresh as opposed to canned. I am counting frozen peas and corn as fresh veg and counting lettuce&tomato as one item since im not quite sure that Iceberg lettuce really counts as a vegetable.

Either way this is a small victory and I am super-pleased that Chartwells is being responsive. The district on the other hand is lagging a bit but I have to keep reminding myself to be patient yet to keep pushing gently. A delicate balance.
