What`s wrong with you two? My family just had artichokes for dinner. It`s delicious, extremely healthy, and very easy to eat. The best part is the heart of the artichoke! Yum.
In my school its chips, everywhere...chips...also chicken curry with rice.But the panninis are delish, lots of stuffsThats Northern Ireland to be precise...
HAHA, same crap from Sodexho is Sweden too? My college had them and the food was perhaps a small step above prison food. Disgusting.
My state tax dollars, for example, are going to build state of the art schools/palaces in gang-infested urban areas where about 30% of kids graduate high school...not because they don`t have the educational resources (they have more taxpayer money than God), but because the kids just don`t care, and their parents don`t either because they didn`t graduate themselves and had kids at 18. Screwed up priorities are the problem.
And the only reason that American Universities are some of the best in the world (in contrast to US public schools), is because they are mostly privately funded. And the private schools tend to have better food too.
for real haha. If someone gave me an artichoke for lunch I`d toss it at them.
Greasy pizza/hamburger, milk, bag of chips, and a random fruit.
All for the delightful price of $2.25
Thank the lord that my mother still makes lunch for me.
I love seafood, rice and noodles, damn it! Now I reaaallllyyy want something oriental...Someone please tell me there is somewhere in Michigan to get something legitimatly Japanese.
Unbelievable... all these "EWWW A WHOLE FISH EWW IT`S SO GROSS" people should really get over it. Fish is good for you *plus* delicious.
Oh and I hope you`re in *france*, cause you wrote in *french* and all sorts of weird imagery come into mind.
HAH. the attitude in korea is"don`t go to the doctor until something is broken/breathing has stopped"
Mate, you`re doing it wrong. The Japanese eat that sh*t every day and the average life expectancy over there is 237.
but I am currently devouring a package of Oreo cookies, so I`ll just keep my mouth shut for now.
But then, when your school is catered by Sodexho, what can you expect?
yeah seriously, a whole barely dead fish and some rice.... f**k that
If you don`t calm down, you`ll start to be like this:
OMFG BANANA! I HATE YOU! BARFAGAHALABALBLA!
I never bought lunch there (except maybe pizza in ninth grade), but man...I think Michigan must have some of the best (worst) cafeterias. I`ve seen everything from slurpee machines to make-your-own sundaes...
All that aside, the Korean dishes look delicious. :3
That and their healthcare beats the crap out of American privatized healthcare
Indeed, I think they originated in Belgium.
It`s just a link with different lunches ffs
Japan`s was the awesomest though - there`s a Japanese kid who goes to my daughter`s playschool and her mum makes her a full-on goddam Bento Box every day. It looks delicious - I pay 20 Euros for that sh*t when I go to a Japanese restaurant!
Am I going to hell if I steal a 3-year old Japanese kid`s lunch some day soon?
p.s. I`ll look for it Crakr, but no promises - the upcoming feed is pretty well full up until 6PM PST earliest...
Done, We`ll see if it`s chosen.
Luckily for us, nobody saw Pearl Harbor, leaving Bay`s plans unfinished...
2012: The War for Souls APPROACHES!
That Chinese school lunch is actually supposed to feed an entire classroom, btw.
I think what most of the Europeans were saying is the fact of the difference in the foods and how American`s eat vs. other nations. It was an eye opener when I first moved over here is how they eat. For Bfast, you are not eating eggs, sausage, waffles and all that kind of poo but you normally have bread and some lunch meat and maybe a piece of cheese. Lunch is the biggest meal and is usually shared with the family. Kids come home for lunch. That is a way to save money and use that money for a better quality education. And then you have a lighter dinner. I really don`t understand how this post turned into an argument. We are all different and that`s okay!
But I am much healthier since living in Korea and Europe...more so than when I was younger...but hey...let`s take a breather and move on! :-)
That`s actually pretty wrong.
And definitely Maddog, it was one of the few times that an allied partnership in war worked out well. It is unfortunate that some people fail to see how important the partnership was.
Off topic again, whats so pathetic about discussing WWII pirate? Sure it diverged from school lunches, but there is nothing to classify a short discussion on the implications of WWII involvement as pathetic. I would hope that the internet could be used for similar discussion, despite whether it is on topic or not.
If teh internets is supposed to be serious business, I`ll try my damndest to be as serious as possible, no matter what the scenario.
anyways back to foodstuffs..
Anyway..enough off topic conversation! Back to the food..and I`m hungry!
I think some Americans believe wrongly that Britain was waiting to be saved. Which is not entirely true, they were fighting well on their own. However, with Lend-Lease and America`s eventual involvement, I`m confident that the war ended quite earlier and with fewer Allied casualties then if America remained completely isolated.
FDR knew America would have to be involved in the war at some point. He frequently met with Churchill on this matter an in the summer of 1941 they drafted the Atlantic Charter. I won`t post the details of it. Plus America became the "Warehouse of the Allies" with its Lend-Lease policy, which one British politician claimed was America`s most selfless act. Those supplies alone saved countless British, European, and Russian lives.
Finally, when America finally did enter the war, Hitler`s two fronts became much harder to manage. He had to turn his attention away from the Eastern front to stem the steady stream of Americans. This undoubtedly helped towards the German debacle at Stalingrad.
Oh I just love the ignorance you ooze oceanbeast.
America didnt save Europe from the Germans. You didnt jump in to save the day. America was dragged into WWII kicking and screaming after Japan bombed Pearl Harbour. Prior to that, America didnt want to get involved. You didnt save Europe, you joined us!Which is something I`ll be forever gratefull for but if you gonna try to be clever at least be factual instead of dishonering all the Europeans who stood up to fight the nazi`s before America did!
Problem was that the students weren`t all that keen on it.
And mussels and fries are indeed a typically Belgian dish, we eat the most mussels in the entire world. As long as there`s mayonaise for the (Belgian) french fries.
Not too long ago, kids meals would have been exactly the same. Hell, until the early 1900s a common breakfast, lunch and dinner would have a massive hunk of meat, gravy, and a mound starch. Kids weren`t obese back then. Do you think 1990 rolled around and every school said, hey lets start frying the food and slathering everything in butter. Its always been that way.
Think for a moment and a more appropriate culprit for childhood obesity is a sedentary lifestyle. Blame the schools for not doing enough to get gets active. Blame the parents for the same. Demand that kids must play dodgeball in elementary school and have them scurry up the vertical ropes.
Its easy to blame the food. Its a lot harder to blame the lifestyle. Why? Because buying a low fat meal is easy, moving your ass is a bit harder.
You know, I never thought school lunches were too bad. Now I could probably eat a few, the others would take effort.
Its my dream to send my kids to a school where they can order medium rare steaks and legs of lamb.
Everyone, stop bashing America. Learn your history prior to doing so. Also, personally - I eat very healthy for an American. I am a quasi-veg (only chicken), I only have wheat products, no fried foods and such. A lot of americans are like that. Stop assuming things because it makes you sound ignorant. Also, the US is number NINE in obesity. Please, educate yourselves.
Think about that next time you need a scapegoat.
TATER TOTS AND CHICKEN FTW!
and i have 2 college degrees continuing school own my own buisness and happily married, so i really don`t think the "crappy" lunch affected me, in fact im drating very grateful that i had a meal for lunch daily cuz if you didn`t know that`s all some kids eat all day. and there is a giant movement to improve school lunches but i think the school systems do a pretty good job with the lousy amounts of money that finally make it down to the actual schools
I allways make my own lunch packets; 4 slices of nice and healthy bread, green apples and a banana.thats the norwegian way;)
beats deepfried mammoth covered in cheese and sauce with fries on the side.
mandoo are just dumplings...actually, the korean dishes looked like pretty authentic korean dishes to me. cept they looked sorta nasty, but what would you expect out of a school lunch
And the korean green stuff was spinach, and the milk was actually yogurot, dairy based but mostly just a sugary drink.
Dude deriously, we dont get enough food EVER. Tey give us two cheesesticks and think we should make light of that...here is a thin slice of turkey, enjoy it with your little scoop of mash potatoes.
The only good thing for the US was the organic plate; but that chicken looked gross.
Thanks IAB...just lost my appetite.
Oddly enough. . . I am now hungry. . . .
SCHOOL LUNCH - AISLE 3 TO USFEMOGIRL!
