What's for Lunch? (Linky Party)


 Check out 4th Grade Frolics and link up your lunch!

Lunch at school is not very exciting for me. Although after reading some other comments about lunches I find myself very lucky! I have a 45-minute lunch from 12:15-1:00. I usually spend the whole time in the lunch room chatting with colleagues and maybe grading some papers. I don't typically multi-task because I need the break. We do discuss students and strategies during that time so it kind of functions as an extended PLC.

I used to use a so-cute 31 bag for my lunch but I have found it to be too small for my Smart Ones and Lean Cuisines. (I definitely need to get a new one...yay!) For now I am using a bag I got for free for some reason or another. I do love that it has a shoulder much easier to deal with when my hands are full!

I always have a Diet Coke or Diet Dr. Pepper on hand. I round it out with some kind of fruit and every once in a while some cookies or brownies, depending on what I felt like baking that week.

On a side note: I love, love, love to bake! I will share some of my go-to recipes to please your friends and colleagues soon! I find there is no greater way to a staff members heart then bringing in goodies. It helps on those days that I have to play the role of principal or when I'm conducting a training. I am not opposed to bribery especially when it means I get to try new recipes on willing participants!

(I also eat breakfast at work most of the time. Due to health issues I can't eat any earlier than 7:00am or I am not a happy camper.)

So there's my lunch and breakfast! Don't forget to check out what else goes on a lunch time around the country at 4th Grade Frolics!
