New lunch favorite: chicken tacos w/ cheese and salsa
Hi All, Happy New Year! Sorry it's been such a long time since my last post. For the last three months, I've been quite busy: I got married, and I'm preparing to open my own food business this spring. However, I would like to continue blogging about school lunch.

Change is the current theme in my school kitchen, and my six-person staff is accustomed (and perhaps a bit wary) of this. As the new director of food services, I have implemented some drastic changes. I'm proud of how far the kitchen has come in five months, and I'd like to share the successes and failures.
Chicken and veggie stir-fry, a tough dish to make for 500So, here's a preview of some future blog entries that will be coming your way:

-making homemade mac and cheese
-working with a local burger company to bring well-raised and locally-source burgers to my school
-the search for quality processed products
-testing and standardizing recipes for 500
-and of course, lots of pictures and info about changes to my school lunch menu, including menu items pictured above
