Wednesday last week was a
The menu was decided!
The RSVP's rolled in......116! Yikes!
So the prep began!
It began like this...plus 2 other trolleys!
The many hours we spent shopping then had to be translated into the hours we needed to spend CHOPPING!. I didnt get a photo of all the prep, but the teachers of my school (for the most part) were so supportive and fantastic! The last chopper left school at 9.30pm the night before the lunch.
Ill let the pics take up the story now!
Very hygenic! I did have to give lots of gloves to one boy in particular. He would take his turn at 'making' and then exclaim "This looks yum!" Then his hand would go straight in his mouth. I was killing myself laughing!
We divided into 4 groups and each group prepared 3 dishes. My group made Garden Salad, Crunchy Noodle Salad and Wraps
How cool is the watermelon shark? You have probably seen it on Pinterest? Well someone was showing this pic around when we were chopping and my awesome boss says....I can do that! So watermelon shark was born! I think kids who didnt even like watermelon had a try of some out of his mouth.
Our hall was so full of happy families and kids who were so proud of themselves.
It was a lot of effort and come Thursday morning there were some VERY tired teachers but it was so totally worth it.
