A Boycott and a New Tradition!

So each year the week before Thanksgiving rolls around and all the parents are invited to school to join their kids for a special Thanksgiving lunch--turkey, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, you know the drill. Normally my kids completely refuse to take hot lunches other than when pizza is on the menu [chalk it up to their good taste...ha!], but for whatever reason they always insist on trying the Thanksgiving lunch.

So year after year I choke up the $3.40 and join the kids in eating the chewy, flavorless memories of my own childhood lunches...leaving the school feeling unsatisfied, gypped, and still hungry.

This year I was feeling rebellious [and hungry], so I decided on a new family tradition...
a quick stop at Subway for a sweet-onion chicken teriyaki to share with the kids. A win-win-win for everyone [a win for each of the three meals I ate at the school that day].

Now that's a tradition I can stick with!

Did you get your hair done Lara? Very nice.

It sounds like a good tradition!

Nope. No new hair-dos. Just a lucky day with the brush.

I love eating lunch with my kids at school, and I prefer your new tradition over the schools!

Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki! Good choice...

Hope you bought three cookies and some chips as well.

Emma and Ellie look like they enjoy this tradition.
