Friday Lunch

Friday we had to go downtown to get passport pictures for Alma.  We had learned from the 5 attempts, 49 hours and 16 stores that we tried for her citizenship card that it was not as straight forward as one would assume – but we now knew the one store downtown that could do infant photos, with strange dimensions for the Canadian requirements. Of course we got down town only to find major renovations going on, and the store has permanently closed. Hmm. But after some more walking, and asking at other places we did find a photo place to take the pictures.  We were done in time to stop and pick up pizza on our way home for lunch and to put Alma down for her nap.
We had our favorite pizza -Raviol. Cream sauce with small cheese-filled raviolis with cheese, garlic and herbs on top.  De-lish.
Well – if I did feel bad for the kids for having to eat at school – knowing what they were having made that go away pretty quickly.
That would be:
 for entree: Green bean salad with a raspberry vinaigrette dressing
for main course:  roasted chicken breast in herbs
and  Gratin of potatoes and zucchini
followed by: plain yogurt (not sour – they put sugar on top of it)
and for dessert: fruit
(and of course there is bread with the meal…I mean come on…they’re children, not savages)
So I guess the difference between our lunch and theirs is that we had better wine. The difference between theirs and a lunch bag with a sandwich and juice box – is not even really explainable.
