If we can blabber on about overpriced DC restaurants, we can blabber on about school cafeterias, can't we?



you're one to talk.. on the beer thread you don't want me talking about beer that doesn't meet your standards but on the "gastronomical" thread you want to talk about cafeteria food? please get yourself out of this one houdini

My wife went to my kid's school today to have lunch with my daughter. (Parents are encouraged to come have lunch with their kids.) She brought vegetarian pad thai in a plain white styrofoam container purchased at our local Thai restaurant.

She was reprimanded by the school lunch lady for "bringing in outside food. This place is like a restaurant, you wouldn't bring McDonalds into Mike's" (Well actually I wouldn't be caught eating at either of them). So apparently you can bring your own homemade or store purchased pre-packaged corporate food into their "restaurant", but not food prepared by a third party. (?)

She also said that they have the kids washing the tables (isn't that the job of the custodian/lunch lady?), so when my wife took my daughter to stand away from the table while that was being done, she was further reprimanded by the lunch lady , "You're supposed to remain seated at the table at all times."

No wonder why my wife wants to home school our kid.

i got a good laugh finding this in gastronomical banter.

you brought up homeschooling, you should've kept it to the veggie tofu pad thai your wife brought into the café.

I guess I should have realized it's not cool to bring up gastronomical banter  pertaining to children in an audience of hipster doofuses.

I guess you should have realized it's not cool to bring up crappy schools in a thread re: food.

Cafeteria food belongs on the "gastronomical" thread?

Per Wikipedia:

Gastronomy is the study of food and culture, with a particular focus on gourmet cuisine.

That must be one bomb-ass cafeteria to make the cut. Sloppy foie gras? Beluga loaf? Salisbury bottarga?

Pizza. My daughter refuses to eat it because "it has too much cheese on it." Figures, the girl has been going to Pizza Paradiso happy hours since she was a baby.  ;D

Top Chef New Orleans is killing me.  Can't wait to get back there and have dinner!  Going for one night to New Orleans sucks, but it's better than nothing!

you know who serves a mean elementary-school style pizza?  that late night place, marios, in arlington.

also, i haven't had one good slice of pizza since i've moved to seattle and it's depressing. although i'm happy that pizza in the slice exists here (hi walkie).
