Meat & 3 Veg Burger
May 24, 2013

meatand3vegMum: What did you have for lunch today?
Son: Burger. I stuffed all my chips and salad in the roll with the chicken burger and then ate it!
Mum: I used to make funny sandwiches like that! Was it yummy?
Son: Yes! The peas and sweetcorn kept falling out though – because they do that don’t they?

The wrong shape

wrongshapeMum: What did you have for lunch today?

Son: Pizza.

Mum: Did you eat it all?

Son: Except for the salad.

Mum: That again. You should try to eat some of it. What was for pudding?

Son: Fruit. Or crackers and butter. I had an apple. It didn’t taste like an apple though, so I didn’t eat it.

Mum: Why didn’t it taste like an apple?

Son: It was the wrong shape, y’know – not big enough? It was too small to be an apple really – it wasn’t ready.

A pea-sized portion

apeasizedD: Amy made a noise at lunch today and made my water go up and spill everywhere! And my food all went up in the air and then it came back down and all landed back on the plate in the same place – it just went up, and then back down.

Me: So Amy made you jump when you were holding your fish and chips at lunchtime?

D: Yes.

Me: I bet you haven’t had many portions of fruit and vegetables today – what did you have with your fish and chips?

D: Ketchup.

Me: Ah. Is that all?

D: And one pea.

School dinner and brain surgery

D: I LOVE that type of fish we had at school today!

Me: What sort of fish was it?

D: You know the fish that’s crusty?

Me: Was it battered?

D: No, you know the one that’s a flattened circle?

Me: I think the menu said it was fish in batter. Was the fish inside, with a crunchy coat on it?

D: Yes – it was orange outside. How do they make it? Do they kill the fish, then make it into the crunchy shapes, then chop the tail off?

Me: Something like that!

D: Do they suck the blood out first?

Me: Yes, there’s no blood in it when you eat it.

D: And they take the bones out, and the inside bits out… Do they take the brain out?

Me: Yes.

D: Yuck! I’d like to see that. I’d like to try taking a brain out, just to see. I’d have to wear gloves though, because it would be all yucky. Not the gloves I wear outside though – that would be silly – gloves like in my science kit.
