Hot-dogs, Fries, and more...

Little Valley Academy gets an all beef hot-dog with fries and applesauce...because these are the "little guys" we cut the hot-dog in two length wise(less of a choking hazard).


Valley Fellowship Christian Academy gets an all beef hot-dog, fries (this is an older picture still showing chips, but its fries now), chili, and shredded cheese. So really you could have chili-cheese dog or chili-cheese fries, or even just at the chili separate. Yes, to many options maybe? Ha.

Grilled Chicken and Pasta Alfredo

This past Monday our lunch was grilled chicken, pasta Alfredo, vegetables, (because it can change I am not very specific) and a roll. 

Little Valley Academy (infant to K4) gets chicken tenders instead of grilled chicken. You might ask why? Because there is an increase of orders  from 25% to 35% MORE with tenders versus grilled chicken. Parents know what their children will eat. At least while their young. Most of the time. Hahahaha!

Valley Fellowship Christian Academy K5 - 12TH

We  make from scratch AND sometimes use a mix for the Alfredo sauce. Chicken is grilled outside and finished in the oven (to guarantee its cooked to the proper temperature with no doubt). Here we have a purchased roll like a Hawaiian bread roll, but we often make the bread/roll ourselves. And of course the green beans which I usually season to taste. Yes, those are Land-O-Lakes REAL BUTTER pats, I don't use margarine in my kitchen, only butter and olive oil. Occasionally I use canola/vegetable oil for certain things like baking.

Cheeseburgers, Fries, and Cookies!

Thursday: Cheeseburgers, Fries, and Cookies!
The first thing we do is roll out the grill! Who wants burger patties cooked in an oven? Unless of course it may be raining, in which case we would definitely season them up for a different cooking process!

Little Valley Academy (Infant - K4)


Valley Fellowship Christian Academy (K5-12TH)
Sure, we would all like to have "fried" fries but ours are cooked in the oven. They still come out hot and crispy! The burger is 100% ground beef. Grilled with just a pinch of salt on it. Nothing fancy, just a pure american classic!

Homemade Spaghetti & Bread Sticks!

Wednesday Lunch: Spaghetti & Meat Sauce, Green Beans, and Bread Stick(s)
Little Valley Academy
[update: I should point out that we use shells or shaped pasta for LVA because we feel the spaghetti noodle is a potential choking hazard for children this young]
Here we have Mr. John, the greatest "on time" delivery service to LVA!

Bread sticks are made right here, and so is the meat sauce!

Chicken and Mash

Chicken Tenders, mash potatoes and gravy, mix vegetables, and a biscuit! Not to bad for a Tuesday lunch.

Little Valley Academy Pictured here with the meals is Jim, but we call him Cookie Monster (for obvious reasons associated with his nickname) just as Sous Chef Roberto was a nickname for Robert who I mentioned in earlier posts when we first got started with this lunch program. 

Cookie Monster is checking quality control!





Valley Fellowship Christian Academy



And yes! I do use a large "ice cream" scoop for the mashed potatoes! LOL!
