Fille is back at school and signed up again for lunches. The school posts the lunches in advance every week. Here are some of the lunches this week. I am so very envious! (The translations are the automatic translation from Google but you get the idea).
Every day and every week is different: There is a huge variety in what they are served.
Multiple courses: Just like any good french restaurant, there is an entree (appetizer), plat (main course) and dessert and cheese course.
Cheese course: In the country of over 400 cheeses, each day is different. Some examples this week are Saint-Paulin (creamy mild semi-soft cheese) or Cantal (a firm cheese whose flavor is stronger with age and tastes like a cross between a cheddar and swiss).
Price: We pay the highest tariff (7 euros per meal) but depending on your financial circumstances, the cost can be as low as 13 cents per meal!
Made from scratch: Need I say more?
Water: No sodas, juices or anything other than water to drink!
So, in addition to being envious, as a parent, I am thrilled to a) not have to make lunch and b) that she is getting a healthy, substantial meal every day.
Fille is happy as well. Here is her post from last year!
