    A better school lunch?

    I had the fantastic pleasure today of cooking with the nutrition staff at Waconia Public Schools. We served up a delicious, nutritious school lunch that we all enjoyed! While it’s not realistic to think this entire meal will be on the menu when school starts next week, Waconia and other districts we’re working with will be slowly introducing new entrees and side dishes in keeping with the new USDA regulations for school lunch programs.

    Here’s the entire menu, with recipes, so you can try them at home. Enjoy!
