Mom, I’m Making A Real Lunch

At 14 years of age you should be able to make your own lunch. At least that’s the philosophy in our house. The other night James compiled this as his lunch.

At one point he and Coral got in a heated discussion about his lunch making skills which led him to say something along the lines of, “At least I know how to make a REAL lunch, mom!”

I am not sure what to make of the sandwich made with three half pieces of bread, but maybe it’s all the rage in junior high. Also, do four snacks and a drink qualify as a “real” lunch? Definitely! Five food groups, what? Whoever said a fruit and a veggie is needed for a nutritional meal? That’s crazy talk.

Of course, this is all coming from a guy that eats Cinnamon Toast Crunch for breakfast and DiGiorno Supreme Rising Crust pizza for lunch. In my defense, I would never claim my meals to be “real”. Seriously, they’re awful. Lucky for me, Coral makes super tasty and healthy dinners, so I think it all balances out in the end.

Here’s to eating what you love!
Even if it doesn’t make any sense.
