Home Lunches in Chicago

Just recently a school in Chicago banned lunches from home because they weren't "nutritious like our lunches."

That is a big lie. Since I am in school I know how bad the lunches are. They are disgusting. The vegetables are pale, the rice too thick and mushy, most of the food is burned, and some of the fruit is bruised and rotten. Call that nutritious? The colors of the vegetables and fruit just aren't natural! How hard is it to keep from burning when all they do is reheat the food? Most of the food has grease on it. YUCK!

A girl in my class uses a napkin to blot up the grease. It is soaked through.

All of us kids are forced to eat this crap.

There is one girl at my school, she shall remain nameless, always brings lunch from home. She has never bought a school lunch this year. If the Montgomery School Board were to ban lunches from home I don't know what she would do. What would happen to kids who just got braces? They can't chew. It hurts too much (not that I have had braces, but a girl in my class got them.) What if there is something they can't eat? What would they eat?

People should he able to bring lunches from home. It's not like we're bringing in Burger King, though it might not be worse than what we're forced to eat!

I pack my own lunches. I make a sandwich, fruit, vegetables and maybe a dessert like cookies. I do it because I know what's good for me. The overcooked and greasy school food is definitely not very healthy!

That is just my opinion. You can put your opinion in the comments.

Brown Sugar Pound Cake

About last week I made some more cupcakes. I made Brown Sugar Pound Cakes. Yummy!!! They were very sticky the day after I made them. = ) They were VERY delicious without the icing. You can make the icing if you want. It was a very easy recipe to make. If you wanted to you could make an actual cake. I made cupcakes. They are a very tasty snack. I hope you enjoy them.

More Cupcakes!!!!

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I haven't had the time to make anything with state testing last month.
I made Martha Stewart's Allergen-Free Chocolate Cupcakes or Divvies Cupcakes as they are called on the link. I made them for my youngest, little sister's birthday. They were delicious! They didn't have any eggs or milk! Instead they had vegi oil and distiled white vinegar. When I was in 4th grade I made these cupcakes for my science fair project (actually my mom made the I just put them in the oven).
I didn't win anything, but I had fun!
Sorry there are no pictures. They got devoured before I could get a picture. =P
