Wow, We Love the Heat! (Lunch Menu: Week of April 15, 2014)

Some of us in the kitchen got the sunburns this weekend!
Some of us had birthday parties. When you see Melissa, wish her a happy birthday.
Some of us harvested the seasons’ first RHUBARB!

Sorry about the lack of pictures…hard to remember the camera whilst running out the door behind the kids getting on the school bus.
