Each week, The Sentinel publishes stories we receive to prompts in Kids World and on www.cumberlink.com. This week’s Kids Speak Out prompt was “One day I was in charge of school lunch and decided to serve ...”

“One day I was in charge of school lunch and decided to serve and decided to serve hot dogs because my brother hates them and I like them. I like them because they are juicy and sweet. The only drink was milk. One hundred and seventy-seven people liked it. For snack there were sunflower seeds, pigs in a blanket and stuff like that. It was good after all.”

“One day I was in charge of school lunch and decided to serve tacos. First, it took a long (time) to make it. I cooked the meat until it was so juicy you would always want to eat it. Second, I chopped up tomatoes and lettuce and put meat on it. Last, I put it in the shell and then I put a scoop of ice cream on the side.”

“One day I was in charge of school lunch and decided to serve lobster tails, crabs, meatball sub, pizza, hamburgers, french fries, steak, ham fried rice, spinach, a big bag of candy canes, gummy bears, a pile of gummy worms, lima beans, a very big bag of apples, turkey, hot dogs, fish, and chocolate milk. Everybody liked it! I was the top chef. Everyone loved me so much. I gave the teachers homework. Twelve very hard pages, except for one, Mrs. Gruschow! She’s the best teacher I’ve ever known! She sings Baa Baa Black Sheep and has a great singing voice!”

“One day I was in charge of school lunch, and I decided to serve Thanksgiving dinner. I served turkey, mashed potatoes with and without gravy, stuffing, cranberry sauce and rolls. For dessert, I served cookies, cupcakes and cotton candy. For a drink, I served any kind of soda, juice and water. Oh yeah ... and every meal comes free. Everyone loved my choice of what to serve.”

“One day I was in charge of school lunch and decided to serve hamburgers and on the side it was pickles and for the drink it was milk. Everybody hated it. Even I hated it and that’s not normal because I normally love hamburgers, pickles and milk. But one kid liked it. He ate all of it. I was very surprised. He was the only one who ate all of the pickles and he drank all of the milk.”

“One day I was in charge of school lunch, and I decided to serve a build-your-own pizza. You could put anything on it—there was no limit. Next, you could get a bag of chips and any veggie or fruit. Finally, they would give you shaved ice and you could choose any flavor ... even sardines.”
