If you have a school-aged child I am sure you are familiar with the hot lunch phenom known as “brunch for lunch.” Brunch for lunch is…well, eating brunch during lunch. The hot lunch ladies serve up scrambled eggs, pancakes with syrup, turkey sausage, and french toast sticks. Kids can’t seem to get enough of it! In our household brunch for lunch is every other Tuesday, and you better believe, those off Tuesdays are a real downer.
On brunch for lunch days I have witnessed students running into the building chanting, “Brunch for lunch, brunch for lunch!” I have seen students smiling ear-to-ear, grasping their hot lunch money tightly in their little, sweaty, fingers. On one special Tuesday I saw the hot lunch lady herself, usually curmudgeonly in nature, pushing the food cart down the hallway smiling and whistling a tune.
