Last time this week. I had fun learning about food and will miss
sending reports. But I will ask more questions about my food from now
on. Knowing what is in the different foods is interesting. When I
started I thought it would be boring.
Yesterday I told uncle there would be a taco special today in the
school cafeteria and I would like to try them. He said I had been very
helpful all week for Veg's food blog and helping to raise money for
Mary's Meals so I deserved a treat. I am glad there are hungry kids
who will now get to eat because of Veg, her dad and all the people who
sent money to Mary's Meals. Please keep sending money when you can and
to those who haven't sent money yet please do it soon.
The tacos were good. There were a lot of veggies in it, some grated
cheddar cheese, chicken and a small amount of sauce. Everything was
just perfect to me. Uncle was surprised at how good it looked. I think
he thought it would be more like a fast food taco. He was glad I made
the picture look good so people could see the food better. We had
talked about that and how food can be better if it looks good as well
as tastes good. I tucked the soft taco cover under so you could see
the taco stuffing and took the fruit off its bowl to put on the plate
with the taco. I also remembered the comment from 'lotsasmiles' about
water but I really like milk. So I had the milk. I got busy arranging
the food so I forgot to put the milk in the picture. Sorry.
Here is my rating.
Food-o-meter - 10/10 I liked everything.
Health rating - 9/10 To me it was all good but I took one off because
I had lots of fruit.
Bites - 54.
Courses - Main and dessert.
Price - Taco special - $3.00. Regular price would be $5.00, fruit
snack $1.60 (I had two portions), and milk $0.75. Total - $5.35
Pieces of hair - 0. No hair all week.
I hope everyone continues to support Veg and Mary's Meals and that we
all learn more about our food all around the world. This is a fun way
Wela'lin (thank you) to everyone.
Jagej's uncle here.
It has been a very interesting week for us and it was exciting to see
Jagej engage with Elders about Mi'kmaq culture and food. We both
learned a great deal and think we both know we have a lot more to
learn. It has become more interesting to look back at previous posts
from other cultures and both of us will follow future ones avidly. As
our 10-year-old guide has said - wela'lin.
