Three lunches and a meme


WELCOME TO SCHOOL LUNCH REVIEWS! MY NAME IS ANNA STUDER, AND I AM A FOOD CRITIC. I HAVE BEEN TAKING PHOTOS OF MY LUNCH SINCE THE THIRD MONDAY OF SCHOOL. I don’t want to make the lunch ladies look bad, because they have to make lunch for 600 students a day, and the government won't let them make things that they could last year, so imagine how difficult it must be. THEY WORK SO HARD, AND I JUST WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT. I HOPE YOU ENJOY!

Meme of the week: A fancified sammich When your mom asks you what you made yourself for dinner while she was asleep and dad’s at work.

I hope you thought my reviews were somewhat accurate! Thanks for checking out the lunch ratings by me, Anna Studer, Food Reviewer. See you next week!
