Lunch lady slammed for food that is 'too good'
TheLocal ^ | 6 Oct 12 | unknown

Posted on 10/07/2012 10:56:42 AM PDT by Daffynition

Annika Eriksson, a lunch lady at school in Falun, was told that her cooking is just too good.

Pupils at the school have become accustomed to feasting on newly baked bread and an assortment of 15 vegetables at lunchtime, but now the good times are over.

The municipality has ordered Eriksson to bring it down a notch since other schools do not receive the same calibre of food - and that is "unfair".

Moreover, the food on offer at the school doesn't comply with the directives of a local healthy diet scheme which was initiated in 2011, according to the municipality.

"A menu has been developed... It is about making a collective effort on quality, to improve school meals overall and to try and ensure everyone does the same," Katarina Lindberg, head of the unit responsible for the school diet scheme, told the local Falukuriren newspaper.

**From now on, the school's vegetable buffet will be halved in size and Eriksson's handmade loafs will be replaced with store-bought bread.**

Geesh!

Everyone and everything has to be equal.... equally miserable. That’s the only thing that’s fair in the tiny minds of liberals.

Maybe a restaurant or diner should offer her a job as a chef. Then get the kids against the school because she’s gone.

So, exactly what happens if schools decide to ignore these petty rules?

Will they be shut down? Or will the feds send in a swat team and gas the joint?

When will people stand up th these thugs and tell them enough is enough? WHAT DOES IT TAKE BEFORE THE FROGS BOIL?

Hell, I don’t even have kids and I am pissed off more than most parents.

Not yet.

As long as the food in any school is better than the food in the worst school cafeteria, it's unfair!

The only thing Mooooooseschelle can add it to descend to the level of the worst cafeteria in Sweden.

Now imagine that same Government appointed panel . . . the one that came up with the line . . .

" It is about making a collective effort on quality, to improve school meals overall and to try and ensure everyone does the same," Katarina Lindberg, head of the unit responsible for the school diet scheme, told the local Falukuriren newspaper."

Imagine that same panel discussing the quality of your health care!

Won't work.
Special Management Meal
Yield - Three Loaves

• 6 slices whole wheat bread, finely chopped
• 4 ounces imitation cheddar cheese, finely grated
• 4 ounces raw carrots, finely grated
• 12 ounces spinach, canned, drained
• 2 cups dried Great Northern Beans, soaked, cooked and drained
• 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
• 6 ounces potato flakes, dehydrated
• 6 ounces tomato paste
• 8 ounces powdered skim milk
• 4 ounces raisins
Mix all ingredients in a 12-quart mixing bowl. Make sure all wet items are drained. Mix until stiff, just moist enough to spread. Form three loaves in glazed bread pans. Place loaf pans in the oven on a sheet pan filled with water, to keep the bottom of the loaves from burning. Bake at 325 degrees in a convection oven for approximately 45 minutes. The loaf will start to pull away from the sides of the bread pan when done.
The evil Annika Eriksson would doubtless sneak in home made whole wheat bread for the first ingredient...

Excellent, comrade nutritional officer! The cadre chief of the collective's school diet wellness plan has reinstated equality and fairness by driving out the decadent bourgeois counter-revolutionary!

It’s been decades, but our school had the best school cooks. They were local ladies from the community....grandmas, aunts and mostly 1st generation immigrants....and man! Could they cook up a storm!

I recall that every few weeks, they’d make fried chicken...it was to die for. The line would go out the door. Even passer-by delivery guys would stop! It was the biggest compliment that the school could get.

Eventually, their famous eats died out. Not quite sure why. Maybe because they became unionized and more government mandates forced them to conform to new standards.

The principal used to brag that his cafeteria was the only one in the district that actually *made* money.

LOL. Looks and sounds like what we had back in ‘63 for high school cafeteria lunch bill-o-fare, on Wednesdays. Brrrrr. Scalding hot tuna casserole on Fridays, was inedible torture. Annika Eriksson’s cuisine would have been hailed as a godsend!

Yet another glaring example of the inefficiencies of the public sector. If the schools were privately run the cook would be promoted to teach her techniques to all the school cafeterias.

My cohorts thought I was Catholic because I always had the fried fish on Friday. It was the one thing in the cafeteria at Jefferson Davis Jr. High that was consistently excellent.

This was in Sweden, but who knows how long Michelle's reach is? I've seen those arms....

Anyway, since the "collective" is looking for egalitarianism for all the schools - why in the name of Sven aren't they encouraging the lesser cooks to step up to Ericsson's level instead of dragging the best down? This is the problem - the least competent are ruling, and it seems to be catching on worldwide.

Government mandated collective uniformity. Individuality is banned, everyone is part of the same, except of course our over Lords who are in charge of making sure we don’t step out of sync.

“Imagine that same panel discussing the quality of your health care!”

We are fast approaching the novel/movie, 1984, by Orwell. Everyone ate only approved food, and no one better have anything else. You were always on a live monitor for the government to watch what you were doing, at work and at home. If you read a book, they would know it and come get you as no one could read anything except what they said to read.

that’s what my shopping basket has become - i used to buy a weeks worth of groceries for about $150 - now I spend easily $200 to $230 when I shop and I have to stretch that over 2 weeks so I buy crappier food. Why? Because my cost in gas and utilities have gone up. Someone recently told me that they truly thought we were better off than we were four years... BS.

Just a preview of things to come to the US.

You get punished, if you excel.

Instead of setting her as an example for other school district lunch planning, they are bringing school lunches to the lowest common denominator, by order of the government!!! - Michelle Obama would be proud.

“Eriksson added that she sees it as her job to ensure that the pupils are offered several alternatives at meal times.

The food on offer does not always suit all pupils, she explained, and therefore she makes sure there are plenty of vegetables to choose from as well as proteins in the form of chicken, shrimp, or beef patties.

From now on, the school’s vegetable buffet will be halved in size and Eriksson’s handmade loafs will be replaced with store-bought bread.”

Years ago this exact thing happened to my girlfriend’s mother.

Her cooking put the other schools to shame and the admins requested she tone it down.

She chose to retire instead.

Why doesn't the other schools hire people to create food like that for their students?? I know, it is too simple for LIBERALS!!

Well - this is the same person who told me that food was an entitlement (the underlying accusation was that conservatives typically would let people starve). She’s not on any kind of government subsidy - she lives in a very nice house and her husband is a medical professional. It was a really disappointing conversation.

I went to public hs in Chicago nw suburbs, from ‘63-’67, but we always had fish on Fridays. I opted for the fish sticks & tartar sauce, over the tuna casserole.

Don’t know if they’re available in your area, but you might want to try Aldi’s.

They’re a no-frills chain, and I probably save a solid 40% shopping there. All items are “house brand,” but most are quite good.

One example: 13 oz. tortilla chips, very high quality, $1.29. Doritos are usually $3.75 or higher.

I lived in Sweden in 1972-73. There was a municipal cafeteria where the schoolchildren and adults - not sure if they were city workers or the general public too - had lunch.

That food was so good. I even learned to like blood pudding, and hold my fork in my left hand, but not to hold it upside down and loaded all the way to the handle.

My aunt was a school cook - small village; little school.

She did not think the menu she was supposed to produce was nutritious enough for the kids so she would cook stuff at home and add it to their meals.

She did that for years. Nobody complained.

These are the *type* of people I remember in the cafeteria kitchen...

Now, I see angry, union lakeys who just push out crap food that comes on a truck in *warmers*, that is shoveled at the kids .....who by-and-large promptly throw most of it in the garbage can.

Sadly, the sense of community is a thing of the past.
