Make Mine Haggis

2:15 PM -- Larry's favorite news site, Scotsman.com, shares "what the Scottish Executive believes parents should be putting in their children's lunchboxes before sending them off to school for the day":

    ONE wholemeal pitta bread filled with cucumber and canned salmon mashed with low-fat yoghurt.

    Egg and couscous salad with chopped cherry tomatoes, grated cucumber, raisins and a sprinkling of chives.

    A granary-bread sandwich filled with chopped chicken mixed with low-fat yoghurt and crunchy lettuce.
Scottish parents, needless to say, are not leaping to embrace the plan. But hey, it'll certainly toughen up little Angus as it enlivens his lunchroom experience. Can't think of anything that says "Please, beat me up!" quite like an "egg and couscous salad with chopped cherry tomatoes." Hold the yoghurt.

re: Make Mine Haggis What kid eats canned salmon? I'm sure that smells just lovely after sitting at room temp for a few hours.

re: Make Mine Haggis Having lived in Scotland for five years, I can only imagine that this is some kind of early April Fool's joke....

Cherry tomatoes and a sprinkling of chives? Do they want the kids with 'responsible parents' to get a wedgie every lunchtime?

re: Make Mine Haggis He'll have to do it elsewhere. Alas.

re: Make Mine Haggis CLG might beg to differ :)

Funny how local tastes can be seen in the lunchbox. In SF, sushi is on the menu of one of the school lunch providers and plenty of kindergarters are eating it. My daughter feels peer pressure because she doesn't like sushi.

What's that mean? Did something happen to CLG?

That code for you banning him, right?

Was it something serious?

Gosh,I hope not. He's just been retired from the boards. Wanted to spend more time with his family.

re: Make Mine Haggis I'm not one to heap ashes on the head of the late lamented. Do you remember Bobby Maxx? He didn't last nearly so long.
