Pan fried potatoes sound exactly like Home fries.
Which are home made French fries where I come from...

pan fried potatoes are home fries here, but home made french fries are usually baked or deep fried, not pan fried.

 

 

I'm so glad there's codex otherwise I'd have no cultural awareness.

Fried potatoes are sort of a cross between baked potatoes and French fries.  Not as  greasy, and the tops are mushy mashy while the bottom might be a little crisp.  Granny B made her's more crispy, but Mom doesn't flip them more than once.   I think you also cook them in the same skillet as you cooked the pork or hamburgers so there are little crispy bits.

I do not see why my experience with eating lunch under Dad's overcoat is selfish.    My choices at that time were to go hungry or eat outside on a bench, my father took off his coat for me and made me a tent.


Your experience with eating lunch under your Dad's overcoat was not selfish. Your indication that Jake's allergy was unreasonable is selfish, and self-absorbed.

You, if you did not want to eat away from the other children, should have followed the regulations put in place to ensure that Jake did not have an allergic reaction that could, and I repeat, have endangered his life. You use phrases like "because of him" and "jumped into his mouth", as if the procedures instituted were a massive inconvenience to you, and that inconvenience was more important than a child's safety.

So yeah, selfish.

Are you intentionally misinterpreting his post in a futile effort to make him look foolish?

This is one of the favorite things trolls like to do. Or Tritium might have misunderstood it herself :p

I don't understand why Frizzle can't have their fried peanut butter and banana sandwich, cause I'm certainly not going to kiss them.  I'm sort of allergic.

I used to eat in a seperate classroom with a classmate who was [deathly] allergic to peanuts.  I dunno, I felt for him.  I love me some peanut butter, so I dunno how that feels.

So they made him eat lunch in a separate classroom instead of making everyone else not bring granola, peanut butter, chips, outside food not from a peanut free certified restaurant, cookies, cakes or fried peanut butter sandwiches? 

 

That is so sweet that you would go with him.  That is being a good friend!!!!

 

I've done the shots since I was three and doing food challenge therapy when I can.   Not had to use my epi pen for four years now!

I have sent lunch with my kids twice only to have it sent back to me in their backpacks. Their school even allows packed lunches. I had sent sandwiches, grapes, a cheese stick, and carrots. What pisses me off (other than the fact that they didn't let my kids eat the lunch I sent them and made them eat shitty school lunch) is that I had spent the time cutting the carrots into heart-shaped slices. I packed those lunches with love and they weren't eaten :(

Wait, why were they sent back? I'd be PISSED. It's time-consuming to make hearts out of anything. Stupid curves.

Nymh my mother did the same for me in lower grade the lunches were not sent back but  she got a little nasty note about meals not being balanced.    They did take away my cashews when I was in third grade thinking my mother did not know enough to know my own allergies.

All of this sounds very controlling to me, at least compared to where I come from.

Every kid here, from primary school to high school, all bring their lunches from home — usually sandwiches or leftovers from a dinner, with muesli bars/chips/fruit.

Most schools also provide an option to buy lunches from a "tuck shop"... but most kids would only buy from there once a week.

 

Forcing kids to have lunches from the school cafeteria sounds expensive and not as healthy...

Reminds me of the news story about when parents over here were selling kids burgers n shit through the school fence lol. Anyways i think its fucked up that schools would control their pupils' lunches, sending a kids lunch back and making them get a dinner from the school sounds like they're tryina make extra money, what happens if the kid doesn't like anything the school has cooked up?

They "starve", I guess. Personally, I think kids should suck it up and eat what they're served whether they like it or not, but I'm also a grown up and in charge of the menu, so only eat things I don't like a couple times a month.
But if it isn't healthy, then I don't think it should be mandatory. And "healthy" is so subjective, it's impossible to appease everyone.
