We went to a party at a country club over the weekend. My own husband was the "food committee". The fried chicken was NOT on my diet - but due to the restrictions of what high school students can be expected to pay AND the number of guaranteed attendees - there was a limited selection of about three dishes in the price range. One of which they had had at the last three annual parties.........and had overheard comments about the kids being tired of THAT.
The third option was something which was not going to work for a significant number of the kids due to religious grounds...........they had to pick one of the available chicken dishes.
Next year's event is up in the air - as this was the event where there turned out to be shoe polish left on the carpet in the lobby...........if anyone saw my rant.
