To compare with the chicken fajita I photographed earlier this week, I give you the same dish as it was presented in September. The frozen and re-heated diced chicken is the same, but here the pinto beans were deployed as posted on the Chartwells menu website rather than the black beans.
This student apparently ordered the fajita without the whole wheat tortilla.
But notice also that the "peach cup," meaning canned peaches, was being served without the cup. Likewise, the "salsa cup" consisted of salsa ladled directly onto the tray. Lately, these items have been served in actual plastic cups and one might wonder why, since the kids don't seem to care either way and those plastic cups not only don't come free, they create more waste for the landfill.
