We also enjoyed a “Charlie Brown” dinner where we “ordered” our lunch based on a menu of the adult speak “wah, wah” off of Charlie Brown. Each course, you were surprised to see exactly what you had ordered. Perhaps, applesauce with no utensils or a napkin, spoon, and fork with no food. After each course, we discussed our emotions based on our meal.
