1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
1⁄2 tsp. salt
1⁄2 tsp. white pepper
1⁄2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1⁄2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
2 1⁄2 cups mayonnaise
1⁄4 cup shallots, minced
1⁄2 cup scallions, minced
1⁄2 cup dill pickles, finely chopped
1 tbsp. parsley, finely chopped
1⁄2 tbsp. dill, finely chopped
1⁄2 tbsp. tarragon, finely chopped

1 1⁄2 cups coarse breadcrumbs
1 cup wild rice flour
3 eggs
3⁄4 cup milk
1⁄2 cup Dijon-style mustard
1 1⁄2 cups flour

12 6-oz. skinless walleye fillets

Steps

1. In a large bowl, combine honey, mustard, salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, and mayonnaise well. Whisk in remaining ingredients and chill.

2. Grind peppercorns and combine with breadcrumbs and wild rice flour. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs and milk.

The actual choice of wording places a positive emphasis on those that did come to serve our guests and patients. We no longer use the phrase “short staffed”; this is a game-changer when we are challenging ourselves as culture facilitators or leaders.

To make safe food as accessible as possible for our guests with allergies, we are creating an allergen-friendly kitchen this summer. Students and community members will be able to use our mobile app to place orders for allergen-friendly food and pick them up at the central kitchen. The kitchen will also produce grab-and-go options that will be distributed across campus.

About 90% of our students receive financial assistance and participate in our free and reduced-price meal program. But a number of students in our district study remotely due to circumstances such as chronic illness. In January, we hired a driver to deliver meals to students who aren’t able to step into our cafeteria each day.
