Menu XVI: Three Meals a Day, plus Jakob's Special Menu

The little guy was feeling sorta left out because his special menu is not posted here.  However, he is quite ritualistic and eats the same menu each day, so I will post it once and you can just multiply it in your mind times seven and you will have a pretty good picture of what he eats.
