can you remember your elementary school lunches?

im 37 now but i can still remember what my school used to serve. i remember getting a calander for the whole month that showed what would be served on that given day. i remember deep dish pizza that was baked on a cake pan and cut into squares, a pretty hefty portion for a little guy too. i remember fish sticks and french fries. i remember a taco, a regular corn tortilla filled with some kind of meat/bean mixture that seemed all ground up together and then deep fried. i also remember the meat loaf and mashed potatoes served with green peas and a girl sitting next to me telling me that green peas make you fat as i was shoveling them down. my last reccolection was when you forgot your lunch money they gave us a roll and a box of milk, your choice of chocolate or white. im sure the chocolate probably went at a good 5-1 ratio.

Yeah, I remember them, and most of them were worth forgetting. The food in the public schools here SUCKS.

About the only exception was the macaroni and cheese they gave us in high school. The HS was getting that great, high fat "government cheese" they used to give out in the 80's...man was it ever good!

In the late 1950's:

Canned green beans. Macaroni & cheese. Spaghetti with canned tomato sauce (being of Italian descent, the spaghetti sauce they used was clearly a crime against tomatoes). Bologna sandwiches. Grilled cheese. Salisbury steak and noodles. A slab of vanilla ice cream. Milk. Juice. All-in-all, an ill-conceived gastronomic tragedy-in-the-making that made many kids terribly ill after lunch. I ate a grand total of one week's lunches there and after I tossed up three of those five lunches somewhere in between dismissal and bedtime, my mother flatly decided I should either come home every day - which I usually did as it was a short three block walk - or brown bag it. Mercy but that cafeteria could ruin almost anything that started out as being edible.

Let's not forget the Chicken/Turkey Dressing that they served us before Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays.

Even though it was tecnically terrible, I always loved the spaghetti. I've never seen spaghetti noodles that thick- it must have been like a #4 pasta or something- freakin diameter of chain link fencing, and yet... comforting. Mmmm was it good. And awful. But mostly good.

In high school all the lunch ladies loved me, because I was one of the only, if not the only, kids who had any manners and treated them with the same respect I treat any human being- particularly one who is handling my food! It's astonishing how far a simple but sincere "please" and "thank you" will go with some people. They always made sure I had the "best" food- the biggest slice of pizza, the unscorched piece of lasange, if they were at the end of a tray of casserole when I got to them, they would get a fresh tray rather than serve me the last scoop from an old tray, etc... All because I smiled at them and said, "may I please have..." and then "thank you" when I got it.

I remember salty veggies cooked to mush, soggy fried fish, chicken fried meat patty with white stuff that looked like gravy but tasted like paste, hambergers with atleast one or two chunks of bone in every patty.
I don't miss that crap a bit.

We had soy burgers with the occasional dead roach on top. Burritos, I remember one time, there this was a girl sitting next to me at the table and when she bit into her burrito, she found a hot dog in the middle of the beans. I wouldn't think those 2 things would be made in the same factory.
They had the best rolls, decent chocolate pudding, and every once in awhile, we got cheese stuffed crust pizza. Aside from that, they didn't serve a whole lot of edible food.

Ya know, I don't think I actually can. I do remember that funds were always tight and that until I hit high school, I think all three of us brought our own lunches to school, aka 'sack lunch'.

our food in school was always good.

good luck trying to find them on the school lunch menu today.

Standard hamburgers and fries. Square slices of pizza (always Italian sausage) Mushy veggies, powdered smashed taters and taco day One thing I do recall is no matter what grade you were in you got exactly the same amount of food.
