When you went to school did you carry your lunch or get it at school? What was your favorite cafeteria hot lunch or if you took your own what was your favorite to pack? School lunches today aren't what they were when I went to school. They have so many choices now day but we had one menu each daily.

Most often I took my lunch but once in a while I bought. My favorites were tuna casserole or mac and cheese...because they made it all from scratch. But the best day of all to buy was on Fridays...they made their own cinnamon rolls that filled an entire compartment on those plastic trays. Dad was a teacher at school and on cinnamon roll day he always bought one for mom and took it home for her. She loved them! But once I was in junior high and high school I took my own lunch and every day was the same thing...tuna sandwich. I loved them. Still enjoy them once in a while.

What was your favorite school lunch?
Chutzie shocked smilewinkgrin

ps...I also loved those canned purple plums that were military surplus. They were issued them by the government and 99% of the kids dumped them in the trash. ok, a few of them launched them on a spoon when the lunch room 'police' weren't looking...lol smhair

Where do you come up with these topics? I always bought my lunch, I hated the school cafeteria food! When my mom made meat loaf for supper the night before, she would always make me cold meat loaf sandwiches for my lunch with catsup and a slice of american cheese on it with a thin layer of Mayo! I loved that for lunch! For me it was always a toss-up between that sandwich and having my Peanut butter ( Jiff creamy) and sliced banana with Mayo ( thick layer) and Barbecued Potato Chip sandwich. ( the chips added crunch and extra flavor) Even to this day I love both of these sandwiches!

Ok, I came from a high school that had a total of 100 students!! I had 25 in my graduating class. There was no cafeteria! LOL So we always brought our lunch from grade school pretty much all the way up. Sometimes once we were driving and someone had a car we'd take off to a local burger joint for lunch, but that wasn't often as we were in a small town and there weren't many burger joints either! And "good girls" didn't go in them (well, at least not with her parents' permission :-) ).

White Beard - I love peanut butter and banana sandwhiches! But not with all the other stuff! LOL

Yep, WB. But the creamy stuff! I've actually been doing a lot of PB&J, as well as PB & Bananas lately. Easy dinner! LOL

And easy on the teeth (I'll have to start a thread about that, but not in the mood tonight! )

My favorite Lunch sandwich was always a left over meatloaf sandwich...
I'd always throw out the bologna sandwiches and sometimes even the pb &j...
I might try the PB&J with bananas sometime!

OMG White Beard knows about peanut butter, banana & mayo sanwiches. I still eat those lol, my husband gags at the sight of me eating one lol. Oh, I am with Chutz on the cinnamon rolls, oh yummy they were so good. But I took my lunch some times, rarely bought it, picky eater, ate alot of peanut butter, it kept well, we had no A/C in school. My favorite meal or should says meals, is in grade school I went to my grandmothers for lunch nearly every day. Monday for sure because she had left over roast with noodles, green peas, and usually another vegetable of some sort. My grandparents lived one block from my school. Granny made the very best roast & egg noodles cooked in the broth from the roast. I make the very same meal to this day and every now & then my noodles taste almost like Granny's. No one can make Granny's tho lol. She always had cherry pie for me its my favorite and Papaw always gave me a chocolate moon pie lol. I was a skinny kid and ate all of this stuff lol. My Papaw ate his green peas on a butter knife that was very wide, his coffee was poured in a cup with a saucer, he poured some of the coffee in the saucer and drank from the saucer.I remember the silverware being big and heavy stuff. To this day I still eat peanut butter and grape jelly sandwiches, it has been a main stay for me because with the crohns sometimes its the only thing I can eat. I have had them when put in the hospital before lol. If ya don't eat for 3 days they will give you anything lol. Hugs to all.

I love you guys!!!! You ALWAYS make me smile. I make my sons' lunch to take to school. Today he had a turkey and cheese sandwich, pretzels, a jello cup with peaches in it, 2 small boxes of raisons,and a capri sun drink. Yesterday he had peanut butter and jelly. He loves it with bananna too. I mix the peanut butter and jelly together and then mix the bananna in too. I mix it real good and pile it on thick. It really is good. I can say, I have never thought to put mayo on it. That sounds quiet different. I ate the school lunch most of the time. My mom wouldn't make my lunch.

Anice,
I've got to try that mixing of the pb&j first and then adding the banana. Sounds intriguing! But the mayo....sorry, guys, I'll just say politely that doesn't sound appealing to this lady! LOL

I know most of you guys are in the States - I'm in the UK and over here the school dessert to be avoided at all costs was a short of overcooked chocolate cake with pink custard! It was truly revolting and I reckon many Brits my age would shudder at the memory of it. (I know the question was lunches you liked, not hated, but it just reminded me of that). Anyway, I like the idea of peanut butter and bananas, I'm off to try it!

I also brought my lunch. It was usually PB&J -- boring, but good! I actually haven't had a PB&J sandwich in a while. Now after reading all these posts, I'm craving one. I don't think we have any bread, though. sad

I actually discovered in college that toasted PB&J sandwiches are really good. You just toast the bread before putting the PB&J on. It makes the peanut butter all warm & gooey. I forget where I got the idea from, but I learned about it sometime during exams, my first semester. Now I always make them during exam crunch time!

Be adventurous, I know Peanut butter and Mayo sounds bad but really it is extremely good and with the banana and barbecued potato chips mmmmmmmmmm it just can't be beat! You really should try my other one that I like, Since I don't drink milk, I put OJ on my cereal, Orange Juice on Cranberry Almond Crunch is absolutely fantastic! or Raisin Brand or Grapenuts or Sugar Frosted Flakes, they are all fantastic with Orange Juice! Really there is nothing better than dunking chocolate chip cookies in OJ. It is better than dunking them in coffee! and I like that tooo!

Chutzie - I'm with you on the mayo! The pink custard....well, maybe if it was strawberry and vanilla mixed? LOL

White Beard - I try to eat lower fat meals and mayo isn't on the menu. I only use a small bit once in awhile. And citrus juices are out now with the Barrett's. Many changes because of that. More loss, but that's not for this thread!

Hey White Beard the roast & noodles are awesome aren't they? I know we are a little off track but, I gotta share this one with WB. My aunt used her pressure cooker for everything, She cooked her roast in it, then added i can of beef broth to the drippings from the roast. Then to make things looks really like a nice dark juice she used a couple of drops os somthing called kitchen bouquet. Her noodles were pretty close to granny's. Sorry but I am out on yardbird lol. The UK dessert sounds totally disgusting. I can't drink OJ-GERD sets me on fire. I like to just slice my bananas for peanut butter.

When I make pot roast I alway use Kitchen Bouquet to darken up the gravy it is great stuff! I just done a chuck roast with onions and carrots and cellery and potatoes around it, after it was done I took it all out and put the roaster up on the bunners and added a little water to the juices and got it boiling and then added my flour and water mixture to thicken it up and a little Kitchen bouquet, the chuck roast makes the most flavorful gravy, and just pour it over all the meat and vegges oh what a meal!. I think chuck roast makes awsome beef and noodles and also vegetable beef soup! MMMM!

Okay I dont know where some of you went to school but I went to the east side of cleveland and the menu sucked big time they had fish that was so smelly it made you sick in class or pizza that was so dry it could be used as a chew toy for my dog! I was so happy when my mom packed our lunches we got everything so good, home made vegetable soup or chicken soup and my favorite, mom would send fried chicken oh it was so good, mom always made the best fried chicken, think I will make chcken for dinner and now I have to go get a glass of OJ because you guys made me thirsty!! See ya guys later!
