    Pink custard, chocolate sponge with brown custard, GORGEOUS mashed potatoes (ours must have been the only ones without lumps LOL!), and later on when I went to a boarding school, huge trays of un-nameable slop, including lemon meringue pie with filling SO yellow it glowed, and tasted like washing up liquid! Yak!!

    I was also lucky at Primary school where my Gran was a dinner lady, our table always got a bit extra or any seconds going.

    At Secondary School a whole different ball game. We sat at mixed age tables and when you are a first year you only got what the older lads didn't want. Off course you did the same as you got older.

    The School then changed to a Comprehensive and they upgraded the canteen to self service, with 3 sittings. First sitting good choice but small portions, second sitting less choice good portions, 3rd sitting no choice pie and chips or sausage roll and chips but whopper portions. Ah the good ol days

    My fave was mince'n'spuds'n'onions in gravy, our school did a bread'n'butter'n'jam pudding in custard that was dee-licious !
    At day schools I got black banana sandwiches and a bottle of milk.
    Into the 5th Millennium & beyond...!
