School Foods : A TBB Talks Linkup

I’m a day behind on this because I took a pause from my regularly scheduled programming yesterday. I’m about 2% serious and 98% frivolous. Everyone okay with those ratios?

This is the last TBB Talks of September, and I hope they keep it going in October! I love having a theme to look at every week! This week’s theme is school foods – what we serve and what we ate. Since Charlotte isn’t in school yet, I don’t serve anything. If I did, it would be mac and cheese and sunflower seeds. Sunflower seeds are her thing right now. She definitely gets that from my mom!

I was a child who appreciated food, so I didn’t turn down a whole lot at school. However, there was one food that stood out above all other school cafeteria foods : the school cafeteria pizza.


This is not a true representation of the school cafeteria pizza, but it was the best Creative Commons licensed picture i could find!

Maybe I’m alone on this, but school cafeteria pizza was the best! There was something about those rectangles of pizza that made them more delicious than anything else in the cafeteria. But, part of me wonders if I had one today what I would think about it. I think it’s better to just keep it in the nostalgic past.

The other school food that stands out to me is curly fries. I know that’s really weird, but there’s a story behind it! When I started high school, we had so many options. There were sandwiches, hot lunches, side items, and probably more than my brain can remember. It was such a big deal to me that we could pick and choose what we ate. My “meal” of choice was curly fries and chocolate milk. Oh high school Amber, enjoy eating like that.

What were your favorite school foods? If you have kids, what do they like to eat at school?

  1. Oh man…my ALL TIME FAVORITE school meal (and still is) has to be Salisbury steak with gravy, mashed potatoes, green peas, anda roll šŸ˜šŸ˜‹ I’ll occasionally buy school lunch when it’s on the menu #perksofbeingasubteach

    • I feel like I knew that you liked green peas, but I had blocked that from my mind since they are the devil’s vegetable.

      If it’s pizza day somewhere you’re subbing, you’ve got to let me know so I can come eat it, I mean, visit you! šŸ˜‰
