Aloha! Happy Friday! I hope that you have all had a pleasant week.My question this week is what was your favorite school lunch as a kid?

As an elementary scholar, I remember it being a good day when they had chicken patty sandwiches. By the time I reached Jr. High, chicken patties were available for purchase every day. Chicken patties and fries were a staple of most kids diet at my school. With an ice cream sandwich or brown mule for dessert. (I believe the sandwich was $.35, fries $.25, diet coke $.50 and ice cream .$50).

I'm pretty certain that the chicken patty was nothing more than chicken toes, ground, pressed, breaded and fried. On a white bun with a squirt of ketchup, they had absolutely zero nutritional value. If I had to eat one now, I would surely gag. Blech! But, as a kid, they were tops.

So, what was your favorite school lunch?

Be sure to stop by An Island Life for more Aloha Friday fun. And, if you're playing today, be sure to leave your link below!

Pizza and hot dogs were pretty popular days when I was a kid.

I loved the school's pizza and fries. I probably would not even attempt to eat them now, but they were awesome when I was a kid. Aloha and take care.

Our school had the BEST hot sandwiches. I remember the pizza being good too but if I ate it today I would probably disagree.

LOL...oh my word...chicken toes!!! Haha!!! Gosh, I remember when things were so cheap at school!!!

My fave food at school were the grilled cheese sandwiches, and they were only $1!!

When I was a kid, hamburgers were a rare and special treat.

I was a lunchbox kid - mom never let me buy lunch. I can probably count on one hand how many hot lunches I got at school and they would all be pizza that I begged and begged and drove her crazy to buy me. I was a PB&J kid.

I loved their tuna fish sandwiches. I ate one just about every other day, since some of their other food was kinda gross. lol

I never ate school lunch in elementary school, but in junior high, lunch consisted of Funyuns and a fruit punch! :D

My favorite days in elementary school were when my Mom would drop off Taco Bell right before lunch. She's the best!

I remember it well. There were 3:
Grilled cheese (which I don't think was actually grilled)
Little pizzas
and those packaged hamburgers.

All with fries and choc milk.

I remember loving the pizza on Fridays. It is probably really gross but I can remember loving that day because of the pizza.

Annie said...

I loved mexican food day! Oh yummy a burrito with cheese and salsa.....

And I hated when my mom packed me lunch LOL it was always just a PB&J (that was smashed and gooey by lunchtime) with a whole apple or orange....and that was it.

Mine was fried chicken. That was the only day I didn't bring a lunch from home. When I was a kid we had these local ladies that worked in the cafeteria and they would make HOMEMADE cinnamon rolls! Unfortunatly, they always served them with beefaroni or something gross. I was usually able to trade something from my lunch box for one though. If only they would have served them with the fried chicken!!
