The only thing I balked on was cooked spinach. I had a deal with one of the classmates who ate mine and loved it.

Ham and beans with cornbread and hot syrup. I learned later that the hot syrup helped control gas so the afternoon classes were not distracting...if you get my drift.

5. I don't remember loving any of it.

But I do recall quite well a particularly repellent dish that we called "Mystery Meat." This was a sort of ground beef in gravy with large globs of fat, poured over instant mashed potatoes. I last saw it in 1965 and I can still remember the sight and smell as if I had stumbled across it yesterday while cleaning up cat vomit.

I have tried to figure out why our cats, when they start to hack something up, will run from the tile floor in the kitchen, onto the carpet in either the family room or dining room. Especially my one Oriental carpet. Happens every damn time.

They did almost everything from scratch. When they baked rolls you could smell it all morning. To die for spaghetti with rolls. I still dream about it. So different now. They also baked birthday cake once a month. Soooo good.

On edit: Lunch was $.30/day.

Caroline Street (elementary) School, Saratoga Springs, NY, lunch was a quarter. You placed it on the corner of your tray and the lady at the cash register would pick it up when you walked by. At some point, I believe it went up to 30-cents.

The kids who brought their lunch paid a nickle for milk. We also put it on the right-hand corner of the tray. The lunch ladies had all worked there for eons and knew all of us by name and they also knew our birthdays. So different now.

92. Ah! Did you ever have milk breaks?

When I was first in school farther north - Ticonderoga, NY - we had a milk break at some point in the morning. Milk was 2 or 3-cents, IIRC, and kids took turns bringing in a package of cookies. Chocolate milk was an option and I regretted the weeks I forgot to choose it. The milkman who brought the milk every day had a daughter in my class, remember envying her because she got to see her Dad. But there were no hot lunches in those old schools, you were expected to bring something from home and we ate right in the classroom.

93. No, we didn't have milk breaks.

We got to bring a snack from home to eat mid-morning. It had to be something healthy: an apple, carrot sticks, etc. That was the first time I ever saw a pomegranate. One of my classmates brought one for snack time and I was fascinated; it looked so exotic. I couldn't wait to tell my mom about it when she picked me up that day. She HAD to buy me a pomegranate for snack. It's so funny what we remember.

And sometimes a coconut - it was up to my Dad to deal with those, he'd drill a hole in in and pour the "milk" out before splitting it. I guess they wanted us to experience something different.

Dad traveled a lot visiting cotton gins all over the south and he would bring sugar cane back from LA.

We will agree to disagree about pickles. I have never been able to stand even the smell. Don't know why because everyone else in my family enjoyed them.

I've always liked pickles, especially the half sour ones. I was the first child in my entire extended family so I spent a lot of time with adults. My grandmother would reminisce about the times she and my aunt would take me out to lunch with them when I was really young - they'd let me order anything I wanted and apparently one time I chose a pickle!

105. When I attended Catholic school in

1953 and 1954 we had a milk break in the morning. I believe we paid 7 cents for the milk. Our choices were orange drink, white milk, or chocolate milk. We ordered a week at a time, as I recall, and I always got chocolate milk except for one week when I thought I'd try orange drink. What a mistake. I still recall it as an awful week I simply had to endure.

That Catholic school had a basement level "cafeteria", which I'm putting in quotes because I'm pretty certain no food was prepared there. I know that I always brought my own lunch (and having a lunchbox and thermos was very important) every single day. Mostly peanut butter and jelly.

107. Maybe ours was less expensive since we lived in dairy country...

But it does sound like a similar experience. Except it was only white or chocolate milk for us - and I always regretted not remembering to choose the chocolate - and, yes, it was always for the entire week. But from what you said, I guess we were lucky, LOL. One thing I do remember was that it was always ice cold, it was brought right into the class every day by the milkman, whose daughter was my classmate.

And I went to a parochial school for kindergarten. We had a "snack break" there, as well. But no milk for us as 4 and 5-year-olds. I remember that very well, it was graham crackers and ice cold water, served in little Dixie cups. Since my parents paid tuition for that school, I wonder why, but that's just the way it was...

7. I actually liked the au gratin potatoes. Everyone else called them "old rotten potatoes,"

but I enjoyed them. I think the fact that my mother loved to cook and was fearless and adventurous in her cooking made a big difference. I grew up being encouraged to eat just about any and everything and enjoying most of it. Those split pears weren't bad, either.

16. Can't really think of one.

I grew up in Rochester NY, in the late 1950s and all of the 1960s. Rochester has a huge Italian population, most of whom are Catholic - no meat on Fridays. Lunches on Friday were, alternating on an every other week pattern, fish sticks or cheese pizza. The pizza was reasonably tasty. That was it - one "entrée," if you could call it that, per day. No choices.

Milk was 4 cents a carton. Lunch was 30 cents.

A regular, and repulsive item was lemon or lime jello with canned peas and shredded carrots in it. Truly vile.

20. Every Friday in Junior High,

Chili with a big cinnamon roll with lots of icing.

Edit to add, this was in the mid 60's and everything was cooked or baked in the school. Those rolls smelled so good every Friday. I think the first year I was there we had something else because of the "no fish on Friday" rule for the Catholic students. I cannot remember.

I remember how nice it was to eat at school. In grade school you had to bring your lunch or walk home to eat no food was provided since most of our Moms did not work. I always had to walk since it was only about 15 minutes away and 15 back. Fun in the snow!

22. Way back when our small rural school started serving lunches, our first cook was one of

the local women who had fixed meals for field hands in her younger days. Everyone called her Aunt Cord. She was a wonderful cook and made the best chocolate cake that I have ever tasted in my life. I don't know how she made it, but it had the taste of fresh cream to it. After 60+ years, I can still remember that cake.

I've never actually managed to replicate this. It had the consistency of good brownies, and kind of a ganache frosting. I asked the cafeteria lady what made it so good, and she said, "We use pickle juice instead of water."

I never have figured out whether she meant this, or if she meant, "Go away, I don't reveal my recipes.

I can taste it now... only in my head. I wish I could actually taste it.

They would use ice cream scoop to ladle out the potatoes, then indent top with scoop and ladle in melted butter.

I brought my own lunch most of time, which was just as awful with soggy bread with peanut butter and jelly or thermos of awful canned soup and crackers. My favorite lunch from home was just a can of sardines that I would open, but I could expect no friends to sit nearby on those days.

I never could eat at school... They had a pot roast (congealed/nasty) and slimey lima beans--among other offerings that would make me nauseous before I ever entered the cafeteria.

In first grade a teacher made me sit in the cafeteria for more than an hour because I refused to eat.

I don't remember what happened after that but I don't remember ever even attempting to eat at school again, except sandwiches I brought myself.

44. One lunch-lady made baked mac and cheese with chunks of chicken (tuna on Friday) and crumbly topping

This was in the Elementary School in Seattle I spent 4th - 6th grade in, the year before they switched to a Middle School system.
They always served it with French cut green beans with almonds - which were okay because they always used frozen veggies rather than canned.
The one that made it did her own roux sauce with real grated Colby cheese (not Velveeta!) in the sauce before mixing everything together and tossed bread crumbs on top.

The lunch ladies also baked their own Lasagna, which was hit or miss depending on who was making it at the time, and made halfway decent chicken fried and/or Salisbury steak. Mash potatoes were almost always fresh. We only had the package potatoes during January/February, when fresh potatoes were harder to come by.

Breakfast if you got there early - fresh baked sweet rolls and breads for toast, where they made French Toast, scrambled eggs and ham, those little box cereals you opened up and tried to put milk in without getting it all over the place, and seasonal fruit.

It was so good that when the PTA held a fund raiser, they sold tickets to a spaghetti dinner at the school - and sold out!

The worst thing they made was this stuff we called Prune Whip - it was made from powdered milk and canned prunes, beaten until it was fluffy and purple. Nasty stuff that everyone hated.

It's a Nebraska thing.

A mixture of ground beef, cabbage, and spices baked inside a pocket of bread.
Sort of a Eastern European version of a pasty.

They were wonderful.

In one form or another it was served at very school I attended. Usually it was a concoction of pureed stewed prunes and whipped cream, chilled and spooned into dishes with chopped nuts on top. There was also a pie version that mixed the prune puree with molasses in a custard base with nuts on top. I like prunes so I always ate the stuff, but most kids hated it.

106. Through 8th grade I was in a small school in upstate NY.

I think they contracted with the local farmers for the raw ingredients because our food was incredibly good. I will admit that my favorite was ice cream, which might have been local but it was still ice cream.

Right before my freshman year of high school we moved to Tucson, Arizona. This was 1962, so the food was still going to be local and largely made in the school cafeteria, as industrial food wasn't much happening yet. I actually didn't often eat the lunches, because at that point I couldn't afford them. I would get a carton of milk and a couple of chocolate chip cookies (total cost a dime) to take me through the day my freshman year. Then I had a bit more money and bought lunch about half the time and as I recall it was pretty good. Again, it was being made on site, with fresh ingredients. The only specific meal I can recall was the Thanksgiving lunch, which was incredibly good.

A lot of the answers here are going to depend on when the respondent went to school. After 1970 or so, industrial food started showing up, and so less and less real food was out there.

Oh, and at my school in Tucson, I could buy a couple of chocolate chip cookies (rather light on the chocolate chips I always noted) for five cents. Keep in mind this was 1962.

In elementary school, which was the 60's for me, it was all food cooked by lunch ladies. My mother was one of them for a couple of years. It was good food, but not particularly memorable, except the time Bryan S* and I had to stay in the lunchroom until we finished our spinach. That was some revolting stuff.
I think PoindexterOglethorpe has it right upthread; the answers and descriptions of food quality are dependent upon the time period.
