    Default School Dinners. Did you love them or hate them?

    I was at school in the 60s and I must admit the school dinners where pretty grosse. There where some exceptions though. I used to love the cheese flan/tart, which was quite tasty and the manchester tart for pudding. The Pink Blancmange was ok. What I hated was the mash potato, which was usually lumpy and had black bits in . Cabbage which was usually drenched in cold dishwater type gravy. Fish in batter, that was usually soggy. In School we rarely had chips back then, and if we did, it was like a treat. There where no soft drinks, only water. There was none of the `healthy eating ` options like today. Or Burgers or the likes on the menu. Sometimes you would get something you did like, only to find the boy sat opposite would douse it in salt.

    We even used to get school dinners in the holidays. We all used to go, it was the only hot meal we had. I loved them.

    I loved school dinner in the infants. Especially the puddings. However, this is where I found out that I can not stomach Walnuts.
    I remember it like it was yesterday.....I got semolina pudding with a walnut on. I'd never seen a walnut before nevermind tasted one. Anyway I ate all the semolina and then thinking I have saved the best till last I started eating this small nobbly nut. As soon as I swallowed it the rest of my pudding came back up followed by my dinner. I filled my pudding bowl back up to the brim.
    So walnuts are a no go.
    Speaking of school dinners....I loved the rice pudding and I remember it being white not cream coloured. Mix the jam and it went pink. Why can't we get rice pud like that now?

    I hated the Friday meatless stuff... even though the Catholics went to a different school.
    Fish pie and cheese pie were quite revolting - it took me years to get over the cheese pie memories and eat a pizza...

    I bicycled a 5 mile round trip home each lunch for mum's food....
