Oh yes, I think we've discussed scrapple before.

My school served it over rice and it is one of the things that I really liked.

Heh. I won't eat scrapple, but I'm a huge fan of Lebanon bologne, both sweet and the other kind! They're probably both some kind of scrapple come to think of it....

I never ate the school lunch. My son bought 2 lunches every day. He loved it. There is an elderly woman across the street from us and she was the head lunch lady at the high school for years. Her family ate leftovers from the school lunch for dinner all those years! Her husband worked with my husband and he took some of the school lunch leftovers to work for lunch. Saved them tons of money.

I wonder if she always made extra so there would be leftovers for her to take home.

Btw... I have trader joes fish sticks in the toaster oven as I type.
I pick them often Jenny...just another thing that TJ's does extremely well.

I think it's time for a "favorite school lunch" thread. Again?

I don't recall Indian pudding or salmon croquettes.
Indian Pudding is a New England dish. Nasty stuff made with molasses, corn meal and raisins. A Julia Child favorite dish. They serve it at one of the restaurants , Durgin's Park at Fanuiel Hall. A tourist trap in Boston.

Sounds disgusting, Addie! Our lunch ladies made a decent rice pudding with raisins, and a nice crust if you were lucky. Think I'd rather have that.

That is so funny!

When most of the schools in Boston were built, they went home for lunch. Then it changed and the kids had to brown bag it as the schools had no cafeterias. The newer schools from 1950 had cafeterias built in. And some of the larger schools had class rooms taken and turned into a cafeteria. The school I went to during Jr. H. was originally the H.S. So it already had a cafeteria. And it wasn't cool to eat the cafeteria food. Most of us brown bagged it.

It is disgusting!!! The first time I ever had it I put one mouthful in and immediately puked all over the kid sitting next to me. I couldn't even swallow it.
