I guess we lucked out along with Goodweed. Our cafeteria served really good food and Thursdays were the days that they really served the great stuff (fried chicken, pork chops, lasagna, etc. and for desserts cake). Fresh homemade rolls were served daily. Still wished I could make those rolls like they did.......

I've been trying to think of ONE meal from high school - I don't even remember what the cafeteria looked like. I know we moved a lot but my last two years were in one place - still can't remember and never could.

Every U.S. high school cafeteria ever built served the infamous Tuna Casserole, Corned Beef Hash Caserole, and Shephard's Pie.

Mav, as for that tuna casserole, if you really want to make it, just boil up some egg-noodles until they're limp, drain them, add cream of mushroom soup, and tuna. That's all there is to it. I can't help you with the chicken ala king though as our schools didn't make that.

That may be true Goodweed - I just don't remember. I do remember that when I took my lunch on Guam I took a cheese sandwich - by the time lunch rolled around the cheese was properly melted. The classrooms were air conditioned but the hallways were to the outside of the buildings with louvered windows always open - so the cheese was limp and "melty" - and always perfectly yummy!

Uh, we never had Shepard's Pie or Corned Beef hash casserole. And believe it or not, I have made Tuna Casserole that way, but it just isn't the same as our school cafeterias, I swear. Maybe they did something else to it, or maybe I just did the pasta wrong or something. I think I also remember them using spaghetti noodles instead of the egg noodles though I have tried both.
Or maybe I am just hopeless on this just like I am hopeless on fried chicken, LOL!

I also loved our cafeteria's coleslaw-------they would mince it really fine and obviously added a little sugar and slaw dressing----so good----would love to know how they made that, too

we didn't have cafeterias at school. A canteen yes, but they didn't serve proper meals. hot dogs, pizza singles, meat pies, pasties, sausage rolls, sandwiches and rolls. Icecreams, drinks, crisps, fruit etc.
