Mini-memoir Monday

What was your favorite school cafeteria food when you were young? I've talked to a bunch of people about this on Facebook. Amazing how a single food can take you right back to the olden days. For me it was;

Cheese Zombies
Zippy Dogs
Hamburger gravy on mashed potatoes

It was also at the cafeteria table that I learned that I love apple crisp, but only like apple pie. Sorry, Mom.

PS The photo is Edison elementary school where I was in grades 1-6. I'm so glad I took a picture of it before the bulldozed it for a newer version!

I never ate in the school cafeteria, but brought brown bag bologna sandwiches most of the time. And a Twinkie. Great reminder to take pictures of your (or your kids') schools. My kids' elementary school is in the midst of being reconfigured and reconstructed, destroying some old memories.

In high school it was Mrs. Pope's sloppy Joes.

Linda - The architecture of the physical building may be destroyed but a memory can never be.

Irishoma - Welcome! Mrs. Pope's huh? So you even knew the name of the cook? That's great!
