Even though I’m no longer in school, the start of September makes me nostalgic for that fresh school year feeling. Of course my favorite part of the school day was always lunch. I loved being able to talk and sit with my friends and even better than that was the food.
In middle school, I remember I was amazed by the lunch choices that were available to me. At first I didn’t know what to do with myself. There was pizza, slushies, curly fries, cookies and ice cream. Eventually I started to get pizza, French fries and then I would round out the meal with a chocolate éclair ice cream bar. Eventually the woman who worked behind the counter knew my order and would have it ready for me. This was probably the most special I’ve ever felt in all of my years at school. Did you have a typical school lunch?
