What are my thoughts this Thursday...school lunch.
You know how we tend to forget certain things from the past, but there are a few lunches that stick out in my mind. I always brown bagged it. Sometimes I would get "hot lunch" ( so funny typing that...do they even call it that any more?)
My favorite lunch was bologna on white bread with mayo and lettuce, a bag of potato chips (just a few that my mom bagged herself) and a homemade dessert (usually a cookie that I never ate.) The best part about the sandwich was when I put all the potato chips on the sandwich and crushed them in there. OMG I could eat one right now!! Lol That is probably the most UNhealthy lunch ever, now that I think about it!!
The one thing I always longed for and never had in my lunch was a store bought treat. My mom always baked something for our lunches. Funny how we didn't know to appreciate it then. Only as we grow older do we see how much time it took for her to do that.
My most favorite treat that I would trade something for was the Hostess Ding Dong. Remember them? Little individual bundles of joy all wrapped in foil. Ahhhh, my mouth is watering.
Look at the package. You can faintly see on the right where it says "Vitamin Fortified". Yeah, right...what vitamin could survive in that sea of sugar!!
I remember spreading out the foil wrapper and rubbing it smooth with the back of my thumb nail until it shined like silver.
Why is all this coming back to me all of a sudden...so funny!!
Now it's your turn...
- What was in your lunch box?
- Brown bag, lunch box or hot lunch?
- Did you eat the same thing everyday?
