Whenever anyone ever mentions school dinners, it always brings up a multitude of opinions – likes and dislikes.
Depending on which decade you were either lucky or unfortunate to participate in the daily ritual, there are hundreds of stories to tell.
Can anyone remember the spam fritters, chips and beans?
And what about sponge cake and pink custard? A frightening sight for some, but a dessert delight for others.
Some days you just dreaded the menu – lumpy mashed potato with mince and onions which had no flavour. And when it was followed by tapioca (frogspawn as many called it), then some could be put off for life.
You would pray for the simple fish fingers and chips with peas followed by ice cream.
For some, vegetables were the main culprit in the serving - either hard and under-cooked or over-cooked and mushy.
Probably one of the biggest fears in seeing the day’s offering was liver and onions, ox liver to be precise. Thick, chewy and full of tubes. More often than not dishes like this would never see clean plates.
