When I think back on it now, all those school lunches blur together. Lunch was social time and a break from classes. The eating part of lunchtime was just incidental!
After grade school, it was exclusively lunches brought from home for me. I remember a lot of turkey sandwiches. There was always an apple or banana. And also trying to desperately trade away my mother's homemade chocolate chip cookies for Little Debbie's Snack Cakes - oh, how I shake my head at that younger me!
It's actually funny to realize how little has changed. I still always pack fruit, though the turkey sandwich has been (mostly) replaced by whatever is left from dinner the night before. Instead of juice boxes, I bring my own thermos filled at home. Still the same basic components packaged neatly in a little lunch bag.
Except that I definitely don't trade away those cookies anymore. Those are all mine.
What are your school lunch memories?
