Ok, does anyone remember school lunch? I think I'm probably one of the only people who actually liked to eat in the cafeteria. I know many people who wouldn't have eaten the food served in there if their life depended on it. So call me crazy, but for some strange reason I was one of the few who ate cafeteria food on a daily basis and liked it. The other day, I have no idea why, I remembered one of the 'desserts' that I ate with many of my school lunches. It had to be back in the 70's when I had it and I have no idea if they still serve it, but here it is...
Seriously, it's really good. Try it and see if it brings back memories!
|"Does it look familiar at all?"|
Yes, pear halves sprinkled with lime jello. I know, I know now there's proof that I am crazy!
