If we brought our own lunch we’d have PB&J or bologna and a piece of American cheese, I didn’t care for either.
It was an extravagance to have a red token for $.35 for a full meal of awful “swiss steak.” Then there was the green token, good for a cup of milk. I used to add a penny from my allowance to it to get the same amount of chocolate milk.
Not a mom, I don’t know what is happening with kids these days, especially those in households that cannot afford to keep them properly fed. We never went without food, it was a lunch box with a sandwich and a two-cent token for milk, or a school lunch for one red and one green token for lunch and the milk. Plus one cent from my immense $.50 weekly allowance for chocolate milk.
Right now I’d love to remember my lunch boxes as I had many and they would be heirlooms now. I can’t think of any! Tell Corky it was too early for “Remains of the Day” lunch boxes and “My Dinner with Andre” action figures! As you wish, Dee
Ha! Just figured out the difference between “Red & Black” (basic) & “Matador” (deluxe) meal plans at TT… (Initially I signed Z up for wrong one which I immediately fixed, but still likely he’ll need “supplements” ;-)
This was grade school, way before you got to grade school and college! Do they really call it “Matador?” I know you’ll do everything he needs. You always do. D
