    Glop is the right word in so many ways.

    ‘Look at this steak! It still has marks from where the jockey hit it!’

    The special today is pudding. Made in the traditional Scottish way.
    (A ~1900 cookbook my mom has described how one took blood, salt, pepper, onions and put them in cow intestines. They would be stored as they were in the kitchen without refrigeration and boiled when wanted.)

    some of my deepest memories of school were formed in the cafeteria… we didn’t have “mystery meat” but we did have “rainbow meat” , so called because it seemed to have bands of different colors running through it. and also “Creechville Round Steak” which was steamed slices of bologna.

    We saw them making Blood Pudding on “How It’s Made”, and my husband actually had some once (once was enough, he said).

    The cafeteria food was never bad at the schools I went to. In High School, we even had a “pizza line”, where we could get things like pizza or cheese sticks every day.

    In one of my favorites a guy was scooping “food” out if a cauldron and missed the guy’s plate. He yelled “Pick it up!” but the other guy said “Too late, it’s gone!” I labelled that with the name of our college food company and tacked it up on the bulletin board outside the cafeteria, and I heard they were asking around to find out who had done it. They were really awful, and the next year they were gone.

    My mother in law would make what she called “chocolate soup”. Looked like chocolate, but was really made from duck’s blood. Never fooled me, and I never had the courage to try it.

    You can’t have pizza today or cheeze sticks. The food nazis have decreed that they are not good for you therefore are verboten. Also nien on the trans-fats and sugary sodas.

    Let’s just hope that the lettuce is green and the meat is brown instead of the other way around.

    I don’t want to hear it from any of you unless YOUR food service killed somebody.

    Did that kid in front skip grades, or is he just really short?
