Cauliflower or macaroni cheese. I still cant stand the smell of either let alone taste the stuff.

Yes, the lumpy mash. I'd forgotten about the rice and rosehip syrup - thanks for reminding me. Sometimes it was semolina. And how about tapioca? Worst of all was mashed swede.

Ox tongue was disgusting but my worst memories are of the overweight and overbearing dinnerladies who loomed ober you and forced you to eat the stuff.

I have not eaten goulash since being forced to eat some at Primary school. The meat was obviously the stuff picked up off the abatoir floor and tasted disgusting. I will never forget picking out nine lumps of gristle. YUK.

My nan was a dinner lady at St Pancras for many years (Anyone who went there remember Jean Frost?). Sometimes she would bring surplus puddings home. The white sauce and the iced buns were lovely but the dinners themselves weren't so nice.

My dislike of tinned tomatoes probably stems from my primary school years. My school dinners (main) were contaminated with the acidic juice that ran across the plate and destroyed previously decent food.
Desserts - we used to have some fantastic trifles prepared in really huge trays. And we were allowed to go back for seconds and thirds!

oh yes Spinster, seconds, thirds or more this is something that is denied the genration of children at school now. Id always go back for curry, or choc pud n choc custard.

Now you are talking Juju...Choccy pudding and choccy sauce is my all time number 1.Closely followed by cherry shortbread...I too hated the semlina/rice/tapioca.It was always a little cold and used to stick to the plate.Yuk.

My schools trifles were great, except you had to drink it almost. Served in bowls that had stood on the hot serving counter whilst you had the main, warm bowls that melted the jelly!

Can anyone recall what we all called sticky ice buns, i get told off for saying it, so i will wait and see if everyone called them that or if it was just me.

It was so boring that WM put it out of its misery.

Ha ha! now that's funny, even though it is mean! But it wasn't boring actually. It was all about how our mums and yesteryear's dinner ladies made us clear our plates and that's why we eat so much nowadays, cos we feel we have to clear our plates, even though we're full up. Just a thought. Arsewipe!

Lewesianne, i am so pleased that you think the same as me. it all boils down to the post war thing of not wasting food and our parents and dinner ladies felt that we should all be brought up the same way. Sod the healthy eating, sod the fact that you couldnt shovel another thing down your little throat you still had to eat it all, or no pudding.
Would guess that Bumface is way to young to understand and on those grounds we should forgive his lack of understanding and direct rudness.
