I loved the chocolate pudding & custard as well as the coconut square with jam & custard. Can remember the puddings more than the dinners :P

Was it cornflour & strawberry jam that all the kids twirled the jam around to make the cornflour pink ?

I lived across the street from my first school & I always took the school dinners.  I even went up for seconds for the puddings.I think I must have been a sadist  ???

I am not a fussy eater, but the school meals at Strandtown and Sullivan Upper were vile.

I worked in the Mission Manufacturing at Castlereagh, and they had gourmet meals.

The meals in SHORTS were also very good.

The entree was usually the pitts, but oh for a dish of ginger cake and hot custard, yumm!

Bloom. Quit yer [censored] shoutin.

I absolutely lived School Dinners at Cregagh Primary. Always had seconds and an extra bottle of milk. Guess that's why I grew into a Big Strong Man 8) Coats

And Bloom. You have eaten worse ;D

Jemmy I am with you on this one.. when I nursed back home we brought the patients dinners out at that time and we used to fight over the extra  ginger cake and custard.
