PBnJ? Ham and Swiss?!
Off to the GULag with you, comrade.
Wow. When I was a kid growing up in the 70s, in SoCal, I brought my lunch with me to school, in my oh-so-cool Six Million Dollar Man lunchbox.
Sometimes bologna and cheese, PBnJ, occasionally liverwurst with cheese (yeah, I liked liverwurst, and I still do; I was a weird kid, I guess), usually a small bag of chips, a banana, and a little can of Welch’s grape juice or apple juice, or sometimes I’d buy a milk.
From time to time, I’d buy lunch at the cafeteria as well. Tostadas, burritos, tacos, mac and cheese.....
Why, it’s a miracle I’m still alive, after eating all that most “unhealthy” food in my youth. /s
We didn’t have school lunches in the 50’s. We walked home for lunch. Now and then we got a lunch packed, or for a very special treat, maybe once a month we were give 50 cents for a hamburger and a milk shake at the local ice cream shop. I lived about 8 blocks from school and had to cross a fairly main road with the safety patrol.
