Paige: Monday it was meatballs in red sauce. Tuesday it was meatballs in brown sauce. Yesterday it was meatballs in black sauce. This cafeteria does have a refrigerator, right?
Lunch lady: Care for a meatball in fuzzy green sauce?
May I be the first to say, “Ew!”
Appears that the cafeteria makes too many meatballs… or there isn’t much demand for them…
Veggie Chia balls?
And they used to tease me about re-using my brown paper bag.
What’s funny is, our middle school just put in a request for new walk-in refrigerators because their current ones are over 50 years old and barely kept functioning with duct tape.
School board, of course, thought they could do without.
This would be huge scandle in local politics.
I remember the elementary school I went to served cutlets on Monday, hamburger patties on Tuesday, meatballs on Wednesday, and chili on Thursday. Interesting pattern, I think. Of course fish was served every Friday.
The lunch lady is the keeper of the public ptomaine.
(old mash joke)
I buy a big bag of frozen Italian style meatballs and throw into everything, spaghetti, soup, meatballs subs, macaroni and cheese. Quick and easy!
twypsi I never thought of meatballs in macaroni and cheese. I think schools make sure there are no left overs and serve something different from a planned menu. I know this is a comic strip suppose to be funny but this isn’t.
Oh and we use ground turkey including turkey for meat balls.
Maybe school cafeterias are where old army cooks fade away.
I always liked our cafeteria food in public and private school. Our Catholic school served REALLY good meals wlhen I went. there. When I was a volunteer mom in the same Catholic grade school cafeteria, a lot had changed but the meals were still good.
