My mom had a white Corningware baking dish with little blue flowers, Lisa Wiffle!  And I'M old enough to remember that there were MiGs and B-52 bombers over Vietnam on THE HUNTLEY-BRINKLEY REPORT. ("Good night, Chet." "Good night, David.  And good night for NBC News.")

A lunch Mother is a mom that came in at lunch time (cause the teacher has lunch hour) and then went to recess with us.

I moved around a lot as a kid but at times in elementary and junior high school I did go home for lunch. I was at home for lunch when I learned JFK had been shot. We had to go back to school but were let out the first period after lunch when we learned he had died. During my last two years of high school, we were not allowed to leave campus but were served the best rolls ever made in the cafeteria :)

so did my boys..good thing since I worked and by then cafeteria was standard in grade schools.....most likely even before that...we got it in Jr high and of course high school and it was mostly done in the schools then too...that was when I learned that chili and cinnamon rolls go well together...well not quite together first chili then cinnamon roll for after...yu had to be fast though as only a certain number of the rolls were made.... ...

i had to stay at school for lunch. but i remember the cafeteria food like it was yesterday. my favorite day was pizza. and the other great thing was ice cream between two waffle crackers. but everything was made by the cafeteria ladies, and by today's standards it was completely homemade. unbelievable!
