When I was little I brought my lunch to school. Always homemade in a brown paper lunch bag.
I always had a sandwich, usually corn beef or pastrami never peanut butter or tuna fish or anything like that. Always something from a deli. Corn beef on rye with mustard Or lean pastrami on rye. And they were big sandwiches piled high with meat.
I always had a fruit. An orange, an apple sometimes grapes or cherries.
I always had a cakey comestible. Sometimes store bought like hostess or cookies but usually homemade like cake or brownies or cookies
I always had a drink and this is where I was so cool No juice boxes (did they have juice boxes back then) but always a can of soda Cream or Black Cherry but never Coke or Pepsi
As I hit Junior High and High School I started to buy lunch because no cool kid had mommy make her lunch.
I look back and realize I was never the cool kid and I wish I had taken my mom’s lunches longer
Also how the hell did she have time to make a homemade lunch for 3 kids every day
