Fish square on bun, tartar sauce, buttered corn, Jell-O cubes. Bread, butter, milk.
Welcome to school lunch, any Friday in 1963.
Menus, published every week in the Shelbyville, Illinois, newspaper, gave a heads up on what was for lunch at the school cafeteria. Teachers would know when to ditch the lunch line. Children, if they were able to read a newspaper, would know when to bring a sack lunch from home.
My brother and I would read menus as if divining the future for a particular week.
