Shakespeare and Sprouts

Talk about non-Bongo stuff. BUT KEEP IT CLEAN....there are children watching. Smut, filth, and anything offensive will not be tolerated and removed immediately.

Two things school put me off for many years, but which I now quite enjoy.

Anyone else have such experiences?

Girls, I thought they were horrible, then they turned into women,
Still not sure I'm over it, therapy is helping, but.

Bread & butter pudding- I'd never had it and thought it was somebody's old toast!

Semolina, loathed it at school, but now rather like it, but a totally different texture to what was from the school days!

Wasn't it tapioca that was frogspawn, semolina is more like readimix concrete :D

I found most school meals ok but boiled cabbage and their sliced beef (from our old friend the elastic cow) you had to fold about 15 times to make it stay on the fork were a particularly bad memory.
