You will have to excuse these two lonely brownies in the picture . . . these brownies were devoured so quickly last night that I only had two left to photograph! Ha ha! We had such an amazing response to our Lunch Lady Peanut Butter Bars that it got me thinking about all the other yummy desserts we used to have with school lunch.
Fridays were absolutely my favorite day to buy school lunch because it was always nachos with a huge cinnamon roll (now that I think about it, that isn’t a very healthy lunch at all! Ha ha! Thankfully I worked most of it off at recess!). I think that I would have loved being a lunch lady- cooking batch after batch of yummy food and desserts for all the cute kids . . . sounds like a pretty awesome job!
I am sad they don’t make yummy food from scratch anymore, but thankfully the internet has made it possible for those yummy recipes to be found. I came across this recipe at Saltbox House– come to find out, it’s the brownie recipe that has been used at Bonneville Junior High School in Idaho for the past 50 years. If a recipe can stand the test of time, you know it’s a keeper!
