    It looks considerably better than the wrap!

    That's true. I was expecting slightly more than one scoopful of stir fry though. I had to have 2 desserts to make up for that measly portion.

    Love the tiny cubes of reformed chicken breast there also correct me if I'm wrong but that looks like it has zero flavour.

    I'm another lucky one who has a decent cooked meal for free every day. Steak & kidney pie with parsley mash and braised veg today

    Honestly, when I looked at that I thought the cubes were feta or halloumi

    We're in austerity! We can't have salad in our wraps or noodles in our stir fry here.

    Friday is normally OK as it's fish and chips day and I'm hoping I can compare.

    I take it you don't have many pupils eating school dinners then? That so called "stir-fry" looks foul.

    Yeah we get a fair few. The stir fry was alright, it was the potatoes that rescued this meal as they were quite herby.

    That looks pretty poor. The food here is pretty good. Was shepherds pie, veg and potatoes, apple crumble and custard for lunch. Tea is DIY chicken fajitas, tempted to stay for that mmm!

    Our dinners are pretty poor - I don't eat the hot food except on INSET days when it's all they provide, but other staff attest to its crapness. On INSET days we get a very oily lasagne with some rather dry potatoes. Some cake and custard if we're lucky!

    Usually I have a wrap or baguette, the choices normally being (in order of increasing rarity): cheese, ham, cheese and ham, cheese salad, egg salad, BLT (seen once).
