    Food here is very good. I could have free lunches in different boarding houses every day of the week... but I'd have to sit with the boys and talk to them. I used to go to a couple a week, but it became a tie one term when I had lots to do over lunchtimes so I let it slip.

    We can buy home made soup, and bought in sandwiches at cost in the staff common room. Really good quality (most of the time, sometimes a bit heavy handed with the salt) and enough to keep me going on the long days here.

    Yeah, food here isn't too bad really, could be much much worse. I live on site and their dinners in the evening which are more catered for the boarders also can be decent.

    The food here is unimpressive in my opinion - I don't eat it. Ingredients are far too cheap, flavours too weak etc...

    My last school had amazing food though. Mmmm. That was outsourced but it was worth every penny.

    School diners here aren't to bad they are big on international food so we get to try all sorts. Only problem is dinner ladies used to serving tiny primary kids seem to believe we all eat that sized portion!

    Most of us are doing a sponsored weight loss challenge for charity atm so no school dinners and the staff room looks like a buffet for rabbits -.-

    Also thank God support staff get to go in immediately at 12; the noise of junior school children would drive me through several walls.

    Yeah I make sure I get in early too, not for seating as we have a staff room but to avoid the stream of kids ambling around the canteen not looking where they're going with full plates of food in their hands!

    Wednesday here is usually 'roast dinner' day, so today is gammon or a chicken breast with tagliatelle. I will have the former.

    One issue I've been at loggerheads with to the catering committee is over desserts and more specifically the use of custard; it's boring and outdated but apparently the kids love it which they clearly don't as when I leave I often see the young ones come in with a dry pudding (alongside often a plate of just dry pasta and some bread, woof). Also milk in the common room is water.

    I've been away for the last 3 1/2 weeks but the school seems to have a new evening chef in as well, had an enchilada (he said it was a burrito but I know my Mexican) last night which wasn't too bad.

    Check out my latest "portion" of wedges. That's a 500ml bottle of water for scale NOT a 1L bottle.
