  1. Okay, you got me--I had to look up spotted dick since I had no clue what it was. Very different from "pudding" here in the US. I've never been much of a fan of pudding but I do like anything chocolate so I suppose chocolate pudding was my favorite.

    School pudding? I hated pudding as a kid because Mom always seemed to make tapioca and I could not abide by those little eyes in it. Still can't. Now, the pudding I really like is lemon meringue pie pudding. Mmmm. Thanks for the tutorial and chance to win.

  55. When I was in elementary school in Wichita, Kansas back in the 50s there was no hot lunch at school. Many kids went home for lunch & the rest brought their own lunch in a lunch pail. My mother made tapioca & other puddings sometimes (I have never heard of Spotted Dick-will have to look that up). I think tapioca may have been my favorite.

  71. I don't think we had pudding in school. I rarely ate school lunch, though. I liked it when my mom made pudding and it had that "skin" that I would peel off and eat. I think chocolate is my favorite with bananas. Thanks! tljeo at yahoo dot com
