Blue Boar Cafeteria Rainbow Salad

While searching for something else, I found this:

Blue Boar Cafeteria Rainbow Congeal Salad from The Bryan Times - May 18, 1994 

2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 tablespoons margarine, melted
1 (3-oz) box strawberry gelatin
1 (3-oz) box lime gelatin
1 (3-oz) box lemon gelatin
1/2 cup peaches, drained & diced
1 cup peach juice, heated
2 (3-oz) packages cream cheese, softened to room temperature
1 cup milk

Combine graham cracker crumbs and melted margarine. Line an 8-by-8 square dish
with the graham cracker crumbs. Press crumbs down firmly. Set aside. Prepare
strawberry gelatine and lime gelatin according to directions on package and 
refrigerate in separate pans. Drain peaches, reserving juice. Heat peach juice.
Pour lemon gelatin into peach juice, stirring to dissolve gelatin. Set aside.
Blend cream cheese and milk. Combine cream cheese mixture with hot peach juice 
mixture and stir to blend well. Set aside to cool until mixture begins to thicken.
While mixture is cooling, dice peaches and cube gelatins. Gently fold strawberry
and lime gelatins into cream cheese mixture. Pour gelatin mixture over graham
cracker crumbs. Chill to firm. Cut into squares. Makes 4 servings.

Pizza Burgers

Hello Phaedrus,

I'm looking again for another recipe, this time from when I was in High School in the early to mid 1970's. 
At the time I had gone to this school they had students grades 7-12. Now it is 9-12 because of the major 
increase of kids.

This time the recipe is called Pizza Burgers. I did and have looked at the ones listed on your site and 
many others but they are not made the same way. I remember the fillings being inside the burger and placed 
on the bun. It looked like a regular hamburger patty. I know it was not crumbled hamburger. 

I know we are not supposed to ask for more then one recipe in one email?
But this is another one at the same school. If you can't get this one it's ok. 

It is what they call a malt. It came out of a machine and it came in sort of a whitish clear plastic cup/glass, 
the cost for the chocolate malt was $.15 It had a salty taste from what I remember. Wendy's sells the Frosty 
like it but it's not quite the same taste.

Thank you very much,

Hi Sue,

I cannot find any recipes at all that are from East High School In Madison, WI. I did find pizza burger recipes on a Wisconsin TV station website. See:

Pizza Burgers

Pizza Burger Patties

As for the “malt”, this sounds like it was probably a commercial mix that the school bought pre-mixed. Most fast food places use this kind of mix rather than making malts and shakes themselves. You put the mix into the machine, and the machine freezes it as needed. Not much hope of finding a home recipe for a commercial mix like that.


Peanut Butter Sandwich

Hello Phaedrus,

I looking for another recipe it was from when I was in grade school in the middle to the late 60's. 
The lunchroom served peanut butter sandwiches that were to die for. They were light brown/tan in 
color and sort of sweet. They served these when the kids got hot lunch and if they had extras they 
would ask who would want one (the sandwiches were cut in half) even if we took sack lunch we got 
one if we wanted one. My hand went up 100% of the time. ;-) One time I asked if I could have the 
recipe and they said no. :-(

This is the name and address of the school.

Lapham Elementary School
1045 E. Dayton Street
Madison, WI. 53703

Thank you very much,

Hi Sue,

Sorry, I had no success finding a peanut butter sandwich recipe from Lapham Elementary School in Madison, WI. Have you tried a peanut butter & honey mixture?


I have and it isn't quite the same. 
Thank you


But did you add some butter?

School Lunchroom Peanut Butter Sandwich

For 2 sandwiches:
2 large spoonfuls creamy peanut butter
2 tablespoons butter 
honey to taste

Mix all ingredients. Add honey to taste and use white bread.

On Wednesday, October 15, 2014 6:46 PM you received a request from Lois for a peanut butter sandwich.
Your reply was that she try adding honey and she said that she had tried that and it wasn't the same.
Many decades ago my grandmother would add Roger's Syrup to peanut butter to make it last longer as 
she had 15 children and peanut butter was a treat.  I imagine that the mixture would be the same as 
your recipe for honey except that you use Roger`s Syrup instead.I hope this is helpful to both you and lois.  
I know it was a great treat for me whenever we got to have it! 

Hi Candy,

Well, remember, Lois had these peanut butter sandwiches in her school lunchroom at Lapham Elementary School in Madison, Wisconsin in the 1960s. Best I can determine, Rogers Syrup, which is a golden syrup in the British style, is a Canadian product that is difficult to find in the U.S. I see Lyle’s Golden Syrup in our local stores now, so Rogers Golden Syrup might be available some places, but it doesn’t seem likely that an imported syrup would have been used in a U.S. school in the 1960s. Perhaps they used Karo Syrup, which has been pervasive in the U.S. for many years.
