Ham sandwiches, Frito pie, Ding Dongs and the softest scoops of mashed potatoes. No matter if you brought your own lunch or ate from school cafeteria, the back to school season brings waves of food memories.

That's why, for our latest episode of "I Love You So Much: The Austin360 Podcast," we asked more than a dozen Austinites about what they remembered about school lunch, from square pizza and smiley-faced potatoes to one mom's "love bite" that she took out of each sandwich. You can hear these sweet stories here or in your favorite podcast app.

“I Love You So Much: The Austin360 Podcast" is sponsored by Copenhagen Furniture. You can find more episodes of the podcast at austin360.com/loveaustin360.
