Carrot Mash Soup, I seem to remember you had it before. It lacked ginger, didn't it?Entree: Broccoli, bit of potato mash, and a kind of stew with an occasional pea and carrot cube and some flakes of minced meat? was it hot and spicy? maybe there is a piece of beetroot in it as well?dessert: two thirds of a doughnut (why not a whole one?) Greetings from Styria! BarbaraP.S. I second Sooz, keep on raising this issue on behalf of everybody, dear TM Baron Femur!
I sampled that doughnut. it was whole, to be fair.
I name this soup 'Mavis'. God bless her and any who dare drink her. Looks like a Mavis to me anyway.
Traction Man,You are doing a wonderful job of keeping your spirits up and being humourous about a dreadful situation but I think you are raising very important issues . Check out our debate about hospital food here in Canada . I think you may find it interesting (CBC Radio )http://www.cbc.ca/soundslikecanada/features6.htmlMoira
The stew really does look ... awful.Hope the doughnut was good.
It wasn't... the doughnut, I mean.
Look's very interesting , I think some kind of nuclear gear is needed when attempting to consume this soup, that goes for the rest of the meal as well.
I'd say: tomatoe?
Yeuch And on that point its time for dinner or a snack
Could be Oxtail ?? the Potato actually looks O.K. ( I did say OK ) but the rest id dire hope you got a bagel today.

That stew looks god awful!!
It's described on the menu as Lamb Pie - lean mincedlamb, onions, carrots and peas topped with a shortcrust pastry.
Both your meals today look truly horrible. I feel very sorry for you. Possibly one could put up with food like this for two or three days but day after day.... a nightmare.
are they trying to poison patients and kill them off to relieve a bed shortage in that hospital you are in? That just looks terrible, I do hope you make a really speedy recovery so you can get some decent food, i have been showing my son your food every night, and surprise, surpirsie, he has stopped complaining about my cooking!
Sorry, I should not laugh TM, though that plate of brownish stuff looks absolutely revolting, the scary thing is, the brown stuff has many shades of brown in it, how did that happen.Bagel and cream cheese and salmon looks lovely, thank goodness for backup.
@Bonnie - thank goodness at least some good has come of this. Your son is a smart boy.
Jesus christ. How is that Pie? It looks like stew. At least there are more than 3 flakes of protein in this. Keep up your strength man!
Oooh I thought you had one of my favourites there. Italian mince. Mince with a tin of tomatoes thrown in it actually. Where's the pastry hiding then? Are they trying to soak it in gravy to make it chewable. Yuk
Mmmmm, soup , was it drained residue from a rusting petrol tank. Dinner, Christmas is coming, save all your broccolli from now till Christmas week and you can entertain yourself by building a nice Christmas tree. Save your custard as well , it can be used to papier mache some nice decorations.Save all your pastry crusts to make a nativity scene.All the sinister looking white sauce should be saved as well, this will act as plaster of Paris and if put in a bed pan you can build your tree from it, as a stake , just use Aaah sticks bound together with custard as glue.Stick the carrots on the bunches of broccolli to make them look like candles.String the peas like beads and drape lengths of it like tinsel over your tree.I am sure all of you can come up with even more decorative items from the food served.Ness ..xx
I guess the soup was tomato. But the main meal just about makes me cry. On the other hand, I hope it will make everyone who sees this stuff go vegetarian and save a whole lot of animals. I would have eaten part of the doughnut to console myself and then have a look at what can be saved from the dinner. Ah yes, the soup is ok. And the mash looks good, broccoli a bit tired but still somewhat green. Just need to squint my right eye not to see the sauce, again called "pie". Decidedly, I am right in being deeply suspicious of pies in general. Courage, mon baron!
you poor dear , i dont know what the entree was before someone ate it and regurgetated it back on to that plate , but if i was you , i would sue for inhumane treatment of a invalid .i wish i could share the wonderful seafood platter i had for dinner with you .any chance you can call out for take away?rhonda , usa
The soup looks like post-operative sluice. The main meal looks like whatever it flowed out of. The dessert looks like a cholesterol-filled aorta.And to think I am eating as I type this... urg...
See, I think that soup has a more sinister feel than just tomato. Is it maybe minestrone?
That second pic is a plate of WRONG. I wish I could send you some home cooking. Alas it might not be too wonderful coming all the way from Australia!
i stared in horror at what is supposed to be the pie for such a long time, that a face emerged in it...just above the place where the broccoli and mash meet - a dark brown, sewer like gaping mouth, a pea for an eye on the right, a blob of white stuff for the other eye and what appears to be a chunk of carrot forming an evil looking mole on the left of that cavernous mouth. Poor Mr TM...don't know about you, but after seeing that I need a good lie down. Take care, Mich.
Oh God. That "pie" looks like a heinous combination of vomit and diarrhea (not that I've ever seen that combination but I have a good imagination). Mel
oh my the soup really looks disgusting.i am not joking if i say it looks like human waste. no offense.
I made the mistake of showing my neighbours your blog and now they think they are justified in thinking all English food is crap! Literally. I have been excused because my Grandmother is French; but apparently we all eat cold baked beans and not much else. Expect a contingent of French ladies appearing in the kitchen in a few days with their supplies of herbs to sort out this catastrophe. I think the plan is to try and sort out the kitchen and then bring you here to get you well quickly! We tried to guess the contents of your main meal and were way off beam; nearest we got was something from a tin of pedigree chum (which our dog won't touch). Keep posting. Zoe
Soup: Tomato mixed with mulligatawny and a dash of rust water from the bottom of an old sewage tankEeewwwwwPie: Pie? Wot pie? Pie suggests pastry of some sort, albeit hard enough to shatter teeth without soaking for 10 hours. Unless someone else got it and you ended up with the shredded bits of whatever.EeewwwwwDessert:A section of an anal ring cushionEeewwwww
The first picture - of your soup - my mother said it was a flower pot!
A flower pot would have been more palatable!
Bean Soup!At which the response should be...I lnow it's been soup, I want to know what it is now!I'll get my coat.
Leave by the drain!
The 'lamb pie' reminds me of Google Maps. Zoom out in satalite view and you'll see what I mean.
Moriarty, the drain is leaving from platform two in five minutes.
