mmmmm.....this sausage looks like it's made of the parts the mechanical meat separator turned it's nose up at.*yuck*
The dessert looks like an upside-down horseshoe...here in the States we consider a horseshoe a sign of good luck...as long as the shoe's ends point up so "all the luck doesn't spill out", which is what happened here.
"recommended" by whom?Susan
The sausage didn't look too bad till it was cut into. The lesson here is either swallow it whole or close your eyes. I'd love to see a nutritional analysis of this food. It looks like any nutrients it might once have had have been frozen, boiled and then stomped out of it. Hope you get more tasty stuff brought in.
LOL. Whoever recommended that to you is a *definite* plant. Nice touch, the soft-focus edge on the "sausage" close-up. I agree with the luck-leaking-out-of-the-horseshoe comment. Did it taste sort of crunchy and strangely full of iron? (If so it's probably the nearest you'll get to something actually rich in nutrients while you're there.)
Do you ever dream that you're drowning in custard? Or soup, for that matter? Even Oliver Twist would have passed on seconds of that lot. Was there any meat in those sausages?
Oh god, you've been there way too long. Listen... the soup DOESN'T look OK. Honestly. Help. I think you are going over to the Other Side. Will send reinforcements immediately. Oh damn. Cant. Postal strike. x
Have you thought of telling the hospital that you've decided to be different religions different days?You could try a kosher meal one day and a halal meal another.I''m not saying that there will be much improvement, but it will be different.I wonder how long the Minister responsible for the Health Service would survive if forced to eat hospital food for any length of time.
I hate to admit it but that sausage looks quite tasty. But then again, I am that rare person who likes cheap sausages (Asda frozen ones, 99p for 20). The kind that are mostly bread, with just a smidgen of meat, finely ground to hide it's nauseating origins.
Bless your parents and their valiant visiting your bedside with salmon bagel end other treats. Wishing you well - I will remember your birthday! Greetings from Styria! Barbara
Don't worry, Julie. We all have guilty secrets,Thank you, Barbara.
I see your missing custard (from a previous pudding)turned up today.I bought some sausages that look just like them. Got them from morrisons, their own brand, economy range. even my neighbours dog wouldn't eat them. Put them out in the garden for the seagulls, they are still there two days later... :-)
Do they *ever* server a dessert that isn't swimming in watery custard? I'm just wondering.
I've been reading your old entries- not too many at one sitting as I want to savor them (puns, puns...)! In any case I am niave I suppose in my surprise that any living human being would criticize you for making fun with this food that you are served. I wouldn't eat any of it. I would not, could not on a train- would not could not in the rain. I would not eat it in a box. I would not eat it with a fox.Period. End of story. Let's be realistic; if you're not starving then there is no way in Hell this food could be appreciated or consumed.I'd like to line up a few people who are hungry and learn just how many would gag on this stuff. I bet more than a few would.
Hi Elizabeth... They do serve desserts without watery custard, but you wouldn't want to eat it. Not unless you reallylike Muller Light yogurts or manky ice cream!
Horseshoe was right on the button for the pudding. I thought horseshoe crab (in fact a relation of the spider family). That would be right up there with all the other critters you mentioned a while ago infesting NHS establishments, apart from the fact it lives in the sea, but with custard? An interesting pairing.
I love my food, but there is nothing on god's earth that would make me eat today's meal.Are you getting better? How much longer do you think you'll be enjoying sausage a la plastic veges et swamp jus?
Ah, you are missing the mentioned of the cauliflower surprise! My Mum always put the things I didn't like hidden under something! I can spot a hidden shocker from a mile off! I hope the saved the poor pudding? What was it?Damian
The pudding was Horseshoe treacle roly poly with a watery custard drenching.
Yum! At least this time the custard was the right colour! Unlike the other night which could glow in the dark! Surely, someone in the NHS has shares in a custard business! They must do well!Damian
It's not a horseshoe - it's a toilet seat!
