Doctoring Hospital Food

So Mom’s been in Harrison County Hospital, and I’ve been having lunch in the cafeteria — getting a plate and taking it back to her room to eat, rather.

The food is pretty darn good, actually. Today, they had the best meatloaf I ever put in my mouth. But, as pastor Lori says, “Parmesan cheese makes everything better.”doctoring hospital foodSo this is my meatloaf and “Kyoto vegetables” (whatever that means) with Parmesan cheese on.

Another day, they had chopped chicken and I put barbeque sauce on it. They have a wide variety of condiments and seasonings (lemon juice, mayonnaise, salt-free seasoning) that a creative foodist could use to tweak the offerings, if necessary.

But, as I say, the food is pretty darn good to begin with, so one might not want to. Except, of course, for adding Parmesan cheese.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Put one of your characters in the hospital. I mean write about the character being in the hospital.

    How did I miss this post?

    You might know that there is a real-chef kitchen in one of our local hospitals, where anyone can, of course, come to dine, and I think it’s fueled by the Sullivan cooking school.

      Oh, YUM! I don’t know who made that meatloaf, but they should get a medal.
