Day three — Hospital food

    Newer Older

    On the lighter side: One hilarious event during our hopital stay -- pulverized foods molded to look like thier real counterparts -- beef slices and peas. Only in this case, the peas were in actuality pureed broccoli spears.

      The meal came when she still wasn't tolerating food too well, so she did not partake. I was just facinated with the thing. One of her doctors came to see her at about 4 in the morning the day after the tray was (food service didn't take it back until breakfast came), and after we'd discussed her condition and I had relaxed and our conversation turned, I grabbed the tray and said, "you gotta see this," to the doctor. We spent another few minutes discussing memories of the tricks she used to get her children to eat, and my memories of my grandmother shredding up everying, putting it in Jell-O and molding it into shapes just to keep us interested.

      This actually doesn't turn me off. I would eat this. And pureed broccolli shaped like peas? That's brilliant!

      That's actually kind of cool. I wouldn't want to eat it myself, but maybe for a baby. They should sell stuff like this in stores instead of just pureed foods in cans.

      Hi, I've used the photo (with credits) twice in my blog, writing about the need for less additives in food.

      that is freakishly hideous. The lighting and shadows in the food and on the plate make this picture look really 3 dimensional. Well done! :)
