Livin' High On The Hog

As far as eating is concerned and at a reasonable price. I've mentioned here before that we eat at the hospital cafeteria a lot. There are several reasons for that. One is, we belong to an organization named Senior Circle. Belonging to that, we get discounts at different businesses and the hospital cafeteria is one of them. We live right down the highway from the hospital and pass there going to tend the cattle or to many other errands, so it's handy. Recently they brought in a real live chef. Trained with white uniform right down to the tall chef's white hat. Little by little they got rid of all the girls we had come to know so well and hired new ones, but fewer employees. The menu changed into something we old potato and gravy people didn't recognize. Yesterday we saw something that looked good, but we had no idea what it was. It was Chicken Cordon Blue and it was very good. I used to never touch shrimp. One day he served Coconut Shrimp and it was so good it made a believer out of me. He put mushrooms in things I would have never thought of adding them to. In fact I have just started eating mushrooms in the last few years, because all I ever knew was the toadstools that grow around here and I didn't want to eat anything a toad had been sitting on. Yes John and I are dining at it's finest now.

See how country I am? I didn't even know how to spell Bleu. I should be ashamed my grandson's fiancée graduated from the Cardon Bleu school and is a chef.

If it is reasonable and good I don't really care if it is hospital or anywhere, as long as it is good, that is all that matters.

As long as it's good (and cheap), I don't care where I eat. Cliff and I ate with a friend recently at a senior center, though, and the food was cold and not that good.

How handy for you! Decent food is hard to come by now - it's a bonus that you get a discount!

Sounds good to me. I actually think the hospital food is better than some of those fast food places.

Sounds like a Win Win situation to me. I was in Cuba when someone introduced me to coconut shrimp and Chicken, Loved both of them...

Sounds good to me, eating at the hospital, as long as you do not have to stay...

Our hospital café serves great food too. Sounds like you're enjoying yourself there. That is great.

I won't eat at our local hospital because my nephew worked in the kitchen for his community service and let us in on the horror stories. I'm glad yours is so nice and learning to love something new is always a good thing!

My sister LOVES coconut shrimp. Me? I'd prefer the Gulf Shrimp deep fat fried and butterflied to perfection. Yum.

Now you have me drooling. But, like you two, I DO LOVE my meat and potatoes.

I have to tell you that this is the first time I have ever heard of good hospital food. That is awesome.

We continue to learn. I was a meat and potatos kid but today, I'll try almost anything once (except asparagus and liver....and toadstools).
