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.
