The Adventures of Tom Chin Continued…

Whats a stay at a hospital without any food pics?  I don’t know if this is weird but I am a big fan of airplane food.  There is something about a complete meal all served in a neat little tray, maybe that’s why I love bento boxes so much. So hospital food was just like airplane food, but you have options!

Everyday we are asked by “room service” if we wanted to place an order with them on their iPad or through the TV.  There were so many options it literally would take me half an hour to select.  One day I forgot to order because we had friends come over and they delivered us a standard meal for the day.  How nice, they don’t want their patients to starve.

Below is most of what we ordered!

My First meal at the Hospital was around Lunch Time. It was a Fancy BLT served on a Foccacia with Sweet Potato sides.

My first night at the hospital, i decided to get dinner a little too late the cafeteria was closed. All they had been the fancy rotating vending machine with salad and sandwiches. I was hastily selecting and selected the chicken salad… i hate chicken salad. so in the end i thought to myself i just bought a $6 egg sandwich. wth. I asked the nurses if they wanted the chicken sammie. I hate to waste food.

Breakfast in the Hospital Cafeteria ends around 10 am, so luck me I got the last of everything. Apparently they serve per slice, but since it was the transition of Breakfast to lunch they gave me the whole shebang.
