I'll have the salmon if you don't fancy it. :-)It looks gorgeous! - I could lick the screen.The other stuff - well, I looked at it and thought ... what is that? Cabbage, potato, corned beef(?), vinaigrette with mustard seeds,...It fills the plate, but looks like there is about 10 grams of protein. That'll keep your strength up - not!Clearly they haven't rumbled you.
Yuk, I can almost smell that soggy cabbage from here.... As for the rest of it, thank heavens you had a back up
It looks as though several dinners collided on the plate. Interesting. I suppose the red spot on the pud is an indication that there might have been some jam around, had the disher-outer felt more generous.
The single red spot on the pudding is disturbing. Is it a sample of that strange red non jam so beloved of catering manuals, or blood. Apart from that the pudding looks quite good. Which is more than you can say about the disaster masquerading as Traditional British Winter Fare in the top picture. Is that a lemon slice to squeeze over the bagel? Nice.
So why didn't they bring soup today? I cannot tell what the main course is supposed to be, it looks like a review of the week. They seem to have run out of peas though; but there is still plenty of potatoes. As for the dessert, it looks once more like a piece of buchtel in vanilla sauce; not to everyman's fancy either, especially day in, day out. Couldn't they bring fresh yogurt instead, or creme brulèe?I'm glad you are now making a habit of having salmon bagels or warm panini delivered to your bedside! I hope your bone and flesh eating bug will get vanquished soon. After all salmon go upstream against many odds, so they are very strong; thus eating salmon reverentially should confer their strength to you and consequently freak those bugs out. You might consider taking the salmon as coat-of-arms for your Baroncy of Femur as Defender of The Patients, what do you think? Best wishes! Barbara
What on earth was it supposed to be? It looks totally inedible in any case. Just as well you had emergency rations today!
What the **** indeed! What I think they call in the navy a 'pot mess' where all ration packs are dumped together in the same pan! My hubs thinks it's everything you didn't eat last week! Either way that is truly disgusting! Hospital and Chef, two words that should never be put together in the same sentence! Enjoy the salmon bagel tho, that looks wonderful.Linda Tenerife x
the VW was UNDINE by the way - Indeed!
Oh my the first dish looks like a mishmash of many things. Some of the things look like someone took a bite out of it before arranging it on the plate. LOL.

"Some of the things look like someone took a bite out of it before arranging it on the plate."The main course looks like someone's already eaten it before arranging it on the plate.
That main course looks like a plate made up of leftovers.Poor you.Thank Christ you had a salmon bagel on standby.On a positive note - it looks better than the brick served up yesterday :(
Good lord...that is a holy mess! Although I'm not keen on the salmon either, being a vegetarian and all that.
It's definitely ookamatoosh - we have it regularly - whatever is left in the fridge goes in, but honestly mine looks much better than that and consists of more than just two types of potato and cabbage and it taste's scrummy. I wouldn't serve it if I had guests though !!

Turner Prize 2010 mate. If it worked for Jackson Pollack, it'll work for you.Somewhere in that kitchen there's a hollow tin robot. They shovel the goo through a hatch into his stomach, press a button and he cacks it onto the plate.His name is Huey.
What on earth is that main course...Predigested?
Kosmos,That is most definitely a plate of Scouse - my Mother-in-law was proficient in the art.
Like all great chefs NHS' catering service knows that an artful presentation adds so much to the overall ambience of a fine meal.Paula
How can they call THAT food?
Do they serve it with a bucket? Hoping so.
Do you think someone from the kitchen took a child fishing with a net, then brought it back, put in the microwave as a science experiment and it mistakenly ended up on your plate - maybe?I bet you're relieved the bagel was on its way!
Easy! that's lardon hot pot. Bits of bacon, slices of potato, with extra potato on the side in case there's not enough potato. (But wait! I saw some mince lurking. Maybe I'm wrong.) That cabbage however ... anyone who went to boarding school will know what that tastes like. Could the red spot on the pudding be a glace cherry? Just to add that little bit of je ne sais quoi?
No one's got that main course right yet... perhaps the problem is that there was none of the two types of meat on the plate that the dish was supposed to contain. It was supposed to be braised liver and bacon hotpot with mashed potato and peas. Fortunately the liver and bacon was missing.
yeah, this is the kind of bland over-cooked food that doesn't deserve to be called vegetarian. Or anyway, there should be less of it on the plate and there ought always to be one third of a plate fresh sprouts and salad - with optional vinaigrette on the side.
omg did you ever see Braindead...that second one looks just like the custard in that film hhahaha!
Dinner is hobo vomit after eating road kill racoon, pudding is expanding foam and puss sauce.Ness..xx
