Hooray for Mrs TM! Juicy-looking alternative lunch.Any more news re the leg/the great escape?
Yum. Getting hungry now for my own lunch. What's with the potato in the braised liver etc. plus mash on the side? Do they want to glue your jaws together so you can't complain?Enjoy your day with Mrs TM and good food!
LOL. Saw those prawns and thought, someone's been to M&S, even before scrolling down to the yoghurt.The liver & bacon protein content is disgraceful. So, that's an infinitesimal amount of grey liver accompanied one lump of bacon, with potatoes, with side dish of potatoes. Super.Aren't you grateful you have Mrs TM to rescue your digestion and sanity?
Do you know where they source the liver? I only ask as given it's a hospital there may be a handy local source...
Oh CHef Andy! How could you! It was gross enough looking at it without thinking THAT!! LOL!! Thank goodness for Mrs TM! Nutrition AND taste!! YUM!!! Actually, I have some prawns in the freezer which need eating. Thai green curry is sounding good! Enjoy the lunch Mrs TM brought. Hope she has stocked you up for the rest of the week with edible goodies.
Yep, that was my first comment when I saw the liver and bacon - where/who exactly does the liver come from? Icky. Mrs TM's lunch looks great - hope you have some quality time together today.
Derr.. the liver was in the pudding. The contrast between the Good Food and the Crap Food is unbelievable!
Three cheers for Ms TM! The shrimps look nice and of course also the salmon bagel! I'd have opted for another yoghurt, a plain white natural one, but that's just me, as I do not like vanilla. Wishing you well from Styria! Barbara

TM ..... If you are bored to tears and get fed up with Dickinson et al .... try this very addictive game...http://apps.facebook.com/inthemafia/I'll even help you if you join my 'family' but be warned it's very addictive and saps the time like there's no tomorrow.
That grey liver shoe leather stuff looks quite revolting - like the worst kind of 1950s school meal. And liver is OK! When you get home, ask Mrs TM to fry a few onions, literally flash fry the liver then add a bit of balsamic vinegar and (wait for it!) a few sliced strawberries and some double cream. Trust me, it's wonderful! How about for your welcome home meal?
I'm not a great fan of liver but that was the best choice on the menu. I do think the quantity of protein is pathetically minuscule. I don't believe for one moment that the food factory is fulfilling its specifications as laid down in its contract with the hospital trust. The samples the managers get to try when the company is tendering for the contract must be etirely different to the production line muck.
You know, I look at these culinary accidents every day and think, HOW DARE the NHS tell us how to live, what to eat and drink, that we're all too fat and lazy, etc., when they serve stodge, with stodge on the side, followed by stodge and custard. Grrr.
No wonder i left hospital weighing 2 stone less than when I entered it.
I love baked beans but wouldn't want them with a casserole - equally, the casserole already has potato in it so if there was a sufficient portion you wouldn't need a side of potato. The meat content is pathetic. I definitely think that that's below spec. Surely they have a team of NHS managers who monitor the food to check that it meets spec - obviously these managers come at the cost of a few nurses and doctors - but it's only a hospital, they aren't really needed.
Phil I'm so pleased you mentioned the baked beans. Because they were worrying me too.What tastebudless person would think of teaming liver and bacon sludge with baked beans?Still at least the protein in the beans made up for the lack of protein in the 'meat'.
I'm so glad Mrs TM came up trumps today.
I am absolutely amazed that each and every meal comes with some dessert comprised of a baked good in sauce/pudding- whatever the Hell it is! I can't understand what they serve. It is awful and anyone would know it is awful and I haven't been at your blog long enough to get over it yet!I can't even think of one thing to say that might cheer you!Ugh!
theres only one lunch... A M&S lunch mmmmmmm hope you enjoyed it
Who would have thought they could actually get WORSE!? (The alternative makes my mouth water just looking at it...)
Quite honestly it looks as though you're being fed wartime rations. If you got together a plate of what the week's rations were in the 1940s you'd be hard pressed to see much change.Their excuse would be that wartime rations never did anyone any harm but what they forget is the fact that you're on your own, in pain, and needing protein to mend - because medicine has advanced in nearly seventy years and it's clear what works best. This really is abysmal, TM. Thank God Mrs TM has come up trumps again and I'm so glad you've had her company and support today. Plus an M&S yoghurt - heaven. That brand is gorrrrjusssss. I particularly like the lemon curd one ..
Christ on a bike, that has got to rank amongst the worst yet. I think I'd prefer to eat my own liver.
