finally broke down and tried one of the f'd up dishes at the chow hall...beef porcupines. google it. it's a dish for kids containing hamburger meat and rice. when cooked, the rice sticks out the sides, making the ball o' meat look like a porcupine. kids love that. unfortunately, i'm not a kid. i'm an adult. unfortunately, there were no other options today...i could've done PB&J, but the bread's been especially bad lately--falls apart as a try to apply the PB. after weeks of eating either PB&J or tuna sandwiches, I needed some variety. porcupines provided that variety. here it is accompanied by squash casserole...it's the squash covered in orange and white stuff. the porcupine is covered in a sauce that reminds me of spaghetti-o broth....and that's what this tasted like, spaghetti-o's with rice replacing the noodles. the squash casserole did have a mushy-squash and white flavor. i can't describe it...somewhat creamy, somewhat chunky.
about 15 minutes after the meal, the porcupine got angry...in my stomach.
i've resisted the porcupines for 5 months...it's a slippery slope. porcupines lead to frozen pizza pucks which lead to thousand-island-shrimp salad, which leads salisbury steak, and ultimately...to corn dogs for breakfast.
32 days to go.
