In case I haven’t mentioned this in a while, I love my brother. Joe was recently back in the hospital with an infection for a brief stay, and took the time to mail me the day’s menu, as a nod to our memories of the marvelous food we had back when we were occupying nearby hospital rooms post transplant. He highlighted one of the dinner choices: “290: Homemade Salisbury Steak.” It’s homemade! How can you beat this?!?
Alarmingly, it is the only item on the entire menu that is, apparently, homemade. The rest must be shipped in from a factory – an idea that scares me a little for items like “132: Garden Quiche” and “956: Cheese Omelet.”
Ah, hospital food.
