I chose from the "liquid diet" portion of the menu for my first food after being situated in my room: jello, iced tea and grape juice. The juice was too sweet so after the first taste, I did not finish it. The jello was ... well, jello. I was just happy to have something to eat after having fasted for 20+ hours.
I knew that I wanted my dinner meal to be something easy to eat: nothing that needed a knife, nothing that required too much chewing, nothing that needed what I perceived to be a lot of internal breaking down. I chose meatloaf, mashed potatoes and gravy, and chocolate pudding. Sadly, none of this tasted "good." I can't say it was bad or that there was anything wrong with it. Just that my taste buds were "off," and I simply was not interested in eating it. Not even the chocolate pudding. I nibbled on the meal, then set it aside with maybe only a quarter of it eaten.
(I managed to barf up what little was inside me. That surprised me since I seldom throw up.)
One last chance for someone else to make me a meal: For breakfast I chose oatmeal, a banana, bran muffin, and skim milk. I was hoping the muffin would be commercially wrapped in plastic so I could take it home. It was not. It was dry and not very flavorful. The banana did not taste like a banana, possibly because of screwed up taste buds so I only ate half of it. I did like the oatmeal sprinkled with sweetener.
Overall, the food on this overnight "vacation" was a real disappointment. It's not that I think it was poorly made, but I guess my taste was just off.
Once home, J. fixed me a lunch: He heated up a slice of leftover Little Caesar's Pizza and brought a glass of water to me.
