Just floating through and saw the sandwich debate. And it amused me greatly so had to comment. I do not understand how the chicken Mayo ones can be so yummy, but the ham etc is so dry! I used to always choose chicken Mayo, or at a push cheese and pickle for that very reason. I feel like there should be some feedback forms or somewhere cos I always thought it was me being fussy!

Cacoethes 13-05-2021 03:44 PM

Hi Emma!

Definitely not you being fussy!
I've spoken to several patients who say the same thing!

tamobhuuta 13-05-2021 03:48 PM

When I'm feeling fancy I like cheese and caramelised onion but I can't do the onions myself.

Pomegranate 13-05-2021 04:04 PM

Also, fun fact. In the staff canteens, those sandwiches are 3.50! Literally the exact same sandwiches. Which is why staff get ward food put aside, cos it’s free :-p

tamobhuuta 13-05-2021 04:27 PM


Cacoethes 13-05-2021 04:37 PM

No way Emma!
Staff always eat the dinners here!
We even have one staff from next door (male ward) come and take our food!
It's only because there's always loads leftover. We are only a 10 bed ward and next door is 19 so there's never any food left over there

Pomegranate 13-05-2021 04:59 PM

Yeah and although there is a bit more selection and choice in the bigger hospitals, the hot options are also usually the same as ward food. So, like why pay 5+ for dinner when the nice catering staff will put some of the ward food aside? After patients have eaten of course.

Cacoethes 13-05-2021 05:07 PM

Exactly! It's only sensible!

tamobhuuta 13-05-2021 06:14 PM

L got me party rings ��

Cacoethes 13-05-2021 06:17 PM


I've just had dinner
It was this pasta thing with ham, cheese and leeks and some mixed veg and I had chocolate angel delight stuff for dessert. It was all tasty!

nonperson 13-05-2021 06:19 PM

I want that dinner... =/

Cacoethes 13-05-2021 06:22 PM

It was nice!
What are you having for dinner np?

tamobhuuta 13-05-2021 06:22 PM

It's years since I had angel delight, probably junior school.

nonperson 13-05-2021 06:28 PM

I have Angel Delight in the cupboard but not enough milk (or effort) to make it =P

I don't know what to have for dinner. Maybe tortellini...

tamobhuuta 13-05-2021 06:28 PM

Sounds good np. We're having veggie burgers.

nonperson 13-05-2021 06:30 PM

Ooh, I want burgers.

Why does everyone else's food sound nicer than the food I have available...

tamobhuuta 13-05-2021 06:32 PM

Tortellini is nice, especially spinach and ricotta.

nonperson 13-05-2021 06:32 PM

That is the flavour I have!

I just need some motivation to go make it.

tamobhuuta 13-05-2021 06:34 PM

You can do it!

Cacoethes 13-05-2021 06:40 PM

Tortellini is yummy!

nonperson 13-05-2021 06:45 PM

I'm so hungryyyyy.

tamobhuuta 13-05-2021 06:49 PM

Fair enough!

not_so_insig 13-05-2021 06:52 PM

I had paella for tea.

tamobhuuta 13-05-2021 06:55 PM

I never had paella even when I ate meat.

Cacoethes 13-05-2021 06:59 PM

Paella is so good

nonperson 13-05-2021 07:40 PM

I think I've had it a few times. Does it always have prawns in it?

Tortellini has been consumed =)

tamobhuuta 13-05-2021 07:41 PM

How was it?

nonperson 13-05-2021 07:49 PM

Yummy, of course.

The cat was trying to get in on the pastary goodness as well.

tamobhuuta 13-05-2021 08:09 PM

Our cat loves human food.

nonperson 13-05-2021 08:13 PM

It was the cheese he was after.

not_so_insig 13-05-2021 08:21 PM

My paella didn't have prawns in it because I chose not to put them in.

tamobhuuta 13-05-2021 08:21 PM

He's a naughty boy.

Cacoethes 13-05-2021 09:10 PM

Paella doesn't always have prawns in it. You can get many different types!

nonperson 14-05-2021 01:38 AM

That's all I seem to remember about it!

tamobhuuta 14-05-2021 08:31 AM

I'm up weirdly early because I woke up starving.

nonperson 14-05-2021 10:14 AM

Hope you had a nice breakfast to fix the hunger, Tamo.

tamobhuuta 14-05-2021 10:20 AM

It was very nice, pikelates and biscuits. I don't like toast on its own.

How are you?

Cacoethes 14-05-2021 11:19 AM

Morning guys!

I went to coffee morning and had a latte from a fancy machine and a croissant!

tamobhuuta 14-05-2021 11:20 AM

Ooo yummy. I could do with a croissant.

Cacoethes 14-05-2021 11:45 AM

It was tasty!
Haven't had one in ages!

tamobhuuta 14-05-2021 12:12 PM

Sounds like a good start to the day.

one_step_closer 14-05-2021 12:22 PM

I had Tesco's version of cheerios for my breakfast. Very dull.

one_step_closer 14-05-2021 12:23 PM

But it's the afternoon now, what are you all having for lunch?

tamobhuuta 14-05-2021 12:25 PM

Left over veggie burger.

Cacoethes 14-05-2021 12:34 PM

I had a chicken mayo sandwich!

tamobhuuta 14-05-2021 01:46 PM

Each to their own...

Cacoethes 14-05-2021 02:06 PM


I don't know what to do with myself

tamobhuuta 14-05-2021 02:17 PM

Are you able to read, or do some drawing?

Cacoethes 14-05-2021 03:00 PM

I did another group! We made mocktails!

tamobhuuta 14-05-2021 03:44 PM

Nice, what flavours?
