#0 What I Had For Lunch Today aka The Blue Cherry

What I had for lunch today

Seriously!  This cherry was served along with my lunch today – the Ham & Mango Temptation Panini at the Ottawa General Hospital today.  Luckily not to the patients… Lovely Rosalie got beige food – some wet instant breakfast thing, Banana Bonanza Pudding, tea and milk.  So I snuck her out of her room and dragged her down to the cafeteria for a real lunch – coffee and chocolate, while I grabbed a sandwich. 

The panini was quite good – sliced ham, provolone, mango chutney and grilled pinapple on a rosemary foccaccia.   

But that blue cherry?!?!?  They must have a colour blind  dietician.

    Blue cherry! It was edible? It almost looks like a fake plastic version of a cherry. In fact, I thought it was a fake plastic cherry when I saw the photo!

    It was real. As to whether it was “edible” or not… well… I admit I’ve eaten some weird food in the past, but there was NO WAY in hell I was going to ingest that. It glowed. I didn’t even touch it with the tip of my tongue to taste it. I did however take it up to my friend’s hospital room to get better light for a photo shoot before pitching it in the trashcan down the hall. I didn’t want it expiring and releasing noxious gas in her room.

    I guess I’m the only person who see’s this and really really really wants to eat it?
