Even after such a disappointing lunch, I tried to keep an open mind about dinner. Surely, nothing could be worse than the mush I had at the previous meal.
Well, the good news is that I actually got to chew the meat... A lot. It was a little bit like gnawing on a leather shoe, with about the same amount of flavor.
The mashed potatoes (as mashed potatoes should be) were mushy, which is no surprise. They did, however, bear far too close a resemblance to the paste that so many of us consumed in elementary school.
Even my usually trusty hummus and pita chips failed me tonight. The chips were freezing cold, and the hummus tasted like the kitchen had run out of literally everything except for the chickpeas they ground up for the hummus.
Luckily, the Tidal Wave Blue is still a constant.
