I had great intentions for a post today with a new fun healthy recipe. However, on my way to church today my darling friend roxanne called me saying she didn't feel so well. After she described her not-so-swell symptoms I decided we should hit up the urgent care. 6 hours later we've been relocated to the hospital for a CT scan and we haven't made much progress in the form of what is wrong...oh good times at the hospital.
I hadn't had anything to eat since my oatmeal breakfast this morning, so at about 4 I decided to check out the hospital cafeteria. (I usually eat every three-four hours, so I was dying.) I skipped over the chicken fingers, hamburgers, and french fries and saw a turkey sandwich as my only possible option. The worker behind the counter seemed less than thrilled to be working...I don't blame her...I wouldn't want to work on a sunday either. Our conversation made me realize that we have a long way to go in the form of healthy food knowledge.
Me: hi. I was wondering what kind of bread your turkey sandwich was made on.
Sassy-pants worker: sandwich bread.
Me: oohhh kaaay... Like, is it white bread? Or wheat bread?
SP: yeah. (Frown)
SP: (staring...frowning...sound of crickets)
Me: I guess I'll have that.
The sandwich was in fact on white wonderbread. Good to know that is termed "sandwich bread." Who doesn't know what wheat bread is. I took off the top piece of bread and piled what was left on one side to cut down on the white bread. Like I said I was hungry. Reeeeaal hungry. Luckily I found a side of fresh veggies to devour along side it. Oh, the hospital...
