This was called peppersteak (goulash) at the Boise Rescue Mission. Well, ok, it wasn’t as bad as it looks…creamed corn never looks good next to anything…because it did have lots of nutritious green and red bell pepper in it. And the beef pieces were identifiable as pieces of a real dead animal, too. So I’ll give it my critic’s choice award this time. The real bonus, though, was the popsicle stick that I got to add to the stack that a couple children and their mom had amassed. Boy howdy, was it ever fun listening to their excitement and mom reminding them they had to eat their dinner first. Dinner and a floor show…at the Boise Rescue Mission chow hall.
Yesterday’s Boise Mission extravaganza had a cookie as you can see. Really quite a bit of the meat in this one…and a lot too spicy for me…but I’m so used to shoving down and not tasting half what I eat, it went down quick enough. The meat was shredded something-or-other (likely America’s bird) mixed with potatoes and black beans. And mixing in the cornbread tempered the stinging in the back of my gullet and gave some texture to imagine might be pleasant. All-in-all…with cookie…not too much trouble getting this one down.
