  Real Home Cooked Food!
And this time I could even taste it.

One thing I have not mentioned about my new location is the medical doctor here actually seems to know what he is doing. I will explain that in greater detail, but he has prescribed a nasal spray with a steroid and my sinuses have cleared up to the point I can now experience the full spectrum of tastes and smells that I have been missing over the last year. This of course is a good news bad news situation, but that too will be delved into in greater detail. Now back to the issue at hand, Real food.

Tonight's dinner was a real tasty treat. I looked up from my humble cube around 5:45 PM to discover that there was nobody at the stove! I rushed out, grabbed the five quart pot and filled it with water and placed it on the stove. I had decided to break open the salmon steak that comes in one of the handy foil packages. This was one of the items that were included in the last food package from home.

Using the heavy cast iron skillet I stir-fried up three large cloves of garlic (sold in the commissary), two onions, one large fresh green pepper, and one small can of mushrooms. I cooked about two thirds of a pound of pasta and have a twenty ounce bowl filled with pasta and the vegetable mix for use with tomorrow's protein product. It might be the previously vilified creature from the sea. (See I did not say it. I will not offend some of my readers that do not find all my food choices to their liking. HA HA and you know who you are.)

Once the pasta was just about finished I warmed the salmon up by placing it atop the vegetable medley cooking in the skillet. It was truly an amazing blast for the senses. Pasta with (mostly) fresh vegetables topped with a salmon steak and plenty of parmesan cheese!

So now having washed all the pots, dishes, and assorted implements used to prepare the delectable repast, I am documenting this event for the free world to savor and enjoy.

Special thanks to Mom and Dad for the salmon! I know it is a lot of extra effort to send me the food, but it does really make a difference. I do not know how many of you out there have gone through the effort to ship ten to fifteen pounds of assorted can goods, cookies, bricks of cheese and DOVE DARK CHOCOLATE HEARTS (yeah I really liked those, the one bag actually lasted ten whole days, but not without some real struggling HA HA). I know it is not easy, but it makes a real incredible difference in my meals and treats. But as they say, "It ain't easy!"
