Best/worst In Convent Food


Recommended Posts

Best? Standing around the monastery kitchen snacking on Sr. Stephanie's whole grain muffins and indulging in homemade salsa and chips.

But it wasn't just the taste of the food, it was sharing it with the sisters. After all, its the people that make a meal special.

blessings, linnie

When I was in RL the best breakfast ever was on Sundays, - sausages, breakfast potatoes and scrambled eggs. On BIG Feastdays we also were served bacon and tomatoes. The worst ever - lambs brains

We had a sister visiting us from a very poor country, and her community can only afford to eat ice-cream once a year. We occasionally have ice-cream on feast days, but when we found that out, plus how

Although there was nothing wrong with the food itself, this was one of our more memorable meals: It was one of our first mornings in Paris. A nice box of corn flakes came down the table because, aft

...i spent the entire night in the bathroom....my stomach was NOT used to it!

another convent memory:

i burned Sr. JP's hand with the coffee pot!!! When I went to Mother A with this little news, she laughed out loud....! :lol:

When I went to visit the PCPA in Portsmouth, Sister Marie Ste. Claire made these amazing cheddar and ham biscuits for breakfast. I had to have the recipe so I could go home and make them!

The worst? Hmmm. Brussel sprouts. Hands down. LOL

Worst? I had some pretty odd things in the orphange in Argentina with the Servants of the Lord... the very worst was boiled tripe (cow's stomach).

Ah! I was wondering what the English translation of a cow's stomach would be! All I knew was the Spanish translation and the fact that we should be very grateful that we live in American formation houses... :lol:

Okay, so I've just read through all of these and have definitely laughed a lot! (Especially in regards to the cornflakes!)

So, I suppose my worst food experience was during my first year as a professed sister -- we had just received a rather abundant donation of vegetables, which as needless to say, a good portion of these veggies were quite rotten. So that day, I was one of the lucky ones chosen to sort the veggies. (Actually, despite the yuckiness, I find it somewhat enjoyable. Almost like watching a really gruesome surgery. You just can't help yourself!)

I was given a box of zucchinis to sort through. Basically, if at least SOME part of the vegetable (or fruit) is salvageable then you cut off the bad parts and keep whatever's left. (Personally, I really appreciated living that way with our donations. O Lady Poverty!) So, I'm going through my disintegrating box of zucchinis and get to the bottom and spot what looks to be this nice plump zucchini. I go in to pick it up and as soon as I touch it, KA-BOOM! The zucchini EXPLODED!!! (To say the least, I was SO grateful to be wearing an apron over my habit that day...) I almost couldn't believe it. My first thought: "Well, that zucchini has definitely lost its substantial form..." :blink:

I never knew zucchinis could explode. :twitch:

Anyhoooo.

The best food? :eat: Hmmm... Sr. M. Ludwina of the Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate makes some amazing pansit (Philippine noodle dish)!

I think I also had the best PB&J sandwich from a SMME "Come & See" a few years ago. De-lect-able.

SSVMs also know how to make GREAT pizza from scratch. Even with all the random donations on top, it's still (usually) turns out quite tasty!

And Sr. Regina, CFR makes a mean Italian spinach soup. :twothumbsup:

I'll let you know about those puddings after I return from my visit next month! :D

Oh my! The exploding zucchini made me spew my soda all over myself! LOLOL I couldn't stop laughing!

I love it!

But I have a question and I'm sure it was answered some place else but what is the issue with not spelling c h e e s e correctly? What happens? Or should I just attempt to do so and find out for myself?

Despite the "gross" factor of the exploded zucchini, I must admit I did find great amusement in it... honestly, I'm glad there were other sisters around to witness it! (Although the sister next to me didn't take it so well... :hehe: Haha!) :twothumbsup: Makes me wish I had it on camera!

I was also wondering about this c h e e s e thing...

coagulated milk... (Okay... I just waited a few seconds hoping it would somehow change into "coagulated milk" before my very eyes, but so far nothing has happened. I guess it happens after you post...)

coagulated milk testing...

Ah... so it changes into "coagulated milk" AFTER posting.

Now I know. :gradtalk:

Is somebody lactose intolerant? :coagulated milk:

:))

Edit: Aww, that c h e e s e emoticon is so disappointing. :sadder:
