The College Dining Diary- 10/5/2011

Lunch: Wednesday, October 5th, 2011

Because I'm finding it frequently hard to find time to write full on blog posts, I thought I'd start a journal of the food I eat on a daily basis....

And while I do have an actual kitchen at my disposal, the way dining works on campus is that you're given a set number of dining credits (8 in my case) to use per week, that don't roll over.  Each one is valued between 7-10 dollars depending if it's breakfast, lunch, or dinner, so if you don't use let's say 3 of them before the end of the week, you've potentially wasted $30.

I had a quick lunch today at the dining hall that serves food buffet style.  Here's what I ate, in all of it's raw, unedited glory.

A bowl of vegetarian chili that I meat-ified by adding grilled chicken breast from the salad bar.  To be honest, the soup was pretty decent as far as college food goes.  My attempt at eating relatively healthy however went out the door with some fries (which I assume to be frozen but tasty nonetheless), some chow mein (mediocre but not bad per se), and a veggie egg roll (fast food quality with a doughy skin).  I ended up eating all of the soup, the fries, but left half an egg roll and some noodles.  My beverage of choice was a glass of ice water.


  1. I've never had luck with cafeteria "asian"'s always too greasy!

  2. @ Katie:
    1) those quotes around "asian" are totally appropriate-
    2) that food felt like a grease bomb in my stomach later
