“No soup for you!”…well thank God
Here at JUC we have two cooks. One serves lunch and the other dinner. Lunch is always…interesting. We all know what I mean by that. Each day before I waste my time climbing the stairs into the kitchen to get my food, I look into the dinning hall to see what’s to eat and to get peoples reaction to it. Today I continued that trend. The main course was pita, fried cauliflower, fried eggplant, and fried peppers. I passed. But, then I noticed that there was soup. So, I asked how it was and here are some of the replies/conversations I heard concerning it…
“I think it’s a little…grainy”
“It tastes like a burrito.”
“I don’t think so.”
“So what do you think it tastes like then?”
“I…I don’t know”
“How’s the soup?”
“It’s…it’s interesting”
“Look what happens when you let it settle and then pull up what's from the bottom…”
“If you want to get the full experience, taste the stuff that settles on the bottom. I heard it was ground up chickpeas…but I think its cornmeal.”
“It tastes like the remnants of potato soup.”
-Jeremy (The Canadian)
"It tastes like pureed beans."
“It tastes like a combination of pea soup, oatmeal, and cinnamon.”
“When I leave my spoon in the soup for a little while and then try to pull it out…I can feel the resistance.”

Taking all of this into consideration, I ended up having two apples and a PB and J sandwich…

Well it's good to see that not everything over there is different from Bethel. At least you won't have too hard of a time adjusting back. :)
