Cellpic Sunday — 5/7/23

John Steiner, the blogger behind Journeys With Johnbo, has this prompt he calls Cellpic Sunday in which he asks us to post a photo that was taken with a cellphone, tablet, or another mobile device. I thought this might be fun so I decided to join in.

I’m not normally the type who takes photos of every meal I eat at different restaurants or at home and post them on social media. But in January of this year I was in the hospital for two weeks after I fractured a hip. I had been complaining to my wife about how awful the meals had been.

But then, on January 20th, the sixth night of my hospital stay, I had this plate put on my bed tray.

It looked absolutely delicious. A generous piece of moist salmon with a salsa topping, diced carrots, diced beets, and white rice sides. I thought that finally I’d be getting a decent-tasting meal. I was so excited that I took this photo with my iPhone and sent it to my wife. She responded by texting me back, writing, “Looks yummy. Let me know how it tastes.”

A few minutes later I sent her this one-word text: “Inedible.”

If you wish to participate in this fun cellphone photo prompt, please click on the link to John’s post at the top of my post to see his photo and to read his instructions.

      It did look good, which made it all the more disappointing when it didn’t taste good.

    They certainly should make the food palatable, even if not delicious, as nutrition is essential to recovery.
