Butner’s Wonderful Food …. NOT!

I haven’t mentioned food in a while. I’m still eating every breakfast which, depending on the day, is cereal, oatmeal, cake (yes, even chocolate cake sometimes), pancakes, French toast and fruit.

Lunch is still iffy. We had hamburgers today (mostly on every Wednesday though).  Other lunches include chicken (at least 2x/week), tuna fish (again at least 2x/week in the evening or lunch), hot dogs, pizza (very soggy) and some other stuff that I would just as soon forget. I make it to three or four lunches in the dining hall per week.

I miss more dinners than anything else. They served some disgusting pork chops and a sweet potato tonight. The chop was greasy, fatty and paper thin. I took one bite and went back to the cell for a PBJ sandwich. I am getting about three servings of fruit a day, primarily bananas, grapefruit, oranges, apples, and prunes or figs that I buy in the commissary.

On another note, we had a very generous 4th of July meal yesterday. We got BBQ chicken, hamburgers, hotdogs, potato salad, watermelon. baked beans, lettuce and pasta (must have been left over from another meal). Rec also had the popcorn machine going for the holiday.

It’s very hot so my outside activities have been limited to my walk and weightlifting this morning.  I had a short 20-minute walk this afternoon. I’m going to try for another 45 – 60 minute walk at around 7 pm when it cools down.
