Dinner. A time for chatting, eating, and often queuing. Opinions on these ‘tasty’ snacks have been mixed. From the torture of the morning omelettes that oozed with milk to the joy of the potato wedges which blossomed with spices and most importantly salt. Yes, they were very good wedges.
The puddings have also been varied. From gungy crumble to the soft, sugar coated cake, which tempted people to return for seconds… and in some cases, even more. The watermelon was refreshing, until two days later, base group eight found the rinds in a corner on the floor. Those guilty have yet to forward.
Now vegetarianism is popular among Summer school attenders. And while the kitchen staff always provide an alternative option, which has gone down well, vegan food is scarce. Perhaps they can drink the water… but is this enough?
Finally, we would like to commend the serving staff on providing exact portions to the requirements of the participants. Michael claims that someone even asked for exactly seven peas, and the staff dutifully counted them out without raising an eyebrow at this dubious request. But then again, this is Summer School.
