Food Thoughts with: Erik Neilson The crisp smell of cheese; the aroma of steak. These were just some of the many things that they were hit with when students entered the dining hall for the December 6th, 2012 Community Lunch. As previously stated, the main entrée for the lunch was Philly Cheese Steaks. With additions such as onion straws to be put on the side or on top of your Sammy, it was a very hearty meal. The green beans and peppers/onions were also a good addition. I heard a few murmurs of there being a lack of rolls, but the onion straws were a great substitution. Mr. Mayhew had a salad with the rather pink raspberry dressing, and he described it as “tasting like rasberries.” What a veteran food palate we have here on campus. The eclairs were good as always, but some wished they were a tad bit bigger. All in all, the meal was very good and the general consensus around my table was the meal was a solid 8.
