    Actually I spelled it wrongly:

    It's Kimchi.
    It's very spicy cabbage made by Koreans. Since living in Seattle, I have developed a HUGE taste for Asian foods, esp Thai, Korean and Vietnamese

    I think the sickest thing was a patient brought some balout, the duck eggs........Well its sick to me anyways.......

    We had a patient overnight some white castle burgers one time.........
    I am afraid of anything home made....eek....We get dozens ond dozens of cookies at Christmas time.The last one I ate had a great long hair baked right in there...I don't touch that stuff now.....(not that we don't eat hair in this house-and pounds of it I'm sure-with 2 dogs and 4 cats running around-but it's OUR hair-you know?)

    I love kimchi soup. They're sold in most supermarkets. They are packaged in plastic bowls. Just add boiling water. I eat three or four a week. Very spicy! It'll put hair on your chest.

    What a relief! Glad to hear it's NOT a meatoid substance!

    I'm glad to hear Kimchi tastes good - the smell is just awful to me and I can't get past that (used to live near some Koreans who ate it like crazy)
    odd, since I love curry and sometimes the smell of that can raise the dead......

    Nurses WILL eat anything -- one night I was starving and had nothing to eat. Wedged into the back of the freezer was a Lean Cuisine labeled by a nurse that'd been gone from the facility for at least three months. After scraping off the freezer-burned parts, it WASN'T half bad... Thai Chicken with Noodles, I think it was.

    How is water thickened? With gelatin or something?

    Quote from kaseysmom
    this isnt' something someone brought in - but in nursing school - our instructor made us each take a bite of thickened liquids (water and thick-it for patients who are at risk for aspiration) - not my favorite way to drink water..yuck

    Not weird, but I loved the days when the drug reps brought in Olive Garden!!

    water is thickened with thick-it powder, its a starch thats flavorless.........Like using potato flakes to thicken it........Although its suppose to be flavorless, the consistency tells your brain something is wrong, and it make it taste funny.......

    At the hospital I work in, the different EMS teams will bring us food and ink pens! We KNOW who to call for a non-emergency transfer! If you want a nurse to remember you, just FEED them!

    One of our doctors brought in soy nuts a couple of weeks ago........she's been trying to get us to eat healthier stuff, but these things went over like a lead balloon. :stone

    We did, however, jump all over the crate of oranges one grateful patient's family brought us........YUM!!
