I LOVE DORM FOOD!, originally uploaded by dpma.

I wonder where this is?

This photographer says:

"The problem with eating at dining halls is that you feel hungry again not an hour after a large meal."

UCLA food = #2 in the nation

Okay, now that looks good. Wow~

I love this - read the packages.

Dorm Food - Breakfast

So, my daughter is off to college. And she is realising even more just how good home cooking is. I've gotten texts and calls about dining hall offerings, and queries from the grocery store: "what do I get for breakfast?"  So far, she's not enchanted, but given time. . . ?

Dorm Food - Dinner

So, what are your thoughts on dorm food?  Any ideas, suggestions for a new college student?  Full meal plan, or the bare minimum with plenty of trips to the grocery?

This is another food I need to try. I totally missed out on the Suquamish Chief Seattle Days this year. Next year!

How do you like your frybread?

I've heard they sell it in the midwest at fairs and call it elephant ears.

A variety of toppings can be added to frybread.

Elephant Ear 2

Because I couldn't eat everything in one day while at Bumbershoot, I did have a bite of a friend's Elephant Ear.

This photographer says:

"Not too sweet or too buttery."

In looking up images of another festival favorite food, I found this. While it is not the Elephant Ear I was looking for, I had to share this.

Photographer's note:

""CA TAI TUONG" or the "elephant ear" fish is one of the delicacies in Vietnam cuisines.
The picture showed the real fish but already well-cooked. It is normally deep-fried with its scales intact and eat along with the Vietnamese's sauce.
:D from Traveller's World :D"

Lamb Gyro

This is a little item I have every year at Bumbershoot. When I'm at the Pike Place Market, I stop off at Mr. D's Greek Delicacies for my gyro fix.

Photographer's note:

"(Zaina, Seattle, WA)

I haven't had one of these lamb gyros in so long, and I remembered them being so good. While it was still pretty good, I am pretty sure that the meat is now processed instead of cooked fresh there. But the saucy spiciness is still delicious. It was a little pricey at about $6 but it was filling.


Fries bigger than your head

Another Bumbershoot "had-to-have" item was curly fries.

Photographer's note:

"I think this was at one giant potato that the guy at the tent drilled to oblivion with a corkscrew bit."

Fruit on a stick

While at Bumbershoot this past weekend, I had my first ShishkaBerry skewer. I had the strawberrys dipped in white chocolate and swirled in dark chocolate. Very good. The criteria for my dessert choice? It had to be something I couldn't normally get elsewhere.

The photographer of this image notes:

"ShishkaBerry's was one of the scores of food vendors at Bumbershoot."
