What’s for Dinner?

One of the perks of volunteering for the annual albatross survey is the 3 squares a day. Midway has a 5 star Thai chef who is up at 2 AM every morning for an hour of meditation and then off to start the meals each day. There is always a wide variety of food to choose from both American and Thai for all meals. You can request omelets in the morning and on Thursdays you can get short order sandwiches for lunch. The hamburgers are like the old fashioned ones you could get at a good grill back before the days of fast food chains. On both Christmas and New Year’s Day, we had a sit down lunch with ham, chicken, beef, pork, fish, deviled eggs, a huge variety of salads and many different pies, cookies, brownies, and soft serve ice cream. If you go hungry, it’s your fault.

One of the newest things they have added since I was last here is a coffee machine. This is not like the coffee maker you have at home. This one make all kinds of coffees and even hot chocolate.

Choices, choices, choices

The Thais also maintain a hydroponic green house in which they grow lettuces, green onion, cucumber, tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, peppers to make that Thai food hot, and some Thai herbs. The salads are the best here because they pick the lettuce an hour before the meal. We get fed very well while on Midway.
