Many others insist, however, that the
meat is actually roadkill from I-94.
"People think we buy 'grade Z'
meat, but it's just not true. We never
buy anything less than that (Grade
A)," said Dining Services supervisor
As much as cooks strive to put
out desirable meal selections, they're
fighting a losing battle. Everyone
knows it's an undeclared rule that
students must hate dorm food and
they should emphatically declare
their disgust at every opportune
Take for instance these com-
ments found on Couzens Hall's
customer comment board. "What do
you put in your spaghetti sauce?
Every time I've eaten it I've gotten
sick to my stomach." Another stu-
dent, who didn't point out any dish
in particular, "This food is horrible."
The cooks believe students' pro-
pensity to complain is a result of so-
cialization and that the trend begins
If you really love dorm food, here's a
recipe you'll surely adore. You may
want to invite a few friends over - it
serves 352 people.
Macaroni and Cheese
Elbow Macaroni: 17.86 lb
Salt (for water): .48 lb
Water: 146.67 lb
Milk: 51.33 lb
Flour: 2.71 lb
Margarine: 4.11 lb
Salt: 1.00 lb
White Pepper: .04 lb
Grated Cheddar Cheese: 22.00 lb
1. Cook macaroni in salted water 15-
2. Wash in cold water and drain.
3. Heat milk and add mixture of flour
and margarine. Cook and stir until
thick. Add salt and pepper.
4. Add cheese and stir, without heat,
until melted. Mix in macaroni.
6. Bake 20-30 minutes at 300*F until
in elementary school when they first
experience mass-produced meals.
"That's the accepted thing to say
is that they dislike the food," said
fellow cook Judi Gable. She says it's
ironic that the students complain
while they're putting the food on
their plate. "They don't go away
The cooks say students' igno-
rance of what goes on behind the
kitchen doors leads them to question
and complain. They suggested that a
tour of the kitchen for incoming stu-
dents might dispel some of their
gripes. "I don't think they realize
that the ingredients we use here are
fresh fruits and vegetables," Hub-
Though they understand that
most students don't realize the work
involved in preparing meals for hun-
dreds of people it doesn't dispel the
hurt disparaging comments engen-
ders. "It makes me angry because
they haven't even given the food a
chance. They come through the line
and say 'this food sucks,' when they
haven't even taken a bite of it,"
Hubbard says many students who
have moved into an apartment and
are on their own for meal prepara-
tion suddenly gain a new apprecia-
tion for dorm food. "They took it for
granted when they were here, but
now they have to buy it and take the
time to cook it."
Although the cooks hear an
overwhelming number of negative
comments, they occasionally are sur-
prised with a compliment. "I like to
see those positive comments," Gable
said. "If they want to say they liked
the chicken fried rice, okay. It makes
me feel like all that work I went
through to get that fried rice out was
They're not Big Brother, but the
cooks do know your tastes. They
even try to prepare tasty food - not
including meatless moussakka.
Fifty Bucks In Free Groceries?
Yes, it's true. There has never been an easier way to stock your
fridge. All you have to do is send me a recipe.
What recipe? ANY recipe. Directions for making your favorite
appetizer will suffice. Or maybe you have a great idea for triple
chocolate fudge brownies or something. Whatever it is, send It in.
The first place winner will be given a $50 gift certificate to White
Market on William Street. The second place winner will receive a
$25 gift certificate.
I tried to hold this recipe contest last semester, but, for some
reason, almost nobody sent in recipes. Maybe now, with the
recession and all, you starving college students will be a little more
enthusiastic about free food.
Recipes will be judged on how well they satisfy the four college
food groups: cheap, easy, fast and good - both good tasting and
good for you.
Deadline for entries is Thursday, April 9 at 12:01 (okay, if you bring
it in a few minutes late I'll probably let it slide.)
Entries can be mailed to: Recipe Contest, The Michigan Daily, 420
Maynard, Ann Arbor, 48104, or via MTS to "Food for Thought."
