The Green Stuff

I loved the desserts at the MTC. There you could choose from a huge selection of various goodies. Now whether it was my sense of self-control or some MTC policy, I would select only one dessert per meal (it was most likely an MTC policy). This made choosing my dessert the most important decision of the day (the regimented schedule of the MTC didn't lend itself to very many choices).

I remember early on in my MTC stay selecting an awesome looking green, fluffy dessert with chocolate chips. At the end of my meal, I bit into it expecting mint and was disappointed to get pistachio. I was in a sour mood for the rest of the day, and from that point on, the missionaries and I from my district would warn all who would listen to: "Beware of the green stuff."


  1. When I spent my 3 weeks in the MTC I absolutely loved the food in the cantine. The sack breakfast was the only thing that made me wonder sometimes.

  2. You'll be interested to know that my job through college was to make the desserts that would be sent up to the MTC. I know exactly how to recreate that dessert at home...which is why I haven't ever made it for you.

  3. I have to agree with "anonymous" above. I actually quite liked the food in the MTC cafeteria and ended up about 20 pounds heavier after 2 months of unlimited Mindy-made desserts. Can't say I ever tasted the green stuff, though.
