Space Food ... The Final Frontier

Did Bob REALLY think he would not have to sample the space food being prepared by NASA food scientist Michelle Perchonok in our studio? We're glad he did, but unsure how he ultimately felt about the experience. I think he's glad that he's not an astronaut. Bob started with the warm, "pre-chewed" cherry-blueberry cobbler. Then he moved on to the under-seasoned beef stew and finished off his meal with the "Mexican" scrambled eggs. Coincidence or not, that was also the order in which he enjoyed the dishes. The cobbler was a smashing success he says, compared with the freeze-dried, reconstituted space eggs.
