How are things in New Zealand? We wanted to know what foods you ate in Antarctica and to let you know that here in Farmington Hills, it was 4 degrees this morning. That sounds colder then it was in McMurdo.Wow, that's getting pretty cold. At McMurdo Base there is a cafeteria that serves food for all the people who are living and working there. We were provided with three hot meals a day at McMurdo. My favorite food there was the fresh baked bread. Things were a little different at the field camps. We took food that was canned, dehydrated, or frozen out to field camps. We cooked regular meals, like chilli, or soup, or rice and beans and vegetables, but we made it from food that had been preserved. We had cheese and milk, but we made the milk from a powder mix and the cheese was frozen, so we had to thaw it out first.
