What did you eat and drink in space?

The food was mostly tinned or dried. Some, like the cream cheese and certain types of fruit juice, was in tubes rather like tubes of toothpaste. Cabbage soup, fish in tomato sauce, bread and tea were staples. We did take a small item of fresh food, which was a real treat for the astronauts who had been on Mir for 6 months when we arrived.
