greens

Sometimes a little green salad is all it takes to turn a bad day into a good day. Friday night or rather 4:30 Saturday morning a cabinet that held my pots and pans and large salad bowls and large plates fell. Yup, fell, it peeled itself off the wall and fell! There was broken glass everywhere and not just shards but pulverized glass dust. Huge mess but we felt lucky in a way since no one was hurt and someone would have certainly been hurt as it fell where it fell. We cleaned and went to eat and had a terrible breakfast, the waitress could not get anything right, and this is our second bad experience at this place. The last time it was the same problem but different wait staff - I see a trend here.



Mesclun is fun salad with all the varietal greens it reminds me of the ocean.



We also ate grilled curried chicken tenders with brown rice and peas, as we listened to the rain pummel our windows and the wind howl.

wow--I'm glad everyone was okay!! And you still managed to cook up the goods in a pulverized kitchen.

oh that's terrible!!! you know, i'm always terrified of that happening to me, because i have completely overloaded my cabinets, shelves and on top of the cabinets. i just know disaster will strike soon but yet i don't do anything about it. voila. i'd rather eat the curried chicken tenders.

Still, is that blue cheese or brie on the salad? Nice touch!

I had a rack holding my hot sauce collection fall off the wall once. Broke about ten bottles of some of the hottest sauces on the planet! Even wearing rubber gloves, my hands felt like they had been slathered in Ben-Gay for about 3 hrs.!

doggybloggy said...

daphne: its a blue cheese, mild from Argentina

buff: rubber gloves.....

Aside from the cabinet self-destructing and throwing itself and it's content to a horrible splattering death, and the fact breakfast pretty much sucked, sounds like a wonderful way to eat that beautifully prepared and tasting food!
