Sparky had a reward waiting for me when I got back to work on Monday for phinishing my graduate portfolio.
Let it be said that it is not a good thing that I now know these exist. I put on my big philanthropist pants and gave one chip to each person in the office, but the rest went straight down my gullet pretty darn phast.
We split a Chipotle Roast Beef Wrap that had roast beef, avocado, peppers, lettuce, tomato and Chipotle sauce in a tomato-basil wrap. I’d get it with no tomatoes in the phuture, but that’s just me. Super good!
We also split the B.L.T. & A., partially because everything is better with bacon and partly because I was amused by the name. I don’t think it takes a rocket scientist to phigure out my love for a good gimmick!
(For you non-local phollowers, T & A is the short name for a large agricultural company in the area, and this deli is located in a big ag area of Salinas. T & A can also stand for, well, you know…)
Work BFF, Sparky and I grabbed dinner at PF Chang’s after doing some shopping for our upcoming Derby party (get excited for that post!)
I had my typical Hot & Sour soup and Work BFF had her typical Chicken Lettuce Wraps, of which I procured one…
I ventured out into the noodle section of the menu. The concept of becoming intimate with this section of a menu is phairly new to me, as I’ve been a chronic dieter all my life and in the fundamental understanding of all chronic dieters, Noodle Dish is King of all Fatopia (and yes, I just used an F… because fat with a “ph” certainly does not apply in this case).
Since I’ve given up dieting pretty much this year, it’s a whole new world. (Cue the Disney music!)
Now I must say, after all this pomp and circumstance, the Dan Dan Noodles were nothing to celebrate- overly sauced, under phlavored, and definitely lacking the spice for which I was longing. The cucumbers were a nice addition, however!
Pretty sure it is against American diner etiquette to patronize a Chinese phood restaurant and NOT at least open up the phortune cookie.
And it just leaves a mess for the waiter if you don’t then eat the pieces.
And I would hate to offend.
My phortune said something to the effect of I should be prepared for a significant and exciting career move.
Do we think the cookie speaks the truth?
