smelly deli

6 May

After an intense workout at my new favorite class yesterday plus dancing like a drunken wild fool last night (cinco de mayo is officially my new favorite holiday that I don’t understand yet celebrate passionately, see below phone conversation for proof) I woke up STARVING. You’d think the 1am Smartfood Popcorn would’ve held me over. Really.

is this real life?

I drank a protein smoothie for breakfast, snacked on some remaining popcorn and asked Danny to take me to lunch. πŸ˜€ He’s been talking about how great this “Tad’s Deli” is so we made the trip. The egg salad sandwich sounded perfect- I am usually all veggie but knew I needed some protein to qualm this wild hunger.

At first I was pumped…the egg salad looked simple- JUST eggs..not too creamy and full of unnecessary junk. I needed pure to balance out the 900 margaritas of last night.

The verdict: no flavor. Nothing. No spice, no kick. No dill. Worst. Egg. Salad. EVER. I hardly ever complain- I considered sending it back but since I work in restaurants I really don’t consider that an option. At one point I thought I was chewing on part of a napkin, and it was the bread.

Danny and I brainstormed. First, we added chips.

Still lame. We couldn’t seem to find any flavor in the jalapeno chips either. Does tequila kill taste buds? The solution to fix a lame sandwich- Texas Pete.


thumbs up for finishing

As I’m typing this, I really should have just sent the damn sandwich back. I didn’t do it because A. I’m leery of what could happen to my new food and B. I was wondering if my taste buds were shot, or my congested sinuses were to blame.

Do you send food back that you don’t like? I would if something wasn’t cooked correctly, but sending this back because I didn’t like it seemed to be my own fault.

    I never send food back that was cooked as stated and I just didn’t like it. If it’s undercooked then I send it back though.

      I guess that’s the fair way! I’m not used to not liking food so I didn’t know how to react πŸ˜‰

    I’m way too shy to send food back. I usually just plug my nose and eat it. I think I would send something back if it had a gross hair or peice of packaging in it though.

    Glad I’m not the only one is the healthy blog world who was out drinking way too much tequila last night. “Does tequila kill tastebuds?” – ha ha ha! I’m always so hesitant to send food back. Mostly because I usually don’t want to wait for them to remake it he he.

    Egg salad after a night of drinking would probably make me want to vom. Even though its definitely one of my favorite sandwiches!

    I normally dont send things back… I suffer through them!

      HAHA! Luckily I wasn’t hung over or sick-feeling…maybe that’s a bad sign? πŸ˜‰ It’s one of my favorites too, which is why I was so bummed!

    Sounds like you had an excellent Cinco de Mayo! I’m wary about sending food back too…plus I feel guilty holding up the rest of the table. I have left negative comments on the feedback cards they leave when they bring the check though.
