Mishap Numero Uno
That's spanish for number one. I was making a fried egg for a sandwich a few days ago, and after the egg got well cooked and firm on the one side, I thought I might try flipping it by giving it a little toss in the pan. Well, just as I was about to flip it, I chickened out and didn't flip hard enough. Here's the result:
|The first attempt is sitting on the counter. It wasn't pretty. The second attempt was successful, as you can see in the pan.|
Mishap Numero Dos
I was working at La Bicicleta Verde on Sunday this past weekend, and didn't break any food with me. When I finished work around 1pm, I figured I would venture out and find a restaurant or bodega or something. Before leaving, I asked another employee for suggestions. He told me about a good chinese restaurant, but then remembered that I am vegetarian and warned me there would be no good options there.
Well, I figured I'd find something else nearby...but I didn't feel like another pizza meal, so finally I thought I'd stop into the Chinese place and check the menu. Sure enough, there was a vegetable chop suey dish. "Ha," I thought, "I found SOMETHING vegetarian here!" I asked carefully to double check there was no meat or fish.
I ordered it and sat down to wait, and when the dish came out, let's just say I was surprised.
|It's sprouts, all the way down.|
Hopefully I'll have some more successful food stories coming up from this weekend!
