So Chris and I stopped for dinner at Cafe Rio for veggie salads. (No cheese please!) If you have never been to Cafe Rio, you should because it's delicious and cheap. We got take-out because Chris had to rush home to go do a contract ( He's a real estate agent and can help you with all your real estate needs) He had to wait to delve into his scrumptious dinner. On the way out he asked me to put it in the oven so it doesn't get cold. Okay. No problem. I ate my delicious veggie SALAD. It was good and filling.
Later, Chris is eating his salad. "This is really gross" he says. "The lettuce is all wilty and crispy. The guac is very brown. The cilantro is blah. Not so appetizing."
Then, and only then, did it dawn on me that I put his salad in the oven to stay warm. It wasn't warm in the first place. Salads are supposed to be cold. Duh!!
Later still, I thought about Chris' oven salad and started laughing hysterically. I remembered that just before putting the salad in the oven I wondered if I should take out the lime first. I got a big kick out of that. The kind where I was laughing so hard I was crying. I guess I was really in the need for a big, fat laugh. I got one.
Moving on to my food miracle....
Isn't it pretty? Not saying that my cooking is a miracle or anything, just needed a word that started with an "M" and as the opposite of mishap for a catchy header.
I made this Vegan Orange Buttercream Sun Cake for a Summer Solstice gathering with friends. It was very yummy!!
