How freaking tough can it be for a restaurant to offer corn, green beans, peas or other standard vegetables? Why does it always have to be the cauliflower/squash/carrot "medley?" And why use a musical term to describe food? I'm sick of the mixed veggie cop-out. Sick of it!
And just because you cut fruit cocktail up into smaller pieces doesn't mean you can call it a "salsa." Salsa is for tortilla chips and huevos rancheros. Fruit cocktail is for sissies. There is a difference.
And what's with all the sweet and meat combos these days? Does a ribeye really need a raspberry reduction sauce? Are ribs really the place for apricot chutney? What happened to A-1?
Someday I will open Dave's Restaurant. Your favorite foods will be served, leave a comment so I know what they are.
And don't use the words "medley" or "salsa" unless you want a knot on your head in the shape of Chef Dave's frying pan.
