OK, shit, is this almost over? Please?
Melanie was available for an impromptu lunch today, and I wasn’t in the mood for Vietnamese, so she suggested Lone Star. Yeah, that sounds good.
Ah, but: no tomatoes on the Signature Lettuce Wedge, and no tomato for the burger.
There are actually several varieties of tomatoes from several different locations that have not been implicated in the Salmonella outbreak, but apparently it’s too hard (or impossible) for restaurants to vet their respective supplies that finely. That, or no one can be bothered to work through the problem, so baby out with the bathwater.
I just asked Lea what she planted this spring, and Early Girl was one of the three or four varieties she named, so it won’t be long. I might have to start carrying a tomato and a knife with me.
I miss tomatoes.
