Whiny vegetarian moment: Why oh why do the main-dish salads at restaurants always only ever have chicken on them? It seems counter-intuitive to proclaim this, but vegetarians like salads too! I know, I know – I could ask them to leave the chicken off. But then basically I’m paying $14 for lettuce and almonds. Not cool.
Okay, fine. Fine restaurants! I’ll make my own salads at home! And then I’ll add chicken back but only as an optional addition for my beloved carnivore’s serving. And maybe a little bacon for him, too. But mine is a hearty veggie number with chickpeas and avocado and hard-boiled egg and sweet potatoes and it totally didn’t need chicken. So there.
