Silly me! The topic for today is restaurant chains and not the daisy variety. Still, it's a tenuous excuse to put a pretty picture on my post.
If someone picked a moment when my brain was not engaged and ask me if I visit chain restaurants I would say absolutely not. It's seems that mentioning this term causes me to visualise scenes from Super Size Me. But I'm not really adverse to the big chains on health grounds. It's concerns about animal husbandry and ethical issues about staffing, sourcing and the like that put me off. But hell, I'm sometimes a hypocrite and succomb to a burger or pizza every so often. What I find though is that I rarely enjoy, what might be viewed by some as a sinful treat, because the food lacks flavour.
Virtual Lent will resume shortly). The egg was free range and I was asked how I would like it cooked. No problems with tastelessness here although in an ideal world the olives in my topping would be a little more rustic and not the identically sized black pitted variety.
