Chris is a good sport. I am no Michelin-rated chef. But I do try to cook good food for us. I bought a bunch of things at the grocery store the other day. For dinner one night, I planned an easy meal: Ready-Made Chicken Cordon Bleu. I was going to heat it up and add some sautÃ©ed vegetables. Easy!
Everything was ready to go and we sat down to enjoy our dinner. Chris took a bite first and then I did. After my second bite I said to Chris, “This doesn’t taste right. Something is wrong with this chicken cordon bleu.” I got up to check the expiration date on the package. As I was pulling the package out of the garbage Chris said, “It tastes like it is fake chicken. Like it is vegan or something. And it tastes a little like a mix of cornbread and canned tuna.” Hmmm…. then I took a closer look at the front of the package:
OH NO! I bought VEGETARIAN cordon bleu! Really?!?! Who makes fake chicken cordon bleu? And who eats it?!?! This wasn’t in one of those special sections in the grocery store. You know – the bio/organic section or the gluten-free section. This was right there in with the refrigerated lunch meats and raw meat. Luckily we both had a good laugh and ate our odd-tasting dinner. And after Chris said, “Can we go to McDonald’s for dinner?” Yes, please!!!
