We needed a few items before our next weekly run into town, so when LV got home from work last evening we set out to get them, and decided we'll grab a bite to eat while we're there.
We got what we needed and then decided to try a different restaurant. We were seated and a smiling waitress came to take our drink orders while we pored over the menu.
LV picked out his choice of entrée, and when asked what he wants for sides he said, "green beans." I was surprised, but had to admit it would go well with his main course option.
I love seafood and opted for the seafood combo platter, thinking that if it's too much food I can always take the leftovers home and the children will consider it a treat.
As soon as the waitress left our table LV looked at me with almost panicked confusion, "I just said 'green beans' didn't I?" he asked.
"You did," I laughed, knowing how much he loathes them. I may have been a little too amused at it as he tried to come to grips with what he had just ordered.
When our food was brought to our table I felt my mouth drop open when I saw my seafood platter. Platter indeed. It should not have been called a platter, or even a plate. A saucer would have worked fine to hold my meal. Three tiny scallops were swimming in a little bowl of melted butter next to three small shrimp. A scrawny crab cake completed the combo.
There had to be a mistake, I was sure of it, especially considering the price, but nope ... that was my meal.
Somehow it struck my funny bone though, as I ate my scrawny little meal and LV bravely took a bite of his beans. It's been a while since we laughed that much over a food experience.
Unfortunately even with all the laughter, the restaurant has been placed on our "never again" list.
