I recently started taking those Buzzfeed quizzes again. You know, the ones that tell you what kind of cheese you are or which Friends character you aremost like. I had been taking them with great abandon back in the day. Well a year ago. Then I got tired of being told I was havarti or that I was a tulip. But now I’m back to taking these quizzes since I needed to know which international city I should visit based on my food choices. Buzzfeed told me I should go to Florence. Been there. Done that. But I’d be happy to go back to Italy. Anyway, another Buzzfeed quiz noted that I am an adventurous eater (notwithstanding my shellfish allergy). And, I agreed with the results. Particularly as compared to many people I have met the past year.
With all that in mind, I decided to order a burger that came with onion rings. I know those are not particularly adventurous. I just haven’t had one in a rather long time. I’d almost forgotten how they taste.
To me, it was more symbolic in nature than a true culinary desire. It was a symbol of my adventures to come. Or rather, the adventures I hope WILL come. I want to get back on the travel road and find some new dishes to try. I want to gobble up new desserts and sip new liquid delights.
I was thrilled when the burger, with mushroom marmalade came with one large onion ring. It looked so pretty and easily digestible.
