I'm all for adventure and carpe diem and all that, but ultimately I like regularity. Especially time spent with family and loved ones.
I've been going to the same place for breakfast for some time now ~ maybe close to a year and a half?
And I love having grilled tomato for breakfast. I don't especially like their grilled tomato though - it's always underdone. And I've taken to reminding them to cook the tomato a bit more - results have been iffy.
So, the last time I was there (very recently) - they had a new guy and of course I asked for the usual stuff I ask for. And of course the new guy didn't understand. To cut a long story short, the older staff came over and took the order, usual instructions noted.
When the order arrived, I was slightly shocked and totally amused. The tomato was burnt almost to cinders.
It turned out to be not such a bad thing though. Blackened tomato is absolutely delicious! I'm asking that all my future tomatoes be done this way!! Haha. Mmmmmmm.
