But, sometimes my organic produce comes with a few strange accompaniments.
This week's package of mixed red and green romaine lettuce included a clover-like green. It looks nice in a tiny vase. I'm not sure if it's edible or a stray weed that was harvested by accident.
Tonight I found another mystery addition to the greens. It looked like a chunk of mushroom. But then I remembered I didn't add mushrooms to my salad. After a quick rinse under water, it appears to be a small piece of cooked beef. GROSS!
I even washed the greens carefully and let them drip dry for a few minutes. Apparently I need to wash each leaf individually from now on!
The hubby thinks the meat was a straggler in my cup of leftover salad dressing from a restaurant. I think I would have noticed a chunk in my creamy dressing, but maybe not. Still, that hunk of whatever didn't belong in my vegetarian salad!
Have you ever found something that didn't belong in your food? I'm thankful I haven't come across the cliche tarantula on a bunch of bananas or a thumb in a can of green beans. Whew!
