Foodie Friday for November 21, 2008

It's Foodie Friday, and today we're gonna recap my most recent trip to the deli. I noticed that while the hot foods section of the deli seems to be generous with things like sausage and peppers, buffalo wings, and ribs, it looks like they're cheapskates when it comes to their chicken fingers... (Just one chicken finger? C'mon, you guys...)



The section of the deli where you can choose your cold cuts isn't free from mistakes, either. Upon first glance, Fleur Delis Ham might look to be a cute pun (since, y'know, it's in a deli), but I had a feeling it was more of a mistake than a clever play on words. Sure enough, when I got home, I Googled "fleur delis ham," and nothin' came up except Google asking me if I meant fleur de lis ham. Yep--just as I suspected, the brand name of the ham is Fleur De Lis, not Fleur Delis...

OK, I'm gettin' hungry. It's breakfast time for me, which means I'm double-fisting: gigantic cup of scalding hot chai tea in one hand, cold acai-pomegranate flavored water in the other hand, plus a few bites of a banana when I have a free hand (like after I've held the hot tea for too long and I've gotta put it down). Happy Friday, everyone! :)

I read this immediately before heading off to lunch. It made me about three times hungrier than I was before...

I hope that, wherever you're going to eat, they'll serve you more than just one chicken finger! :)

Okay, no joke: I had a chicken BLT, and one of the pieces of chicken fell out while I was eating. I suddenly found myself thinking of this post...

Ah, but it's a 'chicken finger and more'. You don't get 'and more' with any of the other items, do you?

Good point, JD. I wonder exactly what that "and more" includes, though...
