Weird Food

If you haven't eaten with me in a while, you may not remember that I am a plain food eater. My ordering typically goes like this:

"I'll have a Cheeseburger plain and dry."
"Could I get the enchiladas with no onions?"
"Chicken quesadillas with just chicken and cheese"
"Victoria's Filet with steamed broccoli, please."
and on Taco Tuesday at Rosa's, "Taco special with no tomatos."

I don't like anything that is too spicy, too hot, involves onions or peppers (unless you can't tell they're there, which I usually can), or tomatos.

So now onto my life right now...I am constantly with people who eat weird food. These are the kinds of calls I get now:

"Hey! We're going to go eat Greek food tonight!"
"Wanna go to Bombay Palace for some Indian food?"
"I'm having a goat roast next weekend..."
"Let's go to Pho Bella for dinner." (me) "Whats Pho Bella?" (them) "Vietnamese Food."

And the call last night: "We're going to go eat Egyptian food tonight." (me) "Okay, now you're just making up food types." (them) "No, seriously. Its a restaurant called King Tuts"

So I am now being forced to venture out of my "plain and dry"/"chicken and cheese" world and into the world of Chicken Shwarma, goat thighs, Shrimp Tandoori, and Nhan. Now is the part where I'm supposed to say that trying new things has expanded my horizons and I actually like stepping outside of my food box...but I can't. My stomach has never hated me more.

Em-
this cracks me up. You should just ask for your fav. salad w/ no dressing. Every resturant has lettuce. :)

you need to visit travis at his new job at "The Spiral Diner" in Fort Worth at Magnolia for some "wierd food." It is "Cowtowns First and Only Vegan Restaraunt!" That's right! No eggs, no cheese, no meet! I've been told they have awesome soups and salads.

Ooooh, some of my friends would LOVE that. I'm sure they'll be dragging me there before long.
