I just got back from lunch, where I ate an AMAZINGLY delicious flat iron steak sandwich... from the workplace cafeteria no less. I really enjoyed that lean cut of beef, grilled to perfection, nuzzled between toasty sourdough bread, with just the right mix of tomatoes, cheese, and grilled onions (with a side fruit salad!)...and it only cost me $5.00... Woot!
But then things turned ugly... I was eating lunch with 4 coworkers in the caf, and really enjoying my sandwich, when I realized that I had just bitten into a huge ass piece of gristle. So, now I was faced with 2 questions:
1. How do I EAT this piece of fat without puking, or
2. How do I get rid of the fat without being noticed
Inside my head, I was freaking out....the gristle tasted so nasty & greasy. In one smooth move, I put napkin-to-mouth and casually spit the chunk into the napkin and hid it between my legs. When I pulled the bread back to inspect for more fat, I was disgusted to see more gristle just waiting for me to chow down on. So glad that I had enough smarts to check for more fat before finishing the samich. I really didn't want to repeat that experience.
It's funny, when I was a kid, I loved it whenever my Mom made pork chops....I loved it because, I would always ask family members for their pork chop's strip of fat. I ate it with such delight....Now, the thought literally makes me gag!
