leftovers

October 13, 2016

We went to lunch on Sunday.

I ordered crab cakes, which were delicious, except that they arrived in a pool of mayonnaise.

Mayonnaise makes me nauseous.

I ate the non-infected top of one crab cake and asked for a second replacement crab cake (sans mayonnaise) to go.

Random picture … BEFORE the crab cake debacle.

I sent my precious take away box home with Ali and Maya so I could check out the Friends and Family sale at Bloomingdale’s.

While purchasing these shoes I contemplated texting Ali to make sure he put the leftovers in the fridge.

But then I told myself I needed to stop being so controlling.

I told myself that even my husband would recognize the necessity of food safety, especially when it came to seafood.

And another.

I got home a few hours later and nearly tripped over my takeout container, which was sitting 2 inches from the front door.

I suppressed many swear words and threw my perfect, no-mayo crab cake in the trash.

I opened the fridge and noticed that Ali’s Magnolia banana pudding – which he’d apparently purchased on his way home – was front and center and properly refrigerated.

I didn’t speak to Ali for hours.

Maya has braces!

The takeaway: I need to do EVERYTHING myself. And that now includes ensuring proper refrigeration.

    I would have completely lost it. Cudos on keeping a calm disposition. 😉
    People say controlling is a bad thing. I say that it just ensures things get done! So therefore I shall stick to controlling thank you very much. 😁

    Oh no! 😦 I would have lost my temper very easily at that. Maya looks happy on the photos 🙂

    Uncool, Ali, uncool. I don’t eat meat, but I remember crab cakes. I remember the glory of then. I remember the price of then. I remember that if made ride, they aren’t to wasted or taken lightly. Also, mayo is gross. I openly judge people who claim to like it, and eat it.

      I’m so glad you agree that mayo is gross!! Now we can grab lunch with no mayo-related disagreements. ☺

    I would be majorly annoyed and I despise mayonnaise too. It’s the epitome of gross!

      I thought I was in the minority about the mayo! I’m glad I’m not the only one.
