Good Foodie Friday

It's Good Friday, the meatless day to end all meatless day—I hope all of you observers have prepared! When I was a kid, this was the only day of Lent we were expected not to eat meat. My mother asked me if I would be refraining from eating meat today, and I told her I didn't know. If I do, it's purely coincidence.

Right now I am trying to decide what to order for dinner. You'd think with all the options here in Brooklyn that this decision would be much easier than it was in Connecticut, but it really isn't. More choices lead to more confusion, and some of these places have hundreds of reviews on sites like Yelp and Grubhub.

Oh, the reviews! One review will say, "This burrito changed my life: I got off drugs, ended my abusive relationship, and started my own business." Then the next review will read, "If I could give this restaurant negative ten thousand stars, I would. The food killed my dog and robbed my grandmother. Delivery was fast, so I may or may not order again." Very helpful, no?

I can't wait until my other half gets home so we can hem and haw over this decision for an hour before ordering the same thing we ordered last time.
