Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “mean(s).” Use it with or without the “s,” any way you’d like. – Linda G. Hill

My husband and I eat simple meals with fruit and vegetables plus eggs for brunch; and for dinner, have salmon instead of eggs. That means we eat basically the same thing every day.
Friday evening is our regular night out at a local steak house Cedar Creek. He orders the same thing every time – prime rib steak, 18 oz cooked medium well, French fries, green vegetables, house salad and horseradish for the steak. He makes it clear to the server that the horseradish must be fresh to a point it clears his sinuses. The same server waits on us for more than a year, so he knows exactly what my hubby wants. Sometimes the server is rotated to the patio section and we prefer to stay inside.
I may eat 2 oz of meat now and then. When eating at home, a large plate of plain broccoli stir-fried with olive oil, a bit of salt and pepper serves me well. It’s hard for me to find a large portion of vegetables in American restaurants. At this restaurant, I order the Brown Derby Cobb Salad with romaine lettuce, small cubes of turkey, tomatoes, bacon, blue cheese crumble, broiled eggs and avocado.
The avocados must not be in the best reason. When I ordered the same salad last week, I got brown avocado slides. After asking for fresh ones a couple time, the server brought a new avocado cut in halves in front of me and it was brown.
Last night I tried a different salad – the curried chicken salad on a half papaya served with fruit. There was onions in the salad and my stomach doesn’t like the onions. The server said the salad is premixed, so I tried anyway. Half way through eating, my stomach told me it was not good.
I’ll go back to order the Brown Derby Cobb salad hoping the avocado is green instead of brown.
