I was on my way to Savannah and was driving through Lexington, SC at lunch time. How fortuitous for me! I decided that I needed to stop by Farmer’s Shed for lunch. I was all ready to order the cranberry pork chop, when the lady taking my order said "That is Wednesday’s menu. Today is Tuesday."
I was in a quandary now. I did not know what I wanted to order. I finally decided to get the chicken pot pie, collards, and squash casserole. The collards were very tasty as usual. And the squash casserole was equally wonderful. However, for me, the chicken pot pie was just okay.
(1) I thought I was going to order pork chops. I was so thrown off, that it did not really matter what I ate. The enthusiasm that I had going in was gone.
(2) Even though there was a lot of good flavor in the pot pie, there was so many peas. I don’t like peas. I spend more time picking peas out of the pie than actually eating it.
Complaints aside, the crust on the pie was flakey, delicious goodness. There was a lot of meat which made this very filling. That being said, the peas are a deal breaker so I would not order again. I hate peas that much.
If I do, I will make sure of the day’s menu so I can avoid taste bud disappointment (that has to be a first world problem). All in all, this a Triple D pick that was on point. Sometimes his suggestions can be hit or miss. I am not above giving credit when credit is due. Good going Guy Fieri!
It all looks yummy to me. But I know what you mean about peas – a little goes a long way.
LOL when I was little, my mom and I came to a truce. I only had to eat 10 peas. That was all I could stand.
I know what you mean about getting something you weren’t expecting. I think I may have talked about this in an old blog. I was expecting ground beef tacos on a crispy shell with all the trimmings. Instead, I got chicken with a dollop of lettuce on a soft, hand-made taco. When I tried to roll it up the taco fell apart. I would have liked more filling than dough. The chicken had a good flavor, but I got a small bone. That’s a deal breaker for me. I ate because I was hungry, but I couldn’t finish the one with the bone.
