Ever since I was a little kid I have walked past various restaurants in the DC area, and there are certain things that I have noticed on the menu.
This is one of them!
I happened to go to a Vietnamese restaurant one day and as I looked at the menu I saw Quail. I thought to myself “what a wonderful world” . Actually, kinda sorta but more like “if I order this will it actually be a real meal or just itty bitty finger food“?.
I decided to take a chance, after all, I could say that I have had Quail. It was ordered and when it was finally ready and in front of me now was when I thought to myself: “what a wonderful world”. Oh the colors of the vegetables on the place were just so pretty, so pretty in fact it made my brown eyes start to tear.
Just a little bit.
There was a feeling of euphoria as I bit into the succulent morsels, which yielded rather easily thanks to the tenderness of the bird. It was rather reminiscent of duck, which I absolutely love, both cooked and alive.
Oh, and the meal was more than I expected, it was rather satisfying. It is at this point that I wish to insult the Israelite’s of Bible times for being morons.
I mean first you complain about manna, then you get this wonderful bird in abundance……..and your still not happy.
I just don’t get it, especially after this wonderful experience that I hope to enjoy again real soon.
