Damn you, Purple Pig. I thought your high-tourist visibility and the inevitable lines would keep me from your doors. But you just had to have space available, didn’t you? You just had to remind me of how awesome things like fried deviled eggs were, and to lay out a platter of house-cured meats that went on forever. This conspiracy you’re in with Pastoral has to be explained, too. Otherwise I can’t figure out how you managed to list my cheese addictions on the menu. Don’t get me started about the mussels…mmm, yum.
Now I see cute pig bowls and plates and platters everywhere I go, and start to think, “wouldn’t these look nice in my house?” Your fault. And, I spend my free time dissecting the Bannos recipe for spring pea & faro salad. It shouldn’t be hard, but I can’t get it right. Expect me back. Again.
