Happy Friday my lovelies!
Today marks one full week of my first blogging experience and I must say it has been quite a ride. I am so glad, overjoyed even, that you all have taken a liking to my little graham cracker crumbs of life!! I hope to keep entertaining and enlightening you as the days, weeks, and months roll on.
Today’s adventure ( because everyday is an adventure with me) took me to Kenny & Ziggy’s a delicatessen in The Galleria in Houston, TX. I had heard fantastic things about it and figured since I was on my own today that I would try it. So I saunter in ( I am still fighting with knee pain) around 12:45 and you would think that I had a massive third eye in the middle of my forehead the way those folks were looking at me! I mean seriously, I nearly backed out of the door with my hands up in a non-threatening posture. Everything about the way I was ogled, said, ” We think you have made a mistake and we will give you about 10 seconds to correct yourself before someone does it for you.” What? I can’t like corned beef, pastrami and dill pickles? What? I can’t like cheese blintzes and potato pancakes? I call BS on that!! I asked where to-go orders were taken and walked to the counter with no inkling of fear or intimidation on my face or in my walk ( with the exception of the slight limp that is) and ordered. Even the line worker looked at me in surprise. Nonetheless, I ordered, got my food, paid, and went back the way I came.
Just because I am who I am and I look how I look, don’t assume that I am not cultured, refined and enjoy foods outside of my ethnic heritage. This goes beyond food establishments to the greater community, embrace people of all nationalities, ethic groups and creeds because you never know, you may end up blessed in the process. Now… Let’s Eat!
Blessings and Happiness
