A Vegetable By Any Other Name…

Africans love bell peppers. I don’t. I’ve been unpleasantly surprised when ordering here. The menu lists out ingredients in a dish. No bell peppers are noted; I think I’m safe. The dish arrives; it’s loaded with bell peppers. Ugh.

I asked the waitress what vegetables were in the spinach salad. With a clipped accent, she replied, “Vegetables? There are no vegetables in the spinach salad.”

Surprised, I responded, “Oh., there aren’t? What’s in it?” She answered, “Spinach, lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, carrots, and bacon.”
