I plan on having one later and I'm fishing for ideas.
I sure am,
You order your food from one server, and then some coplete stranger from the kitchen brings your meal to you and ask "who ordered the ____". This is done as the meals are finished so they arrive at all different times, totally destroying the ability to eat together. I drives me nuts.
Am I supposed to reward this lazy behavior with a tip? Do they think I want to be served as fast as possible (which only serves to clear the table sooner for the next poor souls) I tell you this, the tip amount drop significantly when I get this treatment.
Now granted, I don't dine at the best places in town, but I have this happen all the time in a variety of "decent" places, especially on the weekend. What a crock! What am I even tipping at all for? Should I give some person who won't take the time to help carry out all meals for my table at THE SAME time a 25% tip for refiling my ice tea obsessively. I think not. What's your view on this, and what are your biggest service gripes? Please tell.
I'm having leftover chicken and broccoli fettucine alfredo with a glass of o.j. (combating the effects of all the tequilla I drank last night) It just got me thinking about all the things I will eat in the morning to avoid having cereal. Just wondering if I'm the only one who has grilled a burger at 9:00 a.m.?
I'm not sure if anyone else has addressed this topic here as of yet. If so, sorry I could not find it.
Had a salad tonight that should have been delicious, but it was ruined by the "new fresh taste" recipe of Krafts buttermilk ranch dressing. It was so horrible I thought it was spoiled, and then I noticed the words "new fresh taste" on the label. I realized that I had not been poisioned merely ripped of again by some cost cutiing idiot in the food industry. First the shady downsizing in packaging that they referred to as their "new look" or the like, when what they were really doing was giving us less product for the same price. Now they have changed the recipes on some, if not all of their dressings.
I got online after dumping my salad in the trash, and found many unhappy comments about The buttermilk ranch, the catalina french, the miracle whip, the thousand island. I am sure there are more.
What are they thinking? The stuff was edible before and I favored their ranch dressing over many others. Now it tastes like some nasty cheap mayo from school cafeteria days. I have seen on the internet where they have lost many lifelong customers over this recipe change. People are really upset about it as am I.
I am later than most in discovering this change, because my wife is a bargain shopper and had me stocked up with the old recipe ranch through the summer and winter. I did however email Kraft foods about the change as soon as I tossed my salad.
I don't think Kraft plans on doing anything about the complaints besides sending coupons for free dressing to the people who called the 1-800 number and complained. Why do they think the people calling would want a coupon for another flavor of their now crappy dressing? Why don't they apologize for selling them the slop in the first place and send them a check.
I think I will make my own buttermilk ranch dressing from now on. Any recipe suggestions?
