That’s right. I held back my green because the restaurant didn’t hold theirs. I asked the server not to include any garnish or parsley with our meals. They included it anyways. Look at that horrible waste. It isn’t like the parsley was taking up space on the plate that could have been occupied by real food as it was completely buried under my french fries and my wife’s salad. Yes, the house salad included a garnish that was found under the lettuce.
Somewhere, a family of gun-toting Marylanders who always have plenty of money for bullets and beer but not soap or meals are staring at their empty food stamps envelope wishing they had something to nibble on. This parsley, added to other sprigs collected from all over the nation could have made a horrible if nutritious yet possibly health-threatening soup. Somewhere, a pasta sauce is denied little bits of green floating in it that might be basil or not. Or gnats, depending on if the kitchen window was open during food preparation.
Save the planet and Hold the Green!
