There's a Sarasota restaurant called J. Ryan's that specializes in mixing flavors. The special today was coconut shrimp with key lime sauce. My mom had garlic-chicken-tomato pizza. I chose the veal meatloaf with mushrooms and mozzarella cheese mixed in. Unfortunately, there was very little cheese and mushrooms, so what I was served was a big plate of beef. Normally meatloaf is flavored kind of sweetly in a way that makes it halfway palatable, but this had no flavoring, so it just tasted like finely ground beef in loaf shape. The flavor of plain beef is disgusting. I'm allergic to coconut, so maybe I should have had some of that chicken pizza.

Scott's Pet Peeve #1013

I'm a stickler about punctuation. Rock Block players may have noticed. I can tolerate people calling me a child of the '80s because that's technically correct if unnecessarily abbreviated, but don't you dare call me a child of the 80's, because no. Go »
