I savor little pleasures most. Here’s one from the other night at Cockatoo’s Chicken Restaurant in Federal Way:
After enjoying two bowls of complimentary popcorn and a whopping half-order of spicy fried wings ($8.99), I opted to take home most of the octopus stir fry ($12.99) my escort and I had ordered.
Our waitress brought a foam clamshell container to the table. It was lined with a sheet of aluminum foil. She spooned the stir fry (octopus, cabbage, scallions and two-alarm Korean chili paste) onto the sheet of foil. She folded one edge of the foil over the stir fry, creating sort of a berm. Then she deposited our left-over rice into the foam clamshell container, right up against the aluminum foil.
Leftovers are still in my refrigerator. The rice didn’t get soggy. I’ll deal with aluminum foil vs. microwave later.
