Well that’s a thing I shouldn’t know about.
When I go in to the Delaware office, I usually get one disappointing slice of pizza for lunch.
It’s basically tasteless. Often soggy. Frequently tepid.
Its redeeming values are: it’s cheap, has a moderate calorie count, and is an excellent vehicle for sriracha sauce. Which I keep in my desk there for exactly this reason.
(I mean, I didn’t start eating it as a vehicle for sriracha. I discovered this benefit shortly after I started categorizing it as triangular cardboard. — There are other choices at the cafeteria, but they aren’t a lot better / they are a lot spendier. Not a great value in trading up.)
So last week, I was in the office, but didn’t get my single slice of pizza-shaped foodstuff. Ergo, no sauce to go on it.
While I was in NYC I ended up having a Mexican Caesar salad (which in retrospect was definitely missing the jalapeños) at Chopt – and had them go light on the Caesar dressing but add in a little sriracha. Because hot please.
But now I want more! (As one does.)
There are a few things I make at home that I’d top with it – but tonight I discovered a recipe for sriracha popcorn. (With a little raw quinoa mixed in, for protein. Or so I say.)
And I shouldn’t know sriracha popcorn is a thing.
Aw man. And I was doing so well.
