DAY 13: CHEESE ENCHILADAS
July 15, 2014
THE HUNGER JAMES OFFICIAL RATING:
Sundays are supposed to be spent in front of the TV and napping on the couch, right? Ok good. Because that is literally all I did. The only time I put on pants (pajama bottoms) was when I went out to get my 2 bagels and cream cheese for breakfast.
I put in a good five to six hours on my Netflix account and then, before I knew it, it was time for dinner. Not in the mood to go out (and put on pants) and definitely not in the mood to cook, I did the next best thing: Seamless.
I had only just discovered Seamless about a month ago and fell in love with the idea. Go online, pick out food, press a button, and in 30 minutes a tiny little Spanish man with a bike helmet is handing me food.
When you are a vegetarian, on Seamless, the options are pretty
narrow. I had pizza the night before, so that was out. And I
definitely was not paying a delivery fee for a salad, so I perused
the list of restaurants until I found one that seemed interesting:
I love Mexican food, and figured I could always get one of my
favorite (vegetarian) dishes: Cheese Enchiladas. So that is what
I ordered. I filled in my delivery address and under special
instructions I wrote “Please a side of sour cream please.” I
figured if I wrote “please” twice they would definitely pay attention.
They did not. The little Spanish man came and went on his motor scooter and I went into my living room to enjoy my enchiladas WITHOUT sour cream.
The meal came with three enchiladas with a side of rice and beans. I was so hungry, that it tasted great, but I knew, deep down, this was one of the worst meals I have ever had in my life. The cheese wasn’t melted. The rice wasn’t cooked. And the beans were beans. You know what would have made this meal enjoyable? You guessed it. Sour cream.
I finished the aluminum tin of food and then sat in my shower and cried for a good 15 minutes. Typical Sunday for me.
