I love ya. I really do. I am more than proud to call Iowa my home state and I cherish that I was raised in a small town. But lately you haven’t been as good to me. When eating out, why must everything include bacon, sausage, or brisket? Or be “smothered” in cheese sauce or gravy? Just the word “smothered” makes me gag a little.
And when I cobble something vegetarian/vegan together, load it up on veggies don’t give me this iceberg lettuce crap with a couple of tomatoes and less than a proper serving of beans. Substitute all of that meaty/cheesy goodness with double (or triple) veggie goodness. Cross my heart, I’ll reward you with a large tip in return. Deal?
C’mon, Iowa. I get that meat production is a large industry in the state, but let’s also focus on plant nutrients too, eh? What about seasonal produce from the local farmer selling his crop on the corner? There really is no excuse in the summer and I would hope other patrons would feel the same.
Left hungry and feeling cheated,
