One of the reasons I hate ordering take-out, particularly for lunch while I’m at the office, is the overwhelming fear of disappointment.
“What if they don’t deliver on time? I’m already starving.”
“What if the portion is tiny? I can’t order again, that’ll be a waste of money.”
“What if it’s too greasy? Too salty? Not flavorful enough?”
You get the picture, the possibilities are endless (and, yes I am most definitely a control freak), but alas we all have those weeks where meal-prep slips through the cracks. For the most part, I tend to be a creature of habit when it comes to ordering in, generally sticking to a handful of tried and trusted options – but every now and then I go a little crazy and try something new.
The results of my adventurous ordering sprees have of course varied greatly, however I’ve found that a lot of inspiration can take root from a bad dining experience. Enter the story of today’s Tofu Tikka Masala.
