Go big or go home.
Less is more.
Too much is never enough.
Put an egg on it.
Just do it.
All these tag lines and catch phrases can be applied to the mystical occurrence that has been given the name brunch.
Sooo, this past Sunday they started with an idea, a food fiesta really: chilled shrimp salad with tomatoes and avocado in a lettuce wrap.
Then this happened:
A very similar concept in that it was a chilled shrimp lettuce wrap….
But completely different.
The Craic Team had visions of a chilled shrimp salad with avocado and tomato and corn and hot peppers but then they found a sweet potato on the edge of expiration and all hell broke loose. That did NOT fit into their plans.
So the plans changed.
And they roasted that sweet potato with Garam Masala and pan sautéed that shrimp with Chinese 5 Spice and some peppers and uncooked ramen noodles and onion and a garlic clove or two. They made some peanut sauce, grated a carrot, chopped up some Thai basil, threw it all together on a lettuce leaf and called it brunch.
As John Lennon said, “Life is what happens while you are making other plans.”
