On my way to Sanctuary on Sunday, I stopped in at Paris on the Platte for lunch and decided to try something new: cambric, or Earl Gray tea with steamed milk and cinnamon on top.

I was a little startled when this pitcher appeared, but the waitress assured me it was the smallest size (16 ounces). I drank all 3 or 4 cups, loving the taste of tea plus steamed milk plus cinnamon, even though I knew the entire time that I wouldn’t be able to fall asleep that night. Why is it that tea keeps me up but coffee doesn’t?

For lunch I ordered Zorba the Greek, which was better than the house salad I had on my last visit. To be honest, the two salads are built on the same foundation of romaine lettuce; in this case, cucumbers, feta, olives, red onions and a balsamic vinaigrette made it “Greek.” The salad wasn’t gasping for air under gobs of feta, and the dressing was just a little sweet.

I find lately that I like eating olives a lot more than I did in the past. Must be the change of life.

There was a suspicious incident at the end, when the bill came with a charge for a small pitcher. The waitress corrected the amount, and I paid.

Now I’m curious to see what the small pitcher looks like. It would probably keep me up for a week.

    maybe that was the small pitcher and she changed the price because she was
    confused and told you the wrong thing?

    What’s the deal with all the new sushi places popping up in our neck of the woods? Also, want to go on an expedition? I can drive but we have to take my mini-me with us. But she’ll bring her own camera and desire for desserts. Email me and we’ll make plans! Also!? Been to snarfs by my house? Go.

    I haven’t been to Snarf’s. The only one I remember is the one in Boulder.
    Yeah, I do think the waitress got confused. Sixteen ounces should have been less than 3 cups.
