I realize this sounds like an anti-Obama inauguration post from the title, but that was actually just bad timing on my part. I'm totally willing to give Obama a high five, or make a playlist honoring him on my iPod, or connect him to Kevin Bacon*. I like him, and I honestly have high hopes for his presidency.
But enough of that. I am devastated to tell you all that my favorite restaurant, Chili's, has removed the Awesome Blossom from their menu. I don't think I am exaggerating when I say this is a tragedy! And our waiter did not even seem sad when he broke the news to my family last weekend.
I mean look at this--it is BEAUTIFUL. Yes, it may raise one's cholesterol to an alarming rate, and yes, it may be a leading cause of bingo wings, but it is a delicious appetizer that none of us will ever get to enjoy EVER AGAIN.
*Barack Obama is married to Michelle Obama, who appeared on "The Colbert Report" with Stephen Colbert, who was in Bewitched with Nicole Kidman, who was in Far and Away with Tom Cruise, who was in A Few Good Men with Kevin Bacon.
