Last week, I made myself a special little lunch as a treat for work.
Super-crusty Baguette from Brioche bakery
Maille Dijon Mustard
Triple Cream Delice de Bourgogne cheese
I also made a fab little tomato salad, including macerated red onions to go with. I made both baguette and salad the night before work, and was greatly looking forward to it. This was until my boss suddenly decided that the staff room fridge needed to be cleared out (even though it wasn't the fridge-clearing-out-day), and promptly threw everything unlabelled into the bin. Ahem!
Luckily my baguette was salvagable - it had been double wrapped and paper bagged, and had only been in the bin for the merest second before I pulled it out. It was still good! Phew. My tomato salad, however, had been emptied into the bin and could not be saved. It was a sad day.
And that is why, kiddies, you always label your food!
