First off, absolutely no disrespect to the sausage sandwich. That’s a sausage with peppers and onions. That’s a sacred thing, even if it is turkey sausage. It’s amazing. You’ll love it. You should eat it.
Second, that post title is a reference to the Valentine’s Day party that R & R’s used to have on the campus of the University of Illinois in the early 2000’s. I’ve dated myself so perfectly with this reference that I just had to point it out. If anyone was curious how old I am, now you know…pretty much to the week.
Third, it’s the chard that was bitter. I’m not sure if you’re meant to eat orange peel. At least not in big pieces like that. And not until it’s been deliciously candied. I liked the actual chard, but oh my was that orange peel bitter! I’d say take the orange peel out before you serve this, but D thought it was delicious. He has a higher tolerance for bitterness than I do. Let’s put it this way: if you like IPAs, kale, and rapini, please eat this orange peel. If, however, I just named three things that you choke down, take the suckers out.
