|Potato, spinach and tomato soup|
Food Diary (December 12, 2011)
Breakfast: Rolled oats with raisins, sunflower seeds and flax seeds
Lunch: Potato, spinach and tomato soup
Dinner: Polenta with carrot, onion and poached egg
I am slightly embarrassed with the picture, the soup looks like sludge. It tasted much better than it looks. I took the photo in a great hurry and don’t have any other photos to share. Even if I spent more time trying to beautify the photo, I don’t think it would have mattered much! It is what it is and it would need a lot of creativity to beautify it.

The first time I heard about ‘blind restaurants’ was in Hells Kitchen series. Restaurants where diners are served in total darkness is apparently proving to be popular in Europe. The "Dans Le Noir" chain already has restaurants in London, Moscow, Barcelona and St. Petersburg and plans to open one in New York's Times Square this month.
Fifty percent of staff in the "Dans Le Noir" chain are very heavily handicapped. Visually impaired waiters guide patrons past heavy black curtains into a pitch-dark dining room where they are served a surprise two or three-course menu.
Even in some of the best normal restaurants where there is a large brigade of chefs, head chefs and waiters watching your plate of food, unintended objects still manages to find its way into the plate, and sometimes the customer notices. Not a chance of this happening in the blind restaurant. I guess there is no harm done if you don’t know.
