Le Cordon Bleu for you?

The folks who run the statehouse cafeteria put up a couple of tables, covered them with white table cloths and set up a buffet line for fancy salads today. Diners can choose chicken or shrimp as a final topping, which as you can see in the picture is heated for the diner by the staff with the fancy hats. Adding to the ambiance (?), there’s a boom box behind the tables playing music. A Michael Jackson tune was blasting when I walked by at about 11:30. The salad costs $6.45. The smell of cooking shrimp wafting through the building: priceless.
