Thursday marked my two-year anniversary at my job. I can’t believe it has already been two years. Sometimes I still feel like I just started because there’s always so much to learn. I left my last job right before my two-year anniversary, so this officially marks my longest job with one company (post college). To celebrate the milestone, my team went out to lunch at Whitewood Mediterranean Grill in downtown Orlando.
I love Greek food so was excited to try this quick service Greek café. The atmosphere feels like a big city. All the windows are open, so the entire corner café is open air, complete with the breeze going through and all the noises of the street.
All three of us ordered the falafel platter, which comes with your choice of two sides. I chose French fries and stuffed grape leaves for my sides.
I was a little disappointed with my falafel. I think it was overcooked. The falafel patties were just dried out and very hard. The sides, however, were very good. The stuffed grape leaves were my favorite. They were bright with flavor. The fries were topped Greek seasonings.
My dining companions chose hummus and baba ganoush and hummus and tabbouleh as their sides.
I was disappointed by the falafel but do want to return to try their gyro pita. I saw one go by and it looked massive and full of vegetables and meat. This weekend has been full of watching the Olympics. I love hearing our national anthem!
What is the longest you’ve been at one job?
