Mystery Remains Unsolved – The Case of the Missing Ground Beef Patty from Olive Garden – Chelsea – Our Bichon Frise Pet – Appears to be Innocent But Remains as a Person of Interest –

Circumstances: Steve ordered a takeout ground beef patty at Olive Garden restaurant for Chelsea, the household pet.

Said ground beef patty was transported in a Styrofoam box from Olive Garden to the home of Steve and Carol Ann. Half of the ground beef patty was cut in pieces and presented to Chelsea on a paper plate. Another quarter of the patty was likewise cut up and given to Chelsea as a night snack. The remaining one-quarter ground beef patty, intended as breakfast for Chelsea, was reported missing by the pet owners. Chelsea, although appearing innocent, was designated as a person of interest in this case.

Investigation revealed that no Styrofoam box could be found in any part of the refrigerator. A search of the household trash proved that it held no Styrofoam box of any kind. A search of the entire home turned up no Styrofoam box. Pet owners, Steve and Carol Ann, stated that Chelsea had never eaten a Styrofoam box before and they doubted that she ate this one.

Since there was no evidence that a Styrofoam box from Olive Garden containing a ground beef patty ever existed, this case was closed and filed under unsolved mysteries.

Carol Ann donated her leftover pasta with marinara sauce to Chelsea for breakfast.

    That was very generous of Carol Ann to sacrifice her pasta for a sweet pup.

    • She liked it, too. She surprises me.

      The mystery has been solved. The box was hiding in plain sight in the refrigerator. We were looking for a white Styrofoam container, but it was black and quite different from my white box that contained my leftover pasta and marinara sauce. When I pulled out a quiche our neighbor baked for us, there it was underneath looking not a bit like the other box. We obviously saw it when we put it in the refrigerator, but, well, we forgot that it was black and made of something different. Tonight she will have her quarter ground beef patty for a snack. Ha! Blessings to you, Patti…
