Once in a while it's easy

Friday, October 30, 2015

I am on a short work trip - drove in this afternoon, will leave tomorrow afternoon, and am staying in a cozy bed and breakfast for one night.

My hosts took me out for dinner tonight, at a microbrewery/restaurant. They had an order of nachos covered in goop, a burger with fries, and a pizza covered in paraphernalia and something called "beer cheese". And beer. Pumpkin beer.

I had grilled lamb chops and veggies, with an extra order of veggies, and an unsweetened ice tea. It was seriously yum, and I don't care if lamb counts as red meat or this week's news about the cancer linkage.

Because at least I didn't have a grease bomb for dinner, like my colleagues did. I wasn't even tempted - once in a while, this food thing isn't all that hard.

    And you will definitely feel better in the morning than your colleagues will!

    Pumpkin beer?! Now, that's going too far into boutique-ism for my taste! When my brother and sister-in-law took me out to eat in the D.C. area, I was served "basil" beer and did not like it. Beer should not taste like other stuff.

    Good for you, Bemused! But you are awfully busy with all this traveling!

    Hey, that's great! I'll wager you felt better than they did the next morning, too.

    Your meal sounds yummy although I don't eat red meat any more! Safe travels! Pumpkin beer!?! I wonder if it tastes as good as it sounds? Probably not, I am usually disappointed in the flavors of beverages!

    Sounds like you had a wonderful dinner. Glad that you found food items that worked with your eating plan. I would have gone for the pumpkin beer however. emoticon

    You made a wise choice. Great on the extra veggies which are very yummy. A word on your colleagues meal, a grease pit of an artery clogging meal. Glad you didn't getcaught up in the insanity of unhealthy eating.
