When speaking with others about my lifestlye, I get the "how do you do it" question all the time and the "don't you miss fast food, etc" line. Well, I'd like to share my weekend experience at the Holiday Inn Express business suites with you. Company Christmas party thing, they paid for the room. I do appreciate that too since it would have been a 75 mile drive home late at night and I wouldn't have been able to do the once a year beer consumption thing. Other than the fact that there is just no place like home, the provided breakfast opened my eyes to how spoiled I really am.
The buffet breakfast that was served at the hotel was something even my DOGS wouldn't eat. Soy sausage should be against the law! Powdered eggs are a travesty of life and fake butter with fake cream should not be allowed for human consumption! There is really something to be said about good old fashioned home cooking. Soft and crunchy crusted fresh from the oven bread with free range chicken eggs and a hunk of the hog I just butchered, fresh cream and butter made from that same cream, that's how I do it and nope, I sure don't miss that commercial pre packaged food! Suffering thru that meal made me appreciate the time I get to spend in my own kitchen and having the opportunity to grow my own foods and butcher my own meats.
Ah, I shouldn't be so hard on poor Holiday Inn Express, at least they serve Arabica coffee! They brew it way too strong but it's still good coffee.
The Christmas party was average but the beer was free. The caterer over cooked the prime rib but we lived thru it. We're good until next year ;)
It's good to be home!
