It's the end of a long week and your in the mood to go out to eat. You pick your favorite restaurant or buffet and determined to relax with a nice glass of wine or a cold frosty beer. You know you'll have to wait for a table, some establishments offer roasted peanuts while your waiting. Somehow, feeding us peanuts will make us more patient? You step in the restaurant and its freakin a little warm. Where's the air conditioning? In my opinion is they provided some nice cold a/c, the wait wouldn't be so bad, but to wait 45 minutes and the sweat is starting to drip, you have to ask yourself, is my patience worth the meal or you feel like you put in a hard week and just want to be served like a king or queen. Your aware that the food on the menu is designed for a quick microwave cooking or deep fried. You make the decision to stay and wait, your wife gives that look, your kids are whining its too hot. Is it worth all this stress? Will it be a relaxed evening?
You finally get called and almost jump out of your seat with that hand held buzzer buzzing
Aaaaah, a booth, waitress comes, asks if you want to start with drinks, You ask for a beer, or a margherita, menus given out, waitress attempts to give you her attention but you can see she probable has 3 other tables on her mind. We pretend to look at the menu but it always comes down to the same things that we like. Drinks come, beer is lukewarm, Margherita is a little diluted. you tell your waitress, she apologizes and gets a new round on the house.
You order the regular, the blooming onion, deep fried, ton of salt and a creamy dipping sauce kids get the hot buns with a flavored cream cheese butter, beef kabob marinated in sugar and salt, tastes delicious, deep fried catfish with corn meal and kids got hamburger sliders.
Side salads with iceberg lettuce (no nutritional value) with high calorie dressing and croutons. Everything was delicious but was it worth it, healthy? Now you may say yes despite the minor inconvenience of waiting, barely a/c, drinks lukewarm.
NOW, consider this, a home cooked mean with the best ingredients, cooked for you in your home with the a/c blasting, no waiting and nutritious but delicious for half the price!
