Anyone who knows me knows I have always loved food! There is no such things as 'bad' pizza even if frozen and I can easily be bribed with carrot cake. In fact in all my years I have only found one food that I wouldn't eat again which is oyster plant! (I had to try it on Weight Watchers--what I didn't do to lose weight!)
Strangely, this mysterious illness I have has had a weird affect on my appetite. It was either that or the food in restaurants isn't tasting as good as it did before I got sick or COVID has invaded what we eat! I do know I have been having 'sticker' shock with menu prices! Emir and I went to the 15th Street Fisheries last Sunday--it was the first time I had been there in about 3-4 years and the prices were almost doubled while the portions looked like half the size! Even--and I say this for the first time in 30 years--when Allen and I went to The Cheesecake Factory the food was disappointing not to mention a 'lunch' portion costing $21! (Without cheesecake!)
The only restaurant we went to where I wasn't disappointed (and we had a 2-4-1 coupon so the price was right!) was the Tequila Sunrise Mexican restaurant which I have been going to over 25 years. Their Seafood Medley (see picture) was tasty, varied, large and a reasonable price!
I have less than 2 years to find a restaurant for my 22nd Leap Year birthday on Thursday, February 29, 2024, but I will continue to look for that special place (though of the last 4 birthdays 3 of the restaurants went out of business so I might not be that welcome by an owner!)
Oh yes, the box of English biscuits that Emir gave me---belated Christmas present--were delicious so my taste buds are still working!
