I definitely fall into the live to eat category. I have no willpower when it comes to food. Most of the time.
I love food. I heart it with a passion It will eventually be my undoing. I really need to stop eating for about six months or so. Or maybe check myself in to a food rehab clinic. Do they have those? If not, why not?
But that’s not what the question was. How far would I travel for the best meal of my life? To the closest restaurant, of course.
The best meal of my life is always the next one. I’m not a very picky eater so I don’t need to travel far to find a restaurant I like. About the longest I’ve ever driven to get to a restaurant I really wanted to eat at is about 30 minutes, because that’s how close the nearest Joe’s Crab Shack is.
I heart crabs. Well, the kind you eat, anyway. Frankly, the area I live in is so saturated with restaurants I don’t have to travel far to find a restaurant I like. Were that not the case I probably still wouldn’t travel more than 30 minutes to get a good meal. I mean, honestly, is any type of food worth all of the gas money you’d be spending to get there? Not nowadays. Nowadays you must have stellar credit, take out a second mortgage, and donate one of your children’s kidneys just to be able to afford gas.
What about you, dearest reader? What’s your favorite restaurant?
