こんばんは！Hi, how’s it going?
Today I met my friend for lunch at a “gourmet” burger place called Hopdoddy. I really like the food and restaurant, plus the location we went to is close to the best camera store in Austin (and largest in Texas), Precision Camera and Video. We’re both camera otaku, so it’s fun to check out all the cool camera gear and dream about owning the high-dollar cameras. 📷
It was nice to go out for lunch, which is something that I don’t do often these days. I tend to just work through lunch and put in my hours. It has to do with the fact that I usually just have one meal a day (dinner). While that may seem unconventional, unhealthy, and perhaps even crazy, it wasn’t an uncommon way for people to live in the past.
I did a little bit of research about eating habits, and it seems that we as a society only settled on the “three meals a day” standard within the couple hundred years or so, primarily for economic and employment reasons. And of course the modern food industry pushes us to eat more and more. I’m sure the pharmaceutical companies don’t object to that either.
At any rate, when I do go out for lunch, I don’t mind splurging since I’ve been saving money by not buying lunch each day. The burger place we went to is a bit pricey but the food is so tasty! Today’s burger was a special (not on the regular menu) called the “Lil Brat”. 🍔 Since it’s close to Oktoberfest the burger has a sliced bratwurst sausage with grain mustard on top of the beef patty. It was awesome! And I also got a large order of the Kennebec fries 🍟, which I love.
I’m not entirely sure, but I think that living a more restrictive life helps me appreciate things a bit more… in this case, I really savor the food that I eat, since I don’t eat as often. I need to think about this concept some more! 😊
Well, I hope you had a great day and ate well! 🍴
