A solitary lunch treat today. Grilled Chicken on bed of shredded lettuce sitting on a hot plate, topped with a black pepper sauce, and accompanied with a small bowl of soup and a serving of rice. The chicken was still sizzling when it was served to me. I took a second to admire the dish. It awakened all my senses! Smelled heavenly, looked good and sweet sound of sizzling meat is music to my ears.
As much as I love communal eating, (friends or family), I relish the thought of having a meal by myself. It means, I can go to any place I want without fussy and finicky people saying, “I don’t like that place” “the waiters there have an attitude problem” “The food doesn’t taste good there” “it’s too far!” sheesh! I need to cancel out all this white noise.
