Smartphones at the dinner table

Unless I’m at a crowded restaurant on a Friday night, it becomes really obvious to me that the tables around me are quiet when I’m out for dinner. Occasionally I hear some people ordering their food, but after that, it’s quiet. I looked up from my food one day and realized that the diners were too busy poking their smartphones. I happened to catch a glimpse of a few screens as I was leaving the restaurant and saw that people were surfing websites like Musicians friend. Online shopping is a big thing, but I think smartphones are an even bigger thing. Almost everyone with a phone is guilty of getting caught up with technology, but I think there should be a realization that attention at the dinner table is really important whether it’s among friends or family.

Restaurant hopping

With so many restaurants popping up around town, it’s so hard to decide which type of food to try every weekend. I came up with a plan and decided that we would go restaurant hopping. We would try a little of the food here and there and make a decision based on the few dishes we tried. There were more places that made us cringe than smile and polish off our plates. It’s really easy to make your food bland or really overpowering if you don’t watch your ingredients. A lot of curries, especially, have become watered down. I’m starting to think that maybe hopping from one restaurant to another isn’t such a great idea. It’s much easier for me to buy some fresh vegetables and meat and whip up something that has much more flavor.

Recipe hunting

Lately I’ve been inspired to bake and it helps that I have a large packet of caramel candies so I’ve been searching up a lot of recipes with caramel in it. So far I haven’t found a recipe that makes me go “Yes, I need to bake that right now!” but I’m thinking I should use the caramel to dip some apples into or top off on a brownie cake. As usual, I got distracted from my recipe searching and spend hours on websites like guitar center.com before getting back on track. I’m visiting a friend this weekend so I’m either going to randomly choose a recipe and go with it or concoct a recipe and see how it goes!

Winter blues

It’s finally starting to feel like fall! The weather is gray, the fog is out and about, and the clock has been set back by an hour. Of course I’m taking this wonderful opportunity to bake some cookies to get the house warm and toast. I’m thinking of cookies with a lot of chocolate. It’s probably because I don’t have hot chocolate and I really need some now.

I’ve been getting a lot of suggestions to cook noodles and soup. It’s the best thing for the coldest days. Imagine a steaming hot bowl of chicken broth and noodles served with spinach and garlic, ready to be slurped up by you. Yum… I think I might have to make some tomorrow.

Early plans

Christmas isn’t even around the corner and my friend already has her Christmas plans all ready. Over lunch, she told me that she plans to surprise her son with musicians friend contact before treating her family to a surprise breakfast made of waffles and sunny-side up eggs. I asked her if she already has an agenda for Thanksgiving as well, but she said no. I said I didn’t believe her!
