Today's (weird) menu:
coffee with a teeny container of half and half and 2 hard boiled eggs. (Actually, I only ate half of the second egg, because it tasted funny. The hotel breakfast had no other protein whatsoever, no veggies, no decent fruit).
half of a ready-to-drink protein shake (did not have time to drink the second half)
salad with strange clumps on top (Went into a diner, tried my "order a sandwich as a salad" technique, which was listed on the menu as "chicken breast with Gouda and tomatoes" but the chicken breast was chopped into tiny bits with the cheese melted on it, dropped on a bed of greens and cukes, which caused the cheese to solidify into a large clump full of chicken bits. Tasted ok but rather interesting to eat)
Americano with sugar free pumpkin spice syrup and a splash of half and half
Dinner was also rather pathetic, as we stopped at another diner and I ordered a "steak flatbread melt" without the flatbread, over lettuce, and there was just not a lot of meat and the cheese again solidified and there were a TON of grilled onions... Lesson learned, when ordering sandwiches as salads, tell them to leave off the cheese.
We were supposed to be home hours ago, but a combination of detour, lollygagging, bad weather, and tiredness got us one more night away from home. We'll get back in the morning after a trip to the park. We did have a great time though and enjoyed some lovely scenery together. G'nite!
