Recently at work we did a team building day. Rather than go into the office, we toured the city in and then went out to eat. As you all can imagine, when a group goes out, especially a group of co-workers, the most important decision is where to eat. Luckily, we started discussing restaurants a few days before, so I had an idea of the type of food we were going to eat.
The issue was not the food, but the type of food. I have not eaten white bread, regular potatoes or a dessert in a long time. I am all for treating and enjoying yourself when you go out to eat. I especially like ordering meals that I do not make at home. I had onion soup for an appetizer with a half of a loaf of bread. Next, for my main dish, I got grilled chicken that was served with french fries. One of my colleagues ordered a baked potato with his dish that he did not want. Since it was plain, I had that too. For dessert, I got some kind of chocolate soufflé with ice cream on the side.
The food was delicious and I have no regrets about indulging a bit. The last time was a about two months ago at another team function. I stand by my word…as long as they are the exception and not the rule, there is nothing wrong with going out to eat.
