For me there is something special about eating lunch out, in a sidewalk cafe when I am on vacation. I order what I want, I have a glass of wine or a beer, we relax, we take our time, there is no work waiting when we are done. I am looking forward to being able to travel like this - to live like this - all the time.
The weather can be perfect, or not, it does not matter. Being there, in the now, enjoying life is all that matters.
The food can be average, or exceptional, the relaxation is what I am after.
I have a bad habit, of grabbing lunch and going back and eating at my desk while I work. There is work history behind this, and 40+ years of living that miserable way. Getting away from that is fabulous. Getting away from it is a goal for 2023.
That is how one lunches ... relax and enjoy.ReplyDelete
I need to do this more often,Delete
Breakfast is my favorite meal...but lunch and dinner out??? It's a treat...and as Anne Marie would have told you, a sometime 3-hour ordeal with me.ReplyDelete
Lunch with Mitchel in NYC last summer was 4 hours, without GinDelete
I love long, leisurely lunches out with friends too! They were in short supply during the pandemic but are making a reappearance now at long last!ReplyDelete
Now to change my waysDelete

I cannot remember the last time I had a proper lunch with no need to rush through it or talk about important things but to sit with somebody and enjoy each bite.ReplyDelete
J looked at me yesterday and said, "what's the rush?" He was right.Delete
