Today is another milestone in my life. Yep, it’s my birthday. I will probably go out to eat. Isn’t that what we do on birthdays? We have had a tradition in our family since our kids we old enough to go out to eat. We always allowed the birthday person to pick where they wanted to eat. One year when our daughter was three, we were in Kingston, NY on assignment with IBM. We asked her what she wanted for dinner and she immediately said Kentucky Fried Chicken. We tried to persuade her to pick one of the restaurants around such as an Italian restaurant as there were many good ones in the area. But she wanted KFC. So we got KFC and sat in our motel room and ate KFC. I’m not sure why that stuck in my mind with all the other birthdays we celebrated at various restaurants, but it adds to the memories of good times and good food. Both of us are on diets today. I’m not sure what that says about KFC but it does say that going out to eat a lot will pave the way for overweight and obesity. Caution is in order as I will decide where I want to go for my birthday dinner or lunch where I can eat ‘on plan’.
