Starting from the point of a young child, I have always loved enjoyable food. Maybe it was the smell of smells that sailed from the living room into the kitchen after my Dad had whipped up something delicious, or the way chocolate melted on my tongue that caused my love to flourish; nonetheless, the love has since grown and extended itself! I’ve been fortunate to get a job that allows myself and others to taste and write about all my favorite foods across the country. Which at often times is hard to do because there is genuinely little I do not like. However, my greatest food complaint would have to come from an area that genuinely isn’t food-based at all however does reflect on the eating establishment I was located in at the time. It was an enjoyably cool, fall afternoon and my next task was to taste a meal at a local eating establishment, which was popularly known for its chili with lean meats and fresh beans. I walked in gleeful however I have to admit, my excitement dwindled a bit once I sat down and felt an uncomfortable heat in the air. The living room wasn’t near my table so I think the cooking flames couldn’t have caused it; nor was the oil furnace near my seat however somehow sweat seemed to accumulate around my forehead and back areas. All I could guess about was, “how am I about to eat moderate chili when my body temperature alone could scramble eggs?” Guzzling water to stay hydrated took up almost all of my appetite. I couldn’t help however watch the breeze outside and looked forward to leaving already. Although the chili was yummy, it tasted 100 times better later that night as my supper leftover when I was resting at modern home in my cool living room. Note to eating establishments, room temperature needs to be comfortable and cooler when serving a boiling dish you’re known for!
