Joe's Kansas City Barbecue and Fat Matt's in Atlanta, GA

Joe's Ribs
Once in a while a client will look at me with sympathetic eyes when they hear how much I travel.  Oh, if they only knew that I actually enjoy and look forward to the road.  If you are in a client facing role and not asking your clients for restaurant suggestions, you are seriously missing out.  Folks love to talk about their city and have a lot of pride in their home grown favorites.  They are undoubtedly your best source if you are a food hound like me.

Hangover Sandwich (Fried Egg, Bacon, Cheese)

Based on the social media posts I have seen over the past week, I believe there has never been a better time to post about hang over remedies.  I thought I would also post some topics on which we can all agree:
  • Telemarketers suck and the silent feature on our cell phones are magic.
  • Long lines at the store are never ok except if there is some trashy magazine on the rack that you would never buy but you can pick up to pass the time.  
  • Knowing that there is a special place in hell for people who prolong a conference call with way too many unnecessary questions.  
  • Those G.E. commercials are hilarious.
  • Babies and puppies are still the cutest little creatures when they are not peeing on you or your carpet.

Election 2016 and Chicken Braised with Grapes

Chicken Braised with Grapes
Well, that was a doozy.  I am going to offer one thought and then I will shut up about it.  The Democratic party has always been the party of the working class, not the elites.  That narrative was flipped in this past election and here we are.  There is a lot in that statement and there are many reasons why elections go one way or another, but in my mind, that is the heart of the issue.

Now to Chicken with Braised Grapes.   I was at the grocery store when it hit me that I had nothing for dinner and I have been eating out...a lot.  Not healthy.  Technology is a life saver for slackers like me who make a bone-headed move like going to the store without a list.  You know how you read about highly successful people and half of those profiles say that those folks make lists?  Well, I do make lists, just not at critical times like when I am heading out to a place that needs a list.  I make lists of places I want to travel, books I want to read, blogs I need to check out and restaurants to hit in various cities I travel to for work.  Priorities.

So, the NY Times app on my phone saved the day and I found a recipe that would satisfy my sweet/savory tooth.  Click here.
