I'm Back

From Golden Corral, that is.

I tried for the ribs, but to be honest with you, I hate standing in long lines for food, especially when there is only one server for the fantastic, very popular, limitless ribs feast station.

I ended up getting a lot of other stuff instead, including pulled pork, meatloaf, some kind of chicken and rice thing, an extra large baked chicken leg, green beans, steamed broccoli and cauliflower, mashed potatoes and gravy, pot roast, corn bread, a roll, something I thought was labeled sweet potato surprise (which surprised me by being closer to scalloped potatoes), cooked spinach and ham (the juice of which ran all over my plate and soaked into my other food), and macaroni and cheese. That was just the first two plates.

Then, even though I knew I shouldn't, the dessert counter beckoned. For some reason, the dessert area always looks like a hoard of ravenous hogs has been at it, with food strewn everywhere and the various pies, cakes, puddings and tarts unappetizingly mauled into an unidentifiable mess.

Still, I attempt to salvage what I could from the remains, and walked back to our table with a plate of carrot cake, white vanilla cake, a chocolate tart, fudge balls rolled in peanuts, soft serve chocolate ice cream, and several chocolate cup cakes. I had Halloweens as a kid that were less lucrative.

By the time it was all over I promised myself (again) that I would never eat at a smorgasbord, buffet style restaurant again.

But for now, I've broken out the giant commercial-sized bucket of antacid tablets and am prepared for a long, long night.
