Poundage

I gained a few pounds in the states.
I have no idea why.Perhaps it was this plate? What is the purpose of the salad with ranch and a taco?
Let me give you a bit of advice, if you find yourself in Vegas and want a buffet, don't go to the Monte Carlo. It was not my choice, but I didn't seem to have a problem loading and reloading a plate. One more bit of advice, don't get the taco. It sucked.
Now, the ranch, I'm not going to lie, I still think it tastes pretty good.
Now let's talk about this. Yes, that is a bowl of butter. Why a bowl of butter? Well, I was having crab legs after my taco and salad. Doesn't everyone eat crab legs after a taco and salad? I was looking for a small ramikan to hold my melted butter, but never found one. So, I did what any warm blooded American would do and poured myself a bowl of butter. Viva USA!
NO, I did not eat it just like that, but I had to have a picture of myself with a bowl of butter.
Let me introduce you to the rest of the plate:
Rice
Sweet and Sour Chicken
Hush Puppies
Fried Shrimp
Boiled Potatoes
Fried Clams

I'm no quitter, I had dessert too.
Yes, that first picture you saw, it was mine.

What happened in Vegas, did not stay in Vegas, it stayed on my Gut!

Peg, way to go. You will walk it all off in a matter of a week or two anyway. That is what I am jealous of. I will have to check out that buffet when I go, I am thinking very soon!

Peggy, so glad you are back home and that you were able to see so many friends and family! I know what you mean about being torn between two countries, I've decided the perfect solution would be two residences and travel between them during the prettiest seasons. I always bring a spare tire back with me after a U.S. vacation, I think it's mandatory! Wish I could have seen you all too.
