I had a strange turn of events today. Late last night I received a call from one of my best friends asking if I would go with her to the take her in-laws to the immigration office for their naturalization interview. Originally her husband was going to go with them, but he got called into work on an emergency. He works in law enforcement so he could not refuse. So being a good friend I agreed to drive them over there. I did not know how long we were going to be there so I decided to eat my 1st meal of the day in the early morning. Then we went to the immigration place and took care of business, we were there for several hours. Afterward to celebrate the successful passing of the interview we went out to eat. I was skeptical about that event since I was not exactly involved in planning it. We ended up at a real Chinese restaurant, not one of those buffet places. I was a little worried that I would not find anything to eat and prepared to drink some ice tea until I got home. Then I discovered that they served some Japanese hibachi dishes. Chicken, beef or shrimp. To me that means grilled. So I thought the safest would be shrimp since I was afraid that they would marinade the beef and chicken with some starch and or sugar. When the dish came it was somewhat grilled shrimp stir fried with some veggies. It did not have a sauce, just the juice from the veggies. I asked for an empty rice bowl and picked out the shrimp and gave the rest to the others. It tasted good and did not appear to be marinaded with anything. Yes, I stuck out, but my good friend knows and supports my new way of eating. No one made a big deal or mentioned it. I then went home and decided to cook that chicken I bought yesterday in the rotisserie. So as I type another batch is cooking. No movement on the scale today. Thanks for your support everyone.
