I went through my first buffet line since being banded. I ate a small salad, mashed potatoes and jelly-like brown gravy, tator tot casserole and a chicken breast. Only one trip through. I ate too fast and parts of the chicken meat got stuck but I survived.
Lesson learned: Do not eat at a buffet again. I did not enjoy it.
I also thought the 112th Annual Labor Day celebration/parade was god-awful. I shall not return for the 113th, 114th, 115th, 116th or the 117th annuals either. But I did find some vanilla whey protein powder at Alco of all places.
