Never Be Afraid to Try New Restaurants and Cuisines
When I was growing up, my mother meat and potatoes for dinner each night. Once a week, we would order pizza from the same pizza place. I never even tried Mexican food until I was 18 years old! I loved it and that led me on a quest to try all of the different types of cuisines out there and I have to say that I love almost all of them. When trying a new cuisine, I don't always love the first dish I try, but I find that after trying a few dishes, I find one that I fall in love with. I think that trying new food frequently can be a great adventure that adds some zest to your life. I plan to post about many foods I have tried and plan to try on my blog, so come back soon!

When you visit a Chinese buffet with a group of people, you'll typically start making trips up to the buffet soon after you get to your table — and not stop until you're full. Not every Chinese establishment has this approach, though. At some restaurants, you'll order from a menu. As a way of starting a meal at this type of eatery, it can be fun to order a large serving of something that you'll share with your table.
When you visit a Mexican food restaurant, some foods will definitely be familiar. You'll obviously recognize the salsa, the tomatoes, and the tortillas! However, there may be some ingredients listed on the menu or just present on dishes that you do not immediately recognize. Knowledge is power, so here's a look at some of those ingredients.
Tomatillos are commonly used in sauces and salsas, especially salsa verde. They are green, round vegetables with a thin husk.
Ordering takeout or going out to eat can make dinner plans a lot easier, plus it's less work for you. If you want to do something different and go out to dinner, you may want to think about ordering food from your local Chinese restaurant. Chances are there is at least one option within your neighborhood. You'll not only get a delicious meal, but also you'll be doing your part to support a business.
If you enjoy eating Italian food, you may love the texture of your pasta when it's cooked al dente. The firm nature of the pasta when it's cooked in this manner helps to make it pleasing to the palate. When you order a pasta dish at a local Italian restaurant, you might want to specify to your server that you want the pasta cooked al dente. Doing so can increase the likelihood that you're happy with the texture of your meal — and, by extension, the entire meal itself.
