Still alive and kicking, Vegas style!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted. I’ve been busy with work, including a business trip to Vegas where I completely refrained from gambling. I did not, however, refrain from gorging myself. We had a dinner meeting at the buffet at M Hotel, a lone hotel about ten miles south of the strip.

They have these huge television screens that show Food Network.

First plate: prime rib, chile verde pork, various seafood, sausage and sauerkraut, and sushi. Sushi is the only disappointing thing on the plate, but that’s to be expected.

Second plate (carbs): spaghetti and (giant) meatball, roasted vegetables, paella, mashed potatoes, and mac n’ cheese. The meatball was delicious, made from the finest, fattiest ground beef I’m sure.

Plate three: oxtail and short ribs. Nothing special here but still good.

I’m not much of a dessert person, but I was away from home, so I decided to try some things.

Plate four: chocolate souffle, fruit and custard tart, cookies and cream, and creme brulee.

This isn’t going to be the best food you’ve tasted, but it’s pretty darn good for a buffet. It’s only twenty five bucks, and it comes with free beer and wine. Beer is limited to Pabst Blue Ribbon or their house brew. Their wine is house wine as well, but it’s included with the price of a meal so why not?

This was my breakfast the next morning. I had no problem skipping lunch for the week.
