Hotel Cooking

My husband and I are in beautiful Scottsdale, AZ for a FileMaker Developer Conference. (That is FileMaker DevCon to you techies. ) Alex is in conferences all day, while I am enjoying my time reading, exercising and swimming at the hotel. Unfortunately since I am not a conference “attendee”, I am on my own for food. I can be resourceful, I can survive.

When we arrived, we went to the grocery store and picked up a few snackie foods, something to get me by during the day. We then went to our hotel to check in, much to my surprise, NO MICROWAVE! For breakfast I had Quaker Oatmeal, that I made by heating water in the small coffee pot. It was delicious, except I had to eat it luke warm, because there where no utensils, and I had to use my fingers. Yeah I am roughing it.  Lunch consisted of Yoplait Yo-Plus yogurt (eaten with my fingers and for digestive health) and cheese slices with Toasted Wheat Thins chips, not too terrible. I did call the front desk and ask if there was a microwave for their guests to use, well lo and behold they delivered one to my room.

Tonight’s meal is looking more promising; we are going out to eat with my husband’s boss and his wife. Chart House Restaurant was recommended to his boss; I checked out the menu, everything sounds like it is going to be delicious; I just wonder if it will cost both arms and legs to eat.
