Eating and Reading

When I am traveling I am often eating and reading in the evening. As most of my meals are alone when I am on the road I usually have a book in hand. Because of this I usually try and order something that is easily eaten with one hand.

Mr. Greek, Pork, potatoes, Reading MealThe meal that I had last night at Mr. Greek was not too bad as the skewered meat was in small pieces. It is also easy to eat salad with one hand. The potatoes caused a bit of a problem, but I managed.

When Britain Burned the White House, War of 1812, Peter SnowI have been reading When Britain Burned the White House: The 1814 Invasion of Washington by Peter Snow during evening meals this week.

To see more about this book see my post: Historic Book Acquisitions V

It is interesting to read this book here in Toronto as the invasion of Washington was in retaliation of the burning of the capital of Upper Canada in 1813. At that time Toronto was known as York.

Chicken Bacon Wrap, Tim Hortons, Dinner, Reading MealTonight my food was a little easier to eat. I had a Chicken Bacon Ranch Wrap at Tim Hortons. The wrap was in a nice sleeve that made it easy to hold in one hand and eat.

Of course, for those of you who know me it doesn’t take a road trip for me to be reading while eating. Unless I am having meals with friends I usually have a book in hand while eating. Why waste good reading time 🙂

    I’m eating and reading right now. You never know when you’ll be eating alone so I always carry a book with me. 🙂
