a feast…..

Whenever I go to China, food is always something that I dread.  For some reason, when I encounter food outside of the “normal” American channels (KFC, McDonalds, Pizza Hut, etc), there is always trepidation, and sometimes regurgitation.

It’s not that the food is bad in the sense of quality or safety, it just doesn’t fit well with my prodigious waistline.  It might be the smells, or seeing the food live before eating it, or the chicken foot propped up against the sidewall of the soup bowl.  Let’s just say the food doesn’t fit my eye.

Now, I’ve had plenty of good food in China.  And some of it was real Chinese.  I’ve had some pretty tasty street food as well.   But, I’m in Haining and my options are limited.

So, I decided to make sure I had a feast for at least one day.100_0612 

I’m just getting ready to devour some Klement’s Summer Sausage with some aged cheddar cheese and some Premium saltine crackers.  As you can see, this meal is elegantly presented on a Jack Links beef jerky bag.  I’ve decided to pair it with a sugar free raspberry flavored water.

I’m sure you’re jealous.
