She paused, thought for a moment, and then answered. “If it was today, I’d have the hamburger.”

I hesitated. If it was today? If…? But I’m getting ahead of myself.

When I eat out I often narrow it down to two choices, and then ask the server what they recommend. You hear a lot of “everything is tasty here”, but good servers will actually tell you what they think. Great servers will guide you (or perhaps humor you) without deciding for you. “If you’re really hungry, I’d suggest the steak.” But I’d never had anyone make a recommendation based on “if it was today”. I kind of liked it though. So I decided to use it as the name for this blog.

I’ll be honest with you; I’m not exactly sure where this blog is going to go. It will involve travel, although some will be based on past trips. Food and wine are pretty safe bets, along with the occasional encounter with a really interesting beer. And I’m hoping to write about food we cook at home from time to time, but we will have to see if that actually happens.

Enough talk about what I would do if it was today. It is today, so let’s get on with it.
