‘What’s for dinner?,’ first question Mr asks when he returns from office. No niceties, no sweet gestures - just straight to the point. Well, you must have guessed, Mr is a big time foodie. And, so am I. We have gone to great lengths to eat what we want - once we drove in a snow storm to eat Choley Bhature. We battled through slippery roads and winds gusting to 35 miles an hour. Our dedication to food and food fixes have created a lot of mess and food fights - snatching the last bite of pizza, emotional blackmail over late night ice-cream are rather common between us.
Our arduous journeys to food have resulted in many adventures too, but our latest food adventure was simply out of the world country. Why country? Read on…
Mr loves McDonald’s french fries. Why not? It is crispy, yummy and when the weather is great, those piping hot delicacies are heavenly. So, few weeks back when we were vacationing in the Thousand Islands region in upstate New York, perfect weather and gorgeous scenery whetted his ‘French Fries’ appetite. He parked the car and typed McDonald’s in the GPS. It was sunny and I couldn’t see the GPS screen from where I was sitting. ‘It’s 5 miles from here,’ he said and starting driving. It was a pleasant drive, even I was thinking of getting a Frappé Mocha for myself.
We drove up a beautiful bridge and after driving for some 3 miles, we saw a check post. ‘What’s up there?’ I asked. ‘Let’s see’ and he drove thinking it was some sort of police checking for runaway criminals. As we headed towards the bee-line of cars, I glanced up and spotted a sign saying US Immigration. What!?! ‘We are on US-Canada Border,’ I shouted. ‘What did you type in GPS?’ I asked. I rotated the screen and the address was - McDonald’s, Kingston/Toronto. ‘What were you thinking? Didn’t you check the city, state or country? Kuch toh padha hota!’ ...was all I could say before bursting into laughter.
‘I just wanted to have some french fries.’ he said with childlike innocence and turned around his car. So, after this near cross-country adventure to curb his food fix, the running joke in our home is -
Immigration Officer - Purpose of your visit, Sir?
Mr - Eating French Fries!
The story doesn’t end here. On the second day of our trip, we wanted to have a nice meal. Mr dressed in his new sports blazer and I put on my polka dotted dress, and we headed in search of a nice restaurant by the lake. Roads were so jam packed that it reminded us of Delhi-Gurgaon border. We got stuck in traffic and ended in a ugly debate. It was then and there I decided to download an app on my iPad to put an end to our food fiascos. With two back to back incidents, I wanted a permanent solution to our food fixes. I don't want any such mess on our upcoming trip to India. ‘Let’s try TinyOwl,’ Mr said. ‘It’s creating ripples in the blogging world, and many bloggers are gaga over it.’ And, this is how I got my first brush with TinyOwl’s wisdom.

Easy navigation of the menu is what won my heart - you can plan an entire menu starting from starters to main course to beverages to desserts. Scroll right-left or up-down!
