Having just returned from a vacation that was much enhanced by visiting two fine restaurants that I'd first discovered on Chowhound, it occured to me that coming to this site has changed my life in several ways.
1. As I mentioned, I have a great source to find good food, and I use my fellow 'hounds postings to locate the good stuff.
2. When I visit restaurants that are interesting I think I pay more attention because I may well decide to post about the place and I need to remember details.
3. On this trip, I found myself returning to those good restaurants, so that I can write more complete reports.
4. I bought a George Foreman grill. I know some of you don't like them, but for a person living in an apartment, it sure beats the oven broiler, and I've been amazed by the things I can cook with it. Until I read the discussions here, I never would have considered getting one.
Perhaps my life has been changed in other ways that I can't remember, but for these four I have to say thanks! Has your life been changed by Chowhound?
