Not About Food 87

ever wish you could lower your food standards?

I am at times, disappointed in restaurants, seemingly a lot more than my fellow diners. I'm not one of the "if it's a chain I won't touch it" persons....and am often quite happy with very simple food. But it seems like i'm regularly sitting there in a restaurant while others rave, and i'm thinking...."I could have cooked this better at home" or..."why did I order this? I should know better" sort of thing.

i'm happy that I have a knowledge about food, and know what certain things should taste like etc....but at times i've wished that I was a little more green, and could be impressed by that risotto or pasta, especially when i've doled out a nice portion of my hard earned cash over it.

Anyone else feel this way?
