Does anyone else have post hike rituals?

I wouldn't exactly call it a ritual... but when I go out for one or more nights, I develop a craving for the worst kinds of fatty foods. French fries are number 1, then fried chicken, or a grilled-cheese sandwich (cheddar, not American cheese, this is important). So generally I try to visit a diner when coming off the trail.

When day hiking, I often make myself a plate of buttermilk pancakes for dinner. If possible, loaded up with blueberries. Hiking makes everything taste 10x better.

A pre-hike ceremony I've engaged in is stopping at a cafe and bringing a latte and some homemade donuts along on early morning hikes. I'll bring the food up to a high point and relax while eating breakfast. Much to my chagrin, the donut place stopped making homemade donuts, so I don't do that anymore.
