What A Night!

Tuesday Dinner Round One:

 It was quite the night we had!!!  Okay well by the time this blog is posted last night was quite the night we had.  So I talked my husband into taking a quick trip to Costco with me....I know I know it is so much more fun with a girlfriend but you can't always locate an unoccupied friend!  Anyway so this quick 45 minute trip to Costco ended up taking 3 plus hours out of the house.  Just as soon as we left Costco I had a brainaic thought to stop at one more place for only 10 minutes but it was just too long for our starving tummies.  After much debate we finally decided on stopping in at Cheddar's.  It was John's first time and I had only them once before, 10 years ago in Illinois.  So the atmosphere was nice enough when we walked in but to our dismay the evening was all down-hill from there.  Immediately we devoured our honey butter croissants while waiting for our soup and salad.  My baked potato soup came and it was completely cold, not even lukewarm cold!  John's lettuce tasted dead!  Okay okay no biggie, just have them fix it and we can deal with it.  Then dinner came and John's beef roast ended up being pork and fat on a plate.  But the chef/manager was like oh well it is a packaged veal as we don't carry pork.  WHAT?  Veal? He ordered beef roast...no where on the menu did those animal activists read they were eating veal.  (BTW we are not extreme or even picky about the type of animal meat we eat but it was a WTH moment I had to point out).  I had ordered shepherds pie since all I wanted was a simple home-cooked comfort dish.  Right before my eyes appears peas, corn, and carrots mixed in heavy duty taco-seasoned meat on a plate and a large scoop of mashed potatoes and crispy onion straws thrown on top. Not baked or even a pie, just thrown on a plate.  What happened to the shepherd's pie I ordered and what is this 1/4 inch thick red seasoning on top?  Chili powder? Hmmmm it was definitely time to cut our losses and leave.  After offering to pay for only the food we consumed we politely left.  

Tuesday Dinner Round Two:  

Can't get any worse right...we are moving on to a new place.  Pei Wei here we come!  "How can I help you?" "I'd like a chicken teriyaki bowl" "Okay sir, we are out of rice would you like noodles instead?"  "Excuse Me?"  "We are out of rice".......Really how is an ASIAN restaurant out of rice???????

Tuesday Dinner Round Three:

Finally settled in at Kerbey Lane Cafe.  Yay we got the giant both that I could literally lay down in.  Well I think it is time for a white strawberry sangria after this night.  At least the alcohol will numb my sore throat were as the cold soup could not.  Delicious omelet....yes after all that might as well order some reliable breakfast food....buttermilk pancakes and coffee.  WAIT MY SANGRIA!  Oh I only got half way through it!  Why did that FLY just CHOOSE to do a NOSEDIVE in MY DRINK!!!!!!!!!!

On our way home.....
