She had a chicken Caprese sandwich, sweet potato fries and a glass of wine.

The check was $46 before tip.

The onion rings and booze were really good.
but...
The fries were mealy and limp
The burger was dry

SO liked her chicken sandwich.

They have a grand total of four deserts on the menu.
I almost choked on hearing the total cost of your tab. OR, burger and fries, chicken sandwich and SP fries, a beer and a glass of wine for $46?

This is one of the major reasons I cook my own food, because I enjoy cooking and because I can't stand outrageous prices dining out. I like restaurants because they allow you to explore new food without needing to become an expert, and then if you like the food you can get on the Internet and figure out how to duplicate the same thing, probably better, and at a lower cost.


I nuked leftovers. It was okay but not great. I'd rather cook and eat freshly prepared food.

Since it's cold and flurrying, I made chili. Nothing better in this type of weather.

I think the Dragon movie just came out in the U.S. I was given the 3 books for Christmas, but haven't had time to open them yet. I said I would close my eyes during the last 5 minutes of the movie, and "avoid" learning the ending. Heheh. I Honestly thought the book series was like an Ann of Green Gables/ Disneyesque type of series, set in Contemporary Sweden. Boy, was I wrong on this. Now I really want to read the books all the way through. Good movie, not a family film.

I'm a GWTDT fan. I'm glad I never heard of the movies before I read all three novels in the Millennium trilogy. There's another topic on the forum (starting here and various discussion later in the topic) that goes into it more and I don't feel like typing a lot in the 2nd Jan 2012 what's for dinner topic.

It's surprising that I encounter discussions about GWTDT wherever I go. I'm glad I caught into the enthusiasm even before the second novel was translated into English and published. I read the debut novel and had to wait until publishing caught up before I could read the second and third in the series.

We had leftover prime rib, with mashed potatoes and gravy, salad and roasted brussels sprouts. All kinds of chocolate and candy around here, so we don't need actual dessert :)

Was really tasty and will definitely have it again!
