Grilled ham slice, hash browns, lettuce wedge with homemade ranch dressing. No dessert tonight. We haven't been particularly hungry recently.

Fondue sounds so good, but I am saving that for Mothers Day as the only one we have around here (The Melting Pot), was $160 after tip.
We have left over pork stew, but have some chicken breasts we have to cook up before they go bad so probably will have chicken Panang. Or at least cook up the chicken to use for Panang tomorrow.

Yep - there's no way around that price at The Melting Pot - it hurts!!!!!!!!!!!!

I ended up getting a fondue pot for Christmas one year and it sure is simple to do it at home but you can only do ONE at a time...so you can have cheese, or you can have some kind of broth to cook your protein in. And don't even say just get two of them -

I'm still having coffee so dinner seems far away right now.

You can send out for ribeye? I never heard of that. How do they cook it?

I just took out a pound of burger. I'm planning on making tacos and wings, but I"m pretty hungry right now, so that burger better hurry itself along or it's gonna get left behind.

That surprised me as well, how do they keep it hot and fresh between cooking it and getting it to your house? I would think it would dry out.

The biggest surprise we ever had on take out was ribs from Portillos, a friend insisted we try them and I was shocked that they were actually tender and tasty! This from a hot dog and burger joint, go figure.
