Congratulations to Melissa and Carly. Please send me an e-mail or DM with your address! Thanks to everyone who entered, I am in the works for my next giveaway so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to win something grand. :)
On another note, guess who is, err, uhm, a hypocrite? Well, maybe I’m just having a tough time changing my habits. Yesterday, on my fancy list, I wrote that I need to stop eating late at night. Then what did I do? Well, last night I was invited to dine at Buca di Beppo by the General Manager (who I met at a bar on Saturday, yeah, don’t ask). I don’t typically dine at chain (family style) restaurants, but I thought I’d give it a shot. I arrived on time at 8pm and the host rudely asked me what my business was with the GM. Boy did his attitude change when he realized I was his dinner companion.
Since the restaurant was so busy, he ushered me out of Buca and down the street to the fanciest Italian restaurant in town. What, how did that work?! We didn’t start our meal until 9:17pm with martinis. Yes, what a great appetizer. Then I had a phenomenal lamb pappardelle, so darn good. Fortunately I played the girl card and only took a few small bites. (I don’t eat well in front of new people, but that is another story.) Surprisingly, even though I hadn’t eaten after my workout, I wasn’t starving. We parted ways at 11pm and I journeyed home with my lunch leftovers. Theoretically I ate more than two hours before bed, since I fell asleep at midnight, but I must break this eating late habit! Tonight I’m making a delicious chicken recipe that Kenlie directed me to. And I’ll be doing it before seven thirty!
So, be honest, what is your take on chain restaurants? And when is your typical dinner time?
