On Fridays Tim always works up in Chattanooga, so lately I have been tagging along. Ostensibly I go to “work” in Starbucks, but really it’s an opportunity to leave my house. I think it’s important that once in a while that I leave the house, put on a bra and see real people.
Post-Starbucks it’s our Friday night date night, which in our circles means grocery shopping. I found this pig in the store and that set the tone for the evening. I needed meat. ( I won’t say TWSS. I just can’t. Is that over yet?)
Tim and I aren’t big people people. I mean, we like people...but in small doses. Waiting 45 minutes for a seat in a crowded restaurant on a Friday night is typically not my idea of a good time. But tonight, it worked. We went to Chili’s and split ribs and a steak. Amen.
l ordered the sirloin steak and it came with loaded mashed potatoes, broccoli and garlic bread. There was the option on the menu to make it a “lighter meal”. Any guesses how they do that? They just take half your meal away.

you can just have the steak and broccoli.
I’m all for healthy choices, but shouldn’t they at least give you a discount? Or add something extra in there like a salad? Boo, Chilis. Boo on you. I ended up just going for the whole shebang since I was sharing it with Tim anyway. He was kind enough to return the favor with some ribs and French fries.
Do you ever order off the “lighter menu” in restaurants?
It’s probably about 50/50. Usually if I go out I’ll order whatever I want, but a lot of the time the nicest seafood is on the low calorie menu, so I might get that.
How was your Friday night?
Out of 100, I give it a solid 90. Next time, I want a margarita with my steak.
