The grownups go OUT TO DINNER!
So the childrens have been gone for a week. As I was going back through my pics to see what kind of food I stuffed in my face since then I realized how much we had eaten out in the past few days.
All in all, it’s probably been about 50/50 of eating out and eating at home, but that is a pretty drastic difference from the norm.
For one (I know this may come as a shock to you) but kids are picky. GASP! And they don’t finish their food. A LOT (a concept that is lost on me.) Either way, paying for a meal that they don’t finish times two gets pricey.
For two (poor grammar but I’m going with it) its just not all that great for you to eat out for tons of meals. (Lots of reasons why, don’t really want to get into it, blah, blah, blah)
So because of that, we did our darnedest to eat most of our meals at home. But now that the kids aren’t here its been a little bit easier to just do some food out a little more often.
That’s a mouthful.
Here we go.
After Paul’s 2nd triathlon this summer (good job HONEY! everyone is still waiting for your recap BTW…….) we went home changed and then went to grub before we went to see a movie.
Since I want to hit up a lot of my favorite places before we move, we went to Chipotle.
Had to get a close up of those chips. I mean honestly, that salt! Kill me now. (from happiness) (and maybe high blood pressure)
Then we went to go see The Dark Knight Rises and had some popcorn. I splurged and had a Diet Coke. Bad Cinnamon!
Sorry there is no pic of the popcorn. I know, I am devastated too.
On Sunday after church we decided to use one of our Groupon type coupons (I just want to call them all Groupons even though they are not) for the Coho Cafe. We shared our meals and they were nice enough to split the plates for us. Love it when restaurants do that. They were also just at the end of brunch so they gave us some bonus mini cinnamon rolls for free. SCORE.
Salmon cesar salad and the yummiest chicken sandwich I have had in a long time. It had sprouts and avocado and “mushroom spread”? Whatever it was it was amazing. I want another one NOW!
Monday morning I had my perfect oatmeal from Starbucks
Then on Monday night I met up with my cutie friend Marjan for some walk n’talk and eat n’shop!
I had three tacos (shrimp, carne asada and chicken) but couldn’t finish them b/c of the yummy guac with plantains that we had. I thought the salt and pepper shakers were really neato for some reason? Idk…maybe I was just hungry.
and fro-yo. Obvs.
How often do you eat out?
Were you a picky eater when you were a kid? Or are you still?
