Variety of Taste

I like food. Anyone who knows me probably figured that out easily. I'm not a very picky eater, I eat almost anything. But I do have my favorites. One of my favorite things when eating out is getting sampler platters or a pick-your-own-combo types of meals so I can get a little bit of this, a little bit of that, etc. Maybe it makes feel like I'm getting more for my money... I'm a frugal minded person thanks mom so that may be a contributing factor.

Right now our neighborhood Applebee's has a Three Course Classics deal going on where you choose your appetizer, meal and dessert for a decent price. Its just the right amount of everything. They've got a pretty good variety of things to choose from too. I got the Fiesta Lime Chicken the other day and it was soooo yummy! Food with a Mexican flare is usually one of my faves - maybe its the 1/4 Hispanic in me, I dont' know. I also love dessert.... and I could easily get carried away and eat a full sized one - but shouldn't. So with this meal your dessert is in a large shot glass. Its just the right size to curb that sweet tooth desire but not so much that you wished you'd refrained cause you're so full!
While we were squeezed together in the back of a suburban on the way to dinner at the church retreat this past weekend, Sniz and I discussed how much we liked Applebee's and decided we should go sometime since our husbands aren't huge fans of it.... so Sniz - let me know when you want to go out!

*Could you tell I was hungry when I wrote this?

OK... the bourbon street steak is one of my favorite items at any restaurant.

ok, so her hubby doesn't care for it. Mine just usually has other places he'd rather go. Sorry for the incorrect info.

Hello! Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your comment. I have to say that I LOVE your blog name! How clever is that?

Chili's had a deal like that not too long ago. My husband and I shared it and it was plenty of food. Yum!

I'm so there, Wani. How about next Monday?

I've only been to an Applebee's once (10 years ago in Ohio) and I was good.

Yes I'm a deprived northern Canadian!!

You know that I'm not a big Applebee's fan, but I do have very fond memories of the restaurant, nonetheless. When one of our youngins' was wee little, he or she (geez...I cannot remember which one it was--help me out Sniz) used to refer to it as "Apples & Bees."

I've been wanting to try Applebee's! I love those three course deals because I always want dessert but don't want to pork out on it. I read thsi last night when I was really hungry and I wanted to go! :o)...just gotta get a babysitter!
