So sad. ;)

DH and I went out last night to dinner. We rarely get the chance to go out and eat, since we have 5 kids, but last night it was just the two of us, so we thought we'd celebrate. :love:

Picked a "trendy" restaurant. Both of us were conscious of what we ordered, he's a meat eater, so he chose a steak with lots of grilled onions and peppers. I'm more of a fish and chicken eater, so I ordered the grilled shrimp and grilled chicken. Substituted the mashed potatoes for steamed broccoli. :hun:

Dinner came, we ate :eating2:...it was good...but not terrific. And soon we find ourselves comparing what we ate to how we would have prepared it at home and made it better! AND cheaper! :stir:

Haha yeah- I always say you pay for the service :D

I went to Denny's recently and substituted veggies and they weren't good at all :( They probably were sitting there cooked for hours. I didn't eat them...

I completely agree. Ever since I started eating and cooking healthy, I find that restaurant food never tastes as good as it did, once upon a time.

With one exception: Sushi.
