Default I Just Stole $820

OOPS!...My bad

Make that 820 calories

Angie and I went to Applebees tonight...her favorite restaurant...

Why is it her favorite?

because that is the first place we ate during our first date...

We went to the Aerospace Museum....then the San Diego Zoo....then Applebees...her favorite then later that day we went and saw Legends Of The Fall....Brad Pitt did nothing for her

OK...truth...she hates Applebees but thinks Brad is so/so...

Anyway, after not having gone for 13+ years we decided to give it a go, since it is near a Best Buy we wish listed through tonight...

Food was OK...price was Ok...but I loved the fact that they had a calorie list ON THE TABLE!!!

I was deciding between a Bruschetta Burger...Fish and Chips or Margarita Chicken...

while I was figuring it out Angie picked up the list....Burger w/fries 1230 calories...Fish and Chips 1550 calories...Margarita Chicken...730 calories...

I got the chicken and stole 820 calories off the fish and chips I really wanted!!

Wish all places would make it so easy!!!

Gary, you'll be seeing it a LOT more. CA just made it the law! It has to be available now, and on menus in a year or so.

Mamaspank....that was on our first date almost 15 yrs. ago...we just haven't been to an Applebees for around 13 yrs. Last night we ate there then went to "wish" list stuff at Best Buy...cheaper dates

One decision at a time - it makes all the difference!

Way to go Gary!

woohoo! That date sounded like fun. I am confused about the legends of the fall though? It was playing in a theater???? I've seen it. I don't know what to think of it and Brad Pitt does nothing for me.

legends of the fall came out that long ago? seems like yesterday(!) I had such a big crush on Aiden Quinn. One of the first dates bf and I went on was to an Aiden Quinn, Johnny Depp movie, Benny and Joon. I still like that movie.

I didn't know CA made that a law. I wonder if NY will follow. I never thought we'd have all these smoking laws, when I first moved here in the late 80s, seems like every other person smoked where ever they wanted to. Thinking about it, I can see how that would make me opt for lower calorie choices. Too hard to have that "blackout moment", heh heh, where I let myself eat something without thinking of consequences(!)

oh, I should have said, way to go, Gary, too! I'm sure it wasn't easy to pass up the fish and chips!

They list the calorie counts in the menus in NYC and it made decision making so much easier this past week when I was there with a friend. I hope Massachusetts decides to do that sometime too!!!
