Week 16. Restaurants. What was your favorite local restaurant as a child? Where was it located, and what was your favorite meal? Did you know the staff personally? What is your favorite restaurant now?
We really didn’t eat out much when I was a kid. We didn’t have a lot of money and there were 4 of us kids. Since I have 5 of my own now, I can understand how expensive it is to feed them all!
My grandparents would take us out every month or two though to the Chinese restaurant in town. It always felt so special to eat out. I loved opening my fortune cookie at the end of the meal.
My best friend growing up was from one of those families that ate out all of the time. Like almost every day or two. And I practically lived at their house when I was in middle school. We all lived about 20 minutes from the nearest town, but there was a small mom-and-pop restaurant called “That Place” that was nearby and I ate there with them pretty often. It was mostly a burgers and sandwiches kind of place – or else big breakfasts in the morning. Nothing out of the ordinary.
We don’t eat out too often now (because of the kids mostly). We actually just went on a date last week – that doesn’t happen nearly often enough!! We ate at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse and the food was TO DIE FOR. Seriously delicious. The steak was so hot that it was still sizzling on my plate when they served it to me. Yum. If it wasn’t horribly expensive, I’d eat there all of the time.
