“What do you want for dinner?” A loaded question this can be. Make no mistake, proceed carefully with the response when the query is posed by your spouse. Do I suggest leftovers? No. Pick up something? Not tonight. Go out to eat? Usually a safe bet. Do we want to include friends? Yes! What do I feel like having? Oh my.
The decisions have only just begun. Chain restaurant? Local cuisine? American, Mexican, Italian, Greek, English, Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Vegan (HA, made you look) or something else? Family friendly or not? Happy hour? Of course. Then there is the menu. More choices and decisions. It’s a wonder we eat at all. But when we do…
Where: Chelsea’s Kitchen in Phoenix, AZ
When: Friday after work
Who: Two couples and adult conversation (not to be confused with mature conversation, BTW).
Drinks: Dirty Martini, Gin & Tonic (Tanqueray), Zinfandel wine (Seghesio).
Dinner choices: Two filets of steak (tenderloin), roasted chicken and beef short ribs.
Dessert: Build your own sundae, key lime pie
Coffee: French press (of course)
After Dinner Drink: Double shots of Jameson Irish Whiskey, over ice (the look that the wives present when the whiskey is served – priceless).
Good food, drink and company! Good choices.
What’s for breakfast? Yet another decision that can wait until we are hungry. Only hours away, breakfast is.
