Why do I do this to myself?

Got taken to a steakhouse for a belated birthday dinner by Buzz the Guy who lives the Love Shack in my Driveway.
So I decide on Outback, as I was not in the mood to go downtown. The server forgot about us for a very long time, so the manager became our server and we got a free appetizer.

Oh, this would be the Cheesy Fries. Ranked the WORST FOOD, by several publications. I have never had them, probably won't again. So, good yet sooooo bad.

All for myself, as the guys ordered the Bloomin Onion.
Then I ordered the Prime Rib, Medium, what I got was cold and raw, so back it went. Got it back overdone, but still eatable. I was getting full so I saved it for Logen, along with the rest of my fries.

Then the topper was the Carrot Cake sans raisins. Yipee, I hate raisins in food, I like them out of the box, not in my plate. yuck.

At this point I can barely breathe or move.It actually hurts to move... awesome.

So, then we head to Wal-Mart for supplies. Coconut Smelling Cheap Shampoo and Conditioner for Star, expensive conditioner for Mamma, Silver Polish for her show halter, Baby Wipes for ear and muzzle clean up at the show. I had a list, I stuck to it, and got outta there for less than $20 bucks.

Once again.. awesome....

Today I am miserable, still reeling from the after effects of carbo loading....

It was totally worth it, but why do I forget how this feels until the next time?

Ha! I do that too. I love the 'stuff' off of the bloomin onion, but not the onion. My plate usually looks like someone stuck a fire cracker in the middle of an onion when I get through with it. I ADORE their bread, there are NO crutons in the world better than the Outback's, and by the time my ribs or burger comes to the table, I am already miserable! Trying to avoid that place right now. Just way to tempting and no way to be good in there!

Have a great weekend!

I've never had those fries, but have heard of them and want to try them! The meal sounds delish! You deserve it!

Hugs, Sharon

P.S. Thank you so much for coming to the wedding and bringing Michelle! It was so, so great seeing you both! I just talked to the honeymooners today and they are driving back home. We will be seeing them tomorrow when they open their gifts. :0)
