• I wish I could remember the name of the company that makes this delicious snack pack, but I can’t. All I know is that I bought it in the produce section at Tom Thumb, in the section where they carry the pre-packaged salads. It came with carrot sticks, snow peas, Colby cheese cubes and ranch for dipping. I could seriously eat an entire bag of the snow peas. SO good!
• Chili dogs from Burger Basket & Grill. Had lunch there with P last weekend. He had the cheeseburger & fries (not pictured). Always good food and the owner is really nice. He reminds me of a Greek Stephen Colbert.
• Strawberry ice cream cone…in a cup from Burger Box. I like the crunchiness of the cone, but their strawberry ice cream always seems to be a little too soft to be scooped successfully, so I end up just putting it all in a cup, just to be on the safe side. Gotta love the huge chunks o’strawberry!
• Grilled chicken sandwich from Chick-Fil-A. The Honey Roasted BBQ Sauce MAKES the sandwich. SERIOUSLY delicious!
• P’s plate a la the Mandarin Chinese Buffet in Fort Worth. It looks like he got some fried wontons, fried rice, spicy shrimp and sesame chicken. Unfortunately, he’s not a big fan of Chinese, but I love it!
• Breakfast chili dog from QuikTrip. Yes, I said breakfast! What? So sometimes I like lunch for breakfast, sue me.
• Cheese biscuits from Red Lobster. *sigh* Sinfully delicious. Seriously.
• Cheeseburger & fries from Burger Box.
Pizza Hut had Pizza Hut Pete, but I still love me some Pizza Inn JoJo (named after the originator, Joe Spillman), They brought him back this year for their 50th anniversary!! (as opposed to the more “modern” faceless pizza chef they were currently using. HATE him!)
• Spaghetti & meat sauce from Joey’s Pizza. Soooo good!
• Shrimp feast from Red Lobster. The shrimp scampi was the best part of it. Since they discontinued breading their own shrimp, I no longer care for their friend shrimp in any format. Just NOT good. The shrimp linguini was good too!
• Half sausage, half pepperoni pizza from Pizza Inn. Good times. Takes me back to Friday night in the 70’s & 80’s.
• Meatloaf sandwich from the Dixie House Cafe. Comes with REAL french fried potatoes. Sooo good! First (but not the last) time I’d ever ordered it. Recommend!
• Spicy chicken strips & Cajun rice from Church’s Fried Chicken. I’m normally NOT a fan of Church’s, but there is one near my house (new), and I didn’t feel like making lunch. I was pleasantly surprised at how GOOD it was. I hadn’t eaten there in like 10+ years, so it was a nice surprise. I also like they offer original or spicy (chicken). I must say that their Cajun rice was WEAK and left A LOT to be desired. Too wet. Popeye’s has nothing to worry about. Oh! And they had Lipton PEACH Tea. Nice! Recommend!
• Burger and fries from Tom’s Burgers & Grill. P had never been there before and I’ve been wanting to take him there for some time now. He ordered the same thing (sans mustard: his mortal{?} enemy) + a chocolate shake, which they bring to the table in one of those fluted/footed glasses, along with the stainless steel cup they mix it in (and a long spoon). I think he fell in love that night. LOL!
• Salad from Red Lobster.
• The Daily Special: chicken fried steak with double mashed potatoes (I get the gravy on the side: I like to be in control of my gravy consumption) from Dixie House Cafe.
• The Pei Wei Spicy (shrimp and noodles instead of rice).

• Monster Fries from Dixie House Cafe. N ordered these. If you’re wondering what “Monster Fries” are: ‘Homemade fries, topped with homemade chili, topped with lettuce tomato onions, cheddar cheese and served with a side of jalapeños.’ N got them sans onions and raved about how good they were. I have a feeling he’ll be back.
• The Duet Magnifique from La Madeleine: Caesar salad, turkey club & pasta salad. Fresh bread and blueberry jam for dessert.
• Chicken strips, fried okra and a baked potato courtesy of Arlington Steakhouse. Always delicious, though I must say that the last time I was there, the service was seriously lacking (and it wasn’t even that busy!). Kind of disappointing.
• Shrimp lo mein, fried rice and an eggroll from Ho Ho Kitchen. Divine.
• The best tostada you will ever eat, courtesy of Taco Casa. Cracktacular. Seriously.
