Free Food

A short time ago, I was rewarded (off the books) for a project that had incredible results.

And that reward was a “Chili’s Gift card”

So the family had a couple of dinners at Chili’s

The first time it was just a classic bacon cheese burger.  Bacon and cheese is about the limit to the amount of “stuff” that gets piled on a burger for me.  Good thick apple wood bacon.

The next dinner we had, the wife suggested we get the “2 for $20” deal.  A shared appetizer and two entrees.

We had the “Crispy Onion String & Jalapeño Stack”.

Now, there are nanny state ninnys that get enjoyment from telling others not to enjoy themselves:

Well, screw them.

We ate it and enjoyed it a lot !!!

Dang, those Jalapeño’s are hot !!

“Beer wench, fetch me a stein!!”

And I got the dry rub ribs.

I like ribs, but every time that I order ribs, I always end up thinking that I should have just got the burger !!  Food regrets !

What was really neat (and new to me) was a small electronic device at the table that you could use to pay.

Tom & Eddies

This is one of many “upscale” burger joints that have been popping up over the past several years.  We’ve driven past this location for several years and never gave it a thought.

BUT !!!

My mother went to one and now she thinks it’s the greatest burger place since she found “Culver’s”

So, she invited us out and away we went.

This is the “Love Me Dew” burger:

“Tom & Eddie’s signature spicy mayonnaise, topped with melted Wisconsin Pepper Jack & Peppadew sweet piquante peppers on a gourmet roll.”

With a drink, it’s about $12.00 a person.

The fries were very good and there was a jalapeno mustard that I put on them.
