You know that I’m not a big chain restaurant girl… I avoid them whenever possible. But sometimes, you know, you just have to go. In R’s futile attempt at finding an appropriate party outfit for our holiday party on Friday (yes, I know, it’s way past the holidays), we had to appease my growling stomach, and stopped in on ye old Cheesecake Factory. Guess what folks? If you go on a weeknight at 9:30, you don’t have to wait for a table. Voila!
Free bread. Nothing wrong with that. Also, it was really nice out (near 70 degrees), so we both got smoothies. R’s was strawberry, mine was tropical, both were ginormous. It pretty much became my meal. My belly was full by the time the entrees came out, which really didn’t take very long. How do they cook these meals so quick? Especially considering they have umpteen-thousand items on their menu.
R got shrimp with angel hair pasta. As usual with most Cheesecake Factory food, ginormous. And look at those shrimp – they’re the size of my hand.
