Very often in our house the conversation around dinner time goes something like this… “What do you feel like for dinner?” “I don’t know - nothing really sounds good to me, do you have any ideas?” “Not really, I’m not really craving anything either.” The roles here are interchangeable as neither one of us gets cravings the other one would be happy with when it comes to food. Now when it comes to restaurants it’s a completely different story...
Craig & Angela Bickford share their thoughts in this week's He Said/She Said.
For me, my favorite type of restaurant is any number of Tex-Mex places that Cypress has. I LOVE the Tex-Mex in our area. It does not get much better than one of the assortment dinner plates that they all have their own version of. An enchilada, a taco, a cheese puff, a chalupa, and some rice and beans, and I can hardly ask for more. But if they are willing to throw something else in, then by all means bring it on. I also enjoy a good steak from a true steak house every now and again. The basics: bread, salad, New York Strip, baked potato - and I am done for. The last type of restaurant that I have really started enjoying over the last couple of years is Asian-influenced ones. Not the run of the mill buffets that are everywhere, but rather the sit down, order from a menu type. Many of them have dishes that you would never see anywhere else and they are outstanding. Problem is... my wife...
Part of the reason I can never make a decision when it comes to what to eat for dinner is that I don't really care that much about food. I eat to live not live to eat. I could eat cereal for dinner and be perfectly satisfied. Yep. That's me. Whenever the hubby asks about dinner, I often don't have a craving - unless it involves chocolate - and I've been told you can't live on that... For restaurants, I base where I eat on the salad and the dessert. Is the salad green enough, is the dressing good? If I love their salad, I'll more than likely go to the restaurant. Next, I choose a restaurant for the dessert menu. They have to offer killer desserts. Maybe that's why I don't care for Mexican or Chinese food - they don't really put the focus on desserts. Honestly, I pretty much eat the same thing every time I go to a restaurant and I hate trying new thing because I fear I won't be able to find something plain enough for me to eat. So, if I had to choose a restaurant type, it'd most likely be Italian or good old American - I can always find a hamburger (mustard, ketchup, and pickles only please) to eat, right? As you can see, my husband must really love me to put up with my lack of interest in food and my down-right boring eating habits.
