It was my son's Birthday party today.
Hubby's sick with a cold, and my back is out. I chased us both out of bed, we got the kids dressed, and he said, "Would it be OK if we went to Waffle House for breakfast?"
And so we did.
They had their waffles. I'm sure it was nice. (I've never tasted Waffle House waffles, so I can't miss them.)
I had steak and eggs. Except instead of trying to be conservative and ordering the cheapest option (sirloin), I got the T-bone steak and eggs.
Oh, MAN! It's been years since I had a T-bone steak! Forgot how much I love bone-in steaks!
When I was finished, and there was nothing edible left on my plate, I set down my fork, looked at my husband, and said, "I just ate a T-bone steak for $11." Looked at in that light, it suddenly wasn't such an outrageous indulgence! (That attitude is coming straight from me, btw, not from him. He never makes me feel guilty over ordering what I want. Instead, it's voices from a childhood of poverty that does it.) (And yes, a T-bone at, say, Outback would have been thicker, and prepared with more pizzazz, and had more sides. And cost twice as much.)
The great part? We had vouchers from the owner for 4 free waffles. SO, 4 of us ate, I had T-bone steak, and we got out for around $22. ~chuckles~
After that we ran to the store for bottles of water, and went to the party. (Where we served my LC cupcakes.)
After the party, hubby and kids were starving, so we walked over to the food-court, and hubby set my aching self down in a seat while he ordered. "What do you want?"
"I guess I could go for something to drink..."
It's now bedtime. I've had some almonds, a little cheese, and may go back for a few more bites of something... but not a full meal's worth.

What a lovely day! Happy Birthday to the birthday kid!!
I am a lot like you...............something about eating a steak...............Growing up there were many nights we had pancakes or "Hot Bean Sandwiches". Some nights dad said he wasn't too hungry.
I feel ya.
I am so glad you enjoyed your meal and that the satisfaction is lasting!
