I feel human again

This past week I've been a victim of severe intestinal distress. Suffice it to say that I'm sick of being stuck in the bathroom. I've gradually been able to eat more than crackers and sprite, and yesterday I actually went out to eat. Granted, I had something light, but it was real food. :o)

Yesterday we celebrated my mother's birthday. She turned 82 last week and is still doing pretty well. We went to Romano's Macaroni Grill, and I was NOT favorably impressed. The food was pretty good, WHEN it finally came, but the service was soooooooo slow. It's hard to understand because the restaurant was virtually empty and we didn't order anything fancy. My brother caught the waitress' eye to ask for some more water and had to wait at least 10 minutes before she bothered to come over.

Who came up with the fad of dipping bread in olive oil? I tried a couple bites, but all I could taste was the oil. And I don't like the taste of olive oil, no matter how good it's supposed to be for you or how it's flavored. To me, oil tastes like oil. And between the giant pepper mill and the economy size bottle of olive oil, there was hardly any room on the table for our food.

All in all, I think I'd rather go to Olive Garden any day.

Glad you are feeling better Ladybugs! And I totally agree with you - Olive Garden is so much better!

Ladybugs hurrah for health! We tried a new restaurant a couple of weeks ago that your post made me think of. The waitress dumped a glass of ice water on my son's lap. The food was terrible and the waiting to get the table in the first place took forever. Not going back!

I miss Dallas! Wish we could move back. A lot of my family lives there! I haven't been to the Grill... but I love Olive Garden and for Mexican food, I love Pasados.d
