Okay, you kinda have to be old enough to get that title and even then, it’s still lame. As lame as I feel after eating at chains all weekend and blogging about it. I promise to try harder local foodies.
First on the tour of chain shame is Outback. I like Outback and have always enjoyed their food. I was fortunate to win a gift certificate from Outback on Twitter, so this meal was especially enjoyable. We had a bloomin’ onion, of course…
Next up, California Pizza Kitchen. I had seen pics on Twitter of a dessert pizza, but the Waterford location knew nothing of this. Nevertheless, we stayed. Haha. I chose, for dinner, their chicken lettuce wraps.
The hubs tried a pasta bowl with meatballs in a spicy pomodoro sauce.
Last but not least, one of my all time favorite chains that I have no guilt for visiting often. The awesome 4Rivers. Great owners, great BBQ and a super sweet dessert selection. Get ready to NEED these desserts.
My daughter loves the vanilla birthday cake cupcake.
I got a zebra ding dong. (Insert inappropriate giggle here.)
The hubs got an Oreo bomb. And let me tell you…it weighed half a pound easy.
I hope this weekend will bring opportunities to try new and local spots, so hopefully my street cred (lol) isn’t ruined as a budding food blogger. Thanks to my Twitter followers who must clearly love the info I RT about local food, food trucks and events, since they are hanging around. (I appreciate you all and your feedback, as well as suggestions.)
No matter where you choose to eat, my friends, enjoy! Without shame!
