This house is clean!
I vacuumed, mopped, and cleaned 2.5 bathrooms. That sounds like I didn’t clean the 3rd bathroom all the way, doesn’t it?
I’m not sure if you realized this or not but yesterday’s blog entry was all about ONE topic. Yes, ONE topic! That could possibly be a first for me. Oh, and probably a last.
Tonight was our 3rd dinner out for Charlotte Restaurant Week. The good news is that we’ve booked a 4th for Sunday with The Melting Pot. Mmmmm chocolate fondue. Well, back to tonight’s restaurant, Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House. What a strange name. Here’s my breakdown:
Deanna and I had the dinner salad with avocado goddess dressing. It was very good. 2 strips of lean bacon criss-crossed the top. The bacon itself was amazingly yummy. The salad was accompanied by 2 HUGE croutons. I forgot my camera at home. They looked unnaturally huge and amused me (as you can tell). Jim and Beth ate the soup and said it was good.
All 4 of us had the filet. It was tender, melt in your mouth and had the perfect flavor. We all enjoyed it. It was about the same as the filet at Ruth’s Chris except for bigger. We liked bigger. The mashed potatoes were overly peppered (a hint of cayenne, my ass). If I remember, we all thought so. It’s a shame really, they had such good potential.
Beth and I ate half our chocolate mousse. It was a large portion and while it was good, I didn’t think it was rich enough. Jim and Deanna enjoyed their cheesecake. I didn’t taste it buy I think it was non-New York style. Here’s the menu:
Remember, we spent $30 for the 3 course meal. I priced it out against their online menu:
- $ 9.00 Dinner salad
- $34.00 8 oz filet
- $ 9.00 Chateau potatoes
- $ 9.00 Mousse (not on the online menu so I’m guessing)
- $61.00 total!
$61.00 for $30.00. Not bad, not bad.
Another successful score tonight!
