We finished late at the gym today and headed for Chili's for a (really) late dinner. We're really loving this whole "own-time-own-target", "free-and-easy" lifestyle. I mean, if we had kids, we would have to stick to a strict regimented timetable. Plus, it's kind of difficult to drag your kids along for a dinner at 10pm. And we wouldn't be able to enjoy our favourite activity, vegging out in front of the telly for weekend-long marathons of past seasons of 24. Ahh, the joys of non-parenthood.
The BF is a huge lover of red meat and since he needed the post-workout protein, he got the Big Mouth Bites ($17.90), four mini USDA ground beef burgers with apple-wood smoked bacon, cheddar cheese, sauteed onions and ranch dressing on toasted sesame seed buns. This was served with black pepper mashed potatoes. The mashed potatoes were chunky, with silvers of potato skins added for extra texture and vitamins. The black pepper topping was also delicious, it was creamy yet spicy.
The beef burgers were so cute and little, but very hearty. The way real burgers should be, huge, meaty and robust.
I got the Country Fried Chicken ($14.90), battered and fried chicken breast topped with black pepper gravy and served with sides of a corn on the cob and black pepper mashed potatoes. The thick slab of chicken breast was surprisingly moist and incredibly fork-tender.
We also ordered extra sides of Seasonal Veggies ($3.90) and another Corn on the Cob ($3.90). The corn was absolutely stellar, buttery, juicy and amazingly sweet.
