Another long day, another meal out.

A couple of weeks ago I mentioned our usual dining spot for nights that The Boss Lady has to work late. The staff are always great, the food is so so and the place is already casual and a little bit loud, so a couple of kids don't add that much noise to the chaos.

Tonight though, The Talker wanted to pick somewhere different. So the three of us headed over to Cheddar's. Even though it is pretty casual there, too, it is a lot quieter than the catfish place. So I was a little worried that keeping the kids calm enough not to annoy other diners might be tough. I was hoping that we would beat most of the crowd, by eating at 5:15.

The kids promised that they could stay quiet and that we would have a nice meal. And danged if they didn't deliver. I am not sure what happened but the twosome was awesome all through dinner. They even got a compliment from an older couple who were sitting next to us. Very cool!

Looks like we have a new favorite spot for dinners out. And it is a huge bonus that everyone actually eats when we go there. Yeah again!

And the kids? They are getting to watch Monster's Inc. since they did such a nice job at diner.

Now, whoever owns these kids, please bring mine back. Your kids are fed and happy but it is almost bedtime. I don't think I want strange kids sleeping in our house. Besides, they were so nice at dinner, it is kind of freaking me out.

Whoo-hoo to the AtHomeDaddy family!! What did they have for dinner that they actually ate? Chicken fingers?

One chix tenders with fries, no honey mustard. The other, pasta with marinara sauce and toast. Then the obligatory swapping of foods.

Me? Chix fries steak, mashed 'taters and green beans.

He who thanks but with the lips
Thanks but in part;
The full, the true Thanksgiving
Comes from the heart.
