Are you the type of person that can walk into a sit-down restaurant by yourself and have a nice, quiet meal while others chat away with their friends? I’ve done it a few times and by that I mean less than 10 times. You also won’t find me at a movie by myself, I did that once and vowed never to do it again.
I’ve teamed up with Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen for their Friends Don’t Let Friends Eat Alone campaign. This past weekend I asked my neighbor and friend, Lindsey, if she had any plans for lunch. That meant some alone time for both of us moms without any kids at our side begging for food or something to play with. A whole hour and a half to ourselves with some good girl gab time.
To be completely honest with you, it’s been about 4 years since I’ve dined at Cheddars. They revamped their menu and I was excited to try it out with my friend. There would be no dining alone today.
We started off our meal with the Santa Fe Spinach Dip appetizer that came with some salsa and chips. It’s a combination of spinach, four cheeses, sour cream, spices and then topped off with mozzarella. For my main meal, I chose the Hand-Crafted Asian Salad. It came with fresh greens, grilled chicken, vegetables, herbs, vinaigrette and then it sat on a huge wonton crisp topped with a peanut sauce and glaze. This salad didn’t disappoint and it was very filling. My friend ordered the white fish from the lighter menu choices. Everything listed in this portion is 575 calories or less and is great if you have an appetizer or dessert. Now that we are talking about desserts I couldn’t leave my friend hanging and not order a dessert to split. We went with Cheddar’s Legendary Monster Cookie. A freshly baked cookie (order ahead of time) topped with ice cream, whipped cream, fudge and a cherry.
My friend and I had a great meal at Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen and we can’t wait to return.
