Yesterday I went out for lunch with my dad. We decided to go to Earls, and I certainly was not disappointed. The food there is sooo delicious, and the portions are really filling (I took half my sandwich home!). I think its important that when you do go out, and this is especially for dining out, make sure to have or do something you normally wouldn't. For instance, I normally wouldn't make as luxe a meal as I had today, so it really was a great treat! Here's the rundown of our lunch. We started with the Warm Three Cheese + Spinach Dip (great way to start lunch especially with the warm ciabatta toasts, ohh and it had three cheeses!). My dad followed with the Bronx Burger. This burger was amazing from the beer battered onion rings, garlic aioli, red pepper relish, white cheddar, and it was on a brioche bun! I opted for the Chicken, Brie + Fig Sandwich. This was soooo (I wish I could add a 1000 "o"s because it was that good) yummy! It had roasted apples, spinach, a wonderful fig jam, garlic aioli all on a ciabatta bun! Ohh and their fries are to die for! I'm kinda a potato connoisseur.
Going out doesn't mean you need to empty your entire bank account. Choose wisely on what you want to do or where you want to eat, and make it count!
