A dinner with my family at...
Tonight was the night that I "paid" my dad for working on Pascual's truck. He wanted to go to Hometown Buffet. The last night I went there was when Nancy & Chuck Garcia had a "yay, we're pregnant!" dinner (Charlie's almost 2 now).
While at the salad bar, I noticed a fly landing on an array of food. Gross! Then almost everything that looked good was breaded and I didn't want to use a hundred weight watcher points eating those kinds of food. So I settled for spaghetti, fish, and a chicken leg...all of which I could make that tastes better than theirs. For dessert I had a small bowl of soft serve ice cream. That and the rib that my sister gave me were the highlights of the menu.
All of which totalled 40 points. I used all the rest of my weekly allowance points. SOOO sad!
Yep, my sister went too. My dad figured I should also pay for her since we used her garage to house the truck while it was getting worked on. Her garage that I had to clean to make space for the truck. But, no matter. It was fun having her there.
The absolute best part about taking the fam is that my dad, his girlfriend, and my sister all brought zip lock bags to use as "to go boxes". Oh yeah, it was great having to be a lookout for management as they stuffed their bags. SO OKIE! I couldn't believe it...well actually I can believe it. It sounds just like them.
So between the hungry fly, the "not much to write home about" food, and my ettiquette savy family members (yeah right) I highly doubt that I'll ever go back to Hometown Buffet.
