Well yesterday was Valentine's Day so I was off duty for dinner. Brett and I have been going to the Cheesecake Factory every Valentine's Day since 2001 (which technically was our first date.) Every year we wait 2+ hours to sit in a noisy dining room 5 inches away from the next table. We always order the same thing: Crusted Chicken Romano. It is delicious and quite possibly one of my all time favorite foods. We also always get a frozen iced raspberry to drink, which they took off the menu a long time ago but can sometimes still make.
So last night we were planning on going there when Brett hit major traffic on the way home from work and it took him 1 hour and 15 minutes to get home (it usually takes 20 min.) When he got home we both knew it was pointless to even try going to the Cheesecake Factory so we went to Islands instead. Hey, it's close, cheap, and tasty (free actually- thanks Mom and Dad for the gift card.) When we go there we always get the Cheddar Fries with ranch on the side...soooo bad yet soooo good:) I get the Yaki tacos every time. Once I deviated and was sadly disappointed:( So even though we broke with tradition, we still had a good night. As long as we're together right?!
