We belong to the local Yacht Club and on Friday evenings, we usually eat in the dining room with my sister and her husband. But I've fallen into a bad habit and I guess I need to rethink it. We usually have a drink or two and a few snacks before heading into the dining room. Thus, I am not really very hungry. So I tend to get a salad and appetizer or soup and then I just eat a bit of whatever my husband gets. Last night it became really obvious when I got soup and then some of his and I think the waitress got irritated with me. So I guess from now on, I need to order an entree and be hungry before I go to dinner.
Now, would I do that at another restaurant? Maybe. It's not unusual to share entrees, especially if you are a senior. But at the Yacht Club, you get a name for yourself so I guess I better rethink the effort! At least we stayed to eat there and did not leave to go to another restaurant! The soup was butternut squash crostini and was delicious! The special was beef stew and I had a bit of my sister's bowl and it was delicious. But I could never have eaten the whole bowl! And it came with soup or salad as well!
Oh, well. At least I will try not to be rude. The head waitress is really nice but as I said, irritated with me. So I think I will give here a special monetary tip next week to atone!
