Birthday present for myself...

Saturday, September 06, 2014      4 comments

What do restaurants have to fear?

Wednesday, September 26, 2012      2 comments

I knew I was going to Texas Roadhouse last night for dinner to support a local fundraiser. I figured I would go to their website and check the nutrition info so I could map out what I would have to eat. Why don't all restaurants have nutrition i... Read more
