I know, but I would enjoy adding one to my "plan" if one can work for me. Besides, I always like to work for a "goodie"! Hahaha!

Oh, dear, can't do this one either. We rarely, rarely eat out. :(

I order 2 veggies and the salad, eat what I can of the main course and take the rest home for my lunch the next day. Sometimes it doesn't make it for lunch, it becomes supper.

Sound like a delightful dinner! Love shrimp scampi. And you found quality AA foods.

Congratulations on completing the holiday challenge!

I looked at Doyle's and it did look tasty, also pricey as you said. But I will take door #2.
My dh and I go to Rapid City, South Dakota about once a month for doctor visits or shopping ventures, sometimes just for fun. While there we frequently go to lunch. Red Lobster is one of my favorites. I see they have new lunch specials, better for us than the offerings at Olive Garden or Chilis, or others we frequent. I would choose the Sailor's platter, with Hand-breaded fried shrimp, garlic shrimp scampi and a broiled fish fillet served with choice of accompaniment. $9.99. I'd choose a vegetable in season as the accompaniment. They usually have broccoli or haricot verts, both AA. That is a lot for lunch, but it is good protein and should satisfy the longing for seafood that this child of the ocean shore gets in our midcontinent home. It can stand for most of the protein for that day, leaving supper to be a simple salad and soup or sandwich affair. No dessert. I'll save the calories for fruit later on.
see their lunch menu at:

Took me a while to realize you said to pick a lunch for YOU?
Not sure I understand it but I studied the menu. If I were there I'd choose the Fried Button Mushrooms with blue cheese. I'm a vegetarian so I will pass up on the dishes with meat, and I won't pick a salad because I have those every day for lunch! The Deluxe salad looks good though.
I am getting hungry! lol

I can't share what they provide at the restaurant I'm going to because they don't have a menu. You eat what they serve! That's how they keep the prices down, the cook buys the produce in bulk and serves just that one dish. On monday it's this, on tuesday it's that, one can look on internet what's 'for dinner' tonight at her place.

I think the tradition here would be to have a get together, with family and friends. Sometimes with one person cooking everything. Sometimes with the "goto" home providing the main meal focus (like turkey, ham, roast beef) and others bringing side dishes and desserts. But we do have a few restaurants open on Christmas and many do go out to eat.

2 years ago we were at my house in NC and I made reservations at Doyles for Christmas Dinner. The menu seemed to be as if you would be having a 5 course meal fit for a queen. We were snowed in. 12 inches in drifts on our mountain road which you couldn't see and no snow plow running.

And I'll be fixing our Christmas holiday meal. However they are very happy going to a restaurant at least once a day and not having to cook, and I'd be very happy cooking for the neighborhood if I didn't have to eat at a restaurant.So this year, we will go to Doyles for lunch when we are driving around the area. Don't know which day yet. But it doesn't look like we'll have snow.

So for the challenge, you just pick the time, the day during the season from December 17 - Dec. 31.

Maybe you could share what they provide for you when you go to your restaurant. I am jealous. I don't think I've ever eaten in a place like that. Ever. (except my own home)

I gather from this that it's a tradition in the US to go out to eat during the holidays (you mean Christmas and New Year's Eve?)?

My husand and I usually don't go out to eat in a restaurant or lunch cafe during those days. We prepare our own meals. However this year is the first time we ARE dining out with Christmas. We will visit a vegetarian / vegan restaurant in our neighbourhood and there is NO real menu; you eat what they prepare from fresh organic produce that's in season. The cook works magic. So I will not be able to choose but I expect it will be a very healthy meal.

Thinking about it, there may be some sugar in the dessert perhaps. My plan for these three days of celebration is to have some sugar, which I don't on 'normal' days, but taste and enjoy it consciously. And to go back on track right after the days of celebration are over.

Choose an Anti-Angiogenic Holiday meal for me or you.

1. Choose FOR ME: I'll be going out to Doyle's Restaurant for lunch once while I'm in Murphy, N.C. Your challenge is to choose your favorite lunch and base your decision on anti-angiogenic choices. In your post, let us know what you choose, and why. I guess you could use the dinner menu, but I always think I can't afford their dinner. You can access either menu at:


www.doylescedarhill.com/

OR

2. Choose for YOU: Pick a restaurant in your area where you will probably go to eat sometime during the holidays. Let us know where you are going and what angiogenic choices you'd make and why. If they have an online menu, share the link. OKAY?

Happy Holidays!!
