Strictly speaking, I should have posted this by 8pm to comply with my own rules. But this is my blog, so I can do what I want. Hah! (Also, I was distracted by mathematics for most of the evening, so I lost track of time)
I went to see RED 2 with Ken. Originally Abbey was going to come for the regular Wednesday as well, but she fell asleep before I even left the door. (This may be an exaggeration).
The movie was just as hilariously over-the-top as the original RED proved to be. Where in the original Bruce Willis steps out of a car in the most spectacular fashion, in this movie he gets back into a car in a similar way. It’s action for its own sake, but with a big wink and the most improbable scenes you will ever see in an action movie.
Before all that though, dinner.
Abbey had recommended “Griddle” in Rouse Hill. She had warned me about the portion sizes and asked me to convey this message to Ken.
We were stubborn. Twice.
Ken had a long hard look at the ribs on the menu, and never having had lamb ribs before, he decided to try those. He toyed with the idea of getting the double ribs (probably not the triple). What arrived for the single though was two half racks of ribs, and had he picked anything else he’d have needed more than one plate.
My main was a little more modest than his, but very tasty and filling. I understand why Abbey keeps going there.
We were a little concerned at 15 minutes before our movie time (we assumed we’d have 30 minutes) that we wouldn’t be able to try dessert. The girl that was serving us suggested that with 30 minutes to spare we could easily fit any dessert and we wouldn’t need to pick for speed.
I decided that “Chocolate Fondue Waffles” sounded innocuous enough.
What I received is the monstrosity you see above. I finished just over half the contents of the platter, and I have no idea how anyone can eat a meal *and* a dessert at this place.
Next time I think I need to bring more hunger along. That is how you solve that particular problem, right?
