favorite restaurant dishes.

Top Ten {Tuesday}


I haven't linked up with Oh Amanda for Top Ten Tuesday in awhile, so I put together this list of my
Top Ten Favorite Restaurant Dishes*
*well, the ones I can think of right this moment. I'm sure there are other contenders out there. And these are in no particular order.

[1] Overloaded Potato Soup from O'Charley's
"...made with an abundance of cheese and potatoes, then topped with hickory smoked bacon and shredded cheese."

[2] Appetizer Sampler from Perkins
"A sample of Dixie Dippers, MozzaSticks, Fried Green Beans and Santa Fe Mini Chimi’s. Served with Honey Mustard, Chipotle Ranch and Marinara dipping sauces."

[3] Parmesan Crusted Tilapia from Olive Garden
"Oven-baked delicate white fish crusted with parmesan cheese. Served with Italian vegetables over angel hair tossed in a light garlic-butter sauce."
[4]  Burrito Bowl (with rice, chicken, mild salsa, cheese and sour cream) from Chipotle
"Served in a bowl, choice of cilantro-lime rice, pinto or vegetarian black beans, meat (braised carnitas or barbacoa, adobo-marinated and grilled chicken or steak) or guacamole, salsa and cheese or sour cream."
[5] Broccoli Cheddar Soup from Panera

"Chopped broccoli, shredded carrot and select seasonings simmered in a velvety smooth cheese sauce."
[6] Panda Bowl (with orange chicken and fried rice) from Panda Express

"Choose any one entree and a side of steamed rice, fried rice, chow mein, or mixed vegetables"

[7] Veggie Patch Pizza from Applebee's
 picture via
"An ultra-thin pizza topped with mushrooms, creamy spinach with Asiago cheese, artichoke hearts, bruschetta, and a rich blend of Italian cheeses."
[8] Chocolate Chip Waffles from Waffle House

I don't think this needs any explanation except for 'YUM'.

[9] Wisconsin Mac and Cheese from Noodles & Company
"A blend of cheddar and jack cheeses, cream, elbow macaroni."
 
[10] Captain Kid from Planet Smoothie
picture via
"strawberries, orange sherbert"

Ok, so the last one is a drink, but it could substitute for an entire meal. And at 180 cal, Captain Kid is one of the healthiest on the menu. Just ignore the fact that it's listed under "Kids" when you order ;-)


There you go. 10 of my favorite things to order when I go out to eat :) Obviously I love cheese, chicken, and anything breaded/fried. Oh well....

I always see great good posts while I'm eating bland garbage (ie: popcorn, rice cakes or cereal). Today it's cereal, ugh. Now I'm starving for Chipotle!

How is Bert kitty? I would love to see more pics.

Happy Wednesday :)
