What I Ate: September 2, 2009 (Steak 'n Shake, Taco Cabana)

Lunch: After a busy morning installing fiberglass insulation into my new garage, we stopped in at a Steak 'n Shake for lunch on the way home. I decided to treat myself to a root beer float.

I also ordered a Double Cheeseburger with Bacon. I think they call it something else - like a Bacon 'n Cheese Double Steakburger or something like that. Ate it all.

Dinner: We went back to our home site to commence Operation Save The Trees and watered the oak trees on and around our property in an attempt to keep more of them from dying. By the time we got done it was pretty late, nearly 10pm. We drove over to Olive Garden (had a craving) and got there 15 minutes too late - they closed at 10pm. After driving around a bit, we ended up at a 24-hour Taco Cabana and I had a mixed (steak and chicken) fajita skillet for dinner. Not bad for fast food. I especially like the thick fluffy flour tortillas.

  • Man I love steak and shake. Taco Cabana is really hit and miss but the fajitas are the best thing there.

  • How is there Chicken (at Taco Cabana)? We really like El Pollo Loco's chicken (when they do it right), and when we saw Taco Cabana's lime marinated chicken on the menu we wondered how it would taste.
