Saltgrass Steakhouse

Tonight my brother and sissy took my cousin, Timothy, out for his belated graduation dinner. I tagged along. 😉

We went to:

Saltgrass Steakhouse
8943 Katy Freeway
Houston TX
(713) 461-6111

My sissy was already waiting at the restaurant when my brother and Timothy got there. This was sitting on the table and our first question was, “Is this real?!”

And real it was. It’s their very own Shiner Bock Beer Bread [with butter] | free. Yum. It was very melt-in-your mouth kind of deal and very wheaty tasting. It was gone pretty quickly.

My sissy went on ordering the Artichoke and Spinach dip for us to share … but the manager came out and told us it was out. We cried a bit. (Just kidding!)

The manager asked if we wanted something else instead. He then gave us some options that people loved the most.

First he suggested Mushroom caps. Sadly, Timothy hates them. So we told that to him.

Then he suggested Range Rattlers which has shrimp inside stuffed in jalapenos. My sissy is a vegetarian so we couldn’t order that. (We didn’t tell him this though.)

So my sissy went on to order us French Fried Onions [thinly sliced & piled high served with our border sauce] | $6.49. It wasn’t a favorite for me. The onions were too thinly sliced (guess that’s why it’s french?) and it was too much battered than onions. We couldn’t even taste the onion flavored.

We also ordered the Chuck Wagon Cheese Fries [fried potatoes, topped with melted jack & cheddar cheese, bacon, sour cream, & chives] | $6.99.

When we ordered this, we asked for bacon on the side. But when it came to us, bacon was everywhere! So we told the manager and he fixed it right up for us! This was a win! We all loved this. And ate it all up!

Because of kitchen error and server error, we ended up not having to pay for our French Fried Onions or Chuck Wagon Cheese Fries. WIN WIN WIN! FREE FREE FREE!! YAY!

For my main entree I got the Chopped Sirloin Steak [Certified Angus Beef ground steak topped with: grilled onions, cheddar cheese & diced tomatoes OR grilled onions, sauteed mushrooms & cognac pepper sauce] | $14.99. Plus you get either soup or salad with your entree. I got Potato soup.

The potato soup was delicious. It was very thick but also soupy. Make sense? It was just delicious! The chopped sirloin was not up to par with others that I’ve had before. It wasn’t disgusting but it wasn’t great. I only had 1/4 and packed the rest home. With the mashed potatoes .. delicious. Loved it. It was very fluffly but I only had a few bites and packed it home as well.

Those free appetizers really filled me up. And on top of that my sissy ordered a Shiner Bock before we arrived and she needed help with it. 😉

We had the worst server in the earth of servers. He came every fifty thousand minutes (exaggeration at its best!) and when he came, he usually got things incorrectly. Though he tried to smile through you could tell he was unhappy working there. Sir, please quit your job. You would be so much happier.

But that didn’t make us angry with our meal. We had fun time together reminiscing and talking about future things. Then we went back to our house and played Partini. Never heard of it?! It’s like charades but better.

My sissy, Timothy, and I never played before. We chose teams and in the end, my brother and I won. 🙂

So far it’s been a good 4 day weekend. Not anything to really complain about except for the whole getting sick thing.

Tomorrow Brett is coming in and we’re going to bar-b-que for Fourth of July. Sahweet!!

What are your plans for Fourth of July day?!

Time to relax. Night y’all!!

Everyone’s Getting Married

I have been feeling under the weather so I have been lacking in posts.

On Friday after my run, my stomach started to hurt. Then when I woke up Saturday morning, I couldn’t get off my bed. I was sore everywhere and my stomach was in even more pain.

My sick face. I’m attractive, I know. 😉

Let’s just say the ceramic bowl was my best friend yesterday.

Today, though my stomach still hurt, it wasn’t as bad so I went out with mum, brother, and June to eat pho, Sports Authority and Khol’s.

Like my new sunglasses? I got them for free at Khol’s. With all the $10 cash back and $5 coupons, it totaled to $0. How cool, eh? It was originally $15. Score.

The real reason I’m writing this post is to remember a happy moment.

While I was eating Pho I got a text message from one of my best friends from high school, Alyssa.

I rarely get to see her, let alone talk to her. We both have busy schedules and ever since she started dating, she had even less time. But I understand.

She texted saying that before they were Facebook official, she wanted to tell me that last night Greg had proposed to her and now they are engaged!

I’m so happy for her! I remember Skyping with her in the beginning of the year and telling her that this might just be the one. Ahh … It feels like just yesterday we were in high school talking about how boys were annoying.

Congrats to the lovely couple!

Seems everyone’s getting married … and I’m getting left in the dust. 😦

I’m not sure if she wanted to let people know yet. But since no one personally knows I have this blog, I felt it was safe.

Cannot believe it’s already Sunday! Hope you’re having a good weekend!

Does spotting someone on the bench count as your own strength training? No answers? Guess it does! 😀 hehe
