I’ve been trying to find the recipe online for that strawberry salad that I mentioned a few days ago that I enjoyed so much at the Longhorn Steakhouse recipe. I was hoping that maybe the Facebook page or the website for the Longhorn would have a section that would share their recipes. After all, Ruby Tuesday shares their recipes, so I figured that Longhorn would as well! Can’t find it anywhere! So I guess I’m going to have to get a copy of the menu item description and try to duplicate it myself. I can’t afford to drive into town every day just to eat that delicious salad!
Ever since the Longhorn Steakhouse restaurant opened in town I have been offering up the suggestion to eat there whenever someone says “let’s go out tonight, I feel like having a good steak!” We have several restaurants in town that serve a good steak, but the Longhorn is my favorite restaurant for steak. I would go there and order a Flo’s filet, baked potato, and a side salad. Usually would not order any dessert because I would be waaaaay too full to even think about eating any more food! The hot bread that the wait staff brings to the table is delicious, and I could eat that bread for hours on end and be perfectly happy!
A few months ago I went to the Longhorn in a group, celebrating a good friend’s birthday. For some crazy reason I looked more closely at the menu than I had in the past and saw a great looking strawberry salad offered as a side dish. So I went ahead and ordered the strawberry salad along with my steak, and I could not believe how gigantic that salad was! I thought is was a side dish, but it sure seemed to me like it was a meal in itself!
Last night I had the opportunity to go to the Longhorn for supper again, and this time I was sure to tell the waiter that I wanted the SIDE strawberry salad, not the main course salad. I had looked at the menu again and saw that there were two different options. Well, again when the salad came out from the kitchen, it was HUGE! All I can say is that it was delicious, and I don’t have any idea how I managed to eat all of my dinner, but somehow I did.
Tonight we are going to eat out at the Golden Corral. We are celebrating my sister’s wedding anniversary, so we are joining several other family members there. I like the Golden Corral; it is an all you can eat buffet with the best tasting yeast rolls I’ve ever tasted in my life! I sneak a zipper storage bag into my oversized purse that I bring just so I can bring the leftover yeast rolls home to eat later! They are the best! And I really like their mashed potatoes and their macaroni and cheese, too. Oh, and I love hush puppies! I’d really like to eat there EVERY DAY! Their salad bar and dessert bar is terrific, I like to eat a little taste of everything!
