Foodie Friday...or...Out to Eat with the RODEOs

Welcome to Foodie Friday with our multi-talented hostess with the mostest...Gollum at Designs by Gollum! Our theme this week is cooking disasters, but I have a problem...you have to actually cook to have disasters! lol So instead, I'm taking you out to eat!


My favorite night of the week is Wednesday night because I know I'm going out with the RODEOs!! Who are we?? We are the Rowdy Old Dames Eating Out!! It's a neighborhood group of mostly retired ladies who...well...eat out!! I was so excited when I retired and got to join the group!

Here we are ...(l to r) ...Kathy, moi, Mary Van, Joyce and Karen. We are missing Patty and Penney tonight. And tonight we are taking you to Chili's where we all love the classic nachos...can you tell?? lol Have you had them? If not....


...here's what you are missing!! YUUUUMMMM!!! I have mine with guacamole! Heavenly! I think they are the best nachos on earth! And, yes, we have been known to close down a few restaurants! However, now we have to hurry home for American Idol!! Would you like to join us? We are saving you a seat!
And by the way...we have heard tell of the ROMEOs...Really Old Men Eating Out...but have yet to meet up with them!! lol
Thanks for joining us! We hope you had fun! Please be sure to drop by Gollum's to see what she's got cooking and to continue your gastronomic tour of blogland!

  10. I loved this! There is nothing like enjoying a night out with the girls! Wait, I said the same thing as Gollum..LOL The nachos do look good. I loved their Caribean Salad with non fat ranch on the side and they QUIT making my/ our mainstay at Chilis for the last five years... We were bummed. Now I will try the nachos!
    It's so fun you do this each week!:-)

  17. How fun to finally "meet" the RODEOS! Looks like you all have a great time together. I had to record Idol this week (I need to retire so no one schedules meetings on Tues and Wed lol), but I did see the Simon comment Gloria was talking about, I laughed my fanny off. Hugs, Kat (and watch out for those ROMEOS lol)

  51. Debbie, I am super late to blogland this week...but I'm sure happy I joined you at Chili's! :-) Their nachos look heavenly! It was sooooo hard to move from Houston (land of any kind of restaurant you wanted), to a teeny town that was elated to get an Applebee's! And Chili's hasn't made it here yet..sob, sniffle, wail!!
    I am FINALLY out for spring break! I know you remember how that feels! :-) We're getting geared up to go to the lake and camp starting on Monday. It will be nice to get away and relax!
    Love your new header...the pics are just gorgeous!! Oh, and glad to know another American Idol fan!!! :-) L~
