The Month of the Heart of Winter

the new leaf of January is my Month!

Valentine’s Dinner

I don’t exactly remember when was the last time we went out on the day itself of Valentine’s Day. The truth is I can’t remember any except last year, which of course was a remarkable one because we were out of the country.

Last night we give in and join the multitude as everyone celebrates V-Day. Because we have no plans, we decided to drive at the nearby Power Plant Mall. We consider the place as it doesn’t get overcrowded even when there’s an occasion. Husband readily suggested Chili’s and I was happy that he’s now going after the quality of food. 🙂

Though Chili’s was full when we arrived, it didn’t take too long for us to get seated. At least the staffs were very honest to say that there were already guests billing out and leaving soon contrary to reviews I read about Chili’s Greenbelt. Anyway, because Chili’s in Rockwell has a small number of items listed on their menu, ordering could be so monotonous at times.

The set we had,

Wings Over Buffalo. Chicken drumettes tossed in their spicy buffalo wing sauce. Served with cool bleu cheese dressing. This appetizer was such a revelation for us considering that husband and I are becoming fans of chicken wings, the bleu cheese dip was perfect!

Country-Fried Chicken. Served with black pepper gravy, mashed potatoes, sweet corn on the cob and garlic toast. Because husband always preferred his chicken as fried we picked this one over the Monterey Chicken. The simplicity of this Chicken platter was feast to my eyes. The chicken is tender but probably needs a little more seasoning. And the generous portion of that delicious mashed potato was creamy and savory. Like the usual I want the corn of the cob. 🙂

Grilled Shrimp Alfredo Pasta. Spicy garlic and lime shrimp over penne pasta tossed with creamy Alfredo sauce. Topped with diced tomatoes, Parmesan cheese and garlic toast. We were asked if we wanted to add bacon on it, I decline because I don’t want the bacon to overpower the shrimp that was sumptuously fused with this Alfredo pasta. For us, the preference of a pasta dish should always be with seafood. Besides, it’s healthier I guess. 😀

For the second time, we skipped getting any dessert. Though we didn’t finished everything we ordered we were both full and had almost 3/4 of the Country-Fried Chicken and half of the Wings wrapped.

Chili’s is becoming a favorite resto for us but I don’t think it’s reasonable to dine here regularly, perhaps we can consider the place every time the occasion calls for it. ♥
