I ate the tomato slice. A little while later, our entrees were brought out on small white plastic oval dishes. How sad. Grouper cheeks turned out to be fried fish nuggets, bland and tasting only of cheap shortening. There were quite a few of them, too bad they weren't good. The one I tried didn't have the same texture of any other grouper I had had before. I'm pretty sure these used to be served in middle school lunchrooms. Surf and turf was one section of snow crab and a skinny steak underneath, my baked potato still completely wrapped up in aluminum foil, with packets of 'spread' (I guess that is supposed to be butter, excuse me, margarine) and sour cream. Again, fast food baked potatoes surpass this.
By now I was not believing this was a real place! One segment of snow crab is a half-pound? I must have 2 or 3 pounds when we have them at home then. I cracked into a crab leg and it broke in half, crabmeat still inside each half of the shell which is the classic sign of frozen crabs. Not having been supplied with the steel picker thing that usually helps, I gave up on that piece. Charles helped me attempt to get some crab and finally said, "Well now we know what not to order." Thank God for his sense of humor.
The steak was okay. If it was served to me next to an order of eggs at 3 in the morning I would be pleased. In this context, I was just glad to have something edible. After unwrapping the baked potato; (the foil wasn't even cut) I used the melted butter (hopefully it was butter but I must be dreaming. This place cheaped out on every possible thing) that came with the crab on the baked potato instead of the 'spread'.
Stepping outside was a relief and I apologized to Charles for the bad choice. Do yourself a favor and don't bother with the Crab Shack.

Saturday's workout is already documented, Sunday I went for a three-mile walk, so steady state cardio, Monday took Advanced Spin class. Tonight is squat/ press/ clean night. Weds I'll take the Ultimate Challenge class which is a cross between boot-camp and treadmill interval training, Thurs off. Friday will be squat, bench deadlift day and if I'm still struggling w 140 on deads I will use an alternate grip to see if that helps. Not sure about Saturday yet, maybe another spin class. If the schedule works it would be nice to take yoga and spin, although the man hates it when I spend a lot of time in the gym on weekends. We'll see!

Off topic, my hair and nails are growing like crazy, may have something to do with all the protein I consume. I eat straight up tuna, chicken, eggs, no 'whey protien drinks' or anything like that.

Doesn't she have any friends to warn her away from foolishness such as this? Oh my. She is amazingly rich and funny so more power to her.In other news, I have the usual Friday dilemma of a friend coming over versus working out tonight.
