Had a cheeky win eating out that I wanted to share. Went to Frankie and Benny's with my fella. Plan of attack when eating out so far has been getting as clean a high Protein starter/salad as I can find and he gets a main we both like the look of. Then get it all to come at once with a spare plate and I get bits and bobs from his plate and vice versa. Works out really well 🙂.

This time it was their avocado, chicken and bacon salad with dressing on the side. The chicken was kind of beyond chargrilled to dry, but I was starving and knew I didn't need many edible bits to make me full. So with lean bacon, chicken, avocado to lubricate, bits of salad, and one cheeky sweet potato fry, and taste of burger off his plate, I filled myself up nicely.

Waitress came and cleared and didn't, thankfully, comment on the untouched look of my salad bowl.

Next thing we know she comes back and says "I took that salad off your bill. That chicken was overdone. You should have told me!". Funny thing is I'm really good at calling out mistakes compared to the average Brit, but if I had asked her to replace earlier a) I would have got horrifically hangry and b) Would have still looked like I hated it when I was done.

I hadn't got the heart to tell her the truth so I just thanked her hugely and left a really big tip!

TIP for folk just starting going out: Don't refuse a drink, just accept a glass of Water or get a bottle for the table. My poor waitress was so worried about me not having a drink she didn't leave us in peace for more than 2 minutes!

💜 $cor€ 💜 and I agree! I always take the Water and no one worries about me not drinking while eating / no need for it to be replaced.

Congratulations on a salad well done 😂

That's a good story. Hubby and I are doing that too, ordering one entree and getting an extra plate and I'll eat a piece or two of whatever he's having and ordering a glass of Water, which I really don't end up drinking.
