    As much as I would like to see kangaroos in person, I would rather spend that money on more fabric.

    :D

    Everything is good on the menu there, but the pork chops are cooked with a little pink in the middle. And I can't eat pork chops like that. ( germs and whatever else is in undercooked pork)
    I love my steak just this side of "moo". Oh, if you order a mixed drink keep an eye on the bartender cause they fill the glass with ice and then add the drink and leave the rest in the container to sell to another customer or to you if you order another. At least that is what they did here at our local one.
    A drink there is like 6 bucks and its only got 2 sips...heck might as well order a couple of shots of tequila for that price. lol

    Oh, I am all set as far as drinks. I am a teetotaler. :-)

    I am thinking seriously of steak. I always tell them "well done", even if you have to butterfly it. I can hardly wait. Feb 8 is Monday and I am already salivating. :XD:

    Feb 8th is my birthday too, but our closest Outback is too far. About 50 miles and a $25.00 ferry ride. It would be a great treat! No matter what, don't look at the nutrition facts.

    Happy Birthday. My favorite is the pork loin with the apricot glaze and garlic mashed potatoes. My girlfriend is dating the manager of one of the Outbacks here. I know I can totally trust their kitchen.

    My favorite is definitely the Chocolate Thunder from Down Under. Gotta save room for some of it! I get their petite sirloin and it's always wonderful.

    Just a heads up - their food is all spicy, seasoned. I didn't know that the first time I went. The food is good, but I can't handle the spices.

    Thanks to you all. I never look at the nutrition facts (well, not anymore). I intend to just enjoy the wonderful evening. The dessert sounds wonderful. I hope I can fit it in.........

    I love Outback. I especially go for their coconut shrimp!!! I love their coconut shrimp. Did I tell you I love their coconut shrimp?
    Don't care for the onion. Love that pork loin w/apricot glaze. The ribeye is delicous. They have alway's prepared it right on.
    Want to try their lamb next time. Their sweet potatoes are the best. Large, moist, and tatsty. Of course because it is a treat to go there in the first place, I add the butter and brown suger to it.
    Only have had their cheese cake. Was really good.

    Have a beautiful B-day. Enjoy your dinner and savor every moment. You deserve it.
