It’s no secret I love to eat. Everyday I have to ask myself, do you really need to eat the candy bar/extra piece of fried chicken/second scoop of ice cream? Did I mention that I also have a big appetite? Well, it’s more like my eyes are bigger than my stomach. But, if challenged, I will do my darnest to eat more than you.
One of my favorite things to eat is BARBEQUE! I love all kinds of bbq, whether it’s California bbq, KC bbq, Korean bbq, etc. I love them all!
We’re in Nashville and stopped at a chain called Bar-b-Cutie. I already had Jack’s bbq and that was damn tasty! But I had heard about Bar-b-cutie and wanted to try it. The bbq chains near us are Armadillo Willy’s (meh) and Tony Roma’s (overpriced meh). Anyways, we’re in line, I’m hungry and decide that I want the full rack of baby back ribs. For me. No sharing. The hubs looked at me with a raised eyebrow but he knew better to question me. Doubt my ability to eat all my food and I will eat YOUR plate too! Besides, baby back ribs are TINY! Hello, they’re called BABY back ribs!
I go to place my order and the cashier is a friendly older woman. I tell her I would like the full rack of baby rack ribs and proceed to tell her what sides I want. She stops entering, looks at me and says, honey, are you sure you can eat ALL of that? That’s a lot of ribs! I just smile and say, yep, I’d like the FULL rack please.
After our order is placed, we go find some seating and I am happily and anxiously awaiting my ribs. The server is the same lady who took my order. And she once again, questioned my ability to eat a full rack. Oh, it’s ON! I confidently say, of course I’ll eat all these ribs! And start chowing down immediately.
The hubs attempted to steal a rib as he ordered something else but I swatted his hand away, saying that I was sooooooooooooo hungry. But you know what…. halfway on my second rack of ribs, I was starting to get full. Dang me being thirsty! Water fills you up and I had drank too much water. So at that point, I decided to graciously offer the hubs some of my ribs…. just so he could have a taste, of course. I could finish it all, naturally, but since I am a kind and considerate wife, I let him have the rest of my ribs. But I really could have eaten it ALL…. maybe.
