I have a problem. I’ve been better about budgeting, saving money and just becoming a little more fiscally responsible lately. But I just can’t quit restaurants. I can’t even tell you how many times I ate out last week – my parents read the blog and I have a feeling I’d be getting a call from my Father. Seriously. :(

I could blame it on a number of things – Restaurant Week, the Lakers vs. Timberwolves game, two-for-one Chipotle and a love for date nights and dinner with friends.  But there really isn’t a good excuse.

Speaking of restaurant week, look what we saw in the March issue of Mpls St. Paul Magazine! Recognize anyone?

On the upside, we met an Iron Chef, visited a restaurant that is slated to close, had some great dinners with friends and tried __ new restaurants. I suppose I can look at those as positives but I’ve got to answer to my expanded belly and shrunken pocketbook now… let’s just hope that my Dad doesn’t call to lecture. ;)

 Please tell me I’m not the only one!!
