Texas Roadhouse is bad for my waistline.



So the hubs recently got a job cheffing at Texas Roadhouse.  I'm not sure how many of you have ever been there, but they've got your typical steakhouse foods (fried appetizers, steaks, burgers, etc.).  They also have these killer rolls that they bring to your table and serve with cinnamon butter.  (YUM!) The hubs is allowed to eat as many rolls and as peanuts as he wants.  Good for him (the skinny little turd).

I really have to say that I think the rolls are were probably my favorite part.  However, I've recently been informed by the hubs and by some fellow TR employees that eating two rolls is equivalent to eating a Big Mac or a Whopper.  Yep, awesome for my waistline.  A Big Mac has 580 calories, while a Whopper has 670 calories.  So I can assume that eating two rolls would be equivalent to eating about 625 calories (the average of the two burgers).  That's ridiculous!  I don't eat 625 calories for lunch, how on earth is it fair to eat 625 calories before your meal is even served (and that's if you can stop yourself from eating more of them)?  Not.cool.

Needless to say, my TR roll days are over (or should be over.)  I am not happy about this.

    This is nuts- but the other day I was wracking my brain, trying to think of the place with "the really good rolls." We're up in Michigan, and I could not for the life of me think of it- then I stumbled on your blog- DING DING DING- "Texas Roadhouse" it is!

    Thanks for jogging my memory! :)
