Jerk Chicken

I’m happiest when I’m dining at sketchy restaurants.

I’ve explained my love & devotion to mediocre chain restaurants before. It’s just in my DNA.

Garr & I tried a new church yesterday & the first thing that has to happen after spending time with Jesus is FOOOOOOOD. I typically cry so much I’m just exhausted & need fuel.

What is right down the street from this church? YOU GUESSED IT – a Red Robin. Imagine like screeching tires & curb jumping as I force him to turn into the parking lot. No, I don’t eat burgers. Not the point. The POINT is a little something I like to call bottomless french fries. Did we partake? Absolutely. Did I look pregnant the rest of the day? Definitely. WORTH IT.

So I couldn’t prepare the potatoes I had planned to make with dinner because I literally would have exploded into 1,000 Rachel pieces.

    This looks AMAZING. Side note, my church often does the same thing to me. But it’s a good cry. And, it’s in the middle of downtown, so Chicken & Waffles are approximately 10 feet away, making it all much more bearable.
