    Erin says:

    My perfect dinner would be where I can have two bites of lots & lots of things! Like a buffet, but better. I could have 2 bites of chicken alfredo, two bites of enchiladas, two bites of steak, two bites of… well you get the point! I'm really indecisive!

    Stephanie says:

    Well, we don’t buy a lot of meat because it’s expensive, so I sometimes end up craving it (want what I can’t have, you know!). My perfect meal is a huge medium-rare steak with lots of flavor and delicious juices, maybe some shrimp on the side, and a salad. Huh, I think I just described Sizzler…

    I work at a Fondue Restaurant. Its only 4 courses though.
