    Same goes for thin single-ply napkins and TP ~ if we need to use twice as much, are we saving trees? (Even more important ~ is the proprietor (restaurant or hotel) really saving money by providing the "cheap stuff" if customers are consuming 2-3 times as much?)

    Final score - 8-2, for the Twinkies. And we had a man go down hard! :(

    If we ever get back to the hotel room (ugh, the traffic!), we are having a nap.

    After that, we will finalize dinner plans, but it's looking like Longhorn's Steakhouse or Culver's, each of which is near to the hotel.

    There's something to be said about planning your Disney ADR's 180 days out. There's none of the last minute scrambling. "Where do you want to eat?" "I dunno, where do you want to eat!" "I don't care, it's all good, just pick somewhere." "Doesn't matter to me, you pick." "No, you pick." :facepalm:

    My family always struggles to figure out where to eat... except at Disney. We don't book our entire vacation full of ADRs, most is QS, but we all have our favorite restaurants down there.

    The tortillas? They were really dough-y and lacking flavour.

    Aaah, I see - a typo. :p

    HELLO!! That's one of my pet peeves, too! No exaggeration--you do end up using twice as much of the product; hence no $ savings, but a ton of aggravation! :banghead:

    The cheapo toilet paper in the bathrooms at work ticked off one of my bosses so much, that the maintenance dept. was told to purchase "regular" toilet paper, to replace the useless kind--just for us. :p So, everyone on our floor (all business offices--card-swiped locked, no public entry), are keeping this a secret--that we have the only bathrooms in the entire hospital complex, that have 2-ply toilet paper! :D :hilarious:

    My building was just sold and I think the new owners are using thinly shaved pieces of concrete in lieu of toilet paper.

    My in-laws were famous for buying the cheapest paper products possible. If you tried to dry your hands on a paper towel (heaven forbid), it would just fall apart in your hands.

    I'm probably too late to chime in (but I will do it anyway), if you don't get steak at Outback I enjoy the Alice Springs Chicken. I get mine without fungus (mushrooms). I see @Eric1955 recommended it too.

    I'm sorry my team beat yours. :cool:

    GO TWINS!
    Don't worry I'm sure your team will beat mine in the regular season.

    Spring Training wins/losses mean nothing. That being said, I would like to see at least one win. :)

    We are here. IMG_2416.JPG
    1.8 miles from the hotel ... vs 19 miles for the Outback.

    I'm getting the T-Bone. Hubby hasn't decided.
    IMG_2413.JPG

    I'm going to have to upgrade to asparagus, 'cause I could take or leave broccoli. Or, maybe a second side for Hubby, and I'll just have the salad that's included.

    Decisions, decision.

    Unsweetened iced tea for me. Hubby's looks the same, but it's white peach.
    IMG_2418.JPG

    I DO like fungus! A lot. With cheese, without cheese ... fungus makes me happy.

    (Two for me, four for Hubby.)

    No bread for me, but yikes it looks good.

    Calling it now - if Hubby gets dessert, he's getting the Apple Goldrush.

    It would be nice for you to see a win. How many more games are you two going to?

    I've never eaten at a Longhorn Steakhouse but the menu looks good. I'd probably go for the rib-eye, that is my favorite cut.
