Just Like Grandpa!

On Saturday night Scott, the kids and I went to dinner at Red Robin - Yum! This is one of our favorite places to eat. As Lindsay & Caleb were looking at the kids menu, Caleb said he wanted to try something different. He wanted Macho Nachos, "just like Grandpa Ken gets". It's an appetizer that Grandpa Ken usually gets for his dinner.
"A giant platter of crisp tortilla chips, seasoned taco meat, melted Pepper-Jack and Cheddar cheeses, shredded lettuce, tomatoes, black olives, (jalapeno peppers, guacamole - Caleb said no thanks to) and sour cream....whew!"
This is a BIG dinner for a 9 year old so I decided to ask if we could have a smaller kids size version of the Macho Nachos. Caleb was excited - he enjoyed every bite. As we were sitting there, waiting a long time for Caleb to finish, we were talking about how he is just like his Grandpa. A SLOW EATER! No, this is not a bad thing but we are always waiting for Grandpa to finish his meal - he likes to enjoy every single bite.
I was mad that I did not have my camera until Scott reminded me that I can use my cell phone camera so I was able to take a couple of blurry pictures:

Next time, I think we will order the regular size instead of a smaller size. Caleb probably received 1/4 of a regular portion which is around $10 and they charged us $8. For $2 more, Caleb can take the rest home for lunch the next day or he can share some with us!!
