A Little Frustration

For whatever reason, I have become a HUGE fan of shrimp.  I never really felt that I craved certain foods, but lately, I feel like I'm craving shrimp.  Not a bad thing necessarily, but when you can't find the nutrition information listed for a restaurant, it's a tad frustrating.

CME and I had dinner at Logan's Texas Roadhouse tonight.  He had a craving for steak (which is really unusual for him - probably been at least a year since he's had one) and I've been craving shrimp for a couple of days now.  It's hard to believe, but shrimp has definitely been on my brain.  For someone who rarely ate any shellfish at all...it's what I WANT now.  -shrug-

I ordered the Southwest Grilled Shrimp appetizer as my entree.  It was a perfect choice, in my opinion.  There were 6 shrimp on the skewer and I asked for them to add just a little extra seasoning.  (I. like. flavor.)  The avocado, corn, tomato and black bean "salsa" that it came with was good too.  I didn't eat any of the tortilla chips.  Anyway...I've tried to find the nutrition information since I've been home, but haven't been successful.  I thought restaurants HAD to make the nutritional information known.  I guess I could use the "Contact Us" form, but I want it at my fingertips!  LoL  The only thing I can compare it too to try to figure out nutritional information is Applebee's grilled shrimp skewer.  (90 cals/14 g protein)  Problem there is I don't know how many/how large of shrimp, etc. are included at Applebee's.  Regardless, grilled shrimp, avocado and black beans all have protein and are low cal/low fat, so I'm going to continue to believe I made a good choice.  It tasted yummy, for sure!

  1. This year is the deadline for all restaurants to have calorie/nutrition info visible on menus, I think. It's definitely frustrating!
