A Milestone.

T2 passed a major milestone this evening. He refused the kids menu at Bob Evans.

"I want an adult menu!"

Ok, fine.

"I want RIBS!"

Alrightythen!

After years and years of him ordering the exact same thing every single time we go to Bob's, this came out of the blue. He'd been on the couch most of the day sleeping because he didn't feel well. I woke him up and asked him if he was hungry and he said voraciously "YES! I'm STARVING!"

So we went to our usual dinner hangout.

When he announced that he wanted BBQ ribs for dinner, I was skeptical to say the least. His usual fare is the Little Farmer's Breakfast with no eggs and extra homefries. Sometimes he doesn't even finish that! But whatever, let him give it a go. He not only finished it but he practically sucked the bones dry!

It seems the era of the Kids Menu is over for us. It's akin to when the baby bed mattress went in the yardsale and when the last set of training wheels came off.

My little carnivore!

Oh, and did you know that the Bob Evans Slow Roasted Chicken Noodles is only 7.5 Weight Watcher's Points? It's delish! Now, I can't determine if that includes the mound of mashed potatoes that they pour them over or not but even if it doesn't include them, it would only make it 12 points. Not too shabby for dinner! I got my info from Dottie's Weight Loss Zone . Who needs diet pill reviews?

Think he is ready to take on Famous Dave's BBQ tour (St. Louis ribs, Georgia chopped pork, and Texas brisket)?
