    Default QOTD 4/24

    When you go out to eat at a restaurant, do you usually order an appetizer and/or a dessert?

    I LOVE appetizers, but don't usually order unless a. I'm starving or b. its a long, relaxing dinner

    Dessert is rare too, except these days I want it all the time

    We order appetizers here and there, especially when we're out with friends or have a coupon. I only order dessert maybe once or twice a year at restaurants and usually it's because I went there specifically for something (like fried ice cream at the Mexican place by our house)

    I much prefer salty/savory over sweet as a general rule so I'm into appetizers over dessert. I'm like you Ashley; rarely order dessert out at a restaurant. If we get an appetizer or not is not a consistent thing. It's usually too much food to have an appetizer and a meal, especially for the price I don't find it to be justified. I almost always will add a salad though if it doesn't come with. I love a good salad.

    Only if I am out to eat with my family, DH isn't a fan of being in public spaces too much (unless it's something he wants to do pffft) so we usually just get the main course and go. When I am out with my family though, it is a long event and we take our time.

    We sometimes order appetizers. I never order dessert. We love to go to Applebee's after 9:00 for their half priced apps. We will go and order a few appetizers. We can eat for about $15 and bring home leftovers!

    Never dessert. Unless we are out with the IL's or something.

    Sometimes DH and I will order an appy to share before the meal - or sometimes we will just order 3 appy's and have that for our meal We rarely eat out though. Maybe once every 4-6 months. Usually just on a special occasion or when my IL's are in town. When we were dating we used to eat out more, and we loved those appy combo's!

    I LOVE appies. I'm totally a savory girl too. I can't (and shouldn't) eat an appy AND a meal so I don't normally do that. I might share an appy with someone but more often when it's DH and I we share and appy AND share a meal. It works out great.

    I don't have much of a sweet tooth so I rarely get desert.

    We really only go to 2 restaurants now. One which has all day breakfast, in which case we just order our breakfasts. The second which is a buffet style pay by weight. At the second, we get desserts (especially since they have gluten free & soy free desserts for me ) which I can't say about a lot of other places. We also consider desserts if out with the family (especially if someone else is paying!)
