Mr. Serious and I celebrate our 12th wedding anniversary today. We tried to list off the major occurrences and events during those 12 years. Suffice it to say, it’s a lot!
We decided that we were going to do something, just the two of us for our anniversary. It didn’t work out to be gone for our actual anniversary, but we are going to Jamaica in January! Yes, we found a travel agent, booked and paid for our travel and got a sitter (aka grandma) to fly in and watch the girls. But, we couldn’t let the day go uncelebrated, even with B in tow. We were invited to try the bison at Ted’s Montana Grill, so I thought it was a perfect time to go.
I don’t think she minds getting us all to herself while her sisters are at parent’s night out!
We started with the homemade chips. They were warm and yummy…and I think B ate half the basket!
I had a bison filet. I never thought I would order, let alone like a bison filet, but it was fabulous. It was oh, so tender and delicious. And, I don’t know how they do it, but their kale salad is absolutely amazing. It’s so tender and flavorful. When I visit Ted’s I try to get their asparagus, too. It’s not overly seasoned and still crispy.
We went to the Kennesaw location (2500 Cobb Place Lane, Suite 210) and they have bison short ribs on Saturdays. I’m certain I’ve never had a short rib and Mr. Serious let me have a try. It was fall-off-the-bone tender.
I’m not ashamed to say that we both (with a little help from B) pretty much finished our entire meals. We did go with an appetite, but everything was so delicious.
If you’ve never tried bison, maybe take a special occasion like an anniversary at Ted’s Montana Grill (they will send you an anniversary coupon for a free appetizer if you sign up for their emails). With the upcoming New Year, make it your resolution to eat adventurous. Be bold in your cuisine by switching beef for bison to experience not only a sweet, juicy, tender and delectable meat, but enjoy the health benefits of the lean, nutritious protein.
They even offer hearty classics prepared with bison to revive authentic American entrees with classic comfort food like Karen’s Flying-D Bison Chili, Bison Meatloaf, Bison Pot Roast or a classic burger.
It was a delicious meal and great way to celebrate our anniversary! Now, do you think we will be able to get some bison in Jamaica?
What were you up to this week?
Since the button code stopped working many moons ago, I took it out. But, if you are adding your link to my link list, please, as a courtesy, add a link back to my site so people can explain and link up themselves if they’d like. After all, that’s the point of the link up!
It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids. Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information.

*Thank you to Ted’s for our anniversary dinner. We give them a lot of our money throughout the year, so it was a nice treat to be treated!
