Confession! I don’t love seafood. I wish I did, because there are so many dishes you can make with fish, shrimp, and lobster, but I just can’t get past the smell and textures of most seafood. But every once in a while I will go to Red Lobster so my seafood loving family can get indulge in their love of seafood. (We have limited seafood options here in Utah, and Red Lobster is pretty much it, haha.)
The only thing that convinces me to go to Red Lobster, are the Cheddar Bay Biscuits. I could eat my weight in those biscuits! And thankfully, there’s always soup, salad, or chicken on the menu for me too.
