Boston Market still fine alternative

It seems like the more I cook around the holidays, the more I also want to get out ... and since I blew all my money buying my kids Rock Band (damn Microsoft for providing a microphone for tone-deaf kids-- that neighbor kid will be the death of me), eating out also means eating cheap.

La Casita has been a regular stop this past week.

I've been pretty good at avoiding fast food ... the exception was last night. The family went to Boston Market on Galley and Academy. I hadn't been there for a while, and the first thing I noticed was that the spruced up the place. Boston Market, and back when it started as Boston Chicken, was a kind of all-plastic dining room that looked like you could just hose it down to clean it. Now, they have booths, with real upholstery.

The food's about the same. Very moist chicken. Good mashed potato and gravy. A good value, I think. Fed the family for about $20.

But, of course, it's no La Casita.
