So, we decided (after over an hour of Religious Ed with ten, 7/year olds) that we were hungry for Italian.
But, being a sushi-chick myself, I wasn’t familiar with any Italian restaurants in my area… so, we drove around and there it appeared before our tired eyes… Carrabba’s Italian Grill 🙂
started us off with their warm bread with herb & olive oil… mmmmm….
The big guy’s meal came with a side of salad… with crumbled blue cheese (I think)
I shared my bowl of Minestrone with JRoc…
After scarfing down our soup and salad, I was instructed to down some grappa (aka. fire water) in one shot. Seriously, this stuff is sooooo strong… it completely burned my throat and killed all nerves that ran through my face.
They were bringing out the food even before I got any feeling back to my face…
And this is my Lobster Ravioli… gosh, this was sooooo creamy and tasty, it helped me recover from my “grappa incident” in record time…
And the big guy ordered… pasta. I cannot, for the life of me, recall what it was called (because I was focusing on my Lobster Ravioli… can you blame me? Look above… see how deeeelicious it looks!). I think it was served with… chicken.
After I finished inhaling my most scrumptious entrée (and my boys with their pasta dishes), it was time for… DESSERT!
The man ordered Cannoli… I stole a bite out of it and it was Super YUMMY!
… and my little bambini chose the… Bambini Sundae 🙂
… and once again, I had the best dessert of them all… the most glorious, Bacino Dessert Rosa… it’s butter cake topped with a layer of strawberries & bananas, a layer of vanilla pudding, fresh whipped cream and decorated with a slice of strawberry. Mmmmmmm….
We ended our meal with espresso….
We enjoyed this most Delizioso meal at…
