* I even used up some more yarn stash! In fact, I received this variegated yarn in a Rav yarn swap and used most of it in one of the traveling scarves I received. The solid green yarn is from a Coastal granny afghan I made. Isn't it amazing how you remember this tidbits? :-)
Today, I had a late lunch at the Olive Garden with a group of friends. I have never eaten so many courses before. Good thing I only had that smoothie all day. Plus I took some of mine home. It was fun to hang out with them.
We shared an appetizer:
Grilled Chicken Flatbread
Grilled chicken, mozzarella cheese, roasted red peppers and basil on flatbread
crust with alfredo sauce and garlic spread.
And of course the Olive Garden's Never-Ending Salad Bowl and Breadsticks:
Garden-fresh salad and warm garlic breadsticks.
One friend and I both ordered this entree:
Grilled Shrimp Caprese
Grilled marinated shrimp served over angel hair pasta with melted mozzarella,
fresh basil and tomatoes in a garlic-butter sauce.
Another person ordered this entree:
Parmesan-Polenta Crusted Chicken
Sautéed chicken breast topped with a toasted parmesan and
polenta crust, served with stuffed ravioli filled with four
Italian cheeses tossed in a parmesan cream sauce.
I couldn't reach the other entree to photograph it.
Moving on to our drinks:
Strawberry-Mango Limonatas, Bellini Peach-Raspberry Iced Tea,
and water, water, water!
A closer look at the Strawberry-Mango Limonata. Doesn't it look delicious?
Then we had the nerve to order desserts:
Dolcini: :"Little Dessert Treats"
Strawberry & White Chocolate Cream Cake and
Limoncello Mousse with Vanilla Cookie
Soft, traditional Italian doughnuts dusted with powdered sugar,
served with chocolate sauce for dipping.
So now you know what I had for my late lunch with friends. What will my dinner be? Freshly squeezed air. :-)
