I can't believe I've gone so long without blogging! Believe me, though, the lack of posting does NOT mean there has been a lack of activity in my kitchen. If anything, I've been busier and that has lead to no time for talking about it.
I'm sorry guys. I'm going to try really hard not to let it happen again.
Has anyone else eaten at Macaroni Grill lately? I was a little disappointed with the one near to me. It's the first time we've gone out to eat dinner, the four of us, in quite sometime--usually we like to do lunch with Nate one day during the week. So when we went out, I was excited to find a Lobster Ravioli on the menu. Having just been to the beach last week with my mom, I was still in a seafood mood. After the horrible service and we finally got our food, I was seriously let down. I do NOT recommend ordering this at all. It was bland and the raviolis were dried on top. I tried Nate's meal, and it was the complete opposite of mine--it was an assault on the taste buds!
For some reason, I still wanted a good Italian meal that I didn't have to clean up after. :) My sister had a softball home game on Thursday. Afterwards, my Mom, the girls and I went out to eat since it was nearly 6 o'clock and it would be almost another hour before the girls and I made it home and sat down for dinner. I get my love of Italian food from my Mom, so deciding on Carrabba's wasn't really a tough choice. I ordered the Manicotti and was very pleased. I really love cheese. :) The bread was hot and the olive oil and herbs went perfect with the meal. Definitely worth the trip!
I know I just got back, but it is time for me to depart again. My mind is still in the kitchen and my girls are wreaking havoc in the living room. I'm actually preoccupied with the cupcakes I'm trying to perfect for my sister-in-law's baby shower next month. I know I won't be able to stop thinking about them until I get them to the point where I'm satisfied with them. :)
By the way, yay for Friday!!! Pizza and a movie night here in my house! :)
