Date Night!

We were so blessed with an offer from friends for dinner and child care. Our lives have been so crazy lately, we just needed to get out. We made it an evening of fun and a progressive dinner. Some of the wait staff thought this was a great idea (and got decent tips) others thought we were not worth their time and put their energy elsewhere. None-the-less we had a wonderful time.

Our adventure started with horsd'oeuvres at Red Lobster. We had the Parrot Isle Jumbo Coconut Shrimp Hand-dipped in Red Lobster's signature batter, then tossed in coconut and fried golden brown. Served with piƱa colada sauce. You can't beat their Coconut Shrimp. It is so good and no one else has that wonderful sauce.

For dinner we went to Olive Garden. We had Steak Gorgonzola-Alfredo*
Grilled beef medallions drizzled with balsamic glaze, served over fettuccine tossed with spinach and gorgonzola-alfredo sauce. We enjoyed the salad and bread sticks. For some reason I didn't like the beef with the alfredo. It must be that I always have chicken.

Dessert was at Giuseppe's. A local Italian Restaurant. We had Tiramisu and Spumoni. They were both delicious and a perfect way to end our evening.

The night was wonderful.

We returned home and heard the great stories of the adventures our children children had from the evening and then we took the dogs to the back yard. We looked up at the sky which was clear and beautiful. The stars were so bright. We were thankful for the God that made us and brought us together and our wonderful friends and family that support us through life. What an amazing gift!
