Friends I have to share with you my most awesome, wonderful, splendiferous, fantabulous, great experience my hubby, Dennis and I had with Carrabbas! I can’t say enough about how exactly much I enjoyed a unique evening out!
I spend a great deal of my day on twitter speaking to friends, entering giveaways, making new friends, and just enjoying yourself reading. Well 1 day the other day, probably Monday, because the older I become the more I forget, there was a tweet from Carrabbas. I don’t remember HIS exact tweet, however i needed to respond and tell HIM I had never been to Carrabbas restaurant.
Well he is named Jamie FYI! Jamie could not believe I needed not been. He informed me how good it is and made me promise I would personally try it out.
I discussed with my hubby and then he was willing to try and we decided Thursday would be good because we are going to already be out at appointments and ready to eat when done, and also my daughter enjoyed a date therefore we wouldn’t need to bring her along and dish out money on her to enjoy also! Yes I am cheap sometimes LOL!
I notified Jamie that we had picked Thursday to go and then he informed me to be certain to ask for the homeowner, Ben when we arrived. Jamie and I had fun bantering back and forth all of those other week on twitter and when Thursday came I was hyped and starving now for some Carrabbas!
Dennis and I entered the restaurant and asked for Ben since we were seated. Within a few minutes, Ben the homeowner arrived at our table to introduce himself. Our waitress Tamela had also introduced herself! I explained to Tamela how our first trip to Carrabbas came to exist and she was wonderful.
The lighting in the restaurant was dim for mood lighting but my husband has difficult seeing then and he got just a little frustrated trying to read the menu. I myself having never been was scrutinizing the menu as I had no clue a few things i felt like eating. The lovely Miss Tamela spent quite a long time going over the menu with my husband, especially the soups and salads, while he loves salads and that is certainly what he orders 99.9% of the time, while he ended up being doing! He started his meal with Homemade Tomato Basil soup then had the following for his meal:
Insalata Carrabba which is mixed greens with Mozarella and Romano Cheese, black olive, tomatoes, and red onions in vinagrette topped with grilled chicken. You will notice that in the first photo above.
I started my dinner with all the Chicken Noodle soup which had a great spicy flair into it and it also was great. I have to backtrack and say that I ordered iced tea to drink and lately iced tea has not tasted directly to me for whatever reason, but dzhxlx tea was great! For my meal I ordered Pasta Weesie which was specially prepared shrimp sauteed and in a lemon white sauce over fettuccine noodles. I discovered that this shrimp was tough and overcooked therefore i sent it back and asked for Carrabbas near me that is fettuccine alfredo tossed with grilled chicken, sauteed mushrooms and peas. Given that was a lot more like it. It had been very delicious and as you have seen inside the photo above exactly how much was left after i was done to adopt home! I am talking about I needed to save room for dessert.
Once dessert was completed so we were awaiting our check, Ben came over to the table again (he had also checked on us many times as well as had a nice talk to us) and graciously informed us that dinner was on him and Jamie and that they really wanted to do that for us! I had been somewhat overcome with emotion once i thanked Ben and Tamela our waitress.
