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 much I enjoyed an exclusive evening out!
I spend a lot of my day on twitter speaking to friends, entering giveaways, making new friends, and simply enjoying yourself reading. Well some day last week, probably Monday, since the older I become the more I forget, there was clearly 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 menu.
Well he is named Jamie FYI! Jamie could not believe I needed not been. He explained how good it really is and got me to promise I would try it out.
I discussed with my husband and he was willing to try and we decided Thursday will be good because we are going to be out at appointments and able to eat when done, as well as my daughter enjoyed a date so we wouldn’t have to bring her along and dish out money on her to consume too! Yes I am cheap occasionally LOL!
I notified Jamie we had picked Thursday to go and then he told me to make sure to request the homeowner, Ben once we arrived. Jamie and that i had fun bantering back and forth the remainder of the week on twitter and by the time Thursday came I was hyped and starving now for a few Carrabbas!
Dennis and that i entered the restaurant and asked for Ben since we were seated. Within minutes, Ben the property owner came to 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 hubby has difficult seeing then and then he got just a little frustrated attempting to look at the menu. I myself having never been was scrutinizing the menu when i had no idea what I felt like eating. The lovely Miss Tamela spent quite a long time going over the menu with my partner, particularly the soups and salads, while he loves salads and that is what he orders 99.9% of the time, while he ended up doing! He started his meal with Homemade Tomato Basil soup and after that had these for his meal:
Insalata Carrabba that is mixed greens with Mozarella and Romano Cheese, black olive, tomatoes, and red onions in vinagrette topped with grilled chicken. You can see that in the first photo above.
I began my dinner with all the Chicken Noodle soup that had a great spicy flair to it plus it was great. We have to backtrack and claim that I ordered iced tea to drink and lately iced tea has not yet tasted right to me for reasons unknown, but dzhxlx tea was great! For my meal I ordered Pasta Weesie which had been specially prepared shrimp sauteed and in a lemon white sauce over fettuccine noodles. I came across the shrimp was tough and overcooked so I sent it back and asked for Carrabbas menu that is fettuccine alfredo tossed with grilled chicken, sauteed mushrooms and peas. Given that was more like it. It absolutely was very delicious and as you can see inside the photo above exactly how much was left when I was done to take home! After all I needed to save lots of room for dessert.
Once dessert was completed and that we were awaiting our check, Ben came up to the table again (he had also checked on us repeatedly and also experienced 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 people! I was a little overcome with emotion once i thanked Ben and Tamela our waitress.
