There is nothing like spending time with your girls – there is time to bond, catch up, laugh and of course enjoy good food.
This past weekend I had the chance to spend time with 2 of my favorite girls… my young sister and her best friend.
We decided on a dinner and movie kind of night. Our restaurant of choice was Carrabas – it was my first time eating there and I was not disappointed.
To begin our meal we ordered some drinks – I’m always looking to try different kinds of Sangrias or Margaritas. I ordered the Peach Sangria and it was delicious, I mean I seriously could have gone for another glass.
Because we were saving room for dessert, we skipped the appetizer and went straight to the entree – however, our waitress did bring us some warm bread and oil mixed with herbs to dip in and soup or salad.
I chose spicy chicken soup.
For my main meal, I ordered the Chicken Bryan – which is described as “grilled chicken breast topped with tomatoes, cheese, basil and drizzled with lemon butter sauce”
I chose a side of Penne Pomodoro. It was really delicious – the chicken was nice and tender and flavored well.
Finally, we finished off our meal with two desserts. We tried the Tiramisu and Sogno Di Cioccolata/Chocolate Dream. It was really good….my favorite of the two was the chocolate dream.

After we filled our bellies we headed to the cinemas to watch the movie Acrimony. I love Tyler Perry movies and the film was okay, but it caused you to think deeply about certain things and what you allow in your life in terms of relationships . I did enjoy it because Taraji Henson was in it – she always does such a great job at bringing her characters to life. I may have to write my review on it later.
See you in the next post!
