Date Night!Posted: January 14, 2010
Nick and I just got back from a great date night! To get you to the good part, and to get me to bed on time I am going to breeze through most of my day to get to dinner. Don’t worry you didn’t miss much!
1/3 of a grapefruit in slices.
Leftover acorn squash flowers.
Then I had the rest of my grapefruit and way too many handfuls of these when I got home for my afternoon snack.
Thankfully the area in Harbor East has a ton of restaurants in it so we settled on a Lebanease restaurant called the Lebanese Taverna.
We started off with WW pita like bread and an olive oil dipping sauce – I ate way too much of this pita over the night.
I had no idea what to order so Nick and I both thought that Mezza plates were the way to go. He got the traditional and I got the vegetarian.
Such a pretty presentation!
This was great. Just enough food after all of those graham crackers. You can see how I ate so much pita, so many dips.
We couldn’t try and new restaurant without having dessert. We went with one of the “lighter” options.
Ice Cream Trio, but I really had my eye on the molten chocolate coffee cake. It would have been too rich and made me feel sickly.
Close to far : vanilla-cardamom (my favorite), pistachio-orange (where was the orange?), honey (Nick’s favorite).
Overall we both agreed that the mezza were a great choice because we found things we both liked and some things we liked but wouldn’t order again.
And with that I am off to bed with lots of yummy food in my belly and a lovely night with my love!
Good Night All!
