It’s Friday...let’s have a drink!

This week flew by…but no complaints here, TGIF! 

One of my goals on my 101 in 1001 is to eat at some non-chain local restaurants that I have never been to before, so last weekend we went to a nice Italian gourmet restaurant that is a couple towns over.  It was a little pricey but we were expecting that since we checked out the menu online ahead of time.  The food and service were decent, and overall we had a good experience. 

I ordered the Sweet Potato Pizza which was very very different.  I’m not sure I would recommend it as I was expecting more sweet potato flavor.  For desert I had the Banana Chocolate Chip Olive Oil panini…yes panini.  It was amazinggggg and I think I would go back again just to order that.  It’s  made with banana bread and chocolate and then all lightly grilled so it’s melty and just delicious.

For drinks…hubby got a really good lemonade/soda mixture that was full of alcohol but you couldn’t taste it.   I believe it was called a Sicilian Lemonade.  And I had a Melon Sparkler.  It was like a martini but instead of vodka it was made with Midouri Sour and a couple other liquors.  It was definitely a drink you had to sip slowly but I enjoyed it.  Best part…coconut rimmer! 


Excuse the phone pic…hubby took this because I was too embarrassed to take pictures with my actual camera. 


Oh weekend, how good it is to see you!  Happy Friday!
