I went through my phone and realized I have a ton of food pictures so today’s post will be recapping my life lately in food. The food is the important stuff anyway, right?!
I felt bad going to Chopt without my son while he is away at camp since it’s his favorite place but hey, I wanted a salad.
I may be looking forward to fall running weather but I will miss dining outdoors when the season for doing so ends.
We had dinner outside on the water at Villa D’Aqua the other night which I had no idea is considered a top outdoor dining spot on Long Island.
The food was great too which I guess everyone but me knew about in advance as the restaurant was packed.
I missed the pictures of our appetizer and salad but I caught the end of my pasta primavera. Pasta cooked perfectly al dente is delicious. I am not a huge pasta eater but then I randomly order it in restaurants and then wonder why I don’t eat it more often.
When there are two kinds of chocolate cake on the menu, you order one of each to share (yes, sometimes I share). One slice was a chocolate mousse cake and the other slice was a chocolate fudge torte. I think we liked the torte the best but both slices of cake were very good.
Wild Ginger is hit or miss with their sushi. This was more of a miss night than a hit night but still good if that makes sense. We also ordered salads and dumplings (the dumplings were part of the miss night).
I actually had two Red Mango parfaits for lunch in the last few days but only took a picture of one of them.
I always layer my parfait the exact same way:
- berries on the bottom
- original yogurt in the middle
- berries, pumpkin flax granola and dark chocolate chips
- original yogurt
- pumpkin flax granola and dark chocolate chips on top
This particular Red Mango parfait actually had a drop of pomegranate yogurt on top for change, just for fun.
After tackling a ton of Bar Mitzvah details yesterday (OMG the photo montage and the other things that required me to sort through 10,000 photos is basically complete), I went with my dad to pick up dinner from Mother Kelly’s.
Mother Kelly’s has been in business since 1969. They no longer have a sit down restaurant but their take-out business is insane. The same guys since I am a little girl are still the owners and still behind the counter.
They gave us a slice of spinach pizza to share while waiting for our order.
Not the best picture but I had the spaghetti squash primavera baked with mozzarella cheese on top.
I saw on the menu though that they now have butternut squash noodles which I must try next time!
And now it’s Monday! Have a great week. 🙂life lately in food! #recenteats #redmango #motherkellysli #outdoordining #chocolatecake #sushi #weekend Click To Tweet
