-Dessert Week, Fettuccine, Creamy Mushroom & Crispy Chicken Fritta [Refill] + Dolcini [Half]

Day 21, Meal 42

My Rating:

My Rating:For my final meal during Dessert Week, I went with a modified version of Day 7, Meal 14, which consisted of Fetuccine, Creamy Mushroom & Grilled Chicken, which rated at 8/10. This meal I swapped out the Grilled Chicken for some Crispy Chicken Fritta in Refill size fashion, so let’s see if the prior meal can be improved upon: Wow, this was ridiculous. I’ve certainly had mixed feelings and results with the Creamy Mushroom, so it’s always hit or miss. The lowest meal rated on 8 Weeks of Pasta included that so I’m always nervous. Well let me tell you […]

-Dessert Week, Spaghetti, Traditional Meat Sauce & Meatball [Refill] + Dolcini [Half]

Day 21, Meal 41

My Rating:

My Rating:For lunch today, I modified a Day 2 meal, except I forgo the sausage this time around. A Refill portion of Spaghetti, Traditional Meat Sauce & Meatball: Such a simple meal yet very delicious. It’s a classic for a reason. The Traditional Meat Sauce was excellent. All around great meal. 8/10. Okay, Dessert time… Dessert week is just about at an end! It’s been an incredible week of trying all the Dessert options available. The LAST option on the menu was the Dolcini, and fortunately (up to) ***5*** options are available. You can buy them individually for $2.99, 2 […]

-Dessert Week, Fettuccine, Alfredo & Crispy Chicken Fritta [Refill] + Pumpkin Cheesecake

Day 20, Meal 40

My Rating:

My Rating:Tonight, we had a family dinner at our local Olive Garden in Inverness, FL, including my girls Chloe & Olivia, my Mom & Dad, and two of my Aunt’s who flew in to visit. I think I’ve been out to eat with my mom only a handful of times in my life, so it was a VERY special occasion for her to come out with us. It was her first time ever visiting an Olive Garden, and same for one of my Aunt’s. It was nice that my wife Samantha was our server as well, which made the experience for […]

-Dessert Week, Rigatoni, Asiago Garlic Alfredo & Crispy Chicken Fritta [Refill] + Zeppoli [Half]

Day 20, Meal 39

My Rating:

My Rating:Lunch today was modified from Day 8, Meal 15, which also had Five Cheese Marinara and was rated an 8/10. Today’s version is simply Rigatoni, Asiago Garlic Alfredo & Crispy Chicken Fritta: This was very good, and I did enjoy the Crispy Chicken Fritta with it, although I’m fairly confident I would have liked it even more had it of had Crispy Shrimp Fritta 🙂 I rate this an 8/10 as well. DESSERT time! The 2nd to the last Dessert left on the menu to try is Zeppoli, described as “warm Italian doughnuts served with raspberry or chocolate sauce […]

-Dessert Week, Cavatappi, Asiago Garlic Alfredo/Traditional Marinara & Crispy Shrimp Fritta [Refill] + Warm Apple Crostata

Day 19, Meal 38

My Rating:

My Rating:Dinner tonight is an attempt to salvage a prior botched combination from Day 11, Meal 21: Cavatappi, Asiago Garlic Alfredo/Traditional Marinara & Crispy Shrimp Fritta. Not that there was anything wrong with that meal, but I realized AFTER eating it that it didn’t come as ordered since it was missing the Traditional Marinara portion. Now, considering I was doing 50/50 sauce week every meal back then, I have NO idea how I overlooked that, but I guess it just looked too delicious to even think about it. Anyways, let’s give it another attempt: It was good! I was happy […]
