|Had a great night out with my friend, Cathy, and sister, Janet, last Saturday. I live in CT, so I went out closer to where they live and slept over my sister’s house. I needed a break and as I found out Dinosaur did a great job with his daddy. I may have to go out more often.So, we started our girl’s night adventure at Double O’s in Wappinger Fall’s NY. I have never been there before and truly wish there was one in my town. The food was beyond amazing, it was presented in such a gorgeous manner and the taste was out of this world. Just look at what we ate.
My sister, who is really doesn’t care what people think about her. which can be scary at times, but I love her for it. She is intelligent and fierce, but loves her family. You know how sisters are, we may fight, we may get angry at each other, the but we will always love each other. She got the Barbecue Ranch Chicken Salad
Cathy, who started out as a co-worker, has become a dear friend,I can tell her anything and she will totally understand. We have sent each other crazy texts and wild photos. She knows more about my wild and dark side than anyone. She has always been there for me and I can’t express how much that means to me. I love how honest she is and will always tell me the truth. She had the Grilled Chicken Tostado Salad.
I had the Benny’s Maui Salad without the nuts…can we say…YUMMY.
After our belly’s were filled we took a drive over to Paula’s Wine Bar.
Again, I have never been there, but was impressed with the design and atmosphere.The bartender was so funny and knowledgeable.The appetizers were PERFECT. Now, being allergic to dairy, I LOVE when a restaurant provides olive oil to dip your bread in. Paula’s not only provided the olive oil, it was decadent and tasty. I wished I lived closer. I may have to just visit my sister so I can go to Paula’s wine bar again.
We sat outside and talked about life, our husbands’, the economy and other sorted topics that will REMAIN secret to only us. Yeah, it was a fabulous night.
Then just this Friday I went out with my other friend who lives in my town. Actually we met when she and her fiancé moved in right next to us. LITERALLY. We hit it off and have been friends ever since. We don’t get to see each other too often, even though we live two blocks away from each other.
With Kit I can be a completely silly and wild and she will join right in, that’s what makes a good friend. I don’t have to control my thoughts or worry I might offend or embarrasses her. We wind up laughing so hard our stomach’s ache. Even though I was starting to feel ill on Friday, I did not want to cancel, I need my girl night outs whenever I can get them.
We started off our night at Sesame Seed in Danbury, CT. It was a beautifully decorated place, very cozy and inviting. The best part they have a Mediterranean menu, which meant most of their food was dairy-free. I hope they are still around when Dinosaur is older, he would love to eat there; if his tastes don’t change. They are NOT a family restaurant.
The appetizer of tabuli was out of this world.
I got the Maui Maui Marengo
Kit got the Cajun Maui Mau
Then we headed off to the Golf Quest for some mini golf at night, also located in Danbury CT. I took some crazy pics and those will be for our eyes only, we sure will get a lot of laughs as look back on those. Dinosaur was NOT good for hubby this time, which makes me very sad. He cried for over an hour till he fell asleep in his daddy’s arms.
