Tonight we went out to eat. Yup, out to a restaurant and I stuck to my elimination phase rules and had a great meal and a nice night out; plus no dishes, woohoo!!!!!!
Hubby's birthday is coming up and we had planned to go to Tavola. Plans were made before I started this diet and I felt bad not going since Hubby was really looking forward to it. I called the restaurant earlier in the week and explained I was on a special diet and could only eat certain, limited foods. They were very helpful and accommodating on the phone and assured me that my dietary needs could be met :) Yay!
For an appetizer I had scallops, simply fried in olive oil with a little salt. Very simple but still delicious. Hubby had baked oysters with bacon, panko and Parmesan and thought they were delicious.
It is fresh made pasta done different ways depending on the night. Tonight it was made with house-made sausage, fennel, and tomato sauce. Hubby's comment was "the hand-made pasta was light, delicate, and delicious." He said "it is among the best he has had outside of Italy". High ratings. I couldn't taste it but will take his word for it :)
