Salmon and Sangria with the Pappa
*Thanks for all the sweet comments on our scary situation last night, you guys are the best!!!
Tonight Hubby and I drove down to Palm Springs, which is only 30 minutes from us, to meet up with my Dad and Step Mom for dinner. We started with some delicious Sangria and then looked over the menu.
The restaurant my Pop chose was called Zini Cafe Med an Italian and Mediterranean Cuisine the perfect flare of European Style.
I decided to try the Handkerchiefs; Thin Sheets of Pasta that wrapped up a delicious piece of Salmon with Cannellini beans and Pecoriono.
First we all shared a plate of brochette, it was a little small for the four of us I am glad they brought out bread.
I had one half it was quite tasty, but the olives were a little to salty for me.
We sat outside on the patio, this place is so quaint and truly reminds me of a European cafe.
Doesn’t it look like a set from a movie?
My Dad is the best, he always gets me a little something every time we meet. He knows my love language ;). He bought me a wonderful Cook Book that I can’t wait to read. Thanks Daddy!
Dinner was divine! I have never had anything quite like this before. I loved the thin layered noodles, and this was the best Salmon I have ever tasted in my life!
The Salmon was so full of rich and wonderful flavors!
I had another glass of the yummy Sangria with dinner.
Hubby got the Marguerita Pizza, which I had a bite of and it was soooo good!
After we sat and chatted for 3 hours(we could talk forever) we went across the street to get some Cold Stone:).
I ordered a kids cup of Peanut Butter Ice cream, 1 Reese’s PB Cup, and Banana! I ate it with my taster spoon, it helps me to enjoy it more one little spoonful at a time.
It’s almost 11pm and I (unlike everyone else in the world ) have to work in the morning! I am going to try and get up a little early and start my pushup and sit up challenge and pray for a less SCARY week!!!!
Anyone else out there working tomorrow?????
