To celebrate Heather starting a new chapter in her life (they are moving to Virginia for a new job), we had a night out on the town with the girls. Heather, Barbara, Amber, and I got together for a yummy dinner at Mimi's Cafe, which I have always wanted to visit. We didn't think about cameras until the food was long gone, but I assure you it was incredible! For most of the evening, the table was completely covered with food! Now that's my type of dinner!
We split some appetizers to start, sharing the Mimi's Trio (spinach cheese dip with toasted parmesan bread, fried chicken tenders with marinara sauce, and fried zucchini with ranch...yum). Barb and Amber went healthy and ordered a few types of hummus, which came with the world's hardest pita chips and some cucumbers for dipping. I tended to go more for the fried plate, for some unknown reason. Then our side salads arrived while waiting for the rest of our meal.
Amber and Barbara split a HUGE salad that looked amazing with balsamic chicken and fresh strawberries. I love restaurant salads and never know why they taste so much better than at home! I got some chicken and artichoke ravioli in a marinara sauce but didn't end up eating much of it. I wanted to save some for the man at home (his request), and I was full from all of the good food thus far! Heather had a shrimp pasta dish that looked amazing. We all had a great evening, conversing about girl things. I just smiled and nodded every time kid stories came up, since I don't have a ton of information to contribute to that conversation. Yet.
Thanks for a fun night out, gals. We should do it again!
