My journey along the yellow brick road to becoming an RD
You look so pretty all dressed up! :) Sounds like a fun night out & the food looks good! I prefer my bread with a little bit olive oil & spices. Mmm.
That dress looks awesome on you Chelsea! Abruzzi sounds like a great restaurant- good food AND good service is always a win in my books! As much as I enjoy bread with olive oil and vinegar, I still stand partial to bread with good ol' buttah...it's a classic! As for celebrating good news, we are definitely on the same page. To me it means a night out with good friend(s), a couple of drinks and of course yummy food. And it totally calls for going to a restaurant which I wouldn't go on a normal basis...makes the night feel all the more special and deserved!
I am a butter girl all the way. I actually just really don't like the taste of olive oil. What a fun way to celebrate!
So while your dinner looks pretty good, you look pretty damn fantastic! :-DI've never been to Abruzzi, but you make me want to try it! I seriously love gnocchi...I really need to try and make a homemade version one day.And I am all about fancy dinners to celebrate news. I'm pretty that's my first reaction whenever something big happens in my life: "ok! Where are we having the celebratory dinner?" Pretty much can't go wrong with food as celebration :-DI love olive oil and balsamic with my bread, but I wouldn't say no to butter either!
You look fantastic, Chelsea, and congratulations again! Good food and good company is definitely a great way to celebrate good news :)I have to admit that I'm a complete nooblet when it comes to picking out wine. I'm not much of a drinker, and to be completely honest I can't really tell a "good" wine from a "bad" one so I always have to have someone advise me. As for bread, my favorite way to enjoy it is definitely with butter. I'm not actually the biggest fan of olive oil, although a flavored one sounds interesting!
You are looking quite gorgeous in that dress, seriously so flattering on you! If I had been as hungry as you were when that olive oil and bread came... oh lawd, nothing would have stood in my way haha. So my answer to your first question is definitely olive oil only!Too bad the trout was slightly overcooked, but it sounds like the other parts of the dish made up for it... mmm gnocchi. <-- weirdest word to spell ever.
CONGRATS again! And OMG I love that dress - so hot!! Italian restaurants are my fave - especially because they bring out bread, and I totally prefer it with dipping oil!
I LOVE your dress! And I would seriously love to go to dinner with you someday because you always order the most delicious food! Seriously you are a such a foodie...its awesome!
I am so happy you asked about the bread! I was going to comment on how I love when a restaurant is still awesome and brings out the complimentary bread. I love it with olive oil or oil and vinegar :D This restaurant sounds amazing and so welcoming! And your dress girl- So cute!
LOVE your dress - super cute, so pretty! Gnocchi is one of my favorite things to order at an Italian restaurant and I'm always disappointed when it's not done right... Paired with fish, that sounds delic!
You dress is AMAZING!!
your dress is so gorgeous!! i like bread with olive oil and vinegar!
Looks like a great meal!
BEAUTIFUL dress, Chelsea! Your dinner at Abruzzi sounds (and looks!) like it was a perfect way to spend a much deserved celebratory evening! I'm so glad Lauren was able to join you, too--I'll be crossing my fingers that you end up working at the same hospital!I love trout, and I LOVE gnocchi, so your meal is calling my name. I'm not usually able to eat the bread when I go out to dinner (darn gluten), but occasionally a restaurant will bring a GF option, which always makes me SO happy. When that happens (or when I'm eating at home), I prefer mine with olive oil and garlic. However, nothing beats a spread of butter every now and then, too!Congrats again on the internship! <3
Girl, you look absolutely STUNNING! I love that dress on you! The dinner sounds great....love how the staff was so attentive! And I would have been all over that gnocchi! Love it!I love bread dipped in flavored oil....so much so that when they bring it to the table, I usually end up filling up on it before my entree even makes it out! LolI'm definitely a dinner out celebrator! Nothing like good news and good food! :D
