Good morning. I’m writing this as I wait for the coffee to perk. Its Monday, ugg. I have not cooked in days, or so it seems. I remember it like it was yesterday, because it was yesterday, and I went out to eat at Emilio’s in Commack. Saturday I managed to go out to eat at the Cheese Cake Factory but Jen didn’t really seem up to it. I killed too many brain cells this weekend drinking and do not remember what I ate on Friday. What day was it that I made Surf and Turf ?
The Cheesecake Factory we went to was in Bay Shore. I used to love going there and trying new things but I was always disappointed that the food did not taste as good as it sounded on the menu. It looked great when it came to the table but then tasted blah. Now, the food or menu no longer impresses me but everyone else I was with loved it. The place was packed so it must be good food. It was just me. It was not bad food, just not yummy I have to go back food. I had the Cuban Sandwich and it was very good but I was disappointed in the cheese cake. Can you imagine?! Jen didn’t like the cheese cake either but she is not feeling well.
Jennifer is still in pain with her back so she has not been eating much. She ordered her favorite salad at the Cheese Cake Factory. It was the Barbeque Ranch Chicken Salad without tomatoes. She does not like and is allergic to tomatoes. When it came out it looked great and she said she was going to eat the whole thing. That was surprising because its a huge salad. In the end she ate most of it and we took the rest home.
Sunday I had plans to go see the Mets play at City Field. It was a beautiful but hot day and even though they didn’t win it was a lot of fun. I ate lots of food including two hot dogs, chicken fingers, French fries, Cracker Jacks and drank beer. It was all yummy! Then I find out, on my way home, that I was supposed to be going out to eat at Emilio’s Restaurant in Commack! Yikes!
I love Emilio’s and I usually get a big meal there. I have already tried the mussels marinara with linguini and all the homemade pasta dishes. All their dishes are fantastic. Yesterday, I was way too full to eat much so I ordered a salad for my main course. We also ordered a chopped salad for the table. My sister in-law was there with my nephew and my mother in-law and Sam. I did not take part in any of the chopped salad they ordered but I have had it many times before and it is delicious. For dinner, I had the beet salad. This salad comes with mixed spring greens and chopped beets, shredded goat cheese and sugared pecans on top. The dressing is a balsamic vinaigrette that is very good and served on the side. I ate only a quarter of it and then boxed the rest up to take home. Jen was in a lot of pain so she didn’t eat much either. She ordered a big plate of pasta Bolognese that came home with us too. My leftover salad from last night and the Cuban sandwich from the Factory is what’s for lunch today.
Speaking of lunch, I am off to work. Have a great day!
