It seems only fitting that a food blogger would move to a new state just in time for restaurant week. I’ve had the chance to try two amazing restaurants with great deals and good company, once with family and once with a wonderful group of women and new friends.
Each person was able to choose an appetizer and entrée for $15 each. Mama B. and I also ordered our cucumber-citrus skinny margaritas to start. They are just too good to pass up!
Bobby and Baby B. were also in attendance, and Bobby and I decided to share our appetizer selections. He went with the herb hummus, served with pita bread, tomato, cucumber, kalamata olives, onions and feta.
I went with the daily market soup, which was a spicy chicken tortilla. And they meant spicy! We had to request some extra pita bread to help put out the fire in our mouths. It was delicious, though.
Mama Bender and I decided to share the entrées. I chose the shrimp teriyaki brown rice bowl, which is served with veggies, sesame and avocado. It had just the right amount of sauce and flavor.
Mama B. opted for the spaghetti squash casserole, which is made with fresh mozzarella, organic tomato and zucchini. She had raved about it before and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked it. We might have to recreate this one at home sometime this fall or winter.
All of this food for $15/person made for an extra delightful restaurant week experience. I encourage every single one of you to come visit me in Arizona so that we can go to True Food Kitchen. It’s rapidly becoming a favorite restaurant!
Hope you’re having a wonderful Saturday so far! Any big weekend plans?
We finally got our roof rat car back and she is in great shape. We ended up taking her to a different mechanic that was insurance-approved and were absolutely dumbfounded when they said they could fix it for $67.00, which meant we didn’t even need insurance. The other repair shop was prepared to charge us $1400 or more! If you live in the Valley and have car trouble, take your car to Ric’s. I can’t rave about them – and their honesty – enough. Now that the road is ours again, we’ll be doing some more house hunting this morning and then coming back to watch Northwestern football.
HAPPY FIRST DAY OF FALL!!
