Tonight, we met at Seasons 52 in Orlando for appetizers, drinks, and dessert.
Seasons 52 is a healthy grill and wine bar with a seasonally changing menu. It sounded like the perfect place to meet a bunch of healthy living bloggers.
Our evening started with a round of drinks. I ordered a glass of Chardonnay.
Each of us had eaten dinner (or snacked) before getting together, so we shared a bunch of appetizers instead of ordering entrees:
Golden Beets with Wasabi Dipping Sauce
Eggplant Flatbread with Mushrooms, Tomatoes, and Feta
Housemade Sonoma Goat Cheese Ravioli with roasted garlic and sweet basil in a light tomato broth
Kalymnos Greek Salad with Feta cheese, cucumbers, tomatoes, sliced red onions and kalamata olives
Even though I had already eaten dinner, I tried a little bit of everything that we ordered. What can I say, I can always eat!
Once we finished the appetizers, we ordered a second round of drinks. More Chardonnay for me!
And, then it was time for dessert… well, “mini indulgences.”
From the Seasons 52 website:
The whole concept of the mini indulgence is just that– indulgence in a smaller portion size. The desserts are designed to feature high-impact flavors and top quality ingredients, such as Belgian Callibut chocolate. Seasons 52 makes the real thing… dessert… in all its decadence, and then they put it into a shot-size glass, so you get to have all of the pleasure and none of the guilt– along with the chance to try more than one in a visit!
Not surprisingly, I chose the Carrot Cake, which was oh so heavenly! The cream cheese frosting was thick and sweet, and there was plenty of it!
Caitlin and me!
Gina and Julie!
Of course, a second Carrot Cake “mini indulgence” was a no-brainer.
What an awesome way to end the day. Great friends and great food!
I’m soooooo exhausted! GOOD NIGHT!!!!!
