Date Night Recap: Basta Pasta

Last night Mike and I went out on a dinner date! We went to  Basta Pasta a new to us restaurant in the area! I  loved it!

I love how every meal started out like Olive Garden with  fresh salad and bread sticks!

Mike ordered fettuccine Alfredo for his entrée and I chose Seafood Marinara. I definitely picked a winner. This meal came with big sea scallops, large shrimp, and huge lumps of crab meat! It was supposed to be served over linguine, but I noticed in the menu a note saying they will happily switch out whole wheat or gluten-free pasta upon request… FOR FREE! How awesome is that? Most restaurants that offer that option charge an extra few dollars and I really appreciated that they want to suit every customer’s diet!

We really liked out experience at Basta Pasta and I definitely think we will go again in the future!

After dinner we rented a movie and called it a night!

This morning I started my day with Raisin Bran and a banana in some milk. It was nice to switch it up a bit!

We also have been discussing our plan for Nashville since we leave on Thursday morning! I am so excited! Although we will not be able to complete the half marathon, I think we will have a fun vacation in store for us! We are going with 2 friends and I am already counting down! We have quite the road trip ahead of us (11 hours) and I couldn’t be more excited!! 🙂

Question of the day:

Have  you done any spring cleaning? It feels so good to get organized again!
