Carrabba's Giveaway

*** This giveaway is now CLOSED. Please check back here (on my main blog) after May 31st to see if you are the winner ***

This is a sponsored review from BlogHer and Carrabba's.

Recently I was given a Carrabba's gift card to go try out their "Less is Amore" menu, featuring smaller portion options. I was delighted, because I'm the kind of person who likes to have both dinner and dessert when I go out to eat... but often the portions are so large that I over-eat and then I am too full to have any dessert!


So, what my husband and I often end up doing is we order one large plate and then share it so we can then enjoy some dessert. The bad thing about this is that we have to agree on the same entree. Sometimes it's not a problem at all, but sometimes we have trouble coming to an agreement. Carrabba's "Less is Amore" option is perfect for us because we can both get smaller portions and get what we're in the mood for, without having to compromise.

For those who have never been to Carrabba's, they offer Authentic Italian food made with only the freshest ingredients. We ordered the Grilled Salmon and Chicken Marsala. Each entree comes with soup or salad and a side dish. I ordered the sauteed spinach and my husband ordered the garlic mashed potatoes. Everything was delicious and well prepared. I particularly enjoyed the spinach, but if you ask my husband, I also had a large portion of his mashed potatoes too! The best part? We both got to order what we were in the mood for, and we still had room for dessert at the end!
