Date night started out innocently enough.
We headed to Park Avenue in Winter Park for dinner at 310 Park South.
(Yes, I’m actually wearing shorts! Eek.)
After this morning’s crampy run, I was determined to keep myself hydrated today, and ordered water to drink immediately when we sat down.
The addition of the cucumber slice to my ice water was so neat. Drinking a lot of water is actually pretty hard for me, but I think sprucing it up with cucumber, lemon, lime or orange slices might make it more appealing.
For my entree I ordered a vegetable sandwich with fresh mozzarella on a whole wheat kaiser roll.
I ordered my sandwich strictly for the fresh mozzarella and it didn’t disappoint.
Ryan opted for the New York strip steak, which came with purple mashed potatoes!
We both cleared our plates. We’re tough like that. 😉
After dinner, our dessert extravaganza began.
At 310 Park South, we ordered Tollhouse pie, which was essentially a chocolate chip cookie pie with Haagen-Daz vanilla ice cream, whipped cream and a ribbon of fudge.
I need to replicate this chocolate chip cookie pie! So good.
For dessert number two, we headed to Jeremiah’s Italian Ice.
We were both relatively full by this point, but since we were out near Jeremiah’s which is a bit of a drive from our apartment, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to stop by for a cold treat.
We shared a small cookies ‘n’ cream + scoop froggy frog (aka mint chocolate chip) gelati.
On our way back to our apartment, we saw that Raphsodic Cooperative Company, a local vegan bakery, was open.
According to their website, all of Raphsodic’s products “are rigorously researched to be guaranteed vegan and cruelty and animal testing free.”
When we stepped inside, we were greeted by friendly faces and the most amazing smell of cinnamon and freshly baked cookies. We stopped in just to check the place out and didn’t intend to buy anything, but that completely changed when we saw the “cookie sammies,” which were to cookies sandwiched together with creamy icing.
Ryan selected a kitchen sink cookie sammie for us to share.
This cookie sandwich was demolished before we pulled into our driveway! 🙂
1 date night + 2 people + 3 desserts = 2 veeeery full bellies
We’re finishing up date night with a movie and cuddle time with Miss Sadie.
See ya in the morning!
