A delicious date night

I know I blog about adventures with our son. But every once in a while, I love leaving him with an adoring grandparent or two so that my husband and I can have a quiet meal or sometimes even an overnight away. We try to do this once a month, although admittedly we're not always successful.

A couple of weeks ago for our anniversary, we headed to our favorite restaurant in Columbus, Tre Bicchieri. I blogged about our dinner there and other Columbus dining options at the Indiana Insider this week.  We're lucky that even though we live an hour away from Indianapolis, we have several great local restaurants here in town that are perfect for kid-free evenings.

Nothing says date night like having a cocktail to start the meal! This is one of Tre Bicchieri's signature drinks: Tuscan Lemonade. Vodka, limoncello and lemonade. It was dangerously good!

These scallops melted in my mouth. And while I over-did the appetizers and couldn't finish that pile of risotto, it was heavenly the next day for lunch.

Kid-free time continues this weekend when we head to Connecticut for a friend's wedding. I openly admit to being thrilled to be boarding an airplane with a People magazine and my knitting needles instead of a 20 pound bag of toys and treats to keep the arrow entertained. Although I know we'll miss him!
This post is a part of Wanderfood Wednesday at Wanderlust and Lipstick.


  1. Yes, I do believe the cream cheese is what sets apart the chicken tortilla soup recipe and I can't wait to hear how you like it. That pile of risotto and scallops? I could eat that right now. And wash it down with the cocktail (sounds wicked). Enjoy the kid free time!

  2. Both the drink and the scallops sound divine. Wish I could visit this restaurant.

  3. Sounds like a great night. Great food and drink is so important while celebrating!
    Hope you have a great, kid free time at your friend's wedding.

  4. Can I have those scallops, please. They look delicious.
