The Best Pasta May 18, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — Christine @ 2:03 am

     We recently took Elly out for dinner on the Cape Fear River because it was such a beautiful evening. There must have been a lot of ants out enjoying the nice weather too because Elly seemed to have a good deal of them in her pants. If you ever happen to join us at a restaurant we have a few new ground rules set by the behavior of our almost 2-year-old. We’ve adapted pretty quickly, hopefully you can as well.

It’s helpful to have your order ready, like yesterday. I’d think about going online ahead of time to check out that menu. Leisurely menu browsing and chit chat are not on the menu when dining with our sweet little lady. Elly is very passionate about certain things, like not sitting in a high chair for too long, especially if there’s a river in view. So, be ready to take Elly on a little stroll between courses or while waiting for the food to arrive. You can lure her back with the promise of some blueberries (or boo-ies as Elly calls them). Fine dining is out, places with kid cups and healthy kids menu items are all the rage. Oh, and the noisier, the better!

 We have discovered the best pasta in all of Wilmington.  It entertained a toddler while her parents were able to eat their whole meals.  The love Elly felt for that pasta is written all over her sweet face.

  1. We’re still wiping the pasta off that girl’s face.

    Looks like she might be storing a meatball or 2 in those cheeks.
