Thanksgiving Dinner at Maggiano’s

We had the most amazing Thanksgiving Dinner yesterday at Maggiano’s at Northpark.

Here’s the menu…

And here is Al settling in to chow down!

For starters we had three kinds of bruschetta – tomato basil, bean, and artichoke hearts.

and two kinds of salad – Maggiano’s salad and chopped salad.

We had a choice of two of three – ham and mashed sweet potatoes, turkey and dressing with cranberry sauce, or some kind of fish.  We picked ham and mashed sweet potatoes,

and turkey and dressing.

We also had a choice of two pastas and two additional sides.  We picked angel hair pasta with meat sauce,

and 3-cheese ravioli for our pastas,

and creamed corn and garlic mashed potatoes (not shown – I couldn’t get a picture before Al had descimated the mashed potatoes).

As if that wasn’t enough, we also had a choice of two desserts.  We picked chocolate mousse cake

and apple crostini with vanilla bean ice cream.

Thank goodness one of Maggiano’s trade marks is the doggie bag they send home with you, so I didn’t have to feel bad that we didn’t eat more – as if we could have.

We brought home most of the pasta – enough for a lunch and a dinner next week, and almost all of the ham, and creamed corn, and about half of each of the salads. We also brought the chololate cake home, untouched.  We’ll eat well on Maggiano’s next week!
