Yesterday afternoon I met up with my friend, Jess, for a lunch date at Caffe Far Bella. It’s the cutest and coziest little hideaway cafe in St Clair Shores. Their menu was endless and they had all kinds of seasonal desserts and espresso drinks.

They have been voted number one for their soups in Detroit and I can vouch for them! I ordered the vegetable bean chili and Jess had the chicken noodle; both very good!

After our lunch we opened up our Christmas gifts to each other. Is anyone else obsessed with her hair color? I know I am…

I ordered the large portion of a Caesar salad. I don’t know what they do to get their lettuce so fresh, but I couldn’t get enough. It sounds silly, but I’ve never tasted lettuce so fresh. I also had an eggnog flavored tea packet. It actually tasted like a cinnamon roll! So good! I’m on the hunt to find them.

Oh and I need this cup. It fit’s me perfectly.

Later in the night my dad (visiting), and I went out to dinner at my favorite place, Terry’s Terrace in Harrison Township. My meal came with a starter salad and ranch on the side.  Oh! You better believe those cherry tomatoes were flicked onto my dad’s plate. Gross!

Yesterday was a winning day for me. I won $60 on my mega millions ticket and then $58 playing Keno at the restaurant. So the dinner night was on me! Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! I think my gambling career has a future 😉

I ordered the Napa Valley chicken and shrimp over redskin potatoes. The chicken was crusted in Parmesan cheese and marinated in a white wine lemon sauce. The chicken was topped with cooked roma tomatoes, which I like so no flicken’ onto other peoples plates!
