Dinner with the Prevention RD

Nicole from Prevention RD was in town for a conference, and last night we got to meet up for dinner. It was so nice to meet Nicole in person! I enjoyed hearing about the conference she had attended and her job. We also talked about blogging. :-) Unfortunately, the toddler is getting worse again, so Nicole had to listen to his medical history for quite a bit of the evening… Sorry, Nicole. I hope to be more fun in October when you’ll be in town again! :-)

Here are some highlights of our evening:

Questions: When was the last time you went out for dinner with a friend? What did you order? Make us drool… :-)

Be well,

    Looks great- blog meet-ups are so much fun. Is that carrot cake?!

    Last time I ate dinner with a friend was in New York last October (yikes- I need to make more plans!) We went to a diner, and I had a chicken, feta, salad and tzatziki wrap :)

  2. I had so much fun! Thanks again, Andrea! :)

  3. Meet-ups are always so much fun! That carrot cake looks so good!

    I had dinner w/ my BF last weekend at Pluto's. First time there. I had a chicken salad and grilled asparagus. It was pretty good!

  4. I just read about this on Nicole's site! What a fun night. It's been a long time since I had dinner with a friend - too long! Too bad I can't have a virtual dinner with my best friend in Atlanta.

  5. Yay, I'm so glad that you and Nicole were able to meet! It sounds like the conference was a great success :)

    The last time I went out to eat with friends, I went with my clinical group out to eat at Olive Garden in the middle of the afternoon. We ate pastas with roasted peppers and olives and chicken and ... mmm, it was delicious! :)

  6. Looks like a great time!

    Love the blogger meet up! So fun!
    My friend and I went to this small bar not to long ago. I was thinking they would have your typical bar food. I was impressed. They had the most delicious cheese plate. We enjoyed it with a glass of wine. Perfect combo!

  8. blogger meetups are the BEST part of blogging for me, at least! how fun for the two of you!!!!!

    i havent been out to dinner in more yrs than i will admit. food allergies, small child, $$$ factor, and well, i cook at home. but, i do love a lattee or double espresso coffee drink when out :)

    love that dessert pic...mmmm, good!!!!!

    I went out to sushi last night and had the most amazing veggie rolls!!

  10. I love blogger meet-ups and seeing people take pictures of their food! It looks like you guys had a lot of fun!

  11. How lovely! I'd love to find out where you guys went for dinner...that dessert looks delicious! Great photo of you both. I've only checked out Nicole's blog a few times so I'll have to take another look. I always love blogs by RD's. It must have been nice to have a night out! You certainly deserve it!

  12. Glad you guys had fun together and got to meet in person. The last time I went to dinner with friends (other than my hubby) was when I was at home. I had pizza with falafel on it. One of my faves.

  13. I am so sad that I have never met a blogger :( But, I am so excited for the two of you for having the opportunity to meet!! It looks and sounds like you had a great time. I drool over any carrot cake, and that carrot cake looks like perfection. I think Nick and I will have carrot cake wedding cake :) Is that possible?!

    Have a nice day Andrea! I hope the toddler's issues are subsiding a bit :(

  14. We eat out far too much! Last week we went out and it isn't really 'foodie' worthy, but I had fish&chips. Greasy, tasty, fried and just what I needed!

  15. I went out to eat with 4 girls last night (other bridesmaids in a friends wedding in August) - it was fun! I ordered chicken fajitas... took a bunch home. But they ordered cheese dip... had too much of it!

  16. Oh my goodness. The food looks divine!

    The last time the girls did dinner we order Indian and had a feast!

    Great to have such a nice dinner with a blogger friend! I hope your little one is going to be doing better soon.

  18. I'm sure you had lots of fun with your blogger pal! The food looks wonderful too. Have a nice day!
    Regards, Kristy

  19. Last time I sat in a restaurant with friends, I ate schmoo torte with caramel sauce. So not diet friendly but the moment was sweeter than the cake so it was all worth it.

    Thank you for your most recent comment on my blog. You said:
    "I didn't value myself enough to take the time to properly nourish and move my body every day"

    Lately I've been doing some soul searching along those lines. I'm having a hard time coming to terms with what I have recently finally admitted to myself: I'm not very nice to myself. And I don't know why. But until I can do that, I don't think I'll ever work hard enough to reach my goals. Complicated.

    It means a lot to me that you read my blog and comment. Thanks Andrea.

  20. *Drool* That looks so yummy!

    It's been ages since I went out with a friend. I honestly can't remember the last time. Unless you count Subway. (I don't... my best friend owns a Subway Franchise, and the only time we get together is when I stop by while he's working...)

  21. That meal look delicious!

    I've met a few bloggers the last few months and I've really been enjoying the new friendships!

  22. how fun :)

    Last dinner out was with my husband, but it was fabulous! All locally made food and insane desserts - a dark chocolate and caramel torte and candied almond semifreddo. Yum.

  23. Last time with a friend was April 3rd. Food of that dinner is on my blog around that day.

    I love going out for dinner with the hub or friends.

    Looks like you've had a great evening.

  24. Last time I went out with a friend was last night for some frozen yogurt...chocolate/pb frozen yogurt with every kind of fruit they had! YUM!

  25. So fun!!

    I always love photos of food bloggers in action!!

    The best thing I had recently with a friend was black bean hummus- warm black beans topped with an amazingly garlicky hummus- topped with good!

    Have a great week, Andrea!

  26. The salad and beans look yummy. Great photo, was the color photoshopped?

  27. @cheapdoubleglazing: Thanks. No. They color wasn't photoshopped. The dishes looked amazing, and the photos did them justice.
