$100 Olive Garden GC Giveaway!

My very favorite restaurant as a kid was Olive Garden. Well, I'm 27 now and not much has changed. It's so cool to have a restaurant that really grows with your family. As a child, I was a super picky eater, and now I have a picky eater of my own. Olive Garden was the very first place where Brayden ate something off the menu-they didn't have to make him something special, and I didn't have to bring anything along with me. And the breadsticks? Well, they are his FAVORITE!
Olive Garden is such a family friendly restaurant. It's one of those places I don't have to worry about whether or not my two munchkins are being angels; there's always background music and the chatter of happy families to hide their squeals. The servers are always so friendly; I don't think I've ever had one negative experience there.

Anytime I'm there I have to order their bruschetta; it is the very best! Seriously, it is so good, it's almost addictive!

I was excited to have the opportunity to try out their new 3 Course Italian Dinner Special last week with my mom and the boys. You get your choice of soup or salad, an entree and dessert-and of course, their fabulous, unlimited breadsticks. There is a great variety on the menu for both the entrees and the desserts and the special goes until March 18th. You can check out the dinner specials here, the whole menu here and the kids menu here!

See that little hand? He was trying to swipe a breadstick before I could get the picture! Just like his mommy and big brother!
For the entree, I went with the Asiago and Roasted Garlic Tortelloni with Grilled Sausage:And my mom picked the Smoked Mozzarella Chicken:
The other entree options are Five Cheese Marinara Penne with Shrimp, Creamy Parmesan Portobello Fettuccine and Spaghetti with Four Cheese Meat Sauce. Don't they all sound good?!
Oh my word was that Tortelloni good! I ate half and took half home for later. They give you SO much food, it easily lasts me for two meals!

Plus, I had to save a little room. Why? THIS is why:
Now, we all know how I feel about chocolate. I'm a chocolate snob. A chocoholic. Whatever you want to call it, chocolate is my thing. This chocolate mousse did NOT disappoint! With it's decadent cookie crust and soft, melt in your mouth chocolate mousse topped with chocolate shavings, it was the perfect ending to a delicious lunch! My mom had the Tiramisu, and she loved it as well! The other dessert options include: Limoncello Mousse, Strawberry Cream Cake and Dark Chocolate Cake.

Is your mouth watering yet? Gosh, mine is just thinking about that meal. I can't wait to go back! Which makes me doubly excited to offer you a chance to win a $100 Olive Garden Gift Card, courtesy of BlogHer and Olive Garden!
