Sunday Lunch at Olive Garden


Our original plan was to go to Woodbury Outlet in Harriman, NY. We live around 30-40 minutes from there. It was 11:30 am when we left the house and we are all starving. I spent the morning eliminating what clothes will go to the drop box for donation and what to keep while hubby went to play tennis. We had four huge garbage bags full of clothes and shoes, mostly my daughter’s. We dropped this off before we proceed with our trip. My husband was craving for chicken parm so we went to Olive Garden in Mahwah, NJ. It is not out of the way to the outlet store. At this time, the weather was already in the 90’s. After we got full, laziness struck us, we felt like we don’t want to be walking on this very hot weather so we all decided to go home instead, just be in an air conditioned environment the whole afternoon.

When we got home, I did not realize I have a missed call and a message at the machine. It was from Isabella’s classmate (mom) whom we promised to have a play date at the park. Her daughter is so eager to play with my daughter. I called her, and she said can we meet at the park in 30 minutes? “we’ll just let the kids play for a little while because it’s HOT! I said yes because I don't know how to decline the invitation. Her little girl already cried last Friday because my daughter cannot make it since I have to go back to work.

Do you think kids will surrender to a hot weather when they are at the park! Nope, we were there for almost 2 hours!!! Thank goodness, we ran out of water and that’s the only time the kids agreed to go home. My daughter was red and sweating! We’re home 5pm. She was in bed by 6pm, woke up 7am this morning!

Back to OG, this is one of my favorite restaurants. I love their pastas and the calamari too. Some pictures i took during lunch.

The garden salad and bread are the best. We had seconds of the salad. I love it.

Hubby’s chicken parmigiana – fried breaded chicken breast topped with marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese with pasta on the side.

I had chicken alfredo pizza – We never miss this every time we go to OG. It is delicious, even on the next day. I shared this with the daughter. Actually with the garden salad alone you get full so we always end up with a doggie bag.
