Last night I had the most fabulous meal with my sista at Pappadeaux in Atlanta. She's been keeping this place a secret from me! We get there around 8pm and find out that she knows the hostess from way back. (Our buzzer literally went off after about 5 minutes when there was over a 40 minute wait for a table. VIP!)

The first thing that we ordered was the most delicious dip I have EVER put in my mouth, hands down! Lump Crab & Spinach Dip with crispy garlic cheese bread...OMG. I could eat that by itself and call it a night.

I saw a woman with this drink and had to order one for myself. It's called a Swamp Thing made from a mix of raspberry and melon liqueurs blended with frozen Hurricane & Margarita. Fantastic! Brain freeze though.

I hate to admit that even though I'm a Florida girl, I've never had oysters before. She was shocked and insisted that we order some. Her favorites were the Oysters Baton Rouge - oysters on the half shell baked with a Parmesan Romano cheese sauce. We also tried the Oysters Pappadeaux with crabmeat, spinach and hollandaise. I loved them!

Next up was the Chicken Linguine Picayune (which we split and barely ate more than a few bites of) tossed with grilled chicken breast, mushrooms, spinach, broccoli, garlic and extra virgin olive oil. Good, but I would have been happy eating just the appetizers with a side of broccoli.

Since we worked SO hard all week AND completed a boot camp we decided to treat ourselves to their new Chocolate Ganache Cake. It was like heaven in my mouth! I don't think words can describe how fantastical this cake was.

After dinner we went to see Bridesmaids and had a few laughs. It was a fun night with my sista!
