The Penne Carbonara at YaYa’s is “To Die For”

If you know what happened to us this weekend, while celebrating our 9th wedding anniversary, then you’ll find this title completely amusing. I actually have to give our friend Jay credit for this one. He and Becca called us on Sunday morning, while they were having brunch at Friendly’s.

He was like, “You know that you didn’t have to act out to get attention. If you wanted us to come home, all you had to do was say the word.” I told him that we really enjoyed our dinner because the food and service were great. That’s when he made the “to die for” comment. LOL.

We started with their hummus and pita.

I indulged by having a Georgia peach. It was delicious!

Brian had a couple of bottles of Sam Adams Boston Lager. This is our server Ben, who was great, but couldn’t poor beer properly to save his life. LOL.

The bread was good, but it looks like chicken from far away.

Brian had the four cheese pizza, which he only ate half of… Our server Ben boxed up the rest, but Brian left it at the restaurant because of all the excitement that happened. It was the last thing on his mind.

The infamous penne carbonara, served European style with the egg yolk in the middle. It was so delicious, I ate almost all of it. My body totally freaked out. I experienced vasovagal response — had a seizure and passed out, not once, but twice. After the second time, I ended up on the floor of the patio at YaYa’s.

Brian didn’t finish his pizza, but I ate almost all of my food.

We had a tough decision about what to get for dessert. Everything looked yummy!

We settled on the creme brulee trio, which Brian thoroughly enjoyed. I think it was the combination of everything — hummus and pita, bread, penne, dessert, and two Georgia peaches — that did me in. I want a do over!
