The Philadelphia Car show runs from January 19th through the 27th! Definitely check it out if you get the chance! Here are some scenes from us exploring the show!

Look at that hill! Mike and I went for a ride in that!
One of the best parts of the Auto Show for me was taking the trip in the Jeep Experience! You were able to sit in a Jeep vehicle and they drove you through different obstacles that a Jeep can handle! It was super cool and I highly recommend trying it out if you are going to the car show!

We both had so much fun at the car show! I think this was one of the best car shows that I’ve attended. There was so much to see. It was crowded but not as crowded as I expected it to be. Thank you so much for allowing me to attend as a guest! I really had a wonderful time!
After enjoying ourselves at the show, I had the opportunity to try out Maggiano’s for dinner again. Since we didn’t enjoy our last experience, we were invited back. I was super excited to try it out again!
Our waitress was one of the friendliest people I have ever met! She had so much personality and really made our experience wonderful. She refilled our drinks as soon as they got low. She was very attentive and made us feel at home. We decided to try out their Marco’s Meal deal that they have going on right now. It’s a three course meal plus you each pick out an entree to bring home! So you get an appetizer, your meal, and dessert to share plus two other meals to bring home with you! We thought this was an incredible deal and we had to take advantage of it!
For our appetizer, we decided on Stuffed Mushrooms (Jumbo mushroom caps stuffed with spinach and topped with seasoned breadcrumbs, served in a garlic white wine sauce).
We loved these mushrooms! I am a huge fan of portobella mushrooms so I was in heaven. I love how spinach and garlic taste together and the breadcrumbs tied everything together. It was so good. I would definitely order this again!
For Mike’s meal, he ordered Fettuccine Alfredo and added chicken (Fettuccine tossed with garlic in an Asiago cream sauce).
For my meal, I ordered the Four-Cheese Ravioli (Ravioli stuffed with Ricotta cheese, cream cheese, mozzarella and Provolone. Served in a pesto-alfredo cream sauce with a touch of marinara).
Mike and I both loved our dinners! The sauce on my pasta was amazing! It was alfredo and pesto together. I thought it was so good! We both couldn’t finish our dinners so we brought them home. For the two other meals we decided to bring home, Mike brought home spaghetti with meatballs and I brought home Bowtie Aglio (Farfalle pasta with broccolini, fresh spinach, sun-dried tomatoes and grated parmesan). Needless to say, we have a ton of food to eat this week!
Our meal wasn’t over yet! We got to choose a dessert. We decided on Tiramisu!
As you can tell, we both hated it!
Clean Plate Club!
We both really enjoyed ourselves at Maggiano’s! It was such a better experience this time. They really took care of us at the restaurant and made sure everything was perfect! The waitress also mentioned to us that for Valentine’s Day, they typically do the Marco’s meal but add additional food items and even wine. So be sure to look for details on that at your local Maggiano’s. I wouldn’t mind doing that for Valentine’s Day! Thank you so much, Maggiano’s for your hospitality!
Have you ever been to a car show? What is your favorite kind of car? Have you ever been to Maggiano’s?
Have a great Monday!
