After quite the busy day at work today I had a lil’ something up my sleeve planned for dinner tonight…
A trek down to my “ol’ stopmin’ grounds” (does anyone else’s Dad use that phrase wayyyy too often haha? 😉 ) for a delicious & fun blogger dinner meetup!

The restaurant setting was perfect, a casual “grab-your-0wn-menu” and order kind of place, which more often than not usually results in pretty fanatastic fare I’d have to say…
Olio was no exception!
I decided on the sandwich & half salad: El Conquistador + House Salad
The wrap included locally raised pork, fig jam, hot & red peppers, aged cheddar AND guacamole.
Ingredients I would have never paired together. But ingredients that combined into a symphony of pure delight. This wrap was amazing, I think the fig jam really kicked it up a notch 🙂
The accompanying house salad included the most delicious roasted zucchini & red peppers.
And lucky for us, a lil’ tweetybird got wind of our group of bloggers and treated us to this sweet treat delight!
Let’s just say the plate was cleaned 😀
I also picked up some extra cannolis to take home to The Man. Let’s just say that they were devoured within 5 minutes of my arrival home tonight haha.
He adored them, saying “now this is some good cannoli” the entire time (I think it was the light cinnamon flavor & perfect cream filling?!)
Coming from a seasoned Italian cannoli eater, I’d say that’s a good sign 😉
It was definitely a great night to meet up with some new friends and share our stories 😀
It was also a fabulous meal, Olio is definitely a restaurant that I’ll be visiting again.
