Every now and then, something comes along to totally change your perspective on life.
I recently had such an experience that not only surprised me but, if you know me at all, will surprise you too!!
My niece’s favorite restaurant is a place called Johnny Carino’s. This has been her favorite since she was a little fella, about 3 years old. People would ask where her favorite place to eat is and, expecting a kid to say McDonald’s, would be totally shocked when she quickly answered “Johnny Carino’s”!! I mean, she wouldn’t even HESITATE!!! That girl knows what she likes!
So of course when we moved to Frankfort, the Mr. and I had to try it out. And NO surprise, we loved it too!!! And it didn’t take me long to get in an ordering rut either!!!
At Valentine’s, the Mr. and I had a very romantic early-bird supper at Carino’s around 4:30 in the afternoon. We’re so old!!! 🙂 I was hankerin’ for a good steak and the only one on Carino’s menu is the Italian Flat Iron Steak.
Let me tell you…………that meal changed the way I eat…………at least at Carino’s!!!
It’s a wonderful steak COVERED with mushrooms and a delicious gorgonzola sauce. Served with it are superb roasted potatoes (yes, I said superb!) and the most fantastic green beans you’ll ever put in your mouth!!!
We went there last Sunday night and guess what I ordered???? Yep!
Here’s a pic:
Notice the small gap on the bean side of the plate. I had already started scarfing down the beans before I thought to take a picture!!! Man, are they good beans!!!
Andd therein lies the change.
I’m faced with a plate of steak smothered in cheese-y goodness along with my all-favorite food (potatoes) and what do I start with???? Beans???? Are you kidding me??????
Yes, they are THAT good!!!
So the next time you find yourself in Carino’s, be SURE to order a side of green beans!
You’ll love ‘em!!
