Dinner Out!

The entire team went to a fantastic Italian restaurant for dinner this evening. It's always nice to get out of the hotel, especially when going down to the Marina in Vilamoura and eating right on the water as huge million-dollar yachts bob up and down in their berths. By the time the team got through a slew of appetizers, including seafood cocktails, scrumptious chicken caesar salads with apples, garlic fried prawns, margarita and white mozzarella pizzas and some sort of bruschetta with melted cheese and ham, it's a wonder they could finish their main dishes...which, of course, they did. If there is one thing you can count on from the WNT players, besides winning lots of soccer games, is they can polish off some good food. We did see a lot of steak on the table as athletes need their protein. The desserts were equally as fantastic, including the one above, although we won't identify it's owner for fear of accusing someone of overindulgence (it was GK coach Phil Wheddon). And kudos to the wait staff at the restaurant, a group of strapping guys who ran the food in, filled water glasses, cleared tables, and brought dessert menus like is was some sort of Olympic event. Culinary gold medal for sure.
