pizza and other favorite things

Standard

Tyler and I had the best date last night in historic Inman Park at Fritti.  We wanted to try a new restaurant and were in the mood for some authentic pizza.  Fritti is known for its authentic Neopolitan Pizza served Italian style whole, not sliced.  I grew up on Giordano’s famous deep dish stuffed pizza.  I could eat two pieces which is crazy to me now! 

Inman Park is a really neat area and only 10 minutes from our apartment.  When we arrived, the restaurant was packed.  We did not have reservations because we didn’t make the decision to go to Fritti until 5:30, and we were busy watching KU win!  Rock Chalk Jayhawk!  Back to the restaurant…we ended up sitting at the bar where we enjoyed a great Tuscan wine from Banfi.   It brought us both back to Italy…*sigh*.   Luckily, we only had to wait 30 minutes.

We had looked at the menu at the bar, so we immediately ordered Bruschetta as an appetizer.  The mozzarella was fresh, the tomatoes had been roasted, and the basil was flavorful.  A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

You will not be surprised as to which pizza we each ordered.  Tyler ordered the Stracchinella pizza made with tomato, mozzarella, Stracchino cheese, and Italian sausage.  He was one happy camper!

Take a guess at what I ordered…yep, you guessed it!  The Vegetariana pizza served with tomato, spinach, peppers, sun-dried tomato, mushrooms, squash, and zucchini.  Very similar to what I make at home only I like to add chicken.

After our positively perfect evening out, we cuddled up on the couch to watch one of our favorites, The Devil Wears Prada.  It just never gets old.

Other Favorite Things

I wanted to share a few of my favorite things of the moment.  Enjoy!

I crave one of these after every yoga class!  They are hard on the budget, so I only have a few a week.
