Sorry weathermen, you got it wrong!!
The whole afternoon was nice and sunny! I ended up meeting Faith halfway to her house and we walked for a good hour. Then we came back to the couch for more SYTYCD!
At 6, we invited two new friends over for dinner. Jessica and Alex are from Pennsylvania and were here visiting for the weekend and they invited us on hike today. Our hike got rained out, so we decided to do drinks + pizza at our place instead.
Matt loves any chance he can get to share beer with new friends
We walked to Fry’s Spring Pizza for 2 pies at 6 to have along with a big salad made from greens from our garden
Baby chard, collards and mustard greens dressed in olive oil and vinegar plus salt and almonds
Our pizzas were excellent – one Jalapeno Pepperoni and one Wild Mushroom
I don’t normally do unknown meats in restaurants, but tonight I rolled with it. The peps looked good, and we all can’t be perfect all the time.
Garlic Cheddar also made an appearance. I had a slice of each pizza and a slice of CG
Matt poured some Double IPA to start
And we tasted Sheila’s gift – the Stone Smoked Porter for round II. YUM!!
For dessert I pulled out these AMAZING brittles I’ve been tasting for an OpenSky debut. They are so delicious – like toffee meets honeycomb – and the different nut combos are wonderful. Tonight we had pistachio and almond!
We had so much fun tonight. I wish every night could be a party!
Matt’s headed to bed soon, and well, I am too. Tomorrow starts a hearty week II!
