Pizza &…..a Movie?

January 31, 2009

Pizza  – yay!!

Movie? Nay!

I had a glass of Trader Joe’s Velvet Moon upon arrival – one of my new favorites!

Kate put out some yummy appetizers – including Kashi crackers (caaaashi crackers said in midwestern accent!) I had about half a serving of these – after dinner when I got the munchies!

I swear I got a photo of the salad I brought, but it’s not here. So here’s one of Diana’s Caesar salad, which was a big hit!

I had a ton of salad –

And one slice of veggie pizza, which took me forever to eat.

I also did a taste test between the husband’s newest beer and Justin’s – both hefeweizens. (I just had sips of both)

And then came Michelle’s Amazing Banana Pudding!!

I started with a normal portion

Which turned into crazy seconds…and seconds and a halves….

We made the call at 7:30 to forget the movie and just continue hanging out since we were having such a good time. Good call!

And more wine! It was a sip-by-sip kinda night

I can’t lie- I had a slice of Cadbury chocolate upon arriving home. I think I’m just in an eating kinda mood. Bedtime it is!

HA! Just remembered I had about 3 Trader Joe’s Meringues! FYI : )

You’re fast! I was just about to get started on my post. Lovely recap here…especially the ambiance shot! :)

Oh all that pizza looks so delicious!

The banana pudding looks really yummy too…I’ve never seen a dessert quite like that before.



4 Sara January 31, 2009 at 11:34 pm

Sounds like a great night! The pizza and banana pudding look fabulous!

PS- You may have won a lil something on my website! 😉

OOh!! So amazing – I’m pretty sure that’s Paula Deen’s “Nacho Mama’s Banana Pudding” – it’s the only one I’ve ever seen using the Chessmen cookies instead of Nilla Wafers. It’s absolutely heavenly!!! All full of cream cheese and whipped cream goodness. Hard not to eat seconds of that!

What a great night you had! You can’t ever talk at the movies – good call to stay where you were!


8 Sharon January 31, 2009 at 11:54 pm

What a fun time!

Glad you had such a great time!


10 Rachel February 1, 2009 at 12:03 am

Sounds like an absolutely fantastic evening! Maybe I’m starved for social time or something, because now I’ve got my imagination running away about throwing some pizza, salad, wine, and banana pudding parties for my friends… ha! Inspiration as usual, thanks for sharing :)

13 Sarah (lovINmytummy) February 1, 2009 at 12:58 am

Mmmm….pudding with cookies on top!


14 Michelle in CA February 1, 2009 at 12:59 am

That pudding looks DIVINE! I have never seen it made with cookies on top (I know, maybe my head’s been in a hole lol). Gonna have to try something like that. Also loved your crumbled muffin over the oatmeal in your previous post. So many great ideas! Thank you, thank you :-)


15 Katherine February 1, 2009 at 1:13 am

I love having chocolate before bed! And you can’t have red wine without it!


16 Juliet February 1, 2009 at 2:15 am

20 Marisa (trim the fat) February 1, 2009 at 8:40 am

Great night! Pizza looks so yummy – good for you for sticking with only 1 slice!

My Trader Joe’s is expanding; hope they start carrying the wines soon!


21 caitlin (see bride run) February 1, 2009 at 8:54 am

That pizza does look amazing! Not to mention the pudding… YUM!


24 Kath February 1, 2009 at 9:14 am

brandi ,
I like Justin’s more – Matt’s was too banana-y!



25 Meg February 1, 2009 at 9:19 am

Love the cookies on top of the pudding!


26 seelee live (for the love of peanut butter) February 1, 2009 at 9:28 am

how does one make banana pudding?


27 February 1, 2009 at 10:10 am

It looks great and delicious pizza to eat. The additional add on top of the pizza is awesome. I wonder if I can get the pizza here in my place..or perhaps learning to bake one my own?! Lol.


28 theoddbod February 1, 2009 at 10:29 am

nice. who needs a movie. nothing good out anyways 😉


29 Diana February 1, 2009 at 3:35 pm

That pudding looks fantastic! I’m a little late commenting so I’m gonna hop over to the recipe now!
Pizza looks good too!!

I’m curious about the Velvet Moon Cab, was it? We shop at TJ’s every week, love that place! How much was it? What are some of its characteristics? Is it a real robust cab more for meat and richness, or it is more like velvet as the name implies?? Thanks, I love finding different nuances in wine and how it pairs with food.



31 Kath February 1, 2009 at 7:49 pm

Mytastytravels ,
I don’t know how much it cost, but it’s a very, very smooth cab, medium bodied. It really does taste like velvet. Thick and supple. Not too many tannins. Love it!
