Pizza Night

Today has been such a fun day but I am so sad it’s already almost 10pm and tomorrow is Monday aka back to work! I am sooooo sore from my back-to-back workouts yesterday and don’t worry, I definitely take the whole day off and ate enough to make up for all the calories burned yesterday. 😛

My boyfriend had off too, so Wil and I did a little shopping and got some new plants for the balcony which was fun. Grocery shopping, Target, Crate and Barrel outlet (!!!) and a few others. We went to lunch at a Thai restaurant but I forgot my camera so couldn’t take any pics! I had a shrimp appetizer that was 3 shrimp each wrapped in a wonton wrapper and fried, which was served with sweet and sour sauce. It was SO good, perfect mix of crunchy from the wrapper, sweet from the sauce, and soft from the shrimp. For my main course I had the spicy eggplant dish which was awesome. It had tofu, eggplant, red and green peppers, onions, and a few other veggies. It was in a light garlicky brown sauce with basil and was so flavorful and delish. I had some leftovers but I don’t know what happened to them. I may have left them at the restaurant. Sad!

Then dinner was awesome. We ended up making pizzas at home, and my boyfriend whipped up the dough from scratch.

We spread out the crusts and had more cheese than necessary.

Mozzarella, Basil, Provolone, Romano, Parmesan, Ricotta, and Crushed Organic Tomatoes. Here is the 5 cheese pizza with torn basil ready to go in the oven.

And all done baking:

We had a salad with arugula, radishes, turnips, and a citrus vinaigrette, which was delicious, but the pizza was definitely the star!

We ate out on the balcony because the weather was perfect for it, and I had a hefeweizen with a slice of orange alongside my pizza and salad.

The pizza was incredible. I can’t even remember the last time we made pizza at home and its so much fun to pick your toppings and have it exactly how you want. So, so good and perfect for tonight.

Hope you had a fabulous weekend. What was the highlight?
