Dinner

As a New Englander, Cape Cod is my usual ‘away-for-the-weekend’ location. It’s easy to get to and oh so stereotypical. So when the chance arose to take a trip elsewhere, I faltered, for all of thirty seconds, before I realized that I had to grab the opportunity before it slipped between my fingers like the fine, whispy sand that coats the shoreline of this destination.

I’m goin’ to Florida, baby!

And while I absolutely cannot wait for must-sees like Caladesi Island and the Salvador Dali museum, I’m really on the edge of my chair whenever I think about the food. They say the best way to a guy’s heart is through his stomach…well, the best way to a foodie’s heart is through her stomach as well (and I can assure you, I am most definitely not a male).

Thinking about dockside restaurants, fresh fish, and unique local concoctions gets my pulse a-racing. And with Tarpon Springs on the schedule, Floridian Greek food is most definitely on the menu – after spending 2 weeks in Greece, I’m sure nothing will compare…but it can’t hurt to try.

Needless to say, I am absolutely thrilled. I’ve been to Florida once in my life, in the 7th grade, when my parents took my sister and I to Disney World. Restaurant suggestions, anyone?

Mmm. Pizza

Mmm. Pizza

I’m a pizza gal. There’s no other way to put it. Cheesy, crunchy pizza rocks my world. I’m not, however, a fan of greasy Domino’s or Pizza Hut pizza. I do not like to feel my arteries clogging as I’m eating. Frozen pizza usually falls short; it’s either too soggy or too cardboard-y.

But, as a fan of Amy’s products in general, I decided to give Amy’s Roasted Vegetable Pizza a try. I was a bit apprehensive because of it’s lack of cheese and nearly added on my own mozzarella, but I am so glad that I didn’t. This pizza needs no add-ons or modification. I nearly died and went to heaven, it is *that* good, people. The box asserts that the Roasted Veggie Pizza tastes like the best foccacia you’ve ever had, and it does. By leaps and bounds. Not only does the crust crisp up deliciously (I’m pretty sure it’s the pre-cooked state of the pizza that aids this. Go Amy’s), but the toppings are just scrumptious and wonderfully not oily. Sweet carmelized onions? Yum. Roasted red peppers? Yes please. Marinated artichoke hearts? The bane of my existence.

I’ve fallen in love. It was nearly impossible not to. And, because Amy’s uses ingredients that any normal human being can pronounce, it’s far healthier than the average frozen pizza. Far more delicious too, of course.

I give Amy’s Roasted Vegetable Pizza 5 out of 5 stars. Cheese? What’s cheese?

Cafe au lait & Greek yogurt with honey and fresh blueberries…delectable. Breakfast is such an intimate meal.
