Hope you’re enjoying and savoring the last bit of weekend we have left!
After boyfriend and I cleaned the apartment from top to bottom for a good 2 hours (I would eat off the bathroom floors they are so shiny, clean and sparkly right now) we got ready for a special guest coming over for dinner.
Boyfriend’s mom! 🙂
Boyfriend’s mom is so wonderful and I really enjoy spending time with her. We like to get together as often as we can, and always have a great time – tonight was no exception.
Boyfriend and his mom are huge sushi fans. I am… a fan of sushi, but mainly the “beginner” rolls – California, Dragon, Spider, Caterpillar, etc. There is one type of nigiri sushi I will eat and it’s sold at all of 2 restaurants here – Walu or butterfish.
There is an amazing Japanese fish market in Japantown that specializes in sashimi-grade fish that boyfriend goes to about once a week to pick up fresh sushi to slice and dice up.
usually 100% of the time opt out and make something a little more… cooked.
Tonight I decided on a homemade pizza, while still digging into the steamed edamame with boyfriend and his mom as they devoured their sushi.
I had picked up some ingredients and dough at Whole Foods today for the pizza and had big plans to make my own pesto, but since we under-estimated cleaning time by a good 2 hours, that’s going to have to wait until tomorrow!
On the pizza went:
- Mozzarella cheese
- Sun Dried Tomatoes
- 1/2 Chopped Every-Herb-You-Can-Find Chicken leftover from last night
- Fresh spinach
- Fresh thyme
