Amazing Pizza + Trader Joes trip

Hi!

So I wasn’t going to post again till Monday because I’m in Annapolis for Easter but I decided I would do a quick post from my phone to fill you in on all the excitement from yesterday

Yesterday at afternoon we made a trip to the best place on earth

Aka TRADER JOES!!!

I told my mom instead of an Easter basket this year because after all I am getting a little too old for the Easter bunny..

I’d get a bunch of trader joes goodies courtesy of my mommy instead! I got lots of goodies but here are some of the highlights

I got
-cocoa almond butter (i can’t wait to try this!!
-curry simmer sauce
-pb filled pretzels
-almond flax seed butter
-pumpkin butter
-organic tricolor quinoa
-harvest cous cous blend
-dark chocolate pb cups..because there is no Easter without some delicious candy:)

For dinner last night we went to an amazing local restaurant called the Vin wine cafe

The place opens at 5:30 and when we got there, there was already a line forming out the door to get in!

Ps this is totally the kind of restaurant I would love to own some day!

When you walk in there is a huge wine bar in the front

So cool!

And they also had a separate bar that you can eat at and get a view of the chefs cooking!

I love restaurants with an open kitchen because then you know they keep everything extremely neat and clean!

We ate on the outdoor patio that was screened in

The menu was simple but full of eclectic options

I love how at the bottom of each item they shared a fun little caption about the food

We got a lot of different items for the whole table to share

The tuna tar tar had sliced almonds in it and was topped with a thin slice of blood orange..holy cow..one of the best tuna tar tars I’ve ever had

The other item was a house made warm mozzarella..Homemade mozzarella has so much more flavor!

We also got an order of the blue crab rolls and clams which were equally as good

The main event were the 2 pizzas we ordered

This pizza was called “The Ranchero” which had roasted pork belly, sweet onions, pickled Serrano peppers, barbecue sauce, mozzarella, and provolone

I seriously haven’t had pizza this good is such a long time. The crust was so thin and so crispy! Just how I like it!

I was in a serious food coma after dinner last night but it was so worth it!

Alrighty time to go decorate some Easter eggs!
