As soon as 5:30 hit, I rushed home to take a post-power outage shower. Oh my goodness, it felt so good to shower that I stayed under the water until the hot water ran out. After getting fresh and clean, Todd and I headed out to Marinades in Rockford for some wood-fired pizza.
Before I go any further, I think it’s only fair to share with you my deep love for pizza. I could eat pizza any day of the week. There have even been weeks when I have eaten pizza every day of the week. I love pizza in any form – thin crust, thick crust, wood-fired, pizza sandwiches… Mmmm! Cheesy, saucy, doughy goodness, who could ask for anything more?
Thank you for bearing with me there, now back to the post!
We ordered cheesy bread to start (basically deconstructed pizza, yum!) and then we each order our own pizzas.
Todd and I can’t really order a pizza together, we can go halfsies on a pie – 1/2 pineapple (mine) and 1/2 mushroom and pepperoni (his) – but we can never just agree on one complete pizza. Of course, this stems from my pickiness. I’ll spring for the occasional BBQ chicken pizza or pizza margherita and the pizza place at work makes the best Boursin cheese and chicken pizza but my favorites are and will always be simple, pineapple or just plain cheese. Tonight I was feeling bold and went for half pineapple and half pineapple and bacon.
That pizza was absolutely what I was craving, so tasty. Pizza was the perfect, comforting way to end this cold, blustery day.
We got home and I quick finished writing the last of my thank you notes for our shower gifts and then Todd and I got to work on our marriage mentoring homework for the week. This week’s theme is “My Story” talking about our families and where we came from. Of course this isn’t something that was new for either of us, we both know each other’s families pretty well but our exercises are giving us a chance to look at and talk about these topics in new ways, it’s pretty cool.
Time to do a little work on the wedding and watch Top Chef, what a nice little Wednesday. See you tomorrow!
What are your go-to pizza toppings?
