Hello all! How is everyone today? I can’t wait to share my eats the last couple of days with you. I have been really bad at taking consistent pictures of an entire day of eats, so this WIAW (thanks again to Jenn for hosting!) is going to be s buffet of what I have been enjoying lately. I really want to focus this post around dinner last night as it was amazingly good! So here we go…
Has typically been of the overnight oat verity, which you can find on my recipe page, and coffee. These oats had coco powder in the mix topped with some frozen strawberries and fresh banana. The berries are so far out of season here that the ones we do get taste like water so I am know opting for the frozen berries.
On the snacking front I have devouring fresh fruit. Apples, bananas, Christmas Oranges… you name it and I’ve been loving it.
Lunch this week has been left over vegetable and bean soup I made on the weekend. I usually pair this with a nice thick slice of bread or rice noodles to make it a little more hearty.
Okay I wanted to rush through those meals to get to last nights dinner at UNA Pizza and Wine where we went for John’s birthday dinner.
Was AMAZING as it always is there. UNA doesn’t take reservations and is really popular so we were planning on heading to Ox and Angela (UNA’s sister restaurant) for a drink as we assumed there would be over a half an hour wait. As it turned out they could seat us in 10 minutes at the bar, for tables for 3 or more you were looking at a 40 min to get a table. This was our first time sitting at the bar and it was great and so much fun to watch them cook as they have a half open kitchen concept.
John and I decided we needed something to start to we opted to go for the muscles, a glass of red for me, and a beer for John.
The muscles were fabulous and so fresh! The broth they were cooked in was so tasty. I think it had some coconut milk in it along with corn, tomatoes, fennel, and topped with a little toasted bread. John finished the broth like a soup at the end.
For our mains we decided to go for a pizza each (you only live once!)John had the pizza on the top. It was loaded with cremini mushrooms, arugula, and Asiago cheese. He also decided to add some prosciutto to his creation which in my opinion and the barman’s was a great choice!
I had the pizza on the bottom called the Tiki
It was topped with shaved pineapple, prosciutto, and a jalapeno oil. I have had this pizza twice now and have loved it every time!
John completely finished his pizza and I polished off 3/4 of mine and boxed up the rest to enjoy today! We were both so stuffed that we couldn’t even look at a dessert menu but they ones they were serving to other tables looked delectable… next time!
We had a great night and will be back again and again and again
