Comfort Food for Thought

One weekend hubby and i felt like getting some comfort food before heading home

Piazza Pazzo

I love Piazza’s laid back atmosphere and good food

whenever we have a warm bread basket with balsamic vinegar and olive oil, i remember many years ago when my good friends and i thought the idea of dipping bread in oil was absurd…

…that was of course until i tasted it

That day at Piazza Hubby decided to be predictable and got some pasta

Blue Bacon

blue cheese and…well yes, bacon…

blue cheese is known for its sharp and salty flavor. many don’t like it because they’re grossed out by the fact that they can actually see (and smell) the molds that make cheese cheese. But for the adventurous who love European cheeses like us, blue cheese crumbled into salad or made into a creamy pasta like this dish is a walk in the park.

For those who are not too familiar with blue cheese and want to give it a try, this dish would be perfect as it is mild compared to the stronger flavor of the blue cheese pasta of lets say Barcino

That was definitely a decent dish of pasta.

I, also, wanted to be predictable that day and got one of my all time favorite comfort food…thin crust pizza

Boscaiola Pizza

cream and mushroom thin crust pizza

i found out that boscaiola comes from the italian word boscaiolo which means woodcutter, and apparently its named as so because woodcutters collect mushrooms, interesting huh?!

…talk about food for thought…
