Yesterday afternoon I took dad, Matt, and Jeff to the driving range to hit some golf balls. It was a bit of a belated Father’s Day gift to dad, but we all got to enjoy it.
All together nowIt was fun! After we took dad to his favorite ice cream place- Dairy Queen! I haven’t been in a long time and wasn’t sure if I should get anything … but ended up with a mini blizzard with reeses peanut butter pieces and having a bit of Jeff’s small mint chocolate chip blizzard. They were pretty good, but I def prefer froyo from other places.
Later on we came home and lounged on the back porch, with some beverages of course.
Jeff and I were debating what to do for dinner .. and then we thought of HOMEMADE PIZZA! Jeff has quite a knack for creating delicious whole wheat crust and creative pizza topping combos, so we went for it! We were a bit lazier than usual and instead of whipping up the dough ourselves (we use a great recipe from Animal Vegetable Miracle
) we instead just bought the premade dough from Trader Joes, rolled it out, and went from there.
We made a big salad on the side, and then did one pizza with whole wheat crust and red peppers, orange peppers, onions, and half mushroom, all with fresh mozzarella blobs.
The other one we used a garlic herb crust, and topped it with loads of fresh pesto my mom had made the day before (sooo gooood), spinach, more fresh basil leaves, tomato slices, and of course mozzarella blobs. This one came out awesome! But a slight bit dry, we need to figure out what it was lacking? White pizzas are always tricky for me to figure out.
We sat outside on the porch and had a lovely dinner with mom. I love eating outside!!
The evening was wrapped up with a few beers at The Local, a bar down the street with our friends Jenny and Dan. It was nice catching up with them before Jenny heads off to China for a 3 week adventure! Another post about today coming up …
