142.6…An Italian Obsession
It’s no secret. My husband and I LOVE Italian food. If I had to pick a favorite cuisine, it would be Italian (with Mexican and Indian as runners up).
I had some coupons for Michael Angelo’s frozen meals that I got from BlogHer. I redeemed one of them for a package of their meat lasagna.
I’m usually not very fond of frozen meals. I prefer making things myself and freezing portions for later. You all know I love to freeze stuff! This being said, I was pleasantly surprised with this product! The instructions recommended using their microwavable method but I went with the oven method. Maybe I should have followed their advice because it took a lot longer in the oven than the directions stated. Even then, it was still cold in the middle.
I was feeling pretty bummed but just microwaved each serving and rolled with it. The verdict: it tasted pretty darn good!!! I really enjoyed it!
I made a big salad to go with it and it was a great dinner! I have a few coupons left so I can’t wait to try other varieties!
I couldn’t stay away from the rest of the bagels sitting on my counter much longer so I incorporated half of one into my breakfast. I spread Teddie peanut butter on it and enjoyed every bite! I added cantaloupe to it but it tasted funny so I ended up replacing it with pineapple.
I took the kids to school and then went to Zumba. We have a new instructor on Wednesdays. This was her second time teaching the class. The first class a couple of weeks ago was great! Today’s class, however, well…..sucked. I never broke a sweat and people were leaving from the class left and right. I felt bad so I stayed. Boo!
After class I met my husband and we went to buy holiday lights for our house. We usually rent them but decided it would be cheaper in the long run to buy them. My husband’s friend’s family owns the store we went to so we asked him where to go for lunch. He recommended a little Italian restaurant called Sardina’s.
It wasn’t a restaurant that would catch my eye so I never would have gone their without his recommendation. I’m so glad I did! The Italian obsession continues!
Everything was excellent. It was super casual….just sit wherever you want. The prices were extremely reasonable. Score! We split a Caesar salad to start. It came with a basket of garlic bread. I managed to only eat one piece.
We also split a pizza with onions and bell peppers.
It was awesome! Great sauce, perfect amount of cheese and the crust was perfectly crispy! I’m so glad we discovered Sardina’s. It’s not super close to our house but I imagine we will be making their drive in the near future.
I made a quick trip to Target, picked the kids up from school and came home to get the laundry started. I need to start packing…..I’m going to the Foodbuzz Festival this weekend in San Francisco! I’m so excited!
