Huzzah for 'Zza

Remember that scene in "Down and Out in Beverly Hills" when Richard Dreyfuss goes slumming with the bum played by Nick Nolte? He comes back and announces, "I ate garbage! And it was good!" (Or something close to that.)
Well, after last evening's camera class, we decided to suspend the local diet for a day and eat something taboo.
But it sure wasn't garbage. We had lovely little individual pizzas at Amici's in San Rafael. I like pizzas without tomato sauce, so I ordered the Trentino: mozzarella, Parmesan, crumbled feta, baby spinach, pancetta, red onions, herbs, and lemon-infused olive oil. Probably not a single local item on the whole pie.
And I applied one of the lessons from camera school: Try pressing different buttons and see what they do for you. Not sure I was successful, but I was empowered.
So yeah, I cheated. And it was good!
Back on track today, though, I promise.

i am a little bit addicted to Amicis mini boston, erhmmmm, notice I haven't mentioned them any time on my blog this month? That doesn't meant to say I haven't eaten them. Trentino is one of my faves too.

Eggplant pizza! OK, that's next... Uh, in September, right? ;-)

I'm a fan of Amici's. I'm not sure why it's "Boston" pizza. I'm from Boston and can't figure it out!

Yeah -- you think Regina's ever served an eggplant pizza? Oh wait, they do (checked their website). That still doesn't explain it.

It's a good thing I'm already planning to make pizza tonight. Otherwise I'd have to change the menu after looking at that photo. Looks and sounds absolutely delish!
