Local Pie

The weekend is officially here!

And by tomorrow morning, we’ll be probably be celebrating by playing in the snow ;) The storm hasn’t hit us yet, but it should start snowing here later tonight.

I’m kind of happy the snow didn’t start this afternoon – it gave me time to get some stuff done tonight.

Before we left work, I called and ordered a pizza for dinner from this awesome local place, Mikie’s 7th. The owners of the restaurant also have a farm here, and everything in the restaurant is local + organic. I’ve bought meat from them before in their store and at the farmer’s market, but we’ve never ordered dinner before tonight.


I got “The Works” for us tonight – it had pepperoni, onions, green peppers, sausage, and mushrooms.



This was our first time ordering pizza here, and I loved it! The crust was perfect – a little chewy and not too greasy or oily.

We picked up the pizza on our way home tonight, so all I had to do once we got home was throw together some salads to go along with the pie.


I had a salad of romaine, carrots, scallions and a little ranch dressing.


Plus 2 slices of cheesy pizza.



Right after I finished eating, I drove up to the grocery store to get essentials + the other food we needed.

I knew it might be crowded since the storm is supposed to hit tonight, but it actually wasn’t as bad as I thought it might be. The lines were a little long, but it wasn’t much worse than normal.

I got everything off my grocery list for the week, so we’re set if we do get snowed in!

Nick’s got a movie in right now and I’m hoping to convince him to stop it at 9 so I can watch What Not to Wear :)

I’m ready for pajamas, puppy play time, and maybe a few supercharge me cookies.


Happy Friday!
