We couldn't believe how heavy the pizza was. We got it home and had a peek. It was still piping hot.
The sourdough crust was incredible. The sauce - the best we've ever had. It was so flavourful, and super saucy, which I love. Christopher doesn't normally like super saucy pizzas, but he said that was because none of the other pizzas had a sauce like this! He said numerous times as we slowly ate, and savoured, how much he loved the sauce. You could tell all the ingredients were very fresh, and carefully chosen. It was evident that a lot of care went into this creation.
It was filling enough for us to have it for dinner and then lunch the next day (well, part of Christopher's lunch).
Xenofon is a master. A pizza master. And from what I can tell on Instagram, he's a master of all types of cuisine.
We might have to try and make him our new best friend.
2) The kind people at GoMacro sent me some macro bars free of charge to test out, and we were impressed. I loved the ingredient list - all of them very recognizable.
They sent the following flavours: sesame butter & dates, granola & coconut, apples & walnuts, peanut butter & chocolate chip, and sunflower butter & chocolate. They are certified organic, vegan, non GMO, gluten free and macrobiotic. These bars definitely hit the spot when we need something to hold us over for a couple of hours. We'd buy them for sure!
3) On Sunday morning Christopher made lovely breakfast skillets.
I'm thinking he might have to make these again this coming weekend! There's nothing like a hearty, flavourful, leisurely breakfast on the weekends over coffee and visits.
4) On Sunday evening I whipped up a batch of sausage, kale soup for our lunches, while Christopher prepared dinner. This has become our Sunday evening routine, and we're always happy when we have yummy, warm lunches to look forward to on Monday and Tuesday.
5) On Monday evening we roasted a big pan of veggies, and made a warm chicken salad.
We topped a bit of raw greens with the roasted veggies and some sliced chicken. We then drizzled a simple dressing over that (sesame seed balsamic vinegar, with olive oil, salt and pepper).
5) We have loved the comedian Bo Burnham for a while now. When my sister told us that he was coming to town, we were beyond excited! Last night we went out for dinner with my sister and her boyfriend to Famoso.
I was a bit disappointed as it wasn't as good as what we had had in Edmonton and Saskatoon previously. Our pizzas were soggy, and difficult to pick up. I had to eat mine with a fork and knife #firstworldproblems.
After dinner we headed to see Bo Burnham live. It was everything I expected and more. So, so good! I definitely hope to see him live again one day. He's a comedic genius.
How is your week going so far?
