My BFF is visiting from Austin for a few days, so of course that means a whole lot of talking, lounging, and eating extra-delicious food. We went out for my favorite local pizza (Cane Rosso) right after I got her from the airport, and tonight we went to Liberty Burger for The Nooner: It has hashbrowns on it! And an egg! OMG it’s so good! And tomorrow before she leaves we’re hitting the amazing BBQ place nearby (One90) and my favorite bakery (Haute Sweets Patisserie) that’s right next door. After I drop her off at the airport tomorrow afternoon, I’ll try to remember what a vegetable is again. Promise. 😉
Day 1 of Geek Girl Con (#GGC15) is done. It was great, with some interesting sessions, and lots of cool cosplay. (I’ll share some specific thoughts/notes/resources on all of it later.) I’m really looking forward to a few of the panels tomorrow, and wandering around Seattle a bit more in the hopefully rain-free afternoon. Also, anything that includes this sign is my kind of place: And we grabbed pizza for dinner at MOD on 6th. (Cheap, tasty, friendly service, and they also have milkshakes!) Dinner at @modpizza tonight. Yum! A post shared by Sarah Blackstock (@sarahblackstock) on Oct 10, 2015 at 8:25pm PDT
For the past several months, we’ve been really great at eating dinner at home during the work week. We’ve got our routine down: plan meals Saturday, shop at Central Market early Sunday Morning (it’s Hatch Chile Fest time right now!), Husband cooks us delicious, properly-portioned food all week (with help keeping track of it all using MyFitnessPal). The weekends, however, are another story. We hit the town for our faves & to try new places. On Saturday, we tried Stackhouse Burgers in Dallas (near Deep Ellum). They’ve got the standard burger toppings, lots of cheese options, good bacon & buns, and delicious fries. Plus you can opt to have your burger a bit pink, instead of well-done. And the restaurant is in a cute old house! Burger & fries kind of weekend. We tried Stackhouse Burgers on Gaston (near Deep Ellum). Really good & in a cute house.

My BFF (of 18 years!) flew to Dallas from Austin to visit me this weekend. (Virgin ran a deal a while back and we both got tickets for weekend visits for around $100.) And here’s the thing that’s really great about when your best friend comes to stay at your house: You don’t have to DO anything special for it to be great. There’s no pressure to put on a whole production to entertain and/or impress. Your BFF is there to visit YOU, and so you can spend hours upon hours talking & talking & talking. And then you can watch about 12 episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. And you can go to a bakery and get a ton of sweets to eat when you’re not out grabbing your favorite pizza. It’s great & I highly recommend it. 😀 I had the best pizza ever this weekend @canerossotx. Prosciutto & fresh mozzarella made in-house. And dessert pizza! #pizza #dallas A post shared by Kim J. | owlpacino | (@owlpacinophotos) on Jun 28, 2015 at 1:24pm PDT
My BFF is visiting me for the weekend & so I’ve taken her to my favorite pizza place in Dallas (or anywhere) and tried a new bakery: Cookies! From Haute Sweets in Dallas. Macarons: cookie butter. earl grey. raspberry. caramel. So pretty & delicious. #cookies #treats #dallas #hautesweetspatisserie @hautesweetspatisserie A post shared by Kim J. | owlpacino | (@owlpacinophotos) on Jun 26, 2015 at 2:14pm PDT Found a new favorite! SO GOOD.
My sister drove to Dallas this morning to visit for the weekend, so of course we had to take her to the pizza place we’ve discovered since the her last trip up. It’s amazing. Cane Rosso‘s four locations around DFW make up four of the five places in Texas certified by the American delegation of the Associazione Vera Pizza Napoletana for serving authentic neapolitan pizza. I’d never had neapolitan pizza before trying Cane Rosso and OHMYYYYYYY. It’s so good. Full of flavor, and on the light side (for pizza at least). They bake their pizzas for at around 900F for about 90 seconds in a red oven you can spot when you walk in the door. I seriously can’t say enough good things about this pizza. (Also recommend their desserts!) Lunch at @canerossotx in Dallas. 😍 Certified authentic Neapolitan Pizza and soooooo good. Try the Ella for simple & delicious.
