Week 13: Food

Happy Monday everyone (yes, I know that that is an oxymoron in every sense)! The weather was absolutely gorgeous this weekend in Brooklyn and I had the pleasure of having our in-laws out to visit! My father in law is a HUGE fan of NY pizza and so he wanted to try the first pizzeria to open in the US Lombardi's which officially opened in 1905. Initially, I assumed it would be a big tourist trap with not very good pizza, but I was quickly proved wrong! The interior of the pizzeria feels like it could have been the backdrop for numerous movies/tv shows and the atmosphere is fun and open. I think this is purposely done so that you can oooo and ahhhhh when you see what the other diners ordered! We ordered the Clam Pie (delicious) and my father in law took the liberty of ordering a large pizza with Citterio pancetta, homemade meatballs, roasted red peppers, wild fresh mushrooms and red onions and it was absolutely amazing! The freshness of the ingredients truly stand out immediately as you take your first bite. With freshly melted mozzarella stretching like Gumby and the richness of the combinations of flavors, every bite was its own unique and fabulous experience! I have to admit, pizza just won't be the same after we leave New York!

For the picture, I really wanted to focus the attention on the beautiful colors and savory look of the ingredients!
