After having just finished a way too loaded semester full of ridiculous papers, nuclear weapons free simulations, and redesigning the United States Welfare system, I feel as if I need to reconnect with everyone in my life.
I kind of feel like Paige from The Vow, but instead of my memory being erased by an accident, it was erased by hopefully useful boring information. And just like her, I had to reconnect with my estranged husband all over again.
Anyway, Friday night was date night for us. It was like I had not seen him in months (he has been working on a huge project at work too), and we had to catch up on so many things. We decided on a restaurant that we have heard rave reviews of. It is called Blue Ribbon Pizzeria and is located in Encinitas, California. It was wonderful! We had house-made burrata for an appetizer and the most delicious wood fired pizza ever. According to the server, the owner, and only the owner, makes and stretches the pizza dough…which was perfect. There was only one dessert and boy was it amazing. The salted caramel butterscotch pudding was perfectly sweet and salty.
My husband always makes fun of me because when ever we go out and I like something we are eating, within a week I duplicate at home. This pudding took me 4 days to NEED again. I also decided to through some caramelized bananas on top which created a gooey masterpiece!
