In ♥ & Soul, Community, Foodie Friday, Home Sweet Home, Pro-DiSPO, Public Interest, Relationships, Travel, Weekly Wonders, What's Hot, Workin' Woman, Yours Truly on 02/26/2016 at 03:33

Ever since I returned to South Texas, I’ve had my share of pizzas🍕
e239029f-22be-471a-afa4-63396efade8fHere are my pie highlights:

  • Almost as soon as I relocated, I picked up a pie from the Valley‘s original The Pizzeria: Baked Ziti🍝
  • When I visited family and friends, including dinner with Bestie Evie, Mama Maggie picked out this Mac ‘N’ Cheese🧀 masterpiece from CiCi’s
  • I tried the Garlic Knots from the Hut last week + the Bacon-Wrapped from Little Caesar’s this week (except Meatless Friday today)

But when it comes down to it, Baked Ziti still is my fave YOLO, hands down! 🙌🏽 ✌🏽️2 of my faves:

  1. Pasta
  2. Pizza

Bam!👊🏽

… Dog!

{Disclaimer: If you’re a vegetarian, then you may benefit by withholding from reading the rest}

Just in time for the *4th of July*, the Hut has released Hot Dog Pizza!

I tried the Hot Dog crust earlier this week

Hot Dog Pizza

My version of a spaghetti pizza: Hot Dog Crust * Meatballs * Mushrooms … Thank you, Pizza Hut!

Hot Dog Pizza

Let me start with 1 of each, please …

Hot Dog Pizza

Time to dip … And pizza was never the same. I love marinara sauce, but now I’m a fan of mustard with pizza! Wtf (what the flavor)?

and took it up a notch with the Pretzel Hot Dog Pizza last night!

Salami to the left, Jalapeño the right … Spicy ♥Cupid♥ ♪Shuffle♫ There goes my low sodium intake!

Hot Dog Pretzel Pizza Slices

Succulent slices!

Choco-Chip Cookie Pizza

C is for … Chocolate Chip Cookie Pizza!

They paired well with my guilty pleasures as I took a break from doc stats and teaching duties!

Melo P.I.

I call this the Melo P.I.: 3 parts OJ to my last 2 parts of Midori + Pineapple (Melo short for Melon Midori & because I was mellow when I made it + P.I. short for Pineapple/Piña & Philippine Islands because I was watching Island Hunters that featured Palawan from my native country and Beachfront Bargain Hunt in South Padre Island near my former neck of the woods ~ both on HGTV)

I was happy when Little Caesar’s came out with its Hot-n-Ready Pretzel Pizza

Pretzel Pizza

White Mountain Dew for yours truly & Classic DP for Evie + Little Caesar’s Hot-n-Ready Pretzel Pepperoni for us!!! #score

Pretzel Pizza

Dipping into Garlic & Cheese Sauce ~ a Pizza-♥Lover♥’s Dream! #PizzaPizza

Now the latest pizza that I’ve tried combines the best of both YOLO hemispheres ~ let’s celebrate a ☼summer☼ favorite!

Aside from mainstream, Pizzeria Lola that Guy Fieri featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives is an ultimate on my bucket list!

Foodie Friday: Fight Night & Game Grub ~ SBXLIX Edition

With last weekend being full of festivities, we were in great food and company! My LMT girl Lisa and her hubby hosted Fight Night (UFC main event: Anderson Silva post-2013 leg injury) on Super Bowl Sunday Eve! Then I watched the Big Game with my Papa Jun!

The commonalities between both meals were:

    • pizza (Little Caesar’s & Pizza Hut)
    • dip (Ranch & Nutella)
    • oodles of noodles (post-fight & pre-game)
    • veggies (fresh & roasted)

Fight Night Feast: {clockwise from top L} Little Caesar’s Pretzel Pizza from yours truly * fruit w/chocolate fondue made by yours truly (Nutella & Philadelphia Cream Cheese) * veggies w/Ranch dressing * slider sandwiches w/Dijon mustard, turkey & cheese (either Swiss or Munster)

IMG_2164

Portion control: Lisa sliced the pizza into smaller pieces, so more could be up for grabs!

IMG_2163

These slider sandwiches were a hit! Hands down: they scored a touchdown @ this table!

Fun fact: Did you know that you burn more calories than you consume when you munch on celery due to the crunch? Challenge accepted!

IMG_2166

After the fruit was gone, a fellow cat mama & I turned to the carrots to dip into the chocolate!

To top off my plate, I had my green drink to toast!

Post-Fight: Rice Noodles w/meatballs ~ looks like this yummy bowl is Lisa‘s version of Pho!

Pre-Game: My Ramen w/Salsa + P.I. Cheese on Toast

Yes’sir, I AM the Ranch B*tch: from my salad to pizza (Supreme from the Hut)

My mom went happy on kale, both in the chili & in these chips baked in EVOO + in this green drink complete con más avocado!

Again, Context Media Health has been on point, as if it’s been reading my mind ~ this time, about Black Beans & Avocados!
