weird in the morning, episode 4

Tim just rolled over and said to me, "Do you know that on old ships, it's the ropes that keep the mast from tipping over?"

Vinto Pizzeria

Last night Tim and I tried a new restaurant in Salt Lake with his dad and step-mom called Vinto Pizzeria. Tim ordered the "Giovanni" pizza, which appears on the menu  with the following ingredient list: Prosciutto di Parma, seasonal fruit, arugula, fontina, fresh herbs, shaved parmigiano-reggiano.

What does "seasonal fruit" mean? We had the same question. The pizza came with thin slices of nothing other than cantaloupe melon. It was good.

Also, we tried a variety of their gelato and sorbetto (guilt-free): green apple and dark chocolate sorbetto; strawberry, mint chocolate chip, basil, and ginger gelato.

We appreciated most of these strange flavor combinations.

the end

Our sugar fast is officially over as of today, but I'll be honest: we've been acting like it's been over for a while now. At least now, though, I don't have to feel as guilty about it. We're not about to go crazy on the sugar thing, but we're not going to avoid it so much. For example, I've reignited my love affair with homemade strawberry jam. Yummmmmm.
