Rock Me, Amadeus!

Today began, like most, with a doctor's appointment. This makes me extra glad that Jen switched to the doctor five minutes away. It makes it easy to access and maintain my mayorship on foursquare.


As soon as I got home I put out some bread and cheese. For cheese I selected this Amadeus cheese from Austria. I got it for a few reasons. Firstly, it was on sale. Secondly, it looked pretty tasty. Thirdly, it gave me a reason to sing, "Oooooh, rock me, Amadeus!" during dinner. Jen appreciated the first two reasons. Not so much with the last reason.

Tomato Salad with Feta and Red Onion

I made this salad with Kumato tomatoes, red leaf lettuce, croutons, feta cheese, and red onions. It had a lot of promise but, unfortunately, the lettuce was kind of gross. Every so often you get a batch of lettuce that sort of tastes like dirt. Sadly, we were due for a kind of gross head of lettuce.

Tomato Juice

I had chopped, seasoned, and strained some tomatoes for the pizza tonight and I tossed the salad with the flavorful tomato juice which leeched out of the tomatoes. This would have been a lot better had the lettuce not been disgusting dirt lettuce.

Pesto Tomato Pizza with Red Onion, Mozzarella, and Bella Lodi

For the pizza we took a rare departure from our normal tomato-based pizza. I made this pizza with pesto, drained tomato, red onion, mozzarella, and Bella Lodi. This was far tastier than the salad as it contained virtually no dirt!

Uinta Brewing Company Hop Notch IPA

For beer I poured this Hop Notch IPA from Uinta Brewing in the great state of Utah. This was another really nice beer from Uinta. Much like their Wyld Pale Ale this had a very nice floral hoppy taste to it, though I think I liked the Wyld a bit better. This was a very nice beer but the Wyld was something extraordinary as far as I am concerned.

Also, as far as I am concerned, "Ooooh, rock me, Amadeus!"
