MixTec… mexican for dinner.. why? Cuz I’m lazy

Stomach still sick from the day before. Although Pho helped

Quite a story.. it all started with making clam chowder the day before. Or wanting to. So today I said let’s cook. W wanted pizza earlier after batman so I said let’s make it. aking pizza fresh turned into buying frozen pizza.. turned into buying roast chicken and clam chowder to buying Roast chicken from … and then maybe Gyro.. to MEXICAN! Cuz I love soup, and I’m lazy.

Sopa Azteca

tortilla soup made with tortilla strips in tomato base chicken broth with cheese and fresh avocado.

Vegetarian soup with chunks of avocado, melted cheese in a tomato broth with tortillas melted in.  I’m pretty sure the black soft rings were Pasilla peppers. MMM. – which is common ingredient in this soup.  It was delicious but the tortilla and the heavy amounts of oil from the cheese made it a bit greasy and too much for me.  I actually don’t like tortilla and bread softened and melted into my soups so I’ll probably just stick to the yummy Consomme Ranchero – freshly chopped onions, cilantro, shredded chicken and rice in a light chicken broth and ranchero salsa – that I’ve gotten a few times.

My lone Grilled Fish Taco
Came with a light mango salsa… scallions, cilantro, tomatoes.. but the fish itself was bland and a bit too fishy… def not fresh.. and I swear it wasn’t grilled.. def lightly breaded and pan fried… meh – Lime, guac and hot sauce didn’t help it.. good thing W ordered a lot.

Chicken Quesadila

Beef Quesadilla

Both served with Pico De Gallo, Guacamole, And Sour Cream :] BOTH were bigger than the size of my head – just one piece filled us up.  I was a trooper and tried to eat more too… #BURST.

We both got some Jarritos, Mexican Soda.. but they don’t have my favorite, Guava, so I got lime and W got Fruit Punch. YUM

“Snack” at We, The Pizza after an afternoon at the Botanical Gardens

After a delicious breakfast full of piggie fatty goodness… I headed off to the Botanical Gardens :D SOOO PRETTY – The weather was SOOO fabulous!!!!

It wasn’t super big but it was beautiful and sooo much fun to walk around in. I snapped so many pictures but I figure you guys don’t wanna see hundreds of flowers over and over again on this post LOL.  I was getting super thirsty and hungry.. again…. so we went to visit Chef Spike at We, The Pizza. We were originally gonna eat some burgers at his burger place, Good Stuff, – conviniently RIGHT next door to each other – but ended up getting suckered in PIZZA!!!!


We ended up getting 6 slices for two of us… a freshly homemade orange soda for W and a Blue Moon for me :] MMMMM

From bottom and then clockwise…

[and yes this was a “SNACK” :] TEEHEEHEEHEEHEE]

Spinach & Artichoke Pie: Béchamel, sautéed spinach and roasted chokes, aged provolone, Parmesan cheese

White Pie: Today’s ricotta, fontina, roasted garlic, Parmesan, mozz, sea salt, olive oil, fresh Italian parsley

These two were a bit on the dry side for me. the flavors were good but I like my cheese ooeyyyy and gooey but then again we had so many slices we couldn’t eat them piping hot all at the same time. #fail.

Colletti’s Notorious BBQ Pie: Slow roasted pulled pork with Colletti’s award winning BBQ sauce, cheddar and crispy onions

TONSSSSS of crispy onions on top with tender pulled pork.  The BBQ sauce was a bit on the sweet side but I loved the crispiessssss on top!!!

Buffalo Chicken Pie: Spicy boneless chicken wings, creamy blue cheese, mozz, Miguel’s hot sauce

Alternating Blue Cheese and Hot Sauce.. hahaha.. I took a huge bite of all hot sauce LOL… tangyyyyyy

Forest Shroomin’ Pie: Wild forest mushrooms, truffles, mozz, fresh thyme

OH MY LORDY. Orgasmic.

Spicy Mexican Pie: Tomato sauce, mozz, free range chicken breast topped with peppers, onions, chipotle, cilantro, Mexican spices and a splash of lime

This was super tasty, it was like a fajita on a pizza MMMM, I’m a sucker for spicy things… MMM loved the flavors and complexity of each bite, a different burst of flavors and textures in each nibble :]

SO, I originally thought we were getting a slice each so I chose the Spicy Mexican.. W went for the Mushroom.. and then a few more.. hahahaha See I took a bite of each but you can tell which one was our favorite :] The Mushroom pizza was SOOOOOOOOOO GOOOD #dies…. GOOOOOEY cheese, TRUFFLE-Y bechamel.. omg… happiness… I could eat a whole pizza of that.

Piccies a la W :] Ninja creeper…
