A little piece of heaven

Yesterday after church, I was starving!  I hadn’t eaten breakfast, just a cup of coffee.  I was helping out at the Angel Food sales desk and we (my sisinlaw n friends) chatted thru the entire 1st service.  We were in the lobby, not inside the sanctuary.  So, we decided to stay for the 2nd service and didn’t leave the church until around 2pm.  I was really HANGRY by that time!  I was with my nephews, one wanted to go to Tijuana Flats and the little one (the picky eater) wanted pizza.  So pizza it was.

We headed over to Pizza Heaven in Weston.  It’s a small Italian restaurant that has been around for ever.  When I used to work the Weston territory, I would always rush into Pizza Heaven for a quick sub or salad.  They’re very friendly and the service is quick.  The staff makes you feel like you’re dining in their home, super friendly, casual and comfortable.

We ordered a large Sicilian pizza with half cheese (for the picky eater) and half pepperoni and it was delicious.  The crust was thick and crunchy, not greasy.

I did indulge today, no doubt.  The garlic rolls came and were gone in a flash!  I had two!

My brother ordered a shrimp bisque appetizer that was made with 3 jumbo shrimp in a creamy pink soup.  Yummy, I would have had that as a meal.  It had a slight spicey twang.

And we finished a nice lunch with a warm capuccino.

I will be walking and jogging a few miles today to burn off those garlic rolls.  But because I eat healthy I can indulge once in a while.  What actually made this pizza heavenly, the company…..family. So if you’re near Weston, check it out.

It’s finally ‘FALL’ here- weekend wrap pt2

Just 2 days ago I was sweating like a pig in my own house.  It was hot inside because the a/c wasn’t working.  It was hot outside because, well because it’s South Florida in October.  But, today is another story, another day.

IT’S IN THE 50’S TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It’s heavenly.  So this is what an October fall day is like.  Church was wonderful.  I LOVE my church  and church family.  God is doing so many wonderful things there.

After church, my sisinlaw and I went next door to the nursery as they are celebrating fall with a festival every weekend this month.   There were lots of families enjoying the horse drawn hayrides, decorations, pumpkin carving contests, pumpkin and banana bread samples, and more.  Here’s some pics:

The Farmer’s Market there had yummy samples and I wish they had samples of these huge cookies.  They looked so good, but I resisted the temptation to devour one or two of them.

We were starving and headed down the street to the perfect lunch spot for a day like this.  The Vienna Coffee House & Bistro in Cooper City is a small, warm, cozy, friendly  place with yummy soups and sandwiches.  The service is great!

My sis had a turkey wrap that looked so yummy.  I love how they serve on beautiful china.
We had coffee and a capuccino to complete a great lunch.
And finally, for me, the best way to end the day is with a gorgeous sunset.
