August 26th: Eat at Vesta

So I came across this restaurant a couple years ago in downtown Denver called Vesta. I do not remember why but it really caught my eye and I have been meaning to try it ever since. 

Today is my birthday, so no better day than today. Holy goodness, it was so delicious!

Six friends came along. They had a 38 ounce ribeye that sounded just amazing! So three of us shared it. 


The idea of the restaurant is that it’s a “dipping” restaurant so most of the dishes come with lots of sauces and you dip everything. The steak was great. We also got dipping sauces with pita bread, a huge charcuterie plate and amazing dessert.

The best part though, my friends spending a great birthday with me and enjoying great food.

 

May 27th: Make Homemade Pizza

Mmmmm. Pizza. Ok, ok… I work in a pizza place so it is not usually my first go to when making dinner. But I was at the grocery store and came across this dough:


And figured today was a good day to knock this thing off my list. I thought about what toppings I wanted but decided to start simple and just go with cheese:


So first I assembled the dough in a pan with a little thickness on the edges to get some crust:


Added some sauce:


Parmesan cheese and mozzarella:



And then bakes at 425* F for 20 minutes:


Quite a delicious dinner and it only cost me 6$!
