plastic free dinner & pizza

On Monday nights after umpire training, we stop for dinner somewhere. We drove around deciding and settled on Matchbox. Before we even got our pizza, I noticed that the straws were paper! I was pretty tickled by that since I've been trying to avoid single use plastic. The napkins were cloth and the ramekins were metal, so our whole dinner was plastic free! It was a nice change of pace.
The pizza was great and was made in a wood fired oven. We got two - the Holy Grail Margherita and we made our own with pesto sauce. So good! I signed up for their rewards and received a $10 reward, so we may have to go back soon and get more pizza. 

If you have one near you, definitely check it out.

link love

I love this ode to tomatoes come the end of the summer season over on Portland Sampler.

A huge pumpkin fan I am not, but this vegan pumpkin bread looks so good.

Holy moly...PBTeen has an entire line of Harry Potter home goods.

It's a sad day in the holiday food world. Dorcas Reilly, the woman who created green bean casserole, has died at 92.

Floridians voted to end live dog racing by 2020! Victory! You can sponsor a hound here.

I read The Rule of One by the Saunders sisters and it was so awesome. Check it out.

I love these baseball scoring pencils.

Check out this amazing Hickory Horned Devil Caterpillar!

tacos & beer

Saturday Kyle and I had a fabulous day out together. We were heading down to Hardywood for a beer release, but got there a little early so we headed over to En Su Boca for tacooooooos.
I tried a few different flavors. The black bean taco was really good, along with the fried fish. I wasn't a huge fan of their soy chorizo, but it made for a great photo. And their salsa gets all the heart eyes. The mild traditional salsa and their verde were fresh and delicious. Their habanero was a little too spicy for me, but still had good flavor. I'd never been before but the place had a great atmosphere!
Our next stop was Hardywood for the limited release of Trickery. Little note: I do not like stouts and didn't like it, though Kyle thought it was great. I'm a sours gal. We picked up some for Kyle and some for his best friend, but I had a nice Farmhouse Pumpkin and a Tropication on tap. We hung out for a while and had a great time.

How was your weekend?
