Last night was my boyfriend Michael’s Surprise Birthday party! I had it at Apizza Scholl’s here in Portland (his favorite pizza) http://www.apizzascholls.com/. They have gourmet pizza to die for. Here’s an example of a few pizzas we got:
Pig & Pineapple – $23 Our house plain pie plus Applewood smoked Canadian bacon, Onions and Pineapple.
New York White Pie – $22 Mozzarella (whole milk & fresh), pecorino romano, ricotta, lots of fresh garlic, herbs, black pepper, sea salt, extra virgin olive oil.
Plain Tomato Pie – $19 Tomato sauce, mozzarella (whole milk & fresh), pecorino romano and extra virgin olive oil with Hot Capicollo.
Michael was totally surprised! Success! I was glad no one spilled the beans, and 12 of his friends showed up to help celebrate. We had black balloons and his friend Scott kindly made a banner.
The pizzas were a hit. There were a few pitchers of Portland beer. I had 2 glasses of Pinot Grigio. I had two pieces of pizza–even though I wanted a third, I held back (thank goodness) and then the night went downhill (calorie wise).
The party moved next door to the Bar of the Gods and I had two more glasses of wine. I have no idea what I was thinking. We were having a great time and I just wasn’t paying attention. I’ve been kicking myself all morning for essentially drinking a bottle of wine! UGH! I am a two drink kind of a person. Last night was just a stupid mistake. Oh well, nothing I can do about it now.
It was a great night. I had a lot of fun and Michael was happy. Successful night!
