Yesterday we went to an early lunch at Pizzeria Mozza for my mother in-laws 58th b-day. We started with fried squash blossoms, cauliflower fritti (so good), arancine alla bolognese, meatballs al forno (best thing I had all day) and bruschette with burrata, balsamic and roasted spring onions. We shared 3 pizza’s including an egg, bacon and yukon gold pizza, a goat cheese, leek, scallion pizza and a salame, tomato and fresno chile pizza. Crust is great on these pizzas, but they get a little watery towards the middle. Overall a great lunch. Picked a nice franciacorta off the list and brought a bottle of 2009 Giorgio Pelissero Barbera d'Alba Piani that paired well with everything.

Put a slice of cheddar on there and you'd have yourself a Bella Donna special. LOL

Olive oil, garlic & a nice char is all it takes to make me smile.

Smile...I have a friend that has a schedule much like mine, and Saturday often works well for lunch.
A glorious day in Dallas, and we reserved our favorite table on the patio.

We are heading out for Carne Asada, a few rita's and citrus based salsa.
Had a delicious lunch yesterday. Marinated australian rack of lamb (marinade was basil infused olive oil, dijon mustard, salt and pepper, garlic and a touch of herbes de provence); grilled to medium rare and cut in "double chop portions". Side of roasted garlic and slightly minted couscous.
I buy Safeway's version of the Ready-Pac Bistro salads, and if I buy 3 or more at a time they're only $2.99 each. I have one just about every day for lunch, along with a glass of San Pellegrino sparkling mineral water

Yes. Seems to have a good variety of specialty pizza. Hard to make a final determination from one lunch though.

Had the all meat pizza with bacon, finnochiona, fennel sausage, guanciale, tomato & mozzarella. Toppings were ample and of very good quality. The crust was super thin (so thin that it was almost non-existent in the center. Knife and fork action.

Good overall, but not drop dead wow. I want to go back and try the Friday lamb shanks special.

Agree on the crust. I love the outer crust, but it is so thin in the middle that it can get watery.
Awesome sushi for lunch with gkapoor today. Mr. Kapoor generously brought a 96 Clos des Goisses and paid for lunch! Wine was excellent.

I'm often available for lunch, though it is a helluva drive for me to get there without much notice.

That is what the label says; S.PELLEGRINO SPARKLING MINERAL WATER (natural mineral water with natural CO2 added* Total disolved solids 948mg/l)

What would you call it?
I'd just call it San Pellegrino or bottled water or water. No further embellishment is necessary unless you want to make bottled water sound special. (By the way, the word "natural" is meaningless when it comes to food. Rat droppings are natural.)
I am strolling uf and down Monferrato hills for tasting and business...i have brought just sandwitch filled with boiled beef leftover and crunchy fresh onions slices.
Well, it is not "just bottled water." It is mineral water, with bubbles added. San Pellegrino does make a plain bottled water called Acqua Panna, but I don't buy bottled water unless it has something that doesn't come out of my Brita pitcher.
