Apple Picking for Fall 2017!

SATURDAY!

I have to say that I had a great birthday weekend! Check out my previous post of all the festivities!

Saturday, my mother n law hosted a little dinner for me and had over some of our family members. She made my favorite: Chicken Parmesan with pasta, garden salad, and garlic bread! She makes the best chicken parm by the way! Yum! Unfortunately I didn’t get to take any pics of the delicious dinner 😩

My ice cream cake! 😁

SUNDAY!

Sunday morning, we went Apple picking upstate in Marlboro NY. The farm had an assortment of produce from apples, grapes, eggplant, tomatoes, pumpkins, and more! 




There weren’t that many pumpkins left!
Tomatoes not ready yet!
Apple tree!
Apple cider donuts were delicious! We bought a dozen (as you can see, a few were eaten already haha!)
Here’s what we came home with: tomatoes, apples, and pumpkins!

It was such a nice day: no clouds, abundant sunshine, good food, and fun times with family! 

If you are in the area, make sure you check out this orchard!

Did you get a chance to go Apple Picking? 

The STRANGEST Pizza Toppings You Can Order In The US!

FRUIT


>>Severus Grape Pizza

Location: BROOKLYN, NY

Vinnie’s Pizzeria

This Brooklyn pizza shop has a menu with interesting topping options from kale to ground beef to avocados! The Severus Grape pizza is served with grapes, gorgonzola, roasted red peppers, and a little drizzle of honey! 

>>Bananas; The Montrose Pie

Location: LOS ANGELES, CA

Red’s Pizza

Red’s Pizzeria is owned by two Swedish brothers who wanted to introduce Americans to Swedish style pies. These brothers brought the tradition of adding pizza pies topped with bananas to their menu. Some say it reminds them of Hawaiian pizza! 

SEAFOOD


>>Tuna Fish Salad; The Tonno Pizza
Location: WHITE PLAINS, NY

Gianfranco’s

The Tonno pizza was served during Lent on Fridays for Roman Catholics who can’t eat meat during this time. But this has become a fan favorite for their customers! The tuna salad is made in house, then spread onto the baked pizza crust, almost serving as the sauce. Then shredded lettuce, sliced tomato, and a special “secret” dressing and seasonings are spread over top and is served cold! 

>>Crabs & Old Bay; Crab Pie

Location: BALTIMORE, MD 

Matthew’s Pizza

Matthew’s Pizza opened their first pizzeria in Baltimore so they found it fitting to pay tribute to Maryland’s most famous export: crab! The crab pie is topped with crab meat smothered in carmalized onions, with mozzarella and reggianito cheese! Then it’s finished off with Old Bay seasoning! 



>>Lobster; Whole Lobster Pizza

Location: GRAMERCY, NY

Florian

Florian offers an entire 1 lb lobster (including the head) on top of thin crust, mozzarella cheese, and burrata. The presentation is pretty impressive and it cost $32, perfect choice for date night! 

OTHER TYPES



>>Thanksgiving Dinner; Thanksgiving Pizza

Location: PROVIDENCE, RI

Fellini Pizzeria

This creative pizza makes its debut on a single day before Thanksgiving each year, but get this, it’s only available for 24 hours! On this pizza there is slow roasted turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, and cranberry sauce on the side! Fellini takes orders weeks in advance. They can’t offer Thanksgiving  Dinner pie as a regular menu item because it takes them about a week of prep work to prepare for a single day of orders! 

>>Frito Pie; Chili Cheese Frito

Location: MILWAUKEE, WI & Other Locations

Ian’s Pizza

Ian’s pizza started as a by-the-slice-pizzeria serving hungry college kids from University of Wisconsin. Their monthly specials always had the weirdest options including the Frito pie! They make their own beef chili in house, spread that over the pie, topped with onions, cheddar cheese, sour cream, and of course crunchy Fritos! 

Would you dare try one of these strange pizza slices?! I definitely would! =)

Which one would you try?!
