Saying Goodbye to Summer…

And my favorite Summertime activity: Pizza and an Outdoor Movie

While I love Autumn and all its colors, I’m going to miss warm summer nights under the stars and taking in a movie with good food and friends.   Here’s a delightful evening out from this summer with my friend Zoe in Baltimore.  She knows I just love great, thin crust pizza so she took me to Iggies, whose tag line is “Pizza with a Purpose,” and what a purpose, oh my!  Their pizza is not only beautiful, but a sheer delight for the taste buds.  I love to sit outside whenever I can, (it let’s me pretend I’m at a café in Europe somewhere – a regular fantasy of mine.)

Above is one of the pizza’s we had, we called it our desert pizza: with pear, gorgonzola, and drizzled in balsamic reduction, oh so good!  Everything is just so tasty there, so you can’t go wrong.  Also pictured is the Iggies salad, with goat cheese, mushrooms and (get this) a warm pancetta dressing! (We substituted the spinach for arugula and it was perfect.)    

Then we went inside to pick out our Gelato to be enjoyed during the movie and I just had to take some snaps of the pizza making process.

The perfect pizza dough. Where it all begins!

Here I think Zoe’s thinking, “What the hec is she taking pictures of now? I’m not in it am I? Oh…wait…how do I look?” {Click}

Pizza flipping dogs, so cute!

Here is  “The Princess Bride” being shown on the side of a building at “Flicks on the Hill” in Baltimore.   Super sweet and fun movie.

So tonight I took one last walk outside with a gorgeous Harvest Moon to say:  Goodbye Summer!  See you next year!

    Happy memories! Come back soon and we’ll ring in fall at Iggies, too! 🙂

    It looks like summer got a reprieve for a few days!

    I hope it keeps going a little while longer Pete!

    My friend Laurie shared this with me on FB – the perfect Harvest Moon song!
