This Month at a Glance
Thank God I have pictures to remind me of what I did all month.
My month started off with one of my Seattle Food Blogger Events.
The destination this time, Beecher's Cheese. We met at the Beecher's headquarters for a mini behind the cheese tour, headed to the Maximus Minimus pork truck and ended with a party at the Sugar Mountain headquarters.
This is Kurt Beecher Dammeier, the owner of Beechers, Maximus Minimus and all the other Sugar Mountain establishments. Here he is talking to the bloggers about how he got started. The Maximus Minimus pulled pork sandwiches were packed with umami flavor which made it hard to believe that no MSG was involved. I am ultra sensitive to MSG and don't eat at many places because of this. I felt great after this meal and have been craving another Max/Min sandwich ever since.
Happy Hour at Ponti
I tried out some of the happy hour items at Ponti. A great place for some happy hour snacks($5-$7 items)and a romantic view of the water.
Tutta Bella Issaquah is now open
We took our baby with us to Tutta Bella Issaquah's new location for a special blessing of the oven ceremony. Tutta Bella is Seattle’s first Vera Pizza Napoletana
certified Neapolitan pizzeria, and with this new location, it is the first one on the Eastside. Each oven was blessed and named by Father Bryan Dolejsi of St. Joseph Catholic Church and School in Issaquah. The tradition was inspiring especially with the people swaying to the music being played live by Michael Gotz, Casey MacGill’s Blue 4 Trio, The Tarantellas and the soloist performances by Jadd Davis and Richard Gray. My baby was enjoying all the people clapping to the music.
He thought that they were clapping for him.
