I usually read Atlanta Journal Constitution writer, John Kessler's, food blog. So when I stumbled on his review of Antico Pizza Napolatana I knew we NEEDED to try this joint. Unfortunately, I didn't bring the camera, so this is an "after" picture. Wow, wow, wow this place is good. Different than what I'm used to--there is one big table that everyone sits around, and a counter by the windows if the big table is full. Also, I hear there is a table in the kitchen, but we didn't go back to check it out. It's quite authentic, in that pretty much everyone spoke Italian and the flour, tomatoes, and other ingredients are imported. It is currently byob, so we sipped on some wine I just happened to have in the car.
We will definitely be back to have more pizza from here. Great atmosphere and the pizza is top notch. In other exciting news--look at this cute little Beaujolais! I love the mini bottles, the screw tops and I adore beaujolais :) Perfect for a picnic. Or to take to Antico Pizza.
Otherwise, we have been eating vegetable soup this week. This is such a painfully easy soup, I feel like Sandra Lee. Is it cheating to post something this easy? Sautee your onion, celery and any other vegetables you have (green pepper would have been good)
Add a couple chopped potatoes and broth to cover, cook down until potatoes are tender. Then add a bag of frozen vegetables and a can of cream of ______ soup. I used cream of mushroom, but I think cream of celery might be better. Easy food.
Baked a loaf of bread to go along with the soup. It's the "Classic White Bread" recipe from Electric Bread, with a cup of wheat flour subbed for one cup of AP flour.
Some parsley from the garden, and we're in business. With fresh bread, heels are the best! They always disappear first.
Hope you guys have a great weekend!
