Pizza Press and Goodies from Mom

Our experience with Pizza Press is that it is kinda like Pizza Hut. The other day someone told Ryan it was the best ever and then someone said the same thing to me, so we thought we'd try it again. The people sitting next too us started with these...
They smelled so good so I could not resist. I mean really people, fresh calamari, literally right from the ocean here. They also ordered these and since Ryan does not eat calamari, we ordered onion rings too.
Then on to the pizza. We weren't so hungry that we needed two pizzas, so Ryan went veggie for the meal. My fave pizza is pineapple and since they had this on the menu, that was what we decided on...
All in all it was still like pizza hut to us. Not the worst, but there is better pizza on the island. They do have other items on the menu and I really liked the calamari.
One nice surprise I had over the past week was the actual arrival of our Calphalon wedding registry completion. I processed the gift just before we moved, but then couldn't get it forwarded. This was in June, but it did finally show up after calling them over the past few months. So here is our wok...
and a turner!!!
THANK YOU MOMMY!!!
I got this awesome care package/Hanukah gift from my mom. She literally walked through Trader Joe's with me on the phone and shopped for me. She even read me ingredients to make sure it was vegetarian. This is what it looked like when I opened it up.
Of course no Hanukah gift is complete without some gelt and driedels...
A variety of Clif bars and Luna bars...
Can't wait to try this out...
Fruit leather...
Yummy mix of various grains...
Can't wait to make this either. I love ginger, hehe, that's my dog too!
Very curious about these sesame crepes. Anyone ever tried these?
Bean and barley soup mix...
As always, gotta have the PB pretzels...
Well, that was most of what my mom sent me. I have a bunch of boxes coming from her and I will also show some of those from my dad. It's Hanukah time so the boxes are piling up!!!
QUESTION: What was the best package you received in the mail this year? Hey, I live overseas so my life revolves around packages!!!

OH I LOVE packages!! I forgot you were Jewish, happy Hannukah (well, early, but still...)!! What a fantastic gift from your mother. Nothing beats Trader Joe's goodies and Calphelon pans!! Be careful NOT to use real silverware anywhere near that pan, it will ruin it (take it form me...).

I really want to try some of that calamari. I've only ever had the not-so-fresh kind, as living in Ohio makes it thought to get the fresh stuff. I don't think I ever ordered any when I was in Mexico or Bahahamas.

Best package in the mail this year: Barney Butter!

The fresh calamari sound awesome! And what a nice package from your mom. And how nice that she was your personal shopper with you on the phone... :)

I buy a ridiculous amount of stuff online, and I participate in the Amazon Vine program where I get free stuff to review, so I get a LOT of packages. I think my favorite thing I got this year was my Nikon DSLR--I love taking pictures!

But my absolute favorite package related thing this year was a comment from our UPS guy. Most of the time we're not home when he comes, so we have to go to UPS to pick the stuff up. When I was actually home one day he said to me "Oh so you do exist. I thought you were like Santa. And your house isn't full of cardboard boxes--that's amazing!" Made me laugh for days!

Happy (early) Hanukah!

I love getting packages. My mom used to send cute holiday themed stuff when I was in college. Decorations for my dorm, pajamas, etc. Now I just look forward to getting boxes of food to sample!

Wow, this is definitely making me hungry. I just went for a run and could use some fuel. I love calamari, and that pizza looks delicious at the moment! I also love peanut butter filled pretzels, of course because they're filled with PB!

Best package ever might have to be my new treadmill!
