Cheap date

Tomorrow is dh's birthday and we were going to go out for dinner tonight. We usually splurge on a fancy restaurant for birthdays and anniversary, but dh just called to say that he's a bit tired and tomorrow will be another long day, so why doesn't he just pick up pizza and call it a night.

Well, we won't get a eat a really nice meal (although these pizzas at Pizza Express are better than your average pizzas...about 10 times better than Papa John's and not as greasy as Pizza Hut's), but we'll be saving probably close to $100 by not going out.

Speaking of pizzas, the BEST pizza I have ever had was a Peking duck pizza at this local restaurant called Lennie's. The best! And for a non-Chinese establishment, it was incredibly authentic tasting. I still drool when I think about it. Unfortunately, it's not something they have on the menu. It's one of those chef's whims, but usually Lennie's serves excellent pizzas and beer. Hey Epi, we should take you there when you visit!
