Tonight, after thoroughly loving Julie and Julia (two thumbs up by the way!), had it not been for the splitting migraine I’ve been fighting for a day now – or the ominous black skies over The Bubble, I would have been inspired to cook. Circumstances given though, it felt like a takeout night. So, I blew my healthy diet of veggies, fish, and no bread and gave in to Scott’s desire for Italian.
Russo’s on College Park Drive is a staple that Scott orders from both at home and work, so I decided to throw caution to the wind. While the giant pizza by the slice and gnocchi trio sounded tasty, I went for the Caprese Pizzotto. Italian flatbread stuffed with fresh mozzarella, tomato, basil, and red onion. Not usually my favorite ingredients on a thin bread – reminds me of avocado (another favorite of mine) on a club – in the end you get a soggy sandwich that requires a fork and a roll of papertowels. But alas, the bread held up and I enjoyed my first carb-filled, satisfying dinner in a long time. Scott’s giant slice of pepperoni pizza (a good foot long!) and generous serving of extra-long mozzarella sticks closed out a perfectly cheesy, gooey night. Bon Appetit!
