The one caveat to moving into a grown-up house this summer has been our wallets have taken a teeny, tiny hit. Indeed it is sad that going out to try new restaurants, one of my favorite hobbies, isn't high on the priority list. Then again, our house looks supes cute so I'd say it was a fair trade-off!
But just because we're not going out as much doesn't mean I'm not trying to whip up some tasty eats at home. And it's definitely a good thing I like bringing the restaurant home with new recipe testing!
When we do go out to eat, one of our favorite restaurants is a place we discovered a few years ago, Mioposto. It's this quaint neighborhood Italian bistro that you could easily miss. We really only discovered it from taking a drive in this area while looking for apartments. We finally decided to try it last year for a date night and we've been going back ever since.
What we ordered the first time became our order every other time we have gone because why mess with perfection? We get the ceci, roasted chickpeas with fried garlic and sage, oven roasted Hood Canal clams with white wine, butter and garlic, served with their housemade oven baked Mio bread (essentially like pizza dough-esque bread for sopping up all the juice), Caesar salad, a perfect rendition of a classic, and, the pièce de résistance, the spring lamb pizza.
