Last night was a fun night and hoping for more to come. For a typical Friday night, this was nothing out of the ordinary but under current conditions it was quite extraordinary.
A week or two ago when word leaked of a shelter in place coming soon, we jumped on the bandwagon like everybody else and scrambled to stock up on what seemed important, and at that moment it was Lou Malnati’s. One of our favorite weekend go tos, sit down though, not the carry out. But with shelter in place coming soon, carry out would have to suffice so we loaded up on three, deep dish, half baked pizzas to stow away in our freezer.
A few days ago on the Nextdoor app a movie suggestion piqued my interest, ‘The Peanut Butter Falcon’. The recommendation noted that even her high school and college aged sons enjoyed this movie.
Last night was a perfect pizza movie night. We indulged in our half sausage, half spinach onion, deep dish delight. It was delicious! If you’ve never tried spinach onion, maybe now is the time! And the movie, fantastic! Shia Labeouf and Dakota Johnson had leading roles, but the real star, Zack Gottsagen, an actor with Down Syndrome, hands down stole the show! This movie captured our attention, and that’s no easy feat! For my college aged son, my husband and me, the action thrilled, many scenes brought us laughter and the storyline made us all feel good. For a Friday night, the end of the work week night, the night where you just let go of the busyness and craziness from the past five days, I am happy to say that last night was a fun night and hoping for more to come.
