Chess and Pizza

My weekend was all about Chess and Pizza.

With some beignets on the side.

On Saturday morning, I met up with Sarah for a lovely breakfast of serious beignets. Gotta love morning pastries! Then on the way home, Brian and I stopped by one of the giant chess boards in Houston. Brian is a great chess player. Me - not so much.

Then this afternoon, we had an awesome pizza lunch. At the start of this year, I started a "Foodie Club", and every month we meet at a restaurant representing a different country. We've had chicken feet at a Chinese place, German food, Indian, Ethiopian, and this week was Italian. Yumminess!

Ohhhh yum, Italian! I have never tried pears on pizza before, but I will! I wish I was an avid chess player, but I'm not...so you're not alone. :)

Chess and Pizza - awesome! Sounds like a lovely weekend :)

I had a church event that I was basically in charge of go very smoothly so I am well pleased with myself... and more than a little grateful to God ;) And I got California Pizza Kitchen for dinner, which is always the highlight of my weekend!
