Italian in Savannah GA #FoodieFriday

This Foodie Friday is about a restaurant in Savannah GA.

Cuoco Pazzo
Cucina Italiana
606 Abercorn Str , Savannah GA

To be honest, the only reason why we pick this Italian restaurant in Savannah was because it was in walking distance from our bread and breakfast inn and we were hungry. We looked at their menu before hand. Hubs wanted spaghetti and meatballs and that should’ve been simple. I did not see simple spaghetti plate on the menu and Hubs pointed it out.

I said, “What Italian restaurant does not serve simple spaghetti with meat sauce? That is like Italian 101.”

Well I got my answer.
Cuoco Pazzo does not serve spaghetti and meat sauce or meatballs for dinner. They serve it at lunch, but not for dinner.
Talk about being annoyed.

I asked if we could order a side of spaghetti and a side of meat sauce. They only had marinara sauce. Not meat. Yeah, Hubs would not go for that.
I asked if they had angel hair pasta. The only two pasta options they had were spaghetti and pappardelle.

“Do we need more time before we order?” asked the server.

Absolutely. While my mind was still reeling from the fact that they do not have spaghetti and meatballs, we decided to order Capricciosa flatbread. This had tomato sauce, ham, artichoke, mushroom, and mozzarella cheese. Also to be noted, this was the only flat bread with meat.

At this point, the mood and our table was not good. Neither of us ordered what we really wanted and we were too hungry to go elsewhere.

We had an added complication: it was 7 PM on Christmas Eve. If we got in our car and drove around downtown Savannah who is to say anything else would even be open?

The server told us at the flatbread was “excellent” and “out of this world “. He even said it was the best he ever had because it was cooked in a brick oven.


The reality was that it was not that impressive to me. The middle of both of our flatbreads was soggy. Hubs ate the toppings only. I ate two of the four pieces, leaving some of the crust because it was too soggy and tasted like raw dough. The server asked if Hubs did not like his flatbread, and I told him the crust was soggy.

They offered to make a new flat bread for us to take. We said we did not want it, but they insisted.

TOW Final word: A lot of people were very satisfied with the food, but we wish we had had another option. I wish the kitchen could have been more flexible or at least offered more than the limited options for dinner. Service was great though. Check out their menu online and if it appeals to you EXACTLY as written, you will probably like this place.

My name is Savannah Miller.
My father is the mayor of New York. One day after my twenty-seventh birthday I was grabbed from behind. A cloth sack was quickly pulled over my head, and I was taken from everything I’d ever known.
I was beaten, starved, treated like an animal, and forced to live in a room with no windows. With no sense of time and no dignity left I finally gave up hope and made a promise to myself to end it all. Unfortunately, it was going to be a slow process.
Then one night an elite group of US Army soldiers came to my rescue. I was brought to a safe house and given two options:
One—Stay under their protection and follow their rules or…
Two—Leave and be guaranteed to be returned to the savages within a week.
I chose option one.
As I work with a therapist and begin processing my hellish ordeal things slowly begin to surface. With the help of new friends and a potential new love I fight to get my life back and make choices that will forever alter my future.
This is my story…

 

 

 

 

After witnessing the murder of her lover and the heartbreaking loss of their unborn child, Savannah wants to end it all.
Then she is given a second chance at love. Sadly, even when life hands you second chances it doesn’t always follow that things will work out the way you want them to.
Some lies can just be too painful to move on from. What’s worse than being Broken? Being shattered…



 




Savannah takes control…
Tired of all the lies and deception, Savannah Miller must learn to face life on her own. As she seeks to find out who she really is, she still is still burdened with the fallout from past traumas that left her broken.
Her fragile hold on her new life slowly gives her the confidence to move ahead. What she really needs is right in front of her—Cole Logan is patiently waiting for the right moment to prove his love. But her past isn’t finished with her yet…

Try It Tuesday: Revitalizing Supreme+ Global Anti-Aging Cell Power Creme @EsteeLauder


I have recently added to products to my nightly beauty regimen. I received the recommendation to use these products from my local Estee Lauder sales associate  (located at Belk in Greenwood SC). Props to them for knowing their products!

Estee Lauder Revitalizing Supreme+ Global Anti-Aging Cell Power Creme

This is for all skin types
Apply AM and PM
Ideally to be used after your repair serum

Estee Lauder Advance Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II

Apply nightly after you cleanse your face
Apply moisturizer afterwards

Since I started using these together, I thought I would give my thoughts on both in one post.

I should have taken before and after pictures so that you could have seen the difference. I did not expect by skin to look as improved as it did. It was a gradual improvement.

One day I was taking a selfie and thought that my skin looked radiant. I thought it was the lighting. Later, I took another selfie in different circumstances and I thought my skin still looked good. I tried to think about what I was doing differently and I realized…it’s these new creams and serums that I am using on my face!

I am not exactly sure what each product is doing to my face, but the effects are wonderful. My skin looks like it has a glow and look smoother.

I was using a different serum but it was too harsh for my skin. This has repaired some of that damage and evened out my skin tone.

TOW Final word: Buy or Pass
Buy. These are two great products and they are gentle on my sensitive skin.

Hytek Gar Essential Oil Case #TRYitTuesday

This week I am talking about essential oil cases. This is a necessary item if you use essential oils and want to transport them.

Hytek Gear Essential Oil Carrying Case Holds 30 Bottles (5ml-15ml), Black 

This is what they say

  • Professionally Sewn – High Quality Fabric and Zipper.
  • Soft padded cloth interior to protect bottles. Holds up to 30 Bottles – 5ml, 10ml, 15ml.
  • Compatible with all brands of Essential Oils!
  • Top Handle for easy transportation. Perfect to travel with all of your oils safely.

TOW Opinion
I love this case because it is durable and the right size for me to carry my oils to classes. I mostly have 15ml bottles in there and they fit snugly. When I walk, the bottles are not jostling around.

I have a few larger bottles (30ml) that I keep in the back because I have to force them, but it is not an issue. Considering that the case is not for the bigger bottles, I knew that it was a possibility that they would not fit. It is a tight fit, but I am not stressing the seams.

I like the fact that the handle is on top so that when I carry the case, all bottles remain upright.

TOW Final word: BUY. The entire case is good quality and I highly recommend it.
