Jim invited me for pizza tonight. I told him that I had a lunch date tomorrow with a friend with whom I usually go for pizza. We thought about places where there is pizza and more and came up with Tomatina in Walnut Creek.

What I usually order at Tomatina is a piadine, the round of flat bread on which is piled both a warm filling and a cold salad. You eat a piadine out of hand like a very big taco...you need a big mouth for it, but it is good and fun to eat.

Once we looked at the menu...we haven't been here in awhile...we were tempted by the many new offerings. We both decided on non-pizzas and non-pizza variations such as a piadine.

I ordered one of the April Specials: Eggplant Parmesan with a small Caesar Salad ($9).

He started with a small Caesar

and followed with Fusili with Gorgonzola Cream Sauce.

We ended our night of dining out at Naia Gelataria, a block away. We both ordered the Piccolo (small) cup (1 or 2 flavors). He had Chocolate and Pistachio; I had Green Tea and Stratiaccella.
