It is time for a trip back to Mellow Mushroom. On this cloudy, slightly windy, yet beautiful evening, I ordered the Funky Q. Chicken. It is described on the menu as “BBQ chicken, mozzarella and cheddar cheeses, caramelized onions, and Applewood smoked bacon. Finished with a bbq sauce swirl.” These combinations made for a good pizza on the patio.
My Friday evening consisted of a nice Jazz/Blues band at the Domain and a pizza on the patio of Flaming Pizza which overlooks The Great Lawn with its small amphitheater. This is a casual pizza joint that just opened a few weeks ago. My pizza of choice was the “Bacon n’ Shrooms” with white sauce, mozzarella, mushroom, applewood bacon, garlic, and arugula. Yummy! They only make one size pizza, about 11 inches, and you can build your own or pick one of their specialties off the menu. I believe they will all have a thin crispy crust, hot from the flaming oven. The next time I return, I will load up on a build your own version, starting with Canadian bacon and then piling on more toppings from there. 🙂
This hike was much more beautiful than I had expected. Mayfield Nature Preserve had a lot to offer in a relatively small place. I found mushrooms, wildflowers, the lake, a creek, a cave, small waterfalls, and plenty of mud to hike around in due to all the recent rains. Too much fun! 🙂
I returned to St. Edwards Park to further explore the trails. I went up the hill, and across the ridge again, but this time ventured out to the very end of the red trail that follows along Bull Creek. It was another awesome evening! I can see making this a regular exercising habit along with my routine walks on the hills of Georgetown. There is so much to see and experience in this park. 🙂
