I love summer for its lovely weather, and sometimes the heat is a great excuse not to cook so we can find new restaurants and tasty things to eat.
I’m so glad Skillet opened at the Seattle Armory(Seattle Center) We already know we adore it, but I know we’ll love it more now it’s in a place we go to SO often. We can now do a full day at the Center Campus and it’s nice to finish a Children’s Museum or Science Center outing off with crustless grilled cheese and salted chocolate pudding pie. (Just a few of the delectable offerings on Skillet’s lovely menu that also has yummy kids’ meals.)
We also just tried Thai Fusion (Fremont/Interbay). How many times can you drive past a place before you finally decide to try it? We’ve passed this one way too often and I was craving Thai food and there was a parking spot out front. Thai Fusion has yummy food, a kids’ meal (we didn’t order it this time, but will definitely try it next time!) and the boys are in love with the Sweet and Sour Tofu. We will be back.
La Fiamma Pizza (Bellingham) turned out to be such a lovely wood-fire grilled pizza find. They have a fantastic lunch deal that is 8.95 for an individual pizza and salad and I had a smoked salmon one that was just divine. The kids’ cheese pizzas are 3 dollars which makes this a fantastic find.
And a bonus if you’ve made it as far as Bellingham: Mallard Ice Cream is definitely worth a stop. I arbitrarily vetoed the hubby’s choice for strawberry and chose cinnamon and blueberry (we were sharing) so WE might not be able to go back without some new ice cream sharing ground rules, but you can learn from my mistake and get your own cone.
