|PurpleCarrotKC.com : Keste Pizzeria|
Okay, it seems that durations between posts lately are getting further and further apart …. time for a post!
Things have been busy for us, hence the lack of posting. We’re kind of in a transitional period of life. In case you’re just catching up, Erik’s dad passed away a little over a month ago now, and we’ve been taking care of some of his things, as well as trying to sell our own house here in North KC. His dad lived with us the past few years during his illness, so when we moved to KC we bought a house in the ‘burbs so that Erik’s dad had his own living space with walkout basement, etcetera. It worked well for us for the time we were there, but Erik and I have always wanted to be more in the city (nor do we love having a large mortgage payment) so that’s where we’re hoping to head next. For now … the house is on the market, and we’ll go from there when it sells.
All that to say, yes, busyness abounds. We’re hoping it will sell quickly and we can get straight on a plane or in the car after closing and go on a vacation!
But first … one last catch up post from New York. Some more authentic Neapolitan pizza from Keste Pizzeria!
Keste is located on 271 Bleeker Street in NYC, and they serve delicious, authentic Neapolitan style pizza. When we walked in Erik was quick to request the seat “closest to that beautiful pizza oven” …. of course.
But I must admit, it was fun to watch the pizza making process right behind me. The cool thing about Neapolitan style pizza is that it cooks for literally only 90 seconds because the temperature of the oven (a wood fired oven) is so high.
Erik got the marinara pizza consisting of simply tomatoes, oregano, garlic and extra virgin olive oil.
I forgot which pizza Erik’s mom got, but doesn’t it look delicious?
And I got the vegetariana which had tomatoes, eggplant, mushrooms, artichoke, zucchini, and extra virgin olive oil.
We thought it was delicious!
And now … you guessed it …. I’m hungry for pizza!
