Il Pescatore is a neighborhood Italian restaurant near us that people often talk about. We headed over for a quick weeknight dinner. Their menu is pretty vast and has typical Italian dishes.
Regardless of the Italian restaurant, Kevin has a tendency to gravitate toward pepperoni pizza. The pizza looked very greasy, but he said it was decent.
My meal started with a side house salad with their house dressing, raspberry vinaigrette.
For my main course, I ordered vitello alla scaloppine, veal medallions sautéed with mushrooms in a white wine sauce, which came with a side of spaghetti.
The veal was good. The meat was tender, and the sauce had a lot of flavor from the mushrooms. I was actually disappointed in the spaghetti sauce. It tasted just like typical jarred sauce that was lacking seasonings and herbs.
All in all, I’d say our meal was fairly average, but I’m willing to give it another shot since I have heard that people really seem to like Il Pescatore.
Last weekend was full of small victories. On Saturday, UF had its homecoming game. Piece of cake right? We played the University of Louisiana-Lafayette (I know, who?), and it ended up being the closest game of our season. We literally won in the last two seconds of the game. In the middle of the game, I finally had to get up in the middle of the game to blow off some steam on the treadmill. I channeled my aggression to my run, and it worked. I had a great run and the Gators won!
Later that day, Kevin and I headed to my first Orlando Solar Bears game. They are our professional hockey team, and this is their first season back after a hiatus. We got really good seats right up close to the action.
When I lived in Indiana, we used to go to hockey games fairly often, but I haven’t been since I was young. Not much seems to have changed, including the numerous fights. We saw one guy get a broken nose!
We left at the end of the second period (out of three) when the Solar Bears were losing 3 to 0. We must have been bad luck because after we left, they came back and ended up winning 5 to 3. The game was really fun and fast paced. I’m excited to go to more games now that they’re back.
