Day Trip

Today we drove down to Fort Worth to see my niece Brinley and took my mom to leave her down at Cook's Children's Hospital to stay with my sister.  On the way back we stopped at Sal's Italian Restaurant 5465 N. MacArthur Blvd, Irving, Tx-----keep in mind I am not much for Italian food really it is at the bottom of the list of choices for dinner----YUCK Olive Garden----just not my cup of tea!  On the way to the BSA museum we see Sal's over in a shopping area, well my first thought is it is not even a stand alone restaurant how good can it possibly be?  Well we walk in and we are seated rather quickly because no one else is there other then people up at the full bar.  It is actually very nice inside; they had white linen tablecloths on the tables, black linen napkins and candles which were not lit but it was about 330 in the afternoon-I am sure it would be very romantic for a couple in the evening :)  The waiter immediately asks what we would like to drink which is nice considering it is so hot outside and the sweet tea is very good :)  Sean chose water (yay!) and John Dr Pepper.  We did order garlic bread with marinara sauce as an appetizer and I have to admit it was quite yummy---the bread was buttery, garlicky and crispy and the marinara sauce was quite good which is the one thing that really turns me away from Italian food there is always so much sauce on everything---actually Sean will not eat spaghetti with sauce on it----if I do fix spaghetti his has garlic butter with Parmesan cheese.    For Sean we ordered the 8" personal size cheese pizza and just to say they must have given us the wrong size because this was way larger then an 8" pizza and let me tell you it had no chance!  He ate every bite except for a little wedge of the last piece that he gave to John so he could try it!!!  John ordered for us and we both got a Stromboli (sausage, pepperoni and cheese) OMG it was out of this world!  Have not had Stromboli like that since I lived in Virginia!!!!  Best crust I have ever had and I would really love the recipe for it!  We didn't have desert but now I wish we had we were just to full then but they do have Cannoli and Tiramisu to name a couple!  Really a great place to eat...even for someone who does not like Italian food!
