Everyone likes pizza, right?
My first surprise of Valentines was a meal at Pizza Express Lincoln on Friday - my all time favourite place for pizza.. It's just so yummy! I also wore my brand new Iron Fist dress - a dream to wear.. Oh how I do love my grungey side!

My partner had already booked the table in advance, so it was all ready and waiting for us.. He even knew I'd want dough balls so asked for them straight away - I even got to have all of the garlic butter.. The pros of having a fussy-eater-friend. 
A double portion of our famous dough balls served with a trio of dips: pesto, garlic butter and 'nduja, an Italian favourite of spicy softened sausage and olive oil

When it came to the main, I didn't know what to have. I normally go for a calzone or something a little less pricey, but as it was Valentine's, I went for the most expensive Romana, the Mare Rossa. I could personally not taste the bisque, or any of the base really, and there wasn't enough salmon for the price paid. However, in all, though a little spicy, it was lovely!

Finishing with dessert, it was a tough choice between the Chocolate Cheesecake and the Honeycomb Cream Slice.. I went for the Honeycomb.. I'm a real sucker for salted caramel. It was served with what I call 'proper' ice cream.. That is, made with vanilla pod and tasting exactly right. In all honesty, I could have had a meal of desserts - that is how good the desserts are in Pizza Express..

What's your favourite restaurant? Do you stay in or go out on Valentines?
