Rollin’ Oats

by Meghann on May 11, 2011

Guess who remembered her wallet today?

This girl! :)

I had a lovely Summer Breeze Iced Tea while soaking in the free wifi and working the afternoon away. Sorry about the minor blog melt down earlier today. The server was down for a minute which caused some really funky hiccups with the blog. Everything should be fixed now. *fingers crossed*

Once my computer ran out of of juice (that’s how I gage when I’ve been at a coffee shop way too long), I nibbled on a serving of trail mix…

and headed to Rolin’ Oats.

As much as I love Whole Foods, there’s something to be said about local health food stores. Usually they have a heavier emphasis on local products, a hot bar and deli that seems a tad fresher, a personal approach to marketing, and they really care about their customers. It just seems more personal and approachable.

I had a ball exploring Rollin’ Oats! They had some fun items I’ve never seen before and couldn’t wait to try. I had no problem leaving with a bag full of goodies.

Maybe, remembering my wallet wasn’t such a good thing after all. ;)

After surveying the abundance of choices I now had, I decided to try out the Sami’s Bakery Millet & Flax Pizza Crust for dinner.

Sami’s Bakery is a local bakery that specializes in gluten-free and low carb bread. I’ve only seen their stuff in local health stores, but I know it’s good! I made sure to stock up on a few items, including the crust. :)

I also bought some meatballs that I knew would make a delicious, protein packed pizza topping.

The flax pizza crust was for me, but the meatballs were for Derek.

Other toppings:

  • Pizza Sauce
  • Okra
  • Mozzarella
  • Parmesan
  • Onion
  • Mushrooms

In the oven at 375 for 20 minutes

Check out that bubbly cheese

I had 1/4 of the pizza with a beer

This wasn’t any ole beer. This was THE Chocolate Stout I fell in love with at Foozbuzz Festival this year. I nearly jumped for joy when I saw it at Rollin Oats.

The pizza was great. The crust has a nice crispiness to it and the toppings exploded with flavor.

Nothing better than pizza and beer. :)

Then a sour mood moved in. Darn you sour mood!

I ate a cookie.

More beer would have been better. :/

Oh well.

I need to find someplace to board Maddie in Tampa for the weekend, any suggestions?
