Diner's Drive-ins and Dives....#1

So as some of you know, B and I are food network junkies. We love to cook and create new delicious things. For spring break, my Mom took my little sweeties for a few days and we decided to head on an exotic trip to Boise, ID. He he. We love Boise and haven't been here since we lived here 4 years ago. One show on Food Network that I love is" Diner's, Drive-ins, and Dives." Tripple D, if you are an avid watcher :) Anyhow, there are about 5 or 6 spots he tried here in Boise and we decided to hit them all. Last night we tried Pizzalchik (pizza salad chicken) quirky name. It was really fun to try some new things. B tried the shroom roasted Chicken.Doesn't look like much from the outside. It is not snowing, just bugs on the windshield, I was too cold to get out and take a decent pic.
I tried the Elk Sausage and Wild Mushroom pizza. It was really good, but the flavors were so bold, I could only eat 2 slices, then the rest, I had to pluck some of the toppings off. We wanted to try "wandering Wednesday" where you can try all the pizza's, but we had to get to a hockey game by 7:00 and the wanderers didn't start wandering til 6:00. I would have loved to try more kinds. Like the salmon, artichoke, caper Pizza. That sounded too good.
B tried the shroom roasted Chicken. Wasn't that impressed. The chicken was dry and kinda bland. As a footnote though, B makes a "KILLER" roasted chicken and potatoes and I haven't ordered a chicken at a restaurant that compares to the his.

I think our favorite part of the meal was that it was served with "suga" coke out of a glass bottle. mmmmmmm..... Doesn't get much better than that. We are going to try Rick's Press Room tonight.
