Staff Fiesta at PBTS

On Tuesday evening, we had a little fiesta for the staff at PBTS. Our chef and friend Rich Pascalli and his wife Sonia catered the event. I came to Rich with the idea of doing a Mexican food feast (a little off the beaten path of a traditional holiday meal), and he was thrilled about creating a menu for us. Let's just say my mouth started watering while reading it, and the actual food was even better than I imagined.

Here is what we feasted on:

Mexican Farmers’ Market Salad with sliced cucumbers, grape tomatoes, red onion, shredded carrots, and crumbled Mexican Farmers’ Cheese, tossed in a basil and garlic vinaigrette.

Homemade Guacamole, Salsa, and Black Bean Dips with homemade corn tortilla chips

Grilled Skirt Steak Enchiladas

Chicken Tacos served with accoutrements of shredded cheese, lettuce, tomato, and sour cream.

Mexican Rice with cumin, sweet onion, cilantro, black beans, and fresh lime juice.

Toasted Coconut Flan with fresh homemade whipped cream and strawberries. It was amazing! Here are a few pictures of the spread.

I could make a meal just out of this!

My plate filled to the brim...

We are so blessed to have an amazing staff, and we all had a great time eating, exchanging secret santa gifts, and playing a few rounds of Catch phrase. We all teased Colby that he practiced at home before he brought it in because he was clearly the champion.

Of course, there were some shenanigans and general merry-making going on as well. Michael proved to be very skilled at the blow gun he received.

If you live here or come to the beach, check out Pascalli Foods. Chef Rich could create this wonderful Mexican feast or help you come up with your own menu for your next party or event, or just for a fun family dinner!

Special Discount Thursday and Friday!

This Thursday and Friday, December 8th and 9th, receive a 25% discount on EVERYTHING all day long! All you have to do is bring in a food donation. Food for Thought provides easy-to-eat meals to schoolchildren who may not have enough to eat on the weekends.

Please bring one or many of the following items: peanut butter, jelly (no glass jars), pop top (easy to open) chicken or tuna, and no cook, healthy snacks such as crackers, cereal bars, granola bars, fruit cups.

Also, Food for Thought is looking for persons who could donate some fresh items to send home to families for their Christmas meals. If you could provide fresh fruit, vegetables, hams/turkeys, or sweet baked treats, please email them at

And if you can't make it in Thursday or Friday, no worries! Pizza by the Sea is now a designated drop-off site for Food for Thought. Bring your donations any time!

Thank you so much for your willingness to give to those in need in our community!

Kids! We Need Help!

We need some pizza ornaments for our YUM tree to jazz it up a bit. And we thought that having kids make us some would be perfect! Can you help us?

Here are the guidelines:

1. The ornament has to be in the shape of a whole pizza or pizza slice.
2. It can be no bigger than about 4 inches in width (we want to fit a lot of ornaments on the little tree!)
3. We would like the child's name on it!
4. It would be very helpful if you included some sort of way to hang the ornament (ribbon or yarn would work fine).

Get creative! They can be made from tin can lids, oatmeal lids, cardboard, paper... you name it! Have the kids decorate their ornaments and bring them in to put on our tree. The tree will be up after Thanksgiving. Or, if you live far away, you can just mail it to us!

We will be posting pictures of the ornaments as they come in! We can't wait to see what the kids create ! (and keep in mind, they don't have to be masterpieces: we just want them to have fun!)

Thank you for helping us make our YUM Christmas tree look fabulous!

Alaqua Animal Refuge Benefit Day!

Our family loves animals...

{our son with our Black Lab, Pepper}

{Our 15 year old kitty}

{Our Princess bunny Ella}

All of our animals have been rescued from shelters, and we know how difficult it can be for these organizations to continue to care for these homeless animals as the number of them keeps rising.

We would like to encourage everyone to come out on Tuesday in support of Alaqua Animal Refuge, the local no-kill home for animals . You can check out their website here.

We will give 20% back to Alaqua for every ticket that says "Alaqua" when they check out! Such an easy way to make a big difference.

New Soup for You!

I don't know about you, but I love a good bowl of soup, especially when it's a bit chilly outside.
We have two new soups for you to try at PBTS: Baja Chicken Enchilada and Loaded Baked Potato.
MMM, mmm, mmm. They are both delicious.

Try them on their own, or with a salad, a breadstick, or even a slice of pizza at lunch! Other flavors we frequently offer include shrimp and corn chowder, tomato basil bisque, chili, and mushroom brie.
