McHumble Pie

Last Sunday, we had a special treat, both in the relational and culinary senses of the phrase. Eric's McLaughlin relatives from the Phoenix area (seen above, with the conspicuous absence of John, Sylvia, and Sarah, who arrived a little later) came together in Scottsdale, and Aunt Katie took us all out to Humble Pie, a Scottsdale pizza joint. It was really a great chance to catch up with a very fun group of people. Maggie performed in her usual uber-social role, content the whole time to have friendly faces all around her.

A word must be said about the pizzas, since not only were the ingredients extremely fresh and tasty, but the topping options were very unique (and delicious!). There is nothing we like more than adventurous dining that turns out to be delectable. Rachel enjoyed the prosciutto and pear pizza, topped with arugula. Eric savored the potato and roasted garlic pizza, complete with fontina and fresh rosemary. Maybe this sounds like a weird pizza. It was. Weird and awesome.
