What's a hippie roll? Its probably 1 of the most delicious items you can eat that doesn't contain chocolate! Take Italian sausage and slice it length-wise. Lay it on pizza dough and add sauteed peppers and onions. Roll up and bake until golden brown. Absolutely delcious!!
For our group of 15 we ordered 30 hippie rolls, 3 large pizzas, 1 salad, 1 pasta dish, and 15 drinks. This info will be important in a minute.
We had lots of great conversations and laughs as we caught up with each other and really just enjoyed being together.

Once we'd finished our meal and asked for the check, the waitress informed us that the folks who'd given us the pamphlets had paid our bill. We were all in shock, and immediately regretted our snarky comments about the pamphlets. We estimated the bill was over $200 without the tip. So we left the waitress a generous tip and vowed to send a thank you note to the address on the pamphlet.
After saying our goodbyes we took Spouse's mom back to her place and relaxed at his sister's house for a few hours. Then for dinner we met up with our friends Liz & Justine. Spouse & Justine worked together 20+ years ago and were roommates for several years too. Liz & Justine lived with us for 18 months while they saved to buy a house. We met at Cantina Mexicana (also known as the Taco House) at 7:30 and left at 11:15. The time just flew by! It had been a few years since we'd we seen them so we had a lot of catching up to do. We also got great hugs from Juan & Gloria, the owners of Cantina Mexicana, whom we've known for 20 years.
We had a fabulous day reconnecting with friends!
