Mamma Mia: Upgrade Your Pizza Night

Upgrade your pizza night

My husband and I have a Sunday night tradition of dining on pizza and wine. We toast our weekend, hit the play button on “60 Minutes” and catch up on a few of our favorite TV series. It’s a great way to unwind and get ready for the week ahead.

One of our favorite pizzerias has a frustrating habit of “accidentally” knocking its phone off the hook. It usually takes about 30 minutes for them to realize their mistake, which makes it an unreliable option.

Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice, it’s time to take matters into my own hands.

Falling for Tulsa

Falling for Tulsa is easy this time of year.

What's not to like about this season? Amazing leaf color, dramatic sunsets and dynamite weather frame my perspective. Fall is a welcomed relief after a hot, humid summer and a last hurrah before the onset of a chilly, gray winter.

What’s in a Liebster Award: Good Karma

Liebster Award

Thanks to the mother-daughter traveling team, Marvellous Journey, for nominating Snapshot Traveler for a Liebster Award.

After googling the heck out of this award to discover what it’s all about, I learned it’s basically a way to promote and recognize newbie bloggers. I definitely qualify in that category.

The German word, liebster, has several translations including sweetheart, beloved, darling, dearest and favorite. I like the sound of all of those.

Tulsa’s Catch of the Day: White River Fish Market hooks us every time

There was a time when I turned my nose up to seafood. My Mom’s disdain for anything “fishy” rubbed off on me.

Then I grew up.

It took me until just last year to cast my enlightened culinary net on the White River Fish Market and Restaurant.

This Tulsa enterprise has been importing and serving fresh fish and seafood since 1932. Located on the north side of town near the airport allows it to bring in some of both coasts’ best catches.

Some of our favorite dishes include the grilled halibut, fried catfish and shrimp, red beans and rice, hush puppies and onion rings.

The restaurant gathers an impressive crowd, especially during its lobster nights on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Line up at the counter, hand select your fish and have a seat in one of its booths or communal tables. Everyone is family here, which explains all of the regulars.

Even more than the fish, the smiling staff keeps you coming back for more.
