Long Time, Pasta Time
Yeah, I know it's been a month. Drop it! Please. I'm back to tell you about pasta, delicious, ooey-gooey pasta!
When I was a kid, my favorite cuisine was Italian. What's not to love? You have: tomatoes, cheese, meat, and carby-carb-carbs. All of the best and most essential food groups are present in a beautiful mouth bouquet. I also loved super rich desserts I could only eat a few bites of before feeling sick.
All of that leads me to my quest to eat at Contos in Lake Stevens. Yes, you called it, the home of Chris Pratt. Super dork, turned super hot, home-town hero, this is not a sentence, and I don't know how to stop or go back... He's married to the beautiful Anna Farris, of Edmonds, WA. Together they make me proud everyday to be a Washingtonian. I know there are celebrities from ever state across the nation, but I value comedy above all else, and these two prove that those gray PNW days leads to funny, funny people.
For some reason I only ever seem to want to try this place on Sunday afternoon, and they aren't open until 4pm on Sundays. However, this past Saturday I was inspired and able to take my whole family. Embrace the damage.
This Toasted Ravioli was an amazing cheese-filled bomb. Yum!
The limited-time Turtle Cheesecake!
The pictures captured here are a mere glimmer of the beautiful meal we enjoyed. My husband got the pastrami-dip. My son ordered their beef gyro. My daughter ordered their kid's Alfredo. Everything served to us was delicious and visually pleasing. I fell as though I sound like I have a problem, and I don't care. If you live in the area, and love classic Italian cuisine, you should run to Contos, pronto.
I can count on one hand the foods I dislike, and I'll typically even eat those. Typically frugal, but I'll pay top dollar for an amazing/unique dining experience. Never passed up a free meal, which has led me to become the #36 ranked eater in Major League Eating. July 4th, 2020 will be my third time competing in the Nathan's Hot Dog eating contest at Coney Island. I've been on ESPN. That's right people, I'm an athlete.
