My cousin decided that she was going to stay in last night, so Dustin and I were on our own for dinner. I had to go to the craft store anyway, so we stopped for dinner at Union Square Restaurant in Newburgh. They have an eclectic menu with a little of everything, including brick oven pizza, salads, Mexican, seafood, and all sorts of burgers, including turkey and veggie. We love their pizza, the crust is always crispy and flavorful. In other words, nearly perfect. It might have a bit too much cornmeal, but other than that it’s superb.
Dustin was beaming with joy over the spring-like weather we’ve been experiencing.
But then we overheard someone mention that we’re getting snow on Monday and Dustin went into a deep depression.
I ordered a diet Pepsi and a water, sometimes I just want a little flavored fizz.
Glad I also ordered water ’cause the bubbles were few and far between in the diet Pep. I hate weak carbonation, defeats the purpose! lol
I started with their chopped salad while we waited for our pizza. I ordered the small, but I think it’s actually quite big!
After putting some on my salad plate…
…it looks like it barely made a dent!
Their house balsamic is amazing. They always give such a large portion of it, but really only a few drops are needed for the flavor.

We ordered 2 small pizzas. Dustin almost always wants pepperoni and I’m not really a pepperoni girl. I like it like maybe once a year, probably less than that.
I went with the shrimp and pesto pizza with fresh mozzarella cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, and fresh basil.
Fabulous!!! Dustin’s pepperoni pizza couldn’t hold a candle to that beauty!! Everything about it was amazing. The perfectly crisp crust, the savory pesto, the sweet hints of sun-dried tomato, and the kiss of fresh basil all complimenting the delicious pieces of shrimp. I had 2 slices and brought the rest home for my mom. Yum! We also brought a piece of cheesecake home to share for dessert. SO GOOD!
My cousin ended up stopping by late last night anyway. And of course she was hungry when she got here. I’m sure she regretted missing out on our yummy dinner.
Dustin’s still working on my light box, can’t wait for it to be done! I also can’t wait for Daylight Saving—daylight until 9:00 pm? Yes, please! Not sure what else we’re doing this weekend. I have to start organizing my mom’s birthday party for next Friday. Still haven’t decided on a cake or a menu. I should probably do that in the next couple of days.
Question: Do you and your SO or other family/friends like different toppings on pizza? We often compromise on just plain cheese, but truthfully, he wants meats and I want veggies, lol. So we end up doing half and half or ordering separately. Pepperoni grease contaminates everything! LOL
