Hey guys! Today is another Saturday with my lovely boyfriend, Andrea, and that means it's another pig out and feeding program day! Since we didn't sleep well last night we again set out late for brunch at Franco Manca since they have been sending me Halloween promotions and I wanted to try it. Franco Manca is actually the first place we ate at when I first moved in Bath.

Franco Manca is widely known for their freshly made sourdough pizza made on site daily and also for their affordability. They dubbed themselves as "the slow fast food" as they believed that good food takes time. They had their first branch in Brixton Market back in 2008 and ever since then spread all around UK. They pride themselves for slow-rising sourdough pizza with properly sourced ingredients from small suppliers. So when you eat at Franco Manca, you feel good knowing you are supporting small farms in the locality.

No logo cider and lager & our olives and pesto dip.

So for starters we ordered, Nocellara green olives and the cured meat sharing platter served with sourdough bread, Franco and Cantarelli Grana and wild rocket. For drinks, I had the no logo cider, while Andre had the no logo lager.

Cured meat platter ❤️

Then we ordered one pizza each, which I would say was quite too greedy of us. I got the Halloween meat special of course which was made of mortadella bologna IGP, ricotta and spicy nduja honey base, Colston Basset stilton, butternut squash, and watercress. They didn't put tomato base on it as I suppose they wanted it orange for Halloween 🎃. Since I love strong cheeses, I enjoyed this interesting pizza very much. But it was not Andre approved as he does not like strong cheese. Oh well that means all mine!

Halloween Meat Special! Boo! 👻

Andre ordered Pizzaiolo's favourite which was yellow fin tuna, organic tomato, wilted spinach, Kalmata black olives, capers from Salina, shallots, and a creamy tuna dressing. It is his favourite pizza there. Which I personally loved too. Thankfully he gave me a slice. Loving is indeed sharing! By the end of the meal we were so full but we still wanted dessert so we paid our bill and headed to Heavenly Desserts which is another article perhaps as I am talking too much again.

Yellow fin tuna pizza ❤️

I have no idea 😅😅😅 My approach is - earn first, find a way to withdraw when I'm mentally ready 😁

I think you can send it to Binance and from there it's easy to withdraw through P2P, but truth be told, I never withdew any of my crypto back to bank account. I just want to grow my portfolio to a nice size, especially while we're still in bear market

Well I do not have much there but I do just post once in a while and try to keep as much as I can and withdraw when it is a sizeable amount.

That's best way I think. Staking as HP is also good, cause it increase the power of your upvote, so you can get more curation rewards this way 💙

Does it count when it is just on the savings?

Nope, I don't think it does sis. Has to be Hive and staked. Good news is that Hive is very cheap now, so if you exchange HBD to Hive now and stake (on power up day best) your vote will have more power AND you can later unstake it when you need it and you'll have more HBD if you time it well. Not a financial advice though 😉🤣😁

No worries. You can always hit me up on Telegram if you have any questions. I'm still a newbie there too. I've only taken Hive seriously since end of October, when I was in Poland, so I learn as I go :)
