Good Morning Guys and Dolls:
A cloudy day beckons you all from Sunny Florida. The forecast for today calls for storms with chances of hail and tornados and then a second wave will be approaching with more of the same so everyone down here and on vacation, take heed.
Last night I was thinking what I wanted for lunch today. I have a nice frozen meatloaf dinner in the freezer at work all ready but did I want soup instead. Not a problem I’ll take a can of soup with me just in case problem solved. A nice salad to go along with my main meal would be an added treat. Zipped in the kitchen, a fresh bag of lettuce was found in the refrigerator, a tomato was sliced, a little salt added with some fresh ground pepper and I now had a salad to take along. Roe suggested taking along some fresh cherries as a dessert, why not. Driving to work this morning and being three quarters of the way there I forgot the salad and cherries. I was not a very happy traveler from that point on as I could taste that salad with that Italian dressing I was planning to pour on. Oh well I guess it will have to be eaten at dinner instead.
As long as we are on food, last Friday Roe not having a pizza in a long time thought we would try a pie from Papa John’s. Roe recently being released from the hospital and me not wanting to drive during rush hour downtown to Al’s or my other favorite true Italian pizza joint went along with the idea. Arriving home from work the pizzas were sitting on top of the stove, a regular cheese and a pepperoni for me. I spied a look on Roe’s face it was that “THE PIZZA’S ARE NOT THAT GOOD LOOK”. I waited until I was nice and relaxed to give the pepperoni a try and found it tasteless, too much pepperoni, no flavor to the sauce or cheese and the dough was dry not even one drip of grease or oil. Needless to say Roe sent her complaint in via e-mail to old Papa John himself. Results to follow. Please we need a true tomato pie joint down here.
We have located a hotdog place in downtown here called Willy’s Wieners and they have that Famous Chicago Style Dog I’ve always wanted to try along with that Italian Beef Sandwich with Spicy Giardniera. I’ll be making a trip soon with the full report to follow.
Have a great day Speakies and be good.
