Its a pizza day around here and if you know me like I know me then you know that I do things until we are absolutely sick of it, I dont even want to mention the pumpkin that we will be seeing in all its transmogrifications in the days to come - try pumpkin gnocchi on for size or even just plain old pumpkin pasta with a you name it sauce, how about a pumpkin vinagrette? Whew long sentence. Ok, pizza, basic, simple, tasty. A few cups of flour, a couple teaspoons of yeast a little sugar a little salt a touch of olive oil and some water - could it be more easy? Top it as you like eat it with your hands. How do you like your pizza?
Have I forgotten to tell you that we (I say we loosely since I am the only 'chubby' one around here) are at a healthy weight, we exercise and our collective blood pressure and cholesterol is where it should be. Healthy eating can seem like 'indulging' but thats why its 'healthy' eating. There is a good balance of greens to gross and we only eat baked or homemade sweets - no candy, no milk, minimal sugar, which means no sodas - we use seltzer and fruit juice. There is cheese but the enzymes make a difference and then its only good cheese no processed or otherwise - you know- cheese like your ancestors made. Its important to eat right, sleep right and drink tons of water, trust me smart food is a smart choice.
To use a phrase made popular every four years by the republican party 'energize the base' - use good food to 'energize the base' -
Let there be no mistake, I am not one of those voters that complains about the choices - I vote and I vote with pride. I am proud of each and every candidate that is nominated to run. I dont run around wishing it was someone else. I am not one of those nay sayers or whatevers that want Nader or some other flunky that couldnt possibly govern. Those people need to re-evaluate their priorities. Undecided is equal to pretty damn dumb. Voting for those outskirt candidates is wasting your good vote.
If you dont like it then run yourself.
This is my new favorite foodie site.
Savor the moment and the victory,
victory tastes so sweet,I like the flavor.
