Is this a new thing? – We used to get pizza at a local upscale grocery store. It was the old fashioned kind – neither thin nor thick but an uneven wavy crust where parts of it would rise higher. It had the yeasty smell of fresh bread from the oven. We haven’t been there for a while. I stopped on Friday. All the pizzas were smaller and had burn marks on them. Some were on the crust and some had dark brown marks on the cheese. I hate burnt cheese. This seems to be a new style. I liked the old style better.
Speaking of pizza – I was at a luncheon and ordered a small personal pizza. It was simple – tomatoes, basil and buffalo mozzarella. The cheese was bad. I couldn’t eat it. I’m starting to think the universe is trying to split me up from my beloved pizza!
More food – At the luncheon, we were told that we couldn’t get any salads. They weren’t selling any at all because of the E. coli scare. Chocolate has never been recalled! There is a message there.
How kind – A few years ago I had hand surgery done by our local ortho group. It’s a big box group with many doctors all having specialties. They have a hand department with several hand only doctors along with a specialty rehab for hands. I was impressed by it all. One of the docs goes to third world countries and performs free hand surgery every year. This year they put aside two Saturdays to see and evaluate people without insurance. They will follow up with free surgery in January. I love to see docs doing this for people. No one knows how important hands are until you have an injury.
So how was your week?
