Pizza Month: the most wonderful time of year.

As spoken by Mrs. Elizabeth Bevington-Seawright, and as agreed to by me.

For the third year in a row, October will find me eating pizza every day (or nearly every day), as per a combination of National Pizza Month and friend traditions (however East to West coast spread those friendships may be).

First pizza was CPK in Palo Alto with the Gallaghers. Second pizza was at a cheap, nondescript hole near Abby's San Francisco abode. Third pizza was sadly nonexistent as it was Sunday and I was a. unprepared and b. on the road for a majority of the day/night. Fourth, fifth, and sixth pizzas were homemade in Rich family fashion: fresh mozzarella, fresh basil, spinach, tomatos, sauteed onions and garlic, oregeno, already prepared dough, etc. When in line at Trader Joe's purchasing said items, the cashier smiled and asked, "Pizza night?" to which I smiled and answered, "Pizza month." He laughed, but I wasn't joking.




Seventh pizza will likely be from one of the places recommended to me by a new friend, by way of this list:

Happy Pizza!!

I love the line "He laughed, but I wasn't joking." This happens to me often. Sometimes wonderful things are truths.

Yey for pizza month!!! last night i made tortilla hummus (homemade) pizza. It was oven toasted tortillas, topped off with broiled cherry tomato halves, parsley flakes, light sprinkle of nutritional yeast, and thinly sliced cucumbers. yum! The parsley, nutritional yeast and cucumbers went on as finishing touches. I thought it would be weird for the cucumber to be cooked.

PS February is National Pancake Month. I'm thinking I need in on that celebration.

I was feeling glum that I can't enjoy a delicious pizza in your honor, since I'm on a healthy eating - no delicous white pizza dough eating kind of diet these days... until I read Evelyn's post. Hmm, hummus/tortilla pizza. I think I know what we're going to do today Ferb.
*Also...bing! Why don't you ever comment on my blog? Too good for your biggest sister? Eh? We'll have to see about that...

I could be into Pancake Month too. Bring on February.

Cumo, Charity only leaves comments on mine because I tell her to. Pathetic, but true.
