Our thoughts on food and cooking
In seventeen beats. 


ultimate dad joke:
eat a slice on the way home,
claim it was "a thief!!!"


the first word i learned to spell
is also the best.

Wood-fired? I am sold.<br />Bubbly crust in 3 minutes,<br />bellyful in 5.

WOW!! Really? How?

haha yes. I had 2 slices of Funghi left over, so yesterday, I preheated my oven on broil, then threw the slices on the stone, then turned the oven off, then forgot about everything, then a half hour later I was like "hmmm, what is that toasty mushroomy smell?" The crust was singed, but the body of the slice was like the best cracker I ever ate.

A lesson from dad:<br />A cold slice of pizza is<br />Breakfast perfection.
