What’s better than…..

Peeps, get your minds out of the gutter.

i am here to talk about food, yep, food. And not just any food, but hubs BBQ variety.

now I know you all are thinking ribs, steaks, or smoked meatloaf, but you would be wrong.

Today we are here to make you hungry.

So, what’s better than a Weber grill? Hmmmm? Any guesses?

A Weber grill that cooks, you guessed it, perfect pizza.

Yes, yes, that’s right , a pizza cooker. Num num I bet you’re saying….so we have worked with the homemade dough,slathered on some fine Italian sauce, some mozzarella , Margherita fine pepperoni, some lovely Penzey spices, and some awesome chunks of hunk a hunk a burning wood. Yeah baby, real live fire….hint, please do not try this indoors, that is another story completely. So you take your tasty Za and viola:

Okay, now guess what? What’s even better than that you may ask? How about TWO pizzas?

And yes, on this same grill we then cooked a fine concoction of , and I know you’re thinking out there, REALLY? But yes, really, grapes, smoked blue cheese,rosemary,olive oil, garlic, blend of hard Italian cheeses and enough lip smacking love to make a school boy blush.

Yep, threw that sucker on there too. Ten minutes per pie, rotate, rotate, are you getting dizzy yet? Rotate some more and smell that goodness as it fills the neighborhood with awesomeness…too bad no neighbors live close enough to “drop in just to see what’s cooking”. And that my friends is what you call a proper dinner for two plus lunch the next day. Better than a pizzeria and one quarter the price.

and I bet you thought I was gonna talk about sex or something. Nah, this is even better…well, almost, but oooh it’s so good!

Okay,go away now, I don’t like to talk with my mouth full and no I’m not sharing!

peace and love and married to the awesome Chef who buys these nifty things so that I can actually say I helped to cook dinner for once or twice. Ten years in a pizzeria did teach me how to stretch a pretty pie.

 

Queen of goodness and light

Are you out there somewhere

in your faraway land

where stars twinkle at night

and fairy tale wishes float on air.

Are you the princess of the manor

or the queen of the stately castle

all alight for the party of life,

belle of the ball,

masked and beautiful.

Are you the woman who shops at the stands

on streets of vendors, fruit and vegetables

and fresh bread steaming from corner store doors.

Are you the magical witch casting spells

of loveliness on all you meet

and those who strain to hear

your wise words and laughter.

Are you the girl with the dreams of good things,

of deserts and oceans and sand between toes,

are you the whimsical child who sends love filled

With smiles and joy

the gracious soul that gives this world light,

the lantern, the keeper of the moon

the goddess of all that is beautiful.

Into the blue

Lines on the sky

white stripes

no song intended

driving in my thoughts

crossing over one to another

can’t make up my mind

which lane to try

upward into

miles high

infinite streams

take me away.

Blue world umbrella

blocking the sun

the stingy miser of clouds

playing hide and seek

with my warmth,

search for sunshine

for on my shoulders I do get quite happy,

song intended

and the clock winds down

the meager minutes left in this day

open the universal wallet

and lend me some more,

more sun,

more moments to sit and be,

penny on the ground,

shining back at me,

How much will this get me I wonder?
