Anyhow, said friends canceled around noon, and that left me with no plans or thawed out food to make for dinner! What to do? Perhaps a better person than I would have dashed to the store on the way home, and whipped up something lovely for my family and slapped it on the table just at the appropriate time.
Instead I started shopping mentally for pizza. This eventually brought up an interesting and entertaining conversation at work. It seems that the general consensus is that while mostly everyone likes pizza, most people are rather picky about it!
I don't think I'm as picky about the crust as some people, but I certainly think the amount and flavor of the sauce can make or break a pizza. If the sauce is too bitterly tomato-y or spread too thickly, count me out! Some people surveyed prefer only thin crust, others thick, and one person questioned even said he is a fan of the deep dish above anything else. That is mostly like eating a dough-ball, but whatever. Men are meat eaters, with the sausage, pepperoni, and bacon combo topping the list of favs, and then there are those like me, who prefer vegetarian style. One place is currently offering a "drizzle" of your favorite sauce on the top of the pizza, and that seems to be a big win for the buffalo wing sauce lovers. There were so many choices to talk about, so many different pizza parlors or pizza delivery places to consider! What to do? What to do?
So....we went to Chipotle!
