pizza cone

I’m not sure if this is right or wrong……But it’s sure, uh, well, different….Can you really muck around with something as classically wonderful and delightfully pure as Italian pizza and turn it into, well, a hot pocket type burrito thingy in an ice cream cone?

I mean, what would the Italians say?

Oh, what’s that? Yup. This cone shaped creation actually originated in Italy! It seems the concept of Pizza da Passeggio, walkaway pizza, started brewing 6 years ago with an little idea that has blossomed into a successful company in Italy.

So, of course you’ve heard of the Tom Cruise Scientology video by now……Yes?

Well, here is Jerry O’Connell’s silly parody on that famous video.

Jerry makes me giggle.

Just in case you missed it, here’s the Tom Cruise video

Fattie had dashed over to grab the new truck and trailer (in order to store all the paraphernalia we were going to purchase for the remodel we needed both vehicles. BTW, this remodel seems to have taken over my life the last few weeks – but uh-uhmmm, I guess that’s for another time….) and as he honked for me, I reached for my Louis Vuitton and my puffy North Face.

Since I knew we were going to be in the rig for the better part of an hour, I spun around, turned back, and quickly snagged a cookbook off the shelf for some dinner inspiration.

I ended up with Jamie Oliver, The Naked Chef Takes Off.

It’s official. I now live in the country.

It’s truly gorgeous here. We’re sitting in-between the 4th & 5th holes on a luscious green and manicured golf course overlooking a tranquil lake. It’s like living in the middle of a resort.

However, as beautiful and peaceful as it is, coming from a busy metropolitan city I wasn’t exactly prepared for the specific shoe demands and foot requirements of these brilliant boondocks. My 300+ pair of high heels have barely been unpacked and strapped on my feet more than once or twice. Hard to believe that’s all that used to adorn my little piggies.

Uh, uh………What was I saying? Oh yeah, my ill-prepared yet over stuffed shoe closet. I’m talking about rubber boots. Galoshes. Wellies. Gumboots. Rain boots. Oxfords. Overshoes. Waders. Whatever you fancy calling them. I need ’em.

Ever burned a copy of a friends CD? Maybe a song or two or even the whole stinking thing? It’s called music piracy and loads of people do it everyday.

Music piracy is any form of unauthorized duplication and/or distribution of music including downloading, file sharing, and CD-burning.

So? Wanna make nice nice?

I adore the LocalHarvest website and the concept behind it….

LocalHarvest was founded in 1988 and they say they are America’s #1 organic and local food website. By maintaining a definitive and reliable “living” public nationwide directory of small farms, farmers markets, and other local food sources they have become the main informational resource for the buy local movement and the top place on the internet where people find information on direct marketing family farms.

LocalHarvest is located in Santa Cruz, California, and was founded by Guillermo Payet, a software engineer and activist dedicated to generating positive social change through the internet.

Check out their revealing US map where you can quickly locate farmers’ markets, family farms, and other sources of sustainably grown food in your area, where you can buy produce, grass-fed meats, and many other goodies.

How cool would it be to subscribe for a weekly delivery of locally grown fresh organic produce! I mean who wouldn’t love that? Well, that’s precisely what you can do.
