Tuesday Fun

Hi there! I have lots of fun stuff to share. I have three Modern Day Mayberry's ready to go and have decided to spread them out over the next three days. Just to keep you coming back! So, one a day Tues, Wed and Thursday. Friday I'll be sharing one of Becca's Favorite Things.

Before I forget, yesterday I deleted three names from our Baby Name List (see button on side bar) and added three new ones that we like. Since the names on the list are arranged according to the voter's favorites (favorites at the top), I deleted the top name (Meredith), the bottom name (Flora) and one from the middle (Elsa). We're pretty certain we won't be using any of those anyways. I added the new three at the bottom, feel free to vote on just those if you've already voted. If your computer won't let you, I'm sorry! Sometimes that site keeps you from voting twice, but you can leave me a comment or e-mail me!

As promised, here's Modern Day Mayberry for today...
Anybody heard of Fried Pizza? I sure hadn't. I kind of imagined that they dumped the whole pizza in a vat of hot oil and slopped it onto your plate. Just because it's my job, I called our local airport restaurant (not affiliated with the airport really, it's just next to it), "Perfect Landing" and asked, "What is fried pizza?" They said they deep fry the crust in olive oil, then cover it with the toppings, then bake it. She said it's really good. It sounds good, if you don't mind dying prematurely. Another fun local thing is dipping your pizza in Ranch Dressing. I actually tried this and liked it. Perhaps this isn't unique to our town, or even central Ohio. Do share if you'd heard of either of these practices before! Needless to say, I doubt you see much of either one in Oregon or Washington State (that's where lots of my earthy, organic, granola friends live). See ya tomorrow, unless I eat too much fried pizza, tomorrow is Wednesday afterall...

Well, it depends on the pizza whether you dip it in ranch, french or pizza sauce. When at Pizza Hut you always dip in the marinara. When at Monical's (it's a local chain) you use french dressing. When at home I usually dip in ranch, unless it is a cheese pizza then I dip in french...if we have it. I love dipping my pizza. I do not love dipping any part of my pizza in a big vat of oil though. That is a very interesting idea....one that you guys can keep in Ohio :)

My sisters swear by dipping pizza in ranch dressing. I don't like ranch, so I can't vouch for it's tastiness, but they have been enjoying it for years. :)

As for the fried pizza...I'll have to stay away from that one...I love your comment about dying prematurely. I laughed so hard! :)

I actually have heard of dipping pizza slices in ranch dressing. A friend of mine did it back in high school. Yumm-o!
