Gag me with a California Pizza

My wife's first day back at work in eight years didn't go off without a hitch. As mentioned previously, her car was backed into in the school parking lot. I, too have had my trials this morning, and they started early.

Having made my lunch, she placed it on my backpack, as I never go anywhere without it.

Except, apparently, this morning.

No worries - I'll go home for lunch. Yes, I live that close. But I was too busy! You see, my dear drax0r is offsite today. So, like the proverbial beaver, busy I stay. Too busy in fact, to leave - later than I normally would for lunch, and I'm leaving for the day at my new time of 1500. New schedules are very often disagreeable.

Enter the onsite cafeteria. I snatch a Monster quick-like from the shelf and look at the empty can in my hand. A belch confirms I've already consumed it. Awesome.


The last couple of months has given rise to an 'ethnic' bar here. And I don't mean Mexican food.

"Probably the biggest trend we're seeing with corporate events is what I call 'international grazing'-serving a bite of two or three little things, rather than a big plate of chicken or beef," says Bill Garrett, director of catering and special events for SMG Catering, food purveyors for the Long Beach (Calif.) Aquarium of the Pacific and the Long Beach Convention and Entertainment Center.

Things like, tikka masala, siga wot, and lots and lots of muffuletta and falafel.

I even asked them once, "Are you finding that this is successful?" Indicating of course that I did not. Regardless, if anything "good" came from this (the list of annoyances are long and distinguished) its what I like to call the "California Pizza." Thin crust, and lots of vegetables. Usually with an expensive cheese. Fan-freaking-tastic! Mushroom pizza, spinach pizza, squash pizza - always with freshly grilled veggies. And the mix & match are the best! Spinach with mushrooms, squash with mushrooms, today looked like mushrooms with mushrooms! Yummy!

Alas, it was not.

It was liver pizza.

Now, I like liver. With onions. And gravy.

Not on my pizza.

I think I'm going to be sick.

I threw up in my mouth when I read this post. Rachel does not approve of liver pizza.

NO ONE APPROVES OF LIVER PIZZA. Just saying it is making me sick all over again.

I shudder at the thought.

I love liver and onions with gravy! Love it!

Definitely NOT on pizza though.

Whomever thought of that should be forced to eat a dozen of them - at one sitting.

Re: Nasty

I choked down my one. Just thinking about it makes me queasy.

Re: Nasty

I had to eat it. I was hungry.

Re: Nasty

I don't think I'd ever be that hungry!

I would have stopped at the Monster. :)

Re: Nasty

Oh let me tell you about that Monster! It was so crisp and clear and cold. It shot through me like a blast from an ocean wave, deep and shocking, leaving me shivering as the salty water evaporated off my skin on a sunny day in Hawaii where the ladies really are topless and I tried to capture that with my Super 8mm video camera which looked rather bulky compared to all the new ones the Japanese were carting around and I wondered, "Why are so many Japaense here anyway" but then I called phototgoot's dad and he explained it to me.

Yeah, like that.

Liver on pizza?!!!

It tasted a lot worse than it sounds.

I should have made liver pizza this weekend. I hope there's nothing in the Geneva Convention about serving guests such atrocities.

Prisoners of war shall, as far as possible, be associated with the preparation of their meals; they may be employed for that purpose in the kitchens. Furthermore, they shall be given the means of preparing, themselves, the additional food in their possession.

Now that's a pizza I can get behind! I'm already salivating.

Elizabeth had it at the Iron Hill Brew Pub one night and after demanded I try and make it from scratch at home. I was surprised at how well it turned out.
