A To Z Challenge: 'Za
April 30th...the end of my second A to Z Challenge and finally a break. I can't say I will or won't do this again next year but I can tell you I happy to have this over. As you can see above I gave you a twofer on the Star Wars characters, the reason for the second one was an inside joke, it's Ziro the Hutt and very flamboyant Hutt. If you watch the Clone Wars movie you will see.
Alright for the letter Z I am going non-traditional and using an abbreviation....'za, as in pizza. Is there a more perfect food in the world, scratch that, the galaxy? Whoever invented the pizza was a freaking genius. Wait, I just Googled it and it turns out that the genius is Raffaele Esposito of Naples. He invented the modern pizza.
Pizza is in fact the perfect food for every human being no matter what ridiculous problems you have. You can get gluten free, vegetarian, tomato free, whatever, it doesn't matter. Think about it, you take dough, which in itself is a basic mixture and put whatever toppings you want on it. You can make your own creation!
Let's say you have a hankering for breakfast but don't feel like frying everything up. Make a pizza out of it, scramble some eggs, throw some potatoes and bacon on there an viola, you've got breakfast pizza. In the mood for buffalo wings but don't want to make a mess? Buffalo chicken pizza! How about a cheeseburger? hamburg, ketchup, cheese, mustard and other toppings. All of this on a simple hold in your hand food.
You don't even need a plate or silverware. Slice it up and grab a piece! Forget the napkin and just use your sleeve. The best part about pizza, no matter what kind you have, is it always tastes better cold the next day. The flavors mix and mingle like some sort of orgy and it is fantastic.
If you'll excuse me I am going to make a pizza and celebrate the ending of the A to Z Challenge.
