Hiya BetterMost friends.




Happy Friday to everyone!!!

;D

I just got the call from mom, dad's blood pressure has dropped, and the doctors are releasing him today.  I'm just waiting for the phone call that they are ready to be picked up.

I'm glad to hear your father is doing well.

Early this year a friend of mine who is only about four or five years older than me had a "mini-stroke." He needed to have a carotid artery cleaned out, and he's completely recovered. I'll be seeing him this evening, as he uses my second ballet ticket.

Hiya BetterMost friends.




It was a busy weekend.  ;D

Friday night I went over to my friends' house for a small dinner party.  Saturday I did some chores and went to a yard sale my friends were having.  Sunday was laundry day.   Today I took mom and dad out to lunch, and then took them to get some chores done.

We made the plans for lunch before dad had his mini-stroke, and he felt well enough to go through with the plans, so we went to Blaze Pizza.

It's fast food pizza, but it's really fresh.   It's made in front of you, you customize it as  you want, and it's set up like a cafeteria line, and you go through 6 stations.

DOUGH/CRUST:  original dough (v) • high-rise dough (v) • cauliflower crust (gf)* • keto crust (gf)*

SAUCES: classic red sauce • spicy red sauce • white cream sauce • garlic pesto sauce

CHEESES: feta • goat • gorgonzola • ovalini mozzarella • parmesan • ricotta • shredded mozzarella • vegan cheese

MEATS: applewood bacon • grilled chicken • italian meatballs • italian sausage • pepperoni • salame • smoked ham • spicy chorizo (vegan)

VEGGIES: artichokes • banana peppers • black olives • cherry tomatoes • chopped garlic • fresh basil • green bell peppers • jalapenos • kalamata olives • mushrooms • oregano • pineapple • red onions • red peppers • roasted garlic • spinach

FINISHES: arugula • balsamic glaze • bbq drizzle • buffalo sauce • pesto • olive oil • ranch


They pop it into a fire oven,  and after a few minutes, your pizza is ready.

Yeah, that sounds really neat--like a Subway for pizza!  :laugh:

That sounds typical American. On my first visit to USA (New York) in 1980 I remember ordering a sandwich and being asked what type of bread. All I knew was white or brown. We do have more choices now perhaps 3 or 4 and I ask for multi-grain. Then on my visit to LA in 1999 my host took me and a Canadian guy who was also staying with him out to breakfast and again I was floored by all the choices of egg. Actually I do not have eggs for breakfast anymore.
It took me a long time to go to Subway because of the choices. I go regularly now but nearly always have the same thing. 6 inch Italian with 3 pepper chicken and avocado, Old English cheese, toasted, spinach or lettuce, tomato, cucumber, carrot, ranch sauce (use to be Italian but no longer available) pepper no salt. I hate having to make decisions re food.

Hiya BetterMost friends.




Hope that everyone has had a great weekend!

This weekend  was the start of figure skating season,  and I spent Saturday at home, watching the Skate America competition.  Feels good to see skating again.

Monday and Tuesday the building is having our annual heat inspections, so I spent today doing laundry and getting the apartment cleaned so it would be presentable  when people came walking through.  It's nice to be going to bed knowing the apartment is clean.

Dad went to his next visit to the doctor, and the doctor is pleased with his progress.  He even cleared my dad to start driving again, as long as it is for short distances around town.

Glad your Dad is improving.
Thankful I do not have any home inspections. I am up to date with the washing, we have had a lot of wet weather and did the ironing today. My sister is visiting at the end of November and some friends (actually students from my class of '73) a few days after my sister leaves so one thorough clean will cover both. Still 5 weeks away but I know it will creep up on me quickly.
