Cooking Directions

14 years seems like yesterday. Some thoughts brought on while making lunch on a Saturday afternoon; or remembering Grandma. 

Cooking Directions

Preheat oven to 400

Remove pizza from overwrap and cardboard

Rearrange pepperoni so everyone will have an equal amount

Place pizza directly on center oven rack position

Gather together

ceramic bowl with blue-and-white faux-ancient Greek pattern

manual hand mixer

cold milk

chocolate Jell-O pudding mix

Mix milk & chocolate powder in bowl

Place in refrigerator to chill

Toss together

lettuce

cucumbers

carrots

cherry tomatoes

(onions optional)

Long for the day

over a decade ago

planting flowers

hungry for pizza and Scrabble

neither of which would ever come

cut off by the inevitable

Curse the memory of that day

and the terrible emptiness of the one after

and after and after and after and after and after

Bake pizza for 19 to 21 minutes or until cheese is melted and edges are golden brown
