As some of you may know Ms. Goofy and I have started a new journey in life. We have both officially retired from our  places of employment. Ms. Goofy worked 35 years and I 32 years in our respective jobs. Ms. Goofy is learning to sleep in and I have stopped shaving. We now have a lot of time on our hands for our hobbies and hope to share them with you.
   Pizza was on the menu tonight. The fresh peas and asparagus was harvested from the Richmond's farmers market. The dough was proofed with Zoomie sour dough starter and fortified with whole wheat flour from 'Green String' farms. Five different cheeses from Ms. Goofy's cheese vault was the yummy glue for the peas and asparagus. Home made sauce completed this 'Spring' pie. A kiss of fire from our wood burning oven made this a wonderful meal. Peas pass the asparagus.

Cheese vault! Hahahaha! Very good, and a damn fine looking pizza.

Zoomie said...

Congratulations on your retirements and enjoy the slower pace! Looks like you are off to a good start with this pizza! I will look forward to more stories as your beard gets longer and longer.

Dr. Biggles, Thankyou so much. We hope you can make it to a BBQ competition this summer.

cookiecrumb, The vault is full at the moment. Jack Benny would be proud.

Zoomie, It has not settled in yet. Pretty soon I may be smoking cigarettes and wathing Captain Kangaroo.

First, congratulations on your escape...errr....retirement!

Second, that pizza sounds wicked good. I love your pizza oven. If it disappears one day, I swear I didn't do it.

With a deck of 51. You are such a hood.

Chilebrown said...

Chris, Goodluck! It took four people to get it in the backyard and if Ms. Goofy hears you,you will have to wrestle her.

cookiecrumb, I was a wee lad when this song was top of the charts. I really was watching the Captain minus the cigarettes.

You got that pizza downtown! I'm still in the novice stage.
