CPAP

Bob,

Would you be so kind as to tell me what CPAP stands for? I did a Google search and could not find a meaning that makes sense in the context of your post.

I'm curious. I'm sure this has already been answered in many places around here, but it hasn't registered in my brain yet. I know you and Norma are friends, but I don't know much else. Do you work with Norma, or are you just pizza pals? Or do you have any kind of business of your own?

Norma and I are pizza pals, though I do work with her at her one day a week farmers market pizza stand. My friend Bob and I are soon to be starting our own mobile pizza biz, X-Stream Cuisine, which is a wfo in a '67 Airstream camper.

Ryan,

I donít want to take Kellyís thread off-topic either, but Steve and I have know each other for about a little over 2 years.  Steve invites me to bakes in his home WFO and also to other events (that he does with BBQ grill mod and church events).  I am also friends with Steveís friend Bob.  Steve does help me at market every week.  We are always talking about different pizzas.  Steve has helped me a lot on my pizza making journey.  I met Steve here on the forum.  We are pizza pals.

Not a problem. The Airstream is too good not to post pics of!

It sucks working with wet dough.

On the way to the market early yesterday, the large Igloo cooler full of dough bungeed to the cargo basket on top of my car when.....an absolute torrent of rain started falling from the sky. Heavy enough where it was extremely difficult to drive.

By the time I got to the market, got the step ladder, scrambled to get the cooler down from the roof and quickly put it under the already erected tent of a neighboring vendor, the damage was done. I was literally soaked all the way to my boxers and it was disheartening to see that the cooler is not waterproof. Lots of water in the cooler, some of it had snuck into the Cambro trays.

The rain got even harder and lasted like that for a full 40 minutes. By that point the humidity and moisture made every tray of dough very wet. Water all over the dough balls and water all over the Greek marble tiles I use to make pies on.

Struggled to make pies all day. Skins were sticking quite badly to everything. Lots of bench flour required, as well as a wing and a prayer. Did manage to put out some pizzas though, so the day was not a total loss. And then the Friday of mixing I knocked my mason jar of Ischia on the ground and broke it. D'oh (or dough!). First time using cake yeast in many years. An interesting weekend for sure.

Oh it's up.

And as I was packing up a big gust of wind caught hold of my pop-up canopy, lifted it and took it for a 15 foot ride. It bent upon landing and is unusable. A cheapie for $30 on Craiglist, but also the replacement for a very nice, much more expensive pop-up tent which suffered the very same fate. Just as I took off the 10 pound weights I hang from the corners to ward off the wind a gust just snuck up and gave it the 'ole Mary Poppins.

Good times! --K

Yeah, I tried to repair one of those damn crazy tents once after a big blowover.....the way they crisscross together will aggravate you sooo bad it becomes a joy to finally jus smash the whole thing up into a wad of aluminum.   ;)

I once had to chase my tent (my house) through Santa Ana winds in southern California (in the middle of a horrible migraine). I went running after it, thinking I was never gonna see the tent again, but thankfully it was stopped by a tall chainlink fence beside/below I-15, about a quarter of a mile from where I had been trying to set up.

I'm officially finished at the Farmer's Market.

It's unfortunate, but some developments at work have really cut down on the time I have available during the week. I still have a family (wanna see my 16 month old from time to time!) and another more important pizza adventure I need to devote a lot more time to. Something had to give. I wish there was time to do it all, but right now there is not.

I'll be using the LBE for a few one off events all centered in a particular Baltimore neighborhood. I am going to be taking the set-up to the new local brewery one Saturday in late September to cook pizzas for the staff and then leave. I plan to do the same for the staff at the neighborhood wine and beer store and for many of the owners and staff of the very small clothing and wares stores in the hood as well.

More pics from those days and other news later. Thanks everyone. --K  :)

Me too, Kelly.  It was great to meet you, and I hope to see you again sometime.  I really enjoyed the companionship of a like-minded pizza enthusiast ("nut") and I will be looking forward to more chances to get together in the future.

I'd rather eat one good meal a day than 3 squares of garbage.
