Norma,You really do make professional looking pizzas. Just faaantastic! It's a shame they have you hidden away back in your area of the Market.
Thanks Bob! I just talked to the market manager again yesterday and really don't think I will be able to get that other stand. Norma
Well, I could come up there an have a nice 'lil chat with that man if you like Norma. All it will cost you is the alky haul I drink before meeting with him! We'll get you anything you want 'lil darl'in.
Bob,Thanks for the offer, but I think I want to stay in good terms with the market management. I didn't need any alky haul and said my piece yesterday. Norma
Good for you Norma; I'm glad you did that. I'm sure your way was much better than mine.
Bob,I have always said my piece at market. That started many years ago when our caramel popcorn stand was only 8' and the stand next to us (about 22') became vacant and we wanted to move into it. Market didn't want us to be able to move into that vacant stand even though we were the oldest standholder at market (since 1928). Finally market management came around, but that took a lot of talking. I had worked full-time at RCA at that time and my last husband also worked a full-time job as a butcher. The same thing happened when we wanted to be able to sell brittles which my husbands parents did do for many years and also again when we wanted to sell cotton candy. I don't think saying my piece this time will do any good, but at least I felt better that I did do that.Norma
I hear you Norma. Like a lot of things; as I'm sure you know full well, there is probably some politics or money involved there and that is a real shame when they treat good, honest, long standing reliable folks second best. I have a friend who is a police detective with a young family and this guy can sing real good Norma. A couple elders at his Church are complaining to the Pastor that he is getting too many special solo spots. He sings like an Angel but their kids don't....so now he catches the flack.
Norma,Crust is beautiful. Looks better than Mack's.
Norma,I have had a couple of Mack's pies, since the opening. They are always a little inconsistent in the spring, but when they are making hundreds of pies a day - the quality kicks in.
If anyone is interested, this works well for slicing big blocks of cheese.Norma
Now that's a hunk-a-hunk O cheese Norma; Cheddar?
Bob, that block of cheese almost weighed 45 lbs. Yes, it is mild cheddar, but it melts like mozzarella, grates like mozzarella, is soft like mozzarella, but has a little more taste than mozzarella. If I would give you a piece to eat plain I think you would think it was a good mozzarella. Norma
I think I would probably say: "Norma, that's Grande cheese, how'd you get it so cheap!?"
Bob,I have tried Grande cheese and used it exclusively when I first starting making pizzas. I purchased Grande from a pizzeria near me. I know other members would have different opinions than I do, but for me the mild cheddar has more taste and bakes about the same as Grande. I did get the Grande in loaves and grated it myself for a long while, until I found other mozzarellas that I liked better than Grande.The mild cheddar I now use did go up .29 a lb. since I started using it though. Cheeses do go up and down a lot in prices.Norma
