Crunchy, Chewy, Yummy... PAD 1022

Tonight we got a large veggie pizza from a local place called La Strada. We usually hit them for Broasted Chicken but tonight was a Friday pizza night. I am also a big fan of straight up Pepperoni Pizza but Allison won out with the vote for veggie. I think I am a veggie pizza convert. This was delicious! I was too hungry to go back and make sure that part of the was totally in focus.

I played around with the cropping of this photo. I decided on a tighter crop instead of a larger version. I have got to start getting home before the light is gone for the day. Tomorrow I’ll get outside and use natural light.

Today was a big day at work. Each year we have a large kickoff meeting. Last year I was very involved it in the process and created many videos for the event. This year I was not involved and it was interesting to be sitting in the audience rather than standing behind the stage. I enjoy being behind the scenes.

My favorite part of the day was the fact that my good friend Peter won a very important award. He is one of the most humble people that I know and he was truly stunned to win the prize. Since I have been in marketing Peter has been nominated for this award and this year he got it. You have to understand that Peter is one of the nicest guys but things seem to happen to him that are not exactly fortuitous. He just got back from a very difficult traveling adventure and he had his home broken into this year, so the events leading up to his winning this prize were just so Peter. Each year there is a list of top 10 demonstrators. The presentation shows the top 9 and then the winner is on the next page of the presentation. Someone is to explain the award and why we give it each year. Then they reveal who the winner is. However someone hit the advance button accidentally so the whole crowd saw who won. With the cat out of the bag everyone broke into very enthusiastic applause. It was well deserved for the amazing effort that Peter gives each and every day. I am so proud of my mentor and friend.

Peter is an example that being a hard worker, a team player, a kind person and nice to people pays off.

Speaking of those themes, I reviewed a new book on Read To Me, Dad. I’ve got to update that blog much more often. I posted a couple of YouTube videos of some Eddie Izzard bits. And as a coincidence Peter was the one who introduced me to Eddie Izzard.

    Oh YES! That is a pretty good-looking slice of pizza. Makes me wish I didn’t just have a bag of microwave popcorn for dinner. Waaah!

    Thanks Kango Mom,
    I’ve had those microwave pizza for dinner nights. It happens.

    The picture looks yummy even in 2D. I can almost taste it. Now I have a craving for a slice. Congratulations to Peter. It’s nice of your company to hand out awards to hard workers.

    That photo is perfect! It’s already a tease, but it adds more tease only being able to really see part of it.. yumm! That is fabulous for Peter, I believe in working hard, and playing nice, he sounds like he is that type of guy. :)

    I used my real name this time…

    I think the lack of focus enhances the foreground which is the best part. The crust is the first and only thing to focus on here… It looks amazing.

    “The mushroom lingering in the background is the second thing you see but you end up focusing back on that crust”

    *Wants to raid pantry*

    Thanks AV. I still have two slices for lunch today. And I am looking forward to them. Peter certainly deserves it.

  7. Drew says:

    Chica,
    You hit the nail on the head with Peter. He certainly is an exemplary person who plays fair and works incredibly hard.

    I like the way you describe the pizza, it is a teaser slice. Makes me hungry again.

  8. Drew says:

    Thanks Cecilia,
    I appreciate that you used your real name and that you even came back to comment. I get so many junk comments from spam that when I reject or edit comments. Most times I never hear back from people so I know that they were just hear for a link, but knowing that you are a real person interested in coming here to comment is great. Welcome, and I am glad to have you come by to comment.

    There are two pieces left for your pantry raid. Also I like how you described the photo and how your eyes focus on the image and the crust in the foreground.

    OMG!

    Drew, sorry i didnt notice it was you who bought ad from me. My God, you changed your entrecard card. Sorry again. and you ask about my other entre, I dont use that one. Its actually the first one that I use but i change it cause I forgot my password in that email.

    sorry again. and about that photo, it made me hungry. haha really.

  10. Drew says:

    Yeah, I thought I would shake things up a bit. I wanted a new one that would stand out. I’m into change and reinventing myself rather than using the same thing over and over. It’s fine about the card, no worries.

    I’m actually finishing up the leftovers as I type this.

  11. Jules says:

    Yummy…that looks really good, although I’m a straight up pepperoni girl myself.

  12. Drew says:

    Most times I would agree. Pepperoni is my go to pizza however this veggie one was simply awesome! I’m finishing it right now as I blog.
