Pizza Party

We received an email from our friend, ZT, who was our neighbor at the farmer’s market, about a pizza party he was holding. Z is a baker of killer bread that is also made from locally grown wheat that he mills himself. Toward the end of last year’s market, he procured a beautiful wood burning oven that was portable, and he started making pizzas at the market. They were a hit, and he moved onto the next phase an built a brick oven in his home.

To celebrate its inauguration, he invited a bunch of friends and neighbors to come over and have pizza. How cool is that? Of course, we had an incredibly busy day that day, and the last thing we wanted to do was to be social, but no time for whining, right? We whipped together some toppings, made a big salad, and headed on over.

His place is right outside of town, and from the looks of things, he’s got the homesteader thing going. Vegetables, goats, the whole nine yards. There was a good crowd there, and we ended up seeing a bunch of our friends and making new ones, which is what small town life is all about, right?

The pizzas were amazing, and he must have cranked out about 50 of them, they kept coming. The kids had a blast seeing their friends, it was a really nice time. We left as it got cooler and darker, which when everyone else was leaving. Another nice local and neighborly event, and yet another occasion to remind ourselves how lucky we are to live up here.

Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to Scott Snyder for the pic.
