Balls of Anchovy

So, this all would probably make a lot more sense with pictures, which I will post as soon as I figure out where I have left my camera at now, but I wanted to give you some Pizza Party highlights:

1) if you're going to have a pizza party, invite Homer. Because Homer THINKS about ingredients and his thinking is usually spot on. Witness: the bleu cheese/carmelized onion/pistachio/littledashofstarlightandkisses/honey pie which was so good, I wanted to marry it.

2) You can use a leafblower to rev up your fire when you can't find a small fan. However, it will look sort of like Mt. Helen exploded again dumping 3 feet of ash if you do.

3.) More people like anchovies than you think; however, some folks really really don't. Sam made these little mini calzones with pepperoni and anchovies inside and the first batch disappeared so fast, I didn't even get to try one. I asked for a 2nd batch with extra anchovies, but when those came out, I was distracted by the fact that someone had brought a ukelele to the party and was strumming it in the living room (I know, right?). So, I got to the table just as this guy popped the last mini calzone in his mouth. And then I got to laugh as his face contorted into a look of total dismay once he realized that he had a mouthful of anchovy pie. He spit it out and I said, "Serves you right, Junior."

4). I have no idea who that guy was, but I'm pretty sure he doesn't like me.

5). Ukelele? really??? Someone said it was actually just a very small guitar, but I think they were just trying to cover up the fact that they brought a ukelele to a pizza party. Anything's possible, I suppose.

The temperature is supposed to drop about 40 degrees by Thursday. If I weren't still in recovery mode, I'd want to have another pizza party this weekend. Sigh.
