No Offense Mom

A yummy topic this week from Charli Mills of the Carrot Ranch literary community; PIZZA! Check out the weekly 99-word, flash fiction writing challenges athttp://www.carrotranch.com

Pizza. As children, we had this treat about once a month. Mind you, this wasn’t what we know now as pizza. This was a gastronomic wonder mother created from a box bought at the store. It contained a bag of crust powder, a can of cheese, and a can of sauce. And it worked!

That was until we were taken to a pizzeria. Buddy’s Pizza had these tiny, Italian grandmas who took your order, cooked, and served it.  We’d clean our plates as they smiled with approval. The only pizza boxes we used after that said to-go on them!

Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge Ghost & Haunt

Ghost of pizza past

Haunting me with fragrant wisps

Floating through the house

Might I find some left over

Alas, just an empty box

fast fun

Everyone agreed

To grab carry out pizza

As easy supper

It was not fancy

Just cheese and pepperoni

Happy, full tummies

Dre Day

Those moments precious

Friends spend the day together

Laughter, love, pizza
