From the black light website:  "Since one scorpion can have over 100 babies it is important to actively detect them at night regularly."

" />


That is all absolutely true (at least that's what we tell you folks up North in order to keep you there).

I love that--"you folks up North".  How quickly they turn on you...

Ann my Dear,
You must have played hookie from Geography Class too often. "East" ends at the Ohio/PA State line! That's where "Midwest" starts and actually, you're in the "Upper Midwest". Granted, you are East of AZ where it will be sunny and in the low 70's this weekend for the PGA Golf Tournament!

Yeah, but can you go cross country skiing down the middle of your street?

True Story - Chicago Blizzard of Jan 1979. I was in Chicago on business. Stranded in the hotel on Michigan Av. People were cross country skiing on Michigan Av. That's when I decided I'd rather be watching a Golf Tournament in AZ in January!

We can check another one off of our Bucket List.  Tonight I went to Burt's Place with Bobbi, Rachel & Martin.
 
Upon arrival, the first thing we saw was this young lady interviewing some patrons for a a cable program or maybe a foodie blog.  She was asking why they were at Burt's and what made it special.

She almost got away, but I made her interview me before leaving.
 
The first thing she mentioned was the Green Bay Packers Super Bowl XLV Champions cap I was wearing.  I explained that I am Senator Spencer Coggs, one of the FIB 14 fugitives from the Wisconsin legislature, and that I have been in Illinois for the last 10 days avoiding the bite of Honey Badger Scott Walker (it is alway OK to lie to the press).
 
She asked why we were at Burt's and was especially interested in the fact that we were an hour and a half from home for pizza.  I told that Burt's had the World's Greatest Waiter and that Burt's was on our bucket list before moving to Arizona.
 
She asked what made Burt's pizza special and I told her I had never had it.  I based my appreciation on Bobbi's and other Roadfooder's feedback.  Bobbi had mentioned the Italian sausage and she was right about it.  It is a sweet sausage that is extremely tasty and perfect on pizza.  I could go for a plate of it on its own. 
 
I figured out the crust on my second slice, but after the interview ended.  There's the bready crust.  Then there's the cheese that melts over the crust.  But the interesting place is between the crust and the cheese - I call it chust or creese.  Something about the yeasty-bready crust at this interface that is not quite cooked because cheese was melting into it hits just the right flavor notes.
 
Our sausage, onion & mushroom pie.

 
Our pepperoni, onion & garic pizza.

 
At the end of the meal we were all happily filled.  The kids both really enjoyed the pizza and gave it high marks.
 
Sorry we didn't invite the Contingent, but Burt's is no place for a large group on Saturday night.

Spencer Coggs, eh?  If she bought that one she's really out of touch-and color blind, too!
 
Damn, I look terrible in that picture--did you have the instant aging filter on your lens?  Do I really have that much gray hair?  Yeesh!
 
It was great having you guys as our guests tonight.  Glad you enjoyed the pizza.  Still, no dessert from Bobbi?  I didn't think she even left the house without a pie in her purse.  So what were Kopp's flavor of the day?
 
Keep watching for a Contingent get-together in Chicago sometime in the Spring.  Lot's of dining ala trunk in sketchy neighborhoods!

I'm all for chipping in to get Ann to an eye doctor toot sweet! Mmm, that look yummy. We had just returned from vacationing in Jamaica and Beth gets called out of town for a family emergency, since resolved (I think) or we would have fought the weather just to shake Spencer Cogg's hand. Spring starts in just 21 days and I'm ready for a Contingent food feast.

Buddy - This one better shows your boyish good looks.

 
Bobbi felt bad about about not bringing a pie, but after we stopped at Oscar's for their Cupid's Creation Sundae she got over it.
 
"Cupids Creation"
This sundae is sure to satisfy your sweet heart or your sweet tooth! Imagine chocolate and vanilla custard topped with chocolate sauce, morsels of tiramisu', red raspberries, whipped cream, delicate chocolate shavings and a cherry of course!

Loved the report! My feelings are not hurt in not being invited as I had authentic Italian in Kenosha yesterday, and that was just the bartender! *rimshot*
 
Glad you guys enjoyed it & can't wait to get together with everyone. LOVE the shot of Buddy on the phone under the Saveur poster.

Why the duplication?
And why can't a Filet Mignon with 2, 982 posts delete his own posts?

I'm sure Buddy will say that he was just taking a pizza order but it sure looks like somebody was calling in a bet for the fifth at Arlington...

Generous to a fault--although they coulda skipped a cash tip altogether if The Pie Diva had just brought dessert!
 
Buddy
 
P.S. Just to be clear; dessert tipping is not something I endorse on a full time basis--just for close friends, and particularly for those well versed in the pie making arts.
