DON'T TREAD ON ME

     

    I do not eat a lot of sweets so they are not my weakness, pizza is.  And believe me when I tell you, I do damage!

     

    when i lived in New York I lived on pizza. 2 something dollars a slice, a pizza shop every 75 feet and a lot of them open till 3-4 AM? That is a recipe for personal disaster in my case. Not to mention that NYC pizza is probably the best overall in the world. Maybe better than in Italy.

      Comparatively speaking, I did most of my over drinking as a yute.  But between the ages of 30 and 45, I chose quality over quantity, so the end result was the same, ha-ha!

       

      I've always preferred fabulous to feh.

        As someone who grew up in the Chicago area, I take issue with that statement. Chicago-style deep dish all the way. Additional benefits in sheer calorie/fat density - try stacking up about 6 NY slices and you get an idea.

        I have pretty much sworn off pizza in general since I started trying to eat healthier in recent years, but when I get back to Chicago I can't help but indulge.

          Good interpretation!

           

          In other words, alcohol helps you store extra fuel for your next marathon.  Big grin

            Word.  Especially cheesecake...or cupcakes.

             

            Last night I had both alcohol and cupcakes.  Not at the same time as that would've been yucky unless it was a cupcake martini.

            The thing with alcohol is that if I'm going to blow all those calories, I'd rather just have a piece of cake or something!

              Note to you.  Never EVER eat pizza in Miami.  Worst pizza in the world, ugh.  I agree, NY is among the best (if not the best) that I've tried.  Actually NY pizza is better than Italy's.

                        That was my favorite sandwich when I was a kid, lol. I don't eat cheese anymore, though.

                            Chicago...they make right the first time.  So, you don't have to fold it in half.
