Someone I know was over for dinner one night and I'm leaving out all details because I don't want him/her to get in trouble. This person works for a fast food pizza restaurant and was watching while I prepared a green salad with mushroom, cucumbers, etc. He/She picked up one of the mushrooms and said, "Wow! Cool! At the pizza shop where I work all the mushrooms are really slimy and old. I forgot what a fresh mushroom was like. Nobody can tell what they're eating because once it's cooked in all that sauce, you can't tell."
Well.... yuck! That story kind of stuck with me and now I'm rather leery of buying pizza. I remember our school custodian telling me once, "I used to work in a restaurant and let me tell you, I'm not ordering anything that isn't cooked."
Well... like my mom always says, "Home cooking is best." And since she's the one always cooking these days, I can't agree more.
