Well, of course P is for pizza and peach pie.  I love love love fresh peach pie.  Sighs. It’s not fresh peach pie season.  Luckily, pizza is an every season kind of food. Yay!

My favorite pizza place is ModPizza.  A mini 6″ pizza is only $5.99 but what I love is you can have all the ingredients you want so I add spinach, broccoli, corn, tomatoes and onions and can justify my pizza as a salad.  Okay, we’re not mentioning the cheese (asiago often, and mozzarella).  Well, you know how it goes.  I could have the pizza without the cheese if I chose to order that way but are you nuts?

Never even seen papaw but apparently they eat it in Eastern United States.  According to wiki, it’s a fruit that tastes similar to banana and mango but has more protein than most fruits.  Thomas Edison planted some at his home and George Washington loved eating chilled papaw for dessert. The sad thing is that unless papaws are frozen, they don’t travel well which probably explains why I haven’t seen any in Arizona.  It likes the wet soil.  Too bad.  Sounds delicious.

this time I used “asimina” as the search term. It’s the scientific name for papaw.
