Dangerously organic!

So, here's how it all began. David Beasley and I were solving the world's problems at Maude's coffee here in the Swamp. I stopped to add some soy to Dave's coffee. Looked up and saw this incredible work of art called "Still Life in Baking"

Such a nice thought. And, later I surfed to the local pizza mecca Satchel's website. You know, I love Satchel's. I love the van in front that you can eat in. See the homepage for a picture of that 60's van. I like that the employees get great benefits like a week of paid vacation per year and matching IRA contributions. Satchel is the owner. He's been in the biz for years. Started out as a dishwasher in town. Finally opened up his own place in a kind of out of the way location here in Gainesville. People come to it because it's good despite the drive. Satchel writes well. His menus have his writing on back. Check out his blog. You can read his menu backs on the main website.

Anyhoo, I used to work at a pizza place in Texas when I was in college. I'll never forget the looks on patrons faces as I practically flew in the parking lot after a pizza delivery in my car with the campos (campus police) right behind me because of my speeding.

So, the wheels turned. I looked around thinking "How hard could this be?" I found a pizza dough recipe online. But, better yet, I found out that our local grocery store sold dough! Too hungry now to make dough. We'll do that next time.

Got some. Got some feta, spinach, broccoli, tomato sauce, onion, chili pepper, yellow bell pepper, and voila! It's cookin' as we speak.


Meanwhile, I encourage you to read Satchel's website in its entirety. It's one of those magic places. Everybody's happy. You might wait an hour for a pie. Ya gotta pay cash - no credit cards. But, you can while away the hour at Satchel's Lightnin' Salvage junk shop.

Make your own pizza. Visit Lightnin' Salvage. Have fun! Stay tuned!
