They say variety is the spice of life.
What happens if you don't like spicy food?
Shouldn't it be something like 'variety is the thing that makes your life more interesting'
Not so catchy, I grant you, but more accurate.
Or is it?
Pizza could be a suitable replacement for variety.
Pizza is the spice of life.
But pizza doesn't have to be spicy of course.
It can be, but it doesn't have to be.
And that's the point.
Pizza can be anything you want it to be.
You start with a bready base and add a tomato sauce.
There's your two staples, bread and veg (I know a tomato is a fruit or something) and the basis for anything you want.
Add cheese, onion, mushroom, peppers, anything.
Or be exotic and try olives or anchovies.
Be hot and add chilli peppers and spicy sausage.
Or be weird and try pineapple or artichoke.
You can eat pizza every day of the week and have something different each time.
Or you could have fish and chips.
We all know about rock salt, but what about rocks themselves?
Did you know there is a type of sandstone made from grit.
It's called gritstone and it's very good for making millstones.
So millstones are made from gritstone which is really sandstone.
The weather shapes it, so I don't really see how it's any good for making flour.
You'd think the flour would get sand in it.
Maybe that's how the Americans make their world famous disgusting breakfast fodder, with the imaginative name of............Grits.
Americans are funny folk, aren't they?
Not in a funny way, but in a funny way.
If you know what I mean.
But that's a story for another time.......
