As so often happens here, some of our friends are moving. Sarah, Mica, Jen and I met Victory and her darling boys at Pizza Antica for a little goodbye lunch. I will miss her and her family. It always seems that I wait until someone is leaving before I realize all that I could have learned from them.
Victory is an amazing person, with so much knowledge about so many things. She was our Gospel Doctrine teacher for a while and never ceased to amaze me with her foreign language understanding and ability to explain the gospel. I will miss her and her beautiful singing talents dearly!
The Dayna Salad
On a lighter note, anyone that has been to lunch or dinner with me knows that I cannot simply order off the menu. It can't be done. I usually need part of that with part of this and a little bit of that dressing or some sauce on the side. Some restaurants are offended and the chef won't change anything because it is their 'art form' (like editing movies, I suppose) but Pizza Antica really delivered! I asked for the Number 3 pizza (proscuitto, artichoke hearts, shaved parmesan) in a salad instead of dough. It took a few minutes for the waiter to understand that I didn't want the crust, but once he got it, he checked with the manager and they made the "Dayna Salad". It was delicious. If you haven't been, you should go. And as a bonus, Powell's Sweet Shoppe is right across the street!
