Story time? K, good!
It has nothing to do with this crazy, insanely genius and delicious vegetarian Thai Pizza. We will have to get to that after.
Honestly you guys I do not know how I have not told you this yet! It is probably about the weirdest/creepy/funny story. How I have kept it to myself for 4 whole days is beyond me.
So, it is Wednesday night. It is about 8:00 and I am pulling dinner out of the oven and calling everyone over (all of my brothers were still in town, the other visitors had left on Tuesday and earlier that day). It was our last family dinner before some us head our separate ways and back to the real world (err, more like just Creighton).
Everyone is sitting down and of course we where all waiting for mom to make her way to the table……
My mom walks by the front door on her way to the table (at 8:00 on a Wednesday night) and sees this guy standing at the front door.
Mom opens the door and five minutes later Jackie Chan (no, not the real one. That would have been pretty awesome!) is sitting at our dinner table…….eating Smoked Gouda Chicken Enchiladas.
You guys, let it be noted that we have no idea who this guy is. At first we did not even know his name. Apparently, after having just graduated in December, he was now driving from Nebraska to LA and his credit card was not working. This meant he could not get a hotel room. So my mom being the kind hearted women that she is invited this total stranger into our house and offered him dinner. How this guy ended up at our house (which is not an easy place to get back to, like at all. Not to mention there are like 20 houses he had to go by to get to ours) is beyond me. We were all a little creeped out and pretty skeptical of his story, but again my mom being who she is, could not let this guy freeze (it was dipping waaay into the negatives).
Long story short, there was no way he was gonna sleep in our house. My Dad being umm, smart (or practical) shot that down. So my mom found the guy a cheep hotel home, payed for it and we sent that creep (sorry if I sound insensitive, but it was really weird!) on his way!
Welcome to the Gerard household, where there is always and entertaining story!
Pretty crazy right? I thought that kind of stuff only happened in movies.
So about this pizza. I am not really sure how to express my feeling towards this Thai pizza other than it is pretty freaking amazing, like blow you socks of good! You may think that peanut butter and cheese do not go together, but I promise they do! It is slightly sweet, slightly spicy, slightly peanutty and slightly cheesy! It is fresh and light. Just the smells coming from the oven are enough to drool over. Seriously, your first bite will shock you! The flavors are just so good together, so unique and amazing. Only my parents ate this one – too gourmet for the boys, but they thought it was “worthy of starting a restaurant with only this on the menu”, good.
