Shut Up and Mangia!, Issue #006 -- Pizza, Pizza, Pizza
August 15, 2007
Part of the secret of success in life is to eat what you like and let the food fight it out inside. - Mark Twain
The August 15th issue of "Shut Up and Mangia!" will focus on our love of pizza. Since the kids are getting ready to go back to school, a pizza party would be a nice send off. Besides eating pizzas, the best part is getting the whole family together to make them. Unfortunately my kids prefer "Pizza Hut" over my homemade pizza but we still make it every so often.
For those of you who emailed me regarding our "Shut Up and Mangia!" logo, you can now visit my store at Cafepress to purchase your t-shirts, sweatshirts, chef’s aprons, etc..
The wine section should hopefully be finished by the middle of next month. I’m still waiting on the wine pairing to be completed along with the other remaining pages.
Thanks again for purchasing products through The Italian Grocer. I’ve posted a wide variety of Italian products to help prepare some of your favorite dishes.
