We love our local Costco for picking up certain groceries for cheap prices. I pick up a Boboli pizza crust & sauce pack from there on most visits (well whenever the SO doesn't notice me putting it in the cart anyway )

I came home early yesterday evening and the first thing I did was order a Hawaiian pizza. It is half gone.

What a coincidence. I made hawaiian pizza for the football crowd yesterday.

<ding dong> it's Rodney Dangerfield at the door in a.....oh never mind...too late.

hooray for you for holding off and eating well while burning calories. when i try to lose weight, i behave for a while and then have something forbidden, but a small amount. Quick, freeze the other half of the pizza!

Here's the link to the article itself:

Objection - vague, mischaracterization. Was it a small pizza? Extra large? Did you eat half yourself or did you have help?

It was a 10" diameter pizza and I ate it all by my lonesome over 2 days. Now I am happy.
