I'm still trying to get my pizza right. I baked it a bit longer last night so the crust was firm but I didn't notice any special flavor in it to indicate the Italian seasoning and Parmesan cheese I had added to it. Of course, it was covered with sauce and pepperoni and mozzarella cheese so probably I wouldn't have noticed.  But it was a good pizza which SWMBO and I demolished at one sitting.

Tonight, I think will just be some leftover jerk chicken and rice.

I'm beginning to realize, after only a couple of weeks of this, why SWMBO tired of cooking, after 50 years or so.

So . . on to another subject.

The bridge construction continues in my neighborhood and today we found out what those tall cylindrical columns of rebar were used for.  They were guides for the forms into which cement was poured.  One of them was hardened enough for the forms to be removed today and you can see the columns for the bridge coming into being.

I don't know if any of you are as fascinated by this as I seem to be but I'll probably continue reporting on it simply because I drive through the construction zone a couple or more times a day.  Humor me.

Pizza and construction go together like beer and hotdogs.

I think it must be a "man" thing (although, I was fascinated by the Hoover Dam bypass bridge building).

You're making me so hungry for homemade pizza. I might must have to make some tonight!

Ah, Steve, great point!

QD, this one won't be quite as awesome.

Tess, if you do, I want your recipe tips. (Just hold the anchovies!)

It seems that which ever way we choose to go, we run into construction! I hope they get it done soon.

Thanks for the comment,I thought you might have seen Andreas somewhere around town. He is out wandering around a lot. I saw him there with the courthouse in the background and couldn't pass up a picture even though I don't ask for people to pose very often.

Judy - I think that bridge construction won't be done until late in the year.

I've often wondered about Andreas. I thought for a time he might be the musician who plays under the name "Little Larry." As I said on your blog, it's a very good portrait.
