In Vancouver, BC, someone invented and now serves marijuana pizza. Brilliant! Satisfy your habit and the munchies at the same time!
Since cannabis is legal in so many places now, it was going to happen. Somebody was going to put two and two together and develop one. Plus, with the short term memory loss many experience as a result of using weed, people are likely to forget they even ordered one and get another.
Whenever I was in the UK, I would order the weirdest pizza on the menu. You can get practically anything on a hand tossed pie. Usually I did it just to gross out a friend of mine. He wanted to find a Pizza Hut there. I know! A Pizza Hut while in a foreign land? Are you kidding me?
I traveled across Canada, from west to east, making stops in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto and Montreal. Then I would head for Marseille, France and finally, Walsall in the UK five times in a year and a half. It was crazy, but I loved it!
In every city, I wanted to taste what the locals ate. To me, that was a huge part of the adventure. Everything was pretty tame in Canada until I got to Montreal. Famous for their smoked meats, I was delighted. Until I went to a mall one day. I wanted pizza and there was a place in the food court.
As I was standing in line, I couldn’t tell what to order because everything was in French. So, I watched and listened to the people ahead of me and learned how to order a pepperoni pizza. I ordered one and the guy asked me a question, in French. I stood there staring at him like a deer in headlights and finally uttered “Oui s’il vous plaît”, meaning yes please.
The guy turned around and put french fries (I guess they just called them fries) all over the pizza! I know! I was stunned. I looked around at others enjoying their pizza at the food court tables and noticed that more than half had fries, too. So, I paid for the pizza and decided to try it. It was delicious! Someone had actually found a delightful way to make pizza worse for you. Brilliant!
We all know that Canada has an abundance of amazing maple syrup. My waiter at an upscale restaurant recommended I try the “Maple on a stick” for dessert. I did and it was delicious. He then showed me how they made the treats.
It was winter, so out in back of the restaurant there was quite a bit of snow. There was a small brick wall with a pretty thick coating of snow on it. The waiter then took a pitcher of syrup and poured a syrup all the way down the snow on the wall, then quickly took a lollipop stick and rolled it on top of the snow. The syrup stuck to the stick and rolled up into the maple on a stick.
In France, I learned quickly that they didn’t serve a good “American Breakfast”. They offered it at the hotel, but it was disgusting. Very runny scrambled eggs and barely cooked soft bacon. No thanks. I saw that most people were enjoying baguettes, cheese and some of the strongest coffee I’ve ever had. I grew to love this combination no matter how badly the baguettes sliced up the inside of my mouth.
I also tried the French food item that is still my favorite food. Escargot. I know! Snails? Really? Yes. Obviously, these are not garden snails, and if they’re cooked properly and served in garlic butter… So delicious!
So, marijuana pizza? Why not? Maybe with some fries on top? Doritos? Who knows?
See you tomorrow.
