    Some of us southerners still call the noon meal "dinner." I suppose the agrarian lifestyle required a lot of midday nutrition.

    What term do you use for "lunchbox"?

    Oh, it's still a "lunchbox." Because it doesn't hold all that much.

    At church, we observe "The Lord's Supper," not "The Lord's Dinner."

    Literally, Italy is less important than basil, in Italian food.

    I don't know which is worse--your basil take, or your parsley take.

    Ahh, that's what I had in Naples, the Marinara...o_O

    “Pizza Marinara”

    Canned peeled tomatoes 70 – 100 g
    Olive oil (Extra Vergin) 6 – 8 g (variance of +20%
    tolerated)
    Garlic One clove (3gr)
    Origano 0.5 g (a pinch)

    I just saw marinara on the board and thought it might have some seafood on it.... and got one like that recipe, though I'm not sure it had much tomato sauce on it..

    for a hungry bloke, it seemed kinda lacking...no toppings or cheese... :lol:

    Talking smack about basil is forum violation.

    In winter? No. It's canned year 'round.

    Yeah, that’s a bad pic. John’s is the best pie in the city.

    The biggest difference in pizza is in the crust / dough. All fresh baked goods in New York (not just pizza) taste better than anywhere else because New York has the best tasting water. It really comes down to that. And it's known all over the world. I read that there's a famous hotel in London will only use water from the New York municipal water supply in the tea they serve.
