This would have been good advice for my first attempt at pizza making yesterday. It was an unmitigated disaster. I made the dough LATE friday night because our lesbian neighbor came over to a meeting to discuss replacing our joint fence. She ended up overstaying and getting pretty hammered on our wine service. Nice lady but that really fkd up my dough schedule. Anyway, I'm not really experienced with using dough (other than cookies) and basically I fkd up the whole thing. Tried the traditional tossing/stretching method and ended up with three pizza crusts with holes in them. It seemed like I wasn't working with enough material. Ended up throwing it all in the trash and going out to the casino for dinner.....where I also lost money. I bought Trader Joe's dough this morning to use up all the fancy toppings I had planned. This is clearly a first world problems CSB but it was a bit frustrating I should have just made some dough to practice with. Cinco De Mayo fail.
I am terrible with pizza dough as well. I think it takes a lot of practice to work out right.
Pizza in general is a lot of work and expensive to make at home. I got pretty good at it once but quit when I realized it cost about the same as ordering carryout.

Totally. Add up all the ingredients for multiple toppings and you're really not saving much.

I do think it could be fun to make, and putting it on my ceramic grill has produced some seriously unique/excellent pies.

:dat: when we do it it's "for fun" and almost always buy premade dough.

Yea, I've tried off and on throughout the years. Mastering it is a serious time commitment.

Fortunately, even bad pizza is probably decent, so learning can be part of the fun.

The funny part is that I asked a while back about Pizza dough on here and Brandon responds "Get some dough at Trader Joes, load with processed meat, done!" Well, I'm way to cool for this poverty spec idea. So I order "The Elements of Pizza" from Tech Broham turned Pizza Guru Ken Forkish...

https://www.amazon.com/Elements-Pizza-U ... eway&sr=8-

I buy all his gear, hoping for the best. I'm going to make a fancy Hawaiian and a Fennel Sausage and onion za with fresh mozzarella. I fire up the Kamado, working towards the magic 550 degree temp. And then I realize I can't make the fking crust to save my life. So Brandon, this bud's for you. Two bags of Trader Joe's in the fridge. No processed meat doe except for Canadian Bacon. Which I guess is pretty processed.

It's a fun thing to do with kids for sure. My parents did the same thing with the premade stuff most of the time.

Went to a specialist today about that abnormality under my tongue. He immediately identified it as cancer. Says he hopes hes wrong (so do I mfer) but did a biopsy, tube scope up the nose , and sent me for a chest xray. MRI scheduled for Thursday, CT scan for next week. Just praying it hasnt spread and they can just cut it out and hit me with some rads. Fuck me.

Fuck man, us :wap: s are not having good luck lately. Sorry for this scary diagnosis but it's good that you jumped on it pretty quickly which is always good with a Big C diagnosis. Good luck with the scan results and keep us posted. We're here for you.

Also, FWIW, I know someone who had to undergo a bout of radiation and she said it was really no big deal at all. Zero pain or discomfort, just a little fatigue, so no need to worry if that's what they say you need. :like:

Possibly along these same lines, I got a call yesterday from a nurse about my CT scan that I had last week. In addition to looking at my heart I guess they had a peek around elsewhere in my abdomen and found a "nodule" on my diaphragm. :wtf: She said it wasn't necessarily serious but recommended that I get it looked at again in 6 months. As if my scary health issues plate wasn't full enough at the moment...

I'm hoping.

As a coworker pointed out to me yesterday, all these body scans are finding stuff that most people probably have, especially when they get to my age, but never know about because most people have no need to get themselves scanned. That made some sense.

Exactly.

It's great that we're able to do these scans for sure, but I think sometimes it can create more unnecessary worries...like this case.
