and Chuck’s cousin Dora safely made it out of the snowy and frigid Midwest and spent a few leisurely days in the Phoenix area visiting with Chuck and Dora’s aunt Evie and cousin Raina. When she arrived in Tucson, we immediately made arrangements to meet her and her grandson for a quick bite for supper. And it had to be quick since her grandson had other college-related commitments that evening.
We decided on Rocco’s Little Chicago, the home of our favorite pizza in Tucson,
“Stuffed pizzas are often even taller than deep-dish pizzas, but otherwise, it can be hard to see the difference until you cut into it. A stuffed pizza generally has much higher topping density than any other type of pizza. As with deep-dish pizza, a thin layer of dough forms a bowl in a high-sided pan and the toppings and cheese are added. Then, an additional layer of dough goes on top and is pressed to the sides of the bottom crust (street directory.com).
The following day, we caught Dora’s grandson between classes for a brief lunch at Beyond Bread. Dora and her daughter had eaten there on a previous visit to Tucson and you know that this is one of Chuck and my favorites. Time to introduce a college student.
Both Dora and I ordered the Molly’s Crisis with turkey, hummus, cucumber, sprouts, tomato, and mayonnaise on rustic bread. It was the whole sandwich for me and the half for Dora.
When we were in on the previous Saturday, we noticed this table sign.
Dora’s grandson ordered the day’s sandwich special—the Good Parma with chicken, marinara sauce, provolone, parmesan, fresh basil, and Caesar dressing grilled and served on parmesan herb bread.
All but Dora got the kettle chips as our side. Dora instead selected the cole slaw.
It was hard to tell if they enjoyed them.
Both Chuck, Dora, and I took a part of our lunch back to the RV with us for an early evening meal. Two 5.0 Addie meals with 5.0 Addie company.
