Happy Birthday to the worlds greatest Mom! My mother has supported any decisions I made through my life, and has helped me become the person I am. She always for there for me, which I appreciate greatly. She never was a person that wanted expensive things, or wanted to go to expensive places, although her and my dad did travel to South Carolina a lot of summers for vacation at Myrtle Beach. My mom and dad did travel to western states to visit my brother, and then visited many other states with him. Her and my dad are the ones that introduced me to Mack's pizza. We visited Wildwood, NJ for many summers. We even got to visit Niagara Falls. She was brought up during the Great Depression, and those times are still with her in her thriftiness and how she lives and values others. It it wasn't for her, I might have become a different person. She supported me with love, all though my life. My mom is getting older, and just until a few weeks ago was driving and doing most of her work herself. Now the time has come to help take care of her. I don't feel bad I have to help take care of her, but feel badly that she realizes her mind is failing her some now. It was a sad day when the doctors diagnosed her. I saw the look in her eyes when the doctor talked to us. Her doctor tried to explain to her that as we age, changes do occur, and now those changes are happening with her. She realizes her mind confuses her some now, and with each day she seems to change some, and seems to get frustrated what is happening. Each time now I take her to an appointment, get groceries for her, take her food, or generally help her she apologizes for what I do. I keep telling her, she has done all those things for me for so many years. I could only wish and pray she will get though all this okay. Hopefully I can help my mom get though all this. Just a few years ago, my mom did help me build my small pizza stand at market. That was when she was in her eighties. She helped me lay the tile on the floor, and I never will forgot the memories of that and us getting our hands so sticky from the gook, used to lay the tiles. My mom and dad have helped at our other market stands, too, and also when when we had a concession trailer. There will always be memories of all the laughs we had, and how much my mother and father have supported me. There were also many hours of help when we made clear toy candy. There was much bagging and trimming to be done. My mom and I did take many long walks together, just a few years ago. Now, that isn't possible anymore. My mom keeps asking me, why she was so well, just a short time ago. I don't know those answers, to what happened since then, except she is getting older now. Only God know why things happen. At least that is my opinion.
There is nothing like a love of a great mother! My mom and dad will always be my inspiration.
Love you so much Mom!
There are so many variables that go into making a PIZZA. The hydration of the dough, flour, yeast and many more.. Amounts of any kind of yeast in a pizza can make a big difference. Most recipes posted on the web, use too much yeast in their recipes. What I have found out so far, is either bulk fermenting the dough or cold fermenting the dough will give a better flavor in the crust. I am still experimenting to find different flavors in the crust of pies. In my opinion pizza is all about the best flavor you can achieve in a crust. I still am on the journey about flavors in the crust. Even differences in temperatures in you home or times of the year can influence how much yeast to use. If you want a pizza to develop flavors in the crust, there are many ways to go about achieving this.
