Pizza. I’m thankful for pizza. Any pizza.
Chicago-style pizza is generally 5-pounds of crust, cheese, sauce and, for me, another three pounds of pepperoni.
It started out as a Saturday night thing but when the church I was serving as pastor started a Saturday night service, we moved family pizza night to Friday night and it has been there for the last 10 years or so.
This tradition was inspired by something my dad did with me and my brother. Back in the early 70’s the three of us would order pizza and watch Emergency! on Saturday nights. That’s a great memory for me.
It’s great that now they have Emergency! available on DVD so my kids can enjoy this campy but exciting TV show and I can bond one of my favorite childhood memories with them.
Family Pizza Night! I’m looking forward to that tonight!
