The day after making a yummy salad with locally grown produce, we sent out for pizza, wings AND cookies from Salvatore’s Pizzeria in Herkimer. On the brighter side, I can give another shout-out to a local business. On the darker side, my weight loss goals become merely weight loss daydreams.
It was Steven’s idea. No, it really was! I did not try very hard to dissuade him. In my defense, Steven’s appetite is so capricious these days, when he actually gets a yen to eat something, I feel I ought to encourage it. Additionally, we like to support a local business. Stop laughing at me for rationalizing! As if YOU never eat pizza (you know who you are).
Where was I? Ah yes, feeling full and happy. We got a small garlic pizza with sausage and black olives, chicken wings Siciliano, and two large chocolate chip cookies. I had one slice of pizza and three wings, and, yes, I ate a cookie. I make no promises regarding the leftovers.
We got delivery, which is always prompt and friendly. Many of us have been sending out for food more often since the pandemic. You can get that little frisson of virtue from supporting the local economy. We are not sending out as often as we did in previous months, so I felt happy to do so today.
I am planning an extra long run tomorrow. Additionally, I still have a salad and other vegetables in my refrigerator. I will get back on the path to my weight loss goals! In the meantime, I confess to having enjoyed this evening’s little detour.
Salvatore’s Pizzeria and Restaurant is located at 650 1/2 W. German St., Herkimer, NY, phone number 315-866-2600. You can Like them on Facebook. I certainly did!
