When I was in college, I made a weekly trip to Macri's Deli for a veggie pita. (OK, maybe it was more than weekly, but it was cheap and I was in college, so who's counting). Anywhoose, for some strange reason I awoke at the crack of dawn a few days ago craving a veggie pita.
I am happy to report that I think, for the very first time in my pitiful little life, I have nailed it! I came home from the grocery with the necessary provisions, sliced and diced and microwaved, and voila! It was 1987 all over again.
Simple enough, really...flatbread, shredded lettuce, tomatoes, onion, green pepper, mushrooms, and shredded cheese. After a quick zap, a bit of cucumber ranch dressing and nom nom nom! I have to ask...who's happier than me?
* Stewey tells me that the V in Hail to the V has absolutely nothing remotely to do with vegetables, but I'm too busy preparing tomorrow's culinary adventure to argue with him.
** Stewey also tells me that Macri's Deli is still in business (but in a different location) and that they still have the Veggie Pita on their menu and that I could have driven there in three and a half minutes to get one, but it's the Friday night of the Notre Dame/ USC weekend and I'm not going anywhere other than my Happy Chair and a few hot soapy tubs!
