It revolved around pizza.
First some background:
For many years now, we have ordered pizza from our local grocery store pizza shop almost every Friday night. It is a nice way to end the week, and the Friday night special price is a very good one - $12 for a huge party pizza that can feed a family of 6 - including 4 with teenage appetites - or $7 for a NY style pizza that feeds the 3 of us still at home, with leftovers for 1 person to have lunch the next day.
That’s without toppings, of course. The price goes up quite a bit for every topping you add. And at this stage of our lives, we often do indulge ourselves. But even with the extra cost, this pizza is certainly among the most economical take-out meals we can have in our neck of the woods.
And I also like the fact that the grocery store uses part-skim mozzarella for their pizza, so it is not swimming in grease the way a lot of pizza does.
But back to the conversation with my son.
