Store bought pita bread just plain sucks. So I baked my own tonight...
I hear you, and normally would agree. However, living around the corner from a Lebanese deli has advantages. I'll happily buy their pita anytime vs. making my own! (which we've done)

I do have to give you crap for bagging on store bought pita while you're using store bought tzatziki?!?!

I re use all sorts of plastic containers and lids for the stuff I make. Wife buys these things of olives or Guac or in this case a tub of taziki to try. She has a peculiar pallet so I end up with some store bought stuff she likes and a batch of stuff I make to suit my tastes. My stuff ends up in a reused container vs tossing plastic in recycling after one use

FYI when I say store bought I mean Big Chain Supermarket crap not local mom and pop artisan bakery

In the cleavage of the Tetons
I’ll need a report first. The fact that they are trying to also do a little Mexican is a little disconcerting. They probably (correctly) assume that some customers might feel overwhelmed by Peruvian dishes that they don’t know.
But yeah, I should come through there next summer, hopefully before Canada (and the west) starts to get too Smokey.

Godspeed Princess Lumpy, you are a good girl!!!

My lucky dog gets burger bites on river / float days... spoiled he is.

Unrelated, DARK chocolate forms the base of my food pyramid and I've taken chocolate farm tours before where we got to taste fresh cacao bean fruit which was otherworldly.

So a $490* OG heirloom artesinal chocolate bar... hmn:

Roast yellow bell pepper, red onion and cauliflower. Basic chunky garlicky red sauce. Prosciutto. Mozzarella.

Dough of Mrs. Scrub's creation. No idea. I rolled mine out supah! thin. 600F for 15-ish minutes got me the crunchy kind of crusty I prefer, and not soupy toppings.
