Real Bites - Supper for Four


Mon, Jul 7th, 2014
Posted in All Columnists

It was a Wednesday night, and dad (that would be me) was in charge of supper until mom arrived home.

A fail-safe plan is always to call upon the Village Square of Fountain.

They have a 2-2-2 option that includes two medium pizzas with two toppings plus a two liter bottle of pop. You can’t beat it!

And, I was a winner with the kids!

It’s been interesting to watch our family grow in so many ways -- pizza consumption included. We used to eat one frozen pizza as a family. Now, it takes two pizzas to feed our family.

So, the Village Square of Fountain delivers exactly what our growing family is looking for with their 2-2-2 special.

Pizza seems to transcend generations, from great-grandparents to 3-year-olds. There is a universal language with pizza that makes all of us as happy as the song “Happy” by Farrell Williams.

At the end of the day, we all have busy lives. Having an option like what the Village Square of Fountain offers really makes life easier for a family like ours.

And, when my wife arrived home from work that day, I apparently met her approval. Supper was served, and one less thing to worry about.

Lights, action, camera! Mothers and sisters are the stars of Pop Culture in books, movies, and songs. Think “Little Women” and “I Remember Mama.” Woe to the person who speaks ill of someone’s mother. Double woe to someone who forgets moth .....

When I first started writing this column five years ago, I referred to my husband a few times in my own style of wife humor. However, while I was busting a gut laughing, he found my stories less than humorous and also found out very quickly how many .....
