Welcome Wednesday, with a Few Words


This was supposed to be a "Wordless Wednesday" post, with the Giordano's pizza that Jeremy and I relished in Chicago saying everything it needed to with its seductive pose. But then I got this amazingly flattering email:

Congratulations! We have randomly chosen your blog to be one of our spotlighted blogs on this week's Welcome Wednesday! We love your blog "Food Floozie" and are so happy to share it with others!

Well, how could I not at least express an enormous thank you to Kristin and Jaime at Take It From Me for this great thrill??? So, it's not "Wordless Wednesday" anymore; but for me, it's at least "Not as Wordy Wednesday" ... :)



NOTE: Don't forget to check out the "thank you" post for my followers, and leave a comment at the end of it if you're interested in the gift drawing: "L'Chaim -- To Life!"

I don't know if that is a chain restaurant, but my mom and I went to a restaurant in Orlando and got a stuffed pizza that looked very much like that. OMG it was so good. I think it might have been called Giordano's. Yummy.

I know there are several outlets in Chicago; don't know about beyond that. But even if there were one on every corner, like Starbuck's, the pizza was AMAZING!!! Posting about it tomorrow ... :)

Yumm..that pizza looks SO good! Congrats on being one of the spotlighted bloggers! I am following you now on GFC (stephanierosenhahn)!
It looks like you are quite a cook based on what you vow to do this summer. Just one of those would probably take me most of the summer to learn to do : )

Hope you'll stop by and check out my blog too. I have a daily post called the Low Entry Lowdown where I list different low entry giveaways from around the blogosphere. Thanks again!

Blessings,

Hi! So nice to meet you! Thanks for visiting my blog this morning. I have to say that according to your definition, I am also a food floozy. That pizza picture made me hungry, straight after breakfast. Do you live in Chicago? We are moving to Indiana in 6 weeks, from the UK. Looking forward to the restaurants... :-)

Yenta Mary said...

My goodness, it's a busy and sociable morning already! No, I don't live in Chicago -- I live in Ann Arbor, but my son Jeremy and I just took a quick 2-day vacation to eat and walk our way through Chicago. More details about the pizza are coming tomorrow, with a post about my favorite gourmet food store due on Friday ....

Looks amazing! We used to go to a place called Geno's Pizza. It was below ground level on a side street in Chicago. I wonder if it's still there.
