How Come I Didn't Think Of This Before

edited 8:45AM in EggHead Forum
Sometimes my little brain-pea just takes off on its own and every now and then hits on a thought which leads to an idea which leads to trying it out.

So here I am watching pizza dough rise while getting all the bits and pieces of 'stuff' ready to put on top. There must have been 19 or 15 different things I found in the refrigerator and other places.

Every now and then I would eat a few Cheetos and take a swig of Diet Dr Pepper, a good combination if there ever was one.

PRANGGGGGGG!!!!! (That's what it sounds like when my pea runs into a thought)

[Picture eye looking up, chin in hand, lip curled upward in corner, glowing light bulb over head]

I like pizza and I like Cheetos, so why don't I just make a Cheeto Pizza Surpreme, I internally said to myself.

I internally replied, Yea, do it!

Next thing I know is I'm adding a few Cheetos to the already piled high pizza ingredients. I only put them on a small area because Spring Hen might not take kindly to me thinking while cooking.

So off to a waiting Lily Large to get 'er done.

And here's the outcome...


Yes, the Cheetos did take on a different flavor and it wasn't bad. Just not enough Cheetos for my pleasure. I'll definitely come up with a recipe for this pizza and pass it on. Oh wait! Just add Cheetos to your Pizza ingredients. I think you can remember that.

You're welcome.

    That's what I used to wash down the Cheetos Pizza Surpreme. After all, it is the Pepper Picker Upper.

    I think you might have better luck to cook the pizza and then after its done sprinkle cheetos all over it. You'll keep the crunch and the flavor intact.

    I wonder if "How Come I Didn't Think Of This Before" is the right question Leroy. From someone that can't eat pizza or Cheeto's I can only wonder what would make you think of it now? Was it due to an alignment of the planets? Maybe it was it due to a shift in the tectonic plates under Texas? Is there unusual sun spot activity today disrupting communication satellites? Were you occupied in the room of porcelain furniture at the time? Disregard that last question, it's more then we need to know! In the past we have heard of the "Dawning of Aquarius" and "the dawning of the industrial age", now we have heard the "Dawning of the Cheeto's Pizza"! Do we dare harbor a guess as to what is going to hatch forth from exulted Pea of Spring Chicken next? love0029.gif

    I take a nap when I get ideas like your's . . . it helps! smiley-whacky115.gif  :laugh:

    ...someone that can't eat pizza or Cheeto's .. WOW! That leaves a really big gap in that 'pursuit of happiness' clause in the Declaration of Independence.

    There should have been something in the Declaration of Independence about Cheetos.

    Of course one should be alive, well and fit to pursue happiness these days, much less catch it, and anything good is not good for you. I've got until May 2017 to pursue and catch all the happiness I can handle. Says so on my drivers license.

    Pursuit sometimes leaves me in a state of confusion.

    This whole thing sounds to me like a "senior moment" or, as we call it in the country a "brain f&rt!" :laugh: :laugh:

    Fear not Spring, the ADA (Americans with Diabetes Act of 2020) makes provision for those of us that can not pursue happiness through the consumption of carbohydrates! These provisions are poorly defined and hard to interpret at times but are a vast improvement.

    My drivers license declares that I have until the same year to pursue happiness but I believe I have a "get out of jail free" coupon to use at that time that will extend my pursuit for a good number of years providing there is no intervention by Congress between now and then. :pinch:

    Just remember Grasshopper, if the pursuit of happiness sometimes leaves us in a state of confusion then our goal is just around the next corner . . . or is it the next corner? . . . or maybe the next corner? . . . no, no no, wait! it has to be the next corner! :huh:


  • Them pain pills have sure cleansed your thought processes :whistle: ......or maybe it was dem lil' green men you been thinkin' 'bout :evil:
  • Spring ChickenSpring Chicken Posts: 10,247
    No pain pills but I do kinda like my sleeping pills.

    As for "little green men" they're just a phone call away at BGE Home Office. Or so I've been told.

    Hey Kari

    Hahahahaha, actually I was able to quit the pain pills the other day for the over the counter stuff so I guess it has to be the little green visitors from Roswell, they play a mean game of cribbage! :cheer:


  • Gator Bait Gator Bait Posts: 5,244
    I'm the guilty party with the pain pills Leroy. I had about 16 teeth surgically extracted on June 29th and got me some of them fancy new store bought teeth. I was petitioning Keri for any help she might have scheduling an Alien abduction the day of my surgery. I figured if she lived close to Roswell she might have connections in very high places! :lol:

    I am eager for the day I can fire up the egg and cook up some ribs and enjoy them! ;)

    lol I think you've created a monster. My wife's jaw nearly dropped to the floor when I mentioned your idea. I think she'd leave me for Chester Cheetah if she could! She loves her some Cheetos like you wouldn't believe. lol
  • Spring ChickenSpring Chicken Posts: 10,247
    Yea, when we Cheeto lovers get a craving we might be able to limit ourselves to just one but it would have to be as long as a wagon track.

    I see you are a fan of the CRUNCHY ones.ME TOO.I like the jalapeno flavored CRUNCHY ones too.Puffs just ain't right! :laugh:
  • elzbthelzbth Posts: 2,075
    Gotta say - this ranks right up there with something my sweet neices used to actually order whenever they got the chance.....are you ready for this???? Vanilla ice cream and saltine crackers. Gotta wonder sometimes where these cravings come from. :huh:
  • Spring ChickenSpring Chicken Posts: 10,247
    Me too on the puffs. Ain't right. They're so lite they disappear when you breathe on 'em.

    I'm a switch-hitter between the jalapeno/cheddar and regular. I can go the hot ones if I have to.

    I figure a handfull of 'em don't weigh zip so how much weight can they put on. Must be the polluted water in the ice in my rum 'n cokes causing me to gain weight.
