Delicious, Fresh and Wonderful

Being married is different. I think that's somewhat of an understatement but it is wonderful. I do love every minute of it. One of the ways it has changed things is that now I cook more. I have to since my wife is used to eating home cooked meals everyday and not eating out that often (like me!). So I FINALLY discovered fresh mushrooms. All my life I kind of ignored mushrooms. I could take them or leave them, made no real difference to me.

I tried to think back as to why they never really jumped out at me before but then it suddenly hit me: I had always eaten canned mushrooms. No wonder I didn't find anything special in them, they were always that processed brown flavourless mush! It all started a little while back when I decided to make a mushroom sauce for our steak and the taste surprised me.

It all pretty much started when we went to the new pizza hut restuarant. We had been doing some after-work errands and were hungry and thought we'd drop in at pizza hut for a quick bite to eat. Lo and behold, we found ourselves in an actual restuarant, not a fast food pizza place like most Pizza Huts. They had Menu's with actual food. When it came, it was every bit as good as it sounded, fresh ingredients, great flavor and freshly made drinks. Not one processed defrosted piece of crap! Needless to say, I was astounded.

The waiter recommended a pasta with shrimp and red pepper flakes that added just a touch of heat. It was incredible. I really enjoyed the dish and was pleasantly surprised at the flavor of the fresh ingredients. This further motivated me to start using fresh ingredients that I had not usually used before. Thus, the mushrooms.

So, if you're ever in the mood for some good food at a good price in a good location, I would suggest that you try out this particular Pizza Hut.
