Do you ever obsess about food?
Do you ever obsess about food? I sure do!! I moved from NJ to MO and I have to say that I am obsessed about food that Springfield, MO does not have. I dream about pizza, Origins Restaurant in Somerville, NJ and deli sandwiches. I miss Steck’s deli on the Somerville Circle and Randazzo’s on 202 in Raritan, NJ.
Why does one obsess about food? It is very easy when you no longer can walk into a deli and get rare Roast Beef on Rye Bread with spicy mustard. When there is no Italian Salumaria where you can get prosciutto with mozzarella with Roasted Red Peppers. When you can’t pick up the phone and order a pizza. Pizza like you are used to in NJ or NY City does not exist in the Midwest. I dream about the crunch and goo of a good pizza. When I fly back to NJ a few times a year the first thing I do is buy a slice of pizza and go out to dinner to Origins. Springfield, MO has hundreds of restaurants and I have to admit that there is never a shortage of good food. I just wish that there was pizza and a deli. A girl can only wish!! And they do say that dreams can come true.
