Coyoty eats The Mona Lisa.

From Pizzeria Da Vinci in Rockfall, CT.


The Mona Lisa: “Broccoli rabe, sausage, fresh garlic and spices topped with asiago cheese”. This was listed as a large pizza, but it should be “enormous”. I couldn’t fit the box in my refrigerator with the leftovers, which unfortunately left the box for the floor when I tried to make it fit.

Kitchen.


Five liters of Foxon Park soda. As Peregrin Took would say, “It comes in liters?!” I’d only seen Foxon Park sodas in single-serve bottles. Of course, I bought the lot. The flavors are Cherry, Iron Brew, Gassosa, Extra Dry Pale Ginger Ale, and White Birch.
