Pizza at Home - Thin Crust Pizza in an RV

Happy Sunday! It's another day to enjoy pizza!

Since everyone likes it so much, there's one thing I really want to crack. Thin Crust Pizza. The whole family, except me, loves thin crust pizza. I got some pizza stones for my oven for Christmas, but I still need to figure out a way to get crispy crust out of them. Let's give it a shot today.

Doritos flavors taste test comparison

Who doesn't love Doritos! When I announced this taste test to the family in Michigan, many were excited to try them. 

But I myself was a little disappointed in how many different flavors I was able to find. I know there's over 20 different kinds, so being able to find only 11 was not my best work. It might be supply chain issues, because though I visited 8 different stores, I was finding repeats of many of the flavors, but nothing new. 

Today we'll sample Doritios Nacho Cheese, Cool Ranch, Ultimate Cheddar, Spicy Nacho, Flamin' Hot Nacho, Spicy Sweet Chili, Flamas, Dinamita Chile Limon, 3D Crunch Chili Cheese Nacho, and 3D Crunch Spicy Ranch. 

Did you know that Doritos and Disneyland have a history? In the 1960s, at the Casa de Fritos restaurant inside Disneyland (Rancho del Zocalo today) surplus tortillas were cut up, fried, and seasoned. They were so popular that eventually Frito-Lay released them nationally in 1966 as the first tortilla chip in the USA. 

Toasted Corn (1966) was the first flavor released, but it was not so popular because it lacked much seasoning. Taco flavored Doritos (1967) came next and were much more successful. Finally in 1972, the flavor I think about when I think of Doritos was born. Nacho Cheese!

SpaceX Rocket Launch

One of the awesome things about living in Florida is that Cape Canaveral isn't all that far away. For kids who love things that are space related, that's great! 

On Thursday morning, I was tracking a launch by SpaceX, and right at 10:25am they were ready! I called the kids to come watch on the TV and then showed them the area of the sky we might be able to see it.
