A note: As most of you probably sense, I work a regular job as I pursue working on this business, Food Run Fix. I labor at Kuhn, North America in Brodhead, Wisconsin. It's challenging and my co-workers are some of the best people in the world! With this Corona virus going around, I simply decided to close down the hatch, so to speak. I put in for some time off, vacation time I had banked. It's weird to feel like I should avoid people; that's counteractive to who I am as a human being. It is for the best; everybody I know are my friends. I care for them very much and sincerely respect their lives. Take care of yourself and just stay away until this sick virus passes.

Celeste Pizza

Celeste Pizza and it's namesake is very interesting to me. Celeste (I love that name, by the way) was a real lady with drive and determination. She was from Italy and in the 1930's, made some outstanding pizzas in Chicago. Yes, there was pizza in the 30's :). She was local, she was a success, and eventually sold out to Quaker Oats. I'm sure they offered her a very nice sum. Imagine all of the hard work.

Now, she's a brand and an image. What would she think now? Smile, laugh, shrug her slim shoulders and move on with a slight panache? Did she laugh all the way to the bank? I hope so. Good for her.

I've included some videos from blessed You Tube at the bottom; they are pretty dated but interesting. In one of these videos (which I hope to clean up and edit), you'll not only see a younger Regis Philbin over acting and zany as usual, but do a cooking segment with Mama Celeste! I learned Celeste lived in Wheaton, Il at that time, had her own herb garden and was 73 years old. Good habits never die. What a sweetheart!

Pinnacle Foods owns the Celeste brand now, but there is one certain simple thing that any pizza purchaser should know; that taste and crust started from somewhere and a small idea with service in mind. Hunger identified and hunger served. Abbondanza!
