Look What I Found.....and a Blue Apron Pizza

Hi there everyone. Well, well, well, look what I found. The Original Green River!!!! Do you remember drinking Green River back in the old days? I may be dating myself, but I remember drinking this stuff with French fries at the local Walgreens. They still had the soda fountains and booths where you could sit and play the juke box via the wall selection at your booth. Yep and a big glass of Green River....those were the days.
Here's what the label reads: Green River soda was introduced to Midwestern drinkers in 1919, just as Congress was passing the 18th Amendment establishing Prohibition. When Prohibition officially went into effect on January 16, 1920, some breweries turned to making nonalcoholic drink called Near Beer, while others were churning out ice cream. The Schoenhofen Edelweiss Brewing Company of Chicago turned to Green River. The soda was poured into old beer bottles and sold in the market. It was an immediate hit. The soft drink was so popular that Al Jolson recorded a song written about Green River.

Today, we celebrate Green River's history! With an amazing visual appeal including its bright green color, the brand takes people back to a pleasant time in their life, in the 1950's and 1960's at a time of corner soda fountains and drive-in movies.
Yep....had a little glass tonight with a couple of frozen strawberries in it. Oh yummmmm.....a taste of the "good ole' days"!!!!
AND then, another glass of "Green River" with this delicious Blue Apron pizza...oh yum.
I have not talked about Blue Apron for quite awhile, that is because I have not gotten a Blue Apron box since the last week of December.....saving money and just waiting to see a few dishes that are completely different then what we have received and wanting a box that both JP AND I would enjoy together. He is getting very picky in his old age. I have to be careful that there is not too much spice.
So this pizza was very delicious, I gave it 5 stars!!! "Spinach & Fresh Mozzarella Pizza" As you can see, the sauce was on the side. The pizza is covered with cooked spinach, (I added red pepper)green pepper, olives and shallots. Topped with mozzarella, ricotta and Parmesan cheese. I have found that all Blue Apron pizzas are really good.

Well, I think I shall close this post....have been working on this particular post for a couple weeks and just saving it as a draft. So actually this is OLD news from two weeks. I do have a few post ideas up my sleeves....that's better then no posts....right???

The Blackhawks are playing I sure do hope they win this game, they are down 2 games and if they want to stay in the playoffs, they need to win the next 4 games!!! Not sure I would make a very good coach...."you win or else....hit the road Jack and don't cha' come back no moe")

You all have a great night and keep looking up...better days are coming. Cheers ~ Louise
