I am constantly amazed at how animated and talkative people get when you mention food. The mere aroma of certain foods can evoke memories that transport us back to a special place and time. Food can bridge the gap between all ages, races and ethnicities.
Let's face it, the only thing that should ever come between people is a table and some serving bowls.

Sometimes you just need a Deep Dish!

There is nothing like a deep dish pizza or how about a deep dish apple pie.
Sure...I wouldn't pass up a thin slice of pizza or a shallow piece of pie.But there is something to be said for those extra layers.With those layers comes extra flavor, texture, dimension. A depth of character that you can't help but be drawn to.
You can almost parallel it with the people we encounter in our lives. Some people have a tendancy to be shallow, living life on the surface. It's just easier for them. It's not that they are bad people, they just like to keep things a little less intense.
However people like that tend to be a little unfulfilling in our lives and leave us hungry for more.
So, we turn to the people in our lives that have some depth.Those that are not afraid to scrape the surface and see whats hidden underneath.Those that hit reality head on and season it with gusto and imagination.
Sure, there is nothing wrong with needing 2 or 3 slices of something to feel full. But sometimes isn't it nice to get everything you could possibly want or need all in one slice....
