Geezerz at Blue Grasshopper

Geezerz luncheons have moved to Fridays.  Today it was held at the Rio Rancho Blue Grasshopper.

This has great pizza.  Today's were a little undercooked, but still good.  Normally, I get the meatlover's pizza.  Today I tried the Supreme- Pepperoni, spicy sausage, green peppers, and red onions.

Guess my taste buds are getting accustomed to New Mexico food.  I had to add a sprinkle of  dried peppers on the pizza for a little heat.

Normally, I eat half of their large pizza or maybe a slice over 1/2.  This time I was so hungry and the pizza tasted so good, I ended up eating the whole thing, washed down with two large glasses of water and 2 pints of amber ale.

The finished dessert

Usually, I would turn out the "cake" on a cake plate.  I did not sure how well it would hold together, so served it in the bowl.  Both are acceptable Danish ways of serving the dessert.  Top up the dessert with lots of whipped cream and a sprinkle of chopped nuts.  If you want, you can also add some cocktail cherries for some holiday color.

Makings of Danish Apple cake

I headed to my local Smith's Grocery Store for my fixings for my Danish Apple Cake.  I could find everything except for the Zweiback or Melba Toast.  Some folks at the store did not what I was talking about.  Found one of the eldery check-out person that could help me - but noting on the shelves.  Not even sure they make it anymore, I was told.

Over to the bakery - for unseasoned breadcrumbs. They were out and hoping to have a delivery later.  That did not happen.  So the next morning (day before Thanksgiving) check in at the local Walmart (hate to do business there).  They had and sold me a big bag of french bread breadcrumbs.

I have never used french breadcrumbs, but I was desirate.  It was that or I have to slice and dice a loaf or two of white bread.
