Spinach

Spinach"Spike," Dawn whispered in his ear. "I don't like spinach." She'd been quite worried when she'd heard Wolf raving about the Turkish pizza that included spinach as its main topping.

"Pides tend to be a lot smaller than pizzas, so Wolf will get lots of different kinds. There'll be eggplant and fetta." Dawn wasn't looking any more pleased at this revelation, so he put her out of her misery. "I'm sure there'll be meat ones too."

"Okay, as long as there's something familiar to fall back on."

"But don't forget, everything tastes good when you put it on a pizza."

Damn it! Hungry -- again. I have to stop reading these in the morning when I have to wait an hour after my meds before I can even nibble on something. Spinach on pizza sounds delicious to me, but hey, Dawn's got her meatzza to fall back on and that sounds good too. Love the "foodie" turn here - nothing attracts like food or sex.

As much of a carnivore as I am, I have to go for the vegetarian pides every time. They contain everything I don't like and yet taste so good.

Must find pide place near work. I need a spinach pide.

From a girl who eats salami and peanut butter sandwiches, you think she'd have more of a culinary sense of adventure. But hey, if she's not eating it, send it my way; sounds absolutely delicious. >_>

Yeah, but Dawn's experimental cooking leans more towards crap and junk food than real food. Those green leafy things can be scary.

Hee! Dawn is a picky eater? The girl who made peanut-butter-and-banana quesadillas?

Well, actually, I can't really say anything. When I was little, I used to want ketchup on everything! I grew out of that!

Very cute and clever take on the challenge!

Dawn's weird food thing was more mixing the familiar than true experimenting. There was no mention of scary alien objects like spinach or eggplant.

Very good point!

Man, you're just trying to make your readers go out and splurge on local restaurants, aren't you?

Very cute interaction between Spike and Dawn.

I get a retainer from the local restaurants, but don't tell anyone (if only).

Not that it would do any good as nobody reading this lives in Sydney, if they did, I would relocate the story here and name the eateries.

Well, I've never had spinach on pizza before, but you make it sound appetizing—like it's something I should definitely try. *laughs*

A pide is slightly different to a pizza. They're smaller and have fewer toppings, but they taste amazing. Worth checking out if there are any Lebanese or Turkish restaurants in your area.

Very lighthearted and entertaining. (I have a strange sort of sadness because I no longer share Dawn's name.)

I kind of miss seeing your Dawn icons too.
