Hello, Little Caesar's! | Back At Indiantown Marina



I had no idea Little Caesar's pizza was so delicious! Why didn’t anyone tell me this before?

After a long day installing our new dinghy davit and doing other boat chores back at Indiantown Marina, the thought of cooking dinner was beyond me. Pizza sounded great. Actually, anything sounded great – as long as I didn’t have to prepare it.

The usual pizza joint that we order from in Indiantown closed down, so we ended up reluctantly ordering from Little Caesar’s.

I’ve had their pizza one other time and thought it was okay, but this time I thought it was <<amazing>>.

I think I’ve figured out why I liked it so much.

1 – I didn’t cook it. 

This one's kind of self-explanatory.

2 – It has a lot of sodium in it. 

Okay, I know, sodium isn't good for you, but when you're hot and dehydrated you need extra salt in your diet, don't you? That's why you should always take a bag of potato chips with you when you go on a long hike. After you climb up a big hill and are dripping with sweat, eat a few chips and you'll feel instantly better. I'm sure there's some sort of scientific study to back up my theory.

3 – It’s the first time we’d eaten out or done takeaway in over two months. 

We cooked all of our meals while we were in the Bahamas. It's one of the ways that we keep our expenditure down so that we can stretch our savings and stay our there cruising longer. {If you're interested, you can find details of how much we spend cruising on our sailboat here.}

Phew, I feel so much better about myself now that I've justified eating Little Caesar's pizza. Plus that box of greasy, salty happiness kind of made up for the fact that we were stuck back at Indiantown Marina instead of cruising in the Bahamas.
 
 
Cruising Log | Monday, 8 May 2017 – Wednesday, 10 May 2017

8 MAY

Made our way to Indiantown Marina. Dingy davit arrived at noon. Spent the afternoon installing the davit, doing laundry and checking our dinghy for leaks. Nautical miles = 12. Engine = 3 hours. Spending = $13.25 (pizza and laundry).

9 MAY
More boat chores. More laundry. Taco Tuesday with crews from S/V Wind Spirit, S/V Blue Wing and S/V Radio Waves. Nautical miles = Nil. Engine = Nil. Spending = $24.25 (tostadas, beer and laundry).

10 MAY
Got ready to head back to the Bahamas. Did some re-provisioning, changed the oil, got water, got gas, got everything ready to go. Then we discovered our water pump needs to be replaced. {Sigh.} Turns out we’re not heading to the Bahamas anytime soon. Nautical miles = Nil. Engine hours = Nil. Spending = Not sure, but there was some on food and gas.

Do you like Little Caesar's pizza? When's the last time you ate out or did takeaway? What did you have?

Internet connection has been really scarce lately while we've been cruising in the Bahamas, so apologies if it takes a while before we're able to respond to your comments and/or visit your blog.

  1. They must have a really good Little Caesars there, because ours is generic and bland. Although after not eating out for two months, anything not cooked by you would taste great.

    1. I think you're right that it was the fact that we hadn't eaten out in so long that made it good. We had one after that and it was just okay.

  2. You are missing one of the most important points of pizza in a box - there's no dishes to do! I haven't had Little Ceasar's for a while, but I'm a big fan of someone else cooking and no one cleaning up!

    1. Such a very important point! Having to do dishes is something I like to avoid as much as possible.

  3. It's been a while since I've eaten Little Caesars, but it pretty good (especially for the price). We ate out was last night and it was awful . . . we should have ordered a pizza!

    1. The price is great - you get a lot for your money.

  4. Those are all good reason why the pizza was so good. It's good pizza anyway. Just saying.

    Welcome home.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

  5. The brain does love a good pizza with all the delicious crust! Can't beat the price, and no dishes!

  6. I think if I'd gone that long without pizza I'd think it was great no matter how it actually tasted! I've actually never had Little Caesar's (someone recently told me it was terrible). I tend to think all pizza is good pizza, though.

    1. I thought it was going to be like Dominoes, which I hate, but it was pretty good for a mass produced type pizza.

  7. Reason 1 does it for me every time!

  8. As a native Detroiter, I remember Little Caesar's opening here. Prior to them, we got our pizza at Italian bakeries or bowling alleys. I like their pizza. Then again, pizza is my favorite food.

    1. I didn't realize Little Caesar's was from Detroit. Pizza is one of my fave foods too.

      Delete
    2. The Ilitch family are quite the big deal in Detroit. They own the Red Wings and the Tigers. Plus the Motor City Casino. All from selling pizza. And, NO, I do not eat it all the time.

  9. I haven't had Little Ceasars for years! Thank you for bringing it back to my attention Ellen. I have been eating out far too frequently though and really like a pizza chain called Minsky's here in KC.

    1. I'll have to keep Minsky's in mind if I ever get to KC :-)

  10. The best food is what's seasoned with hunger.

  11. That pizza has rescued me from many nights of cooking. Inexpensive and relatively tasty, it makes my kids and my wallet happy. Unfortunately for me, when it comes to pizza, I cannot stop eating until it is all gone. When asked how much pizza I would like, the answer is always "all. All the Pizza." I'm weak.

    1. Oh, you've nailed the big problem with pizza. Who can possibly stop while there's still some in the box.
