I love the fact that Doc points out how we can make our own future. I think the Back to the Future movies are universal in appeal! This movie highlights the wild west and seemed to fit with my pizza. I live in the southwest so my family loves spicy southwestern pizzas. It is a great way to utilize the items from the Mexican pack add-on from Bountiful Baskets.
Jennifer Parker: Dr. Brown, I brought this note back from the future and now it’s erased.
Doc: Of course it’s erased.
Jennifer Parker: But what does that mean?
Doc: It means your future hasn’t been written yet. No one’s has. Your future is whatever you make it. So make it a good one, both of you.
