I noticed that this recipe would use up most of the odds and ends from this week so I made it and it was delicious. Now my produce drawer is nearly empty so I can hit the market tonight and fill 'er back up again.
Expect to see more Holly Clegg. I pulled out this cookbook and fell in love all over again. Not every recipe is a winner but as far as 'diet' cookbooks, this is one of my favorites.
I'm making pizza again tonight. I made it last week for the first time in months. It's been nice coming home to take out on Fridays but it's time to do a little belt tightening. I went back to pizza crust recipe from Martha which I just realized (over 3 years later) had an error in it here. It listed too much oil but I fixed it. It's a great crust. I will start using whole wheat again soon but I'm 'easing' the guys back into home cooked pizza.
Question of the Day: What's for dinner tonight?
