We made a pizza on Wednesday night. It's a favorite, and now especially since we learned to make dough ahead of time and freeze it, whipping up a pizza is not that difficult. We had some leftover sauce from VWaV as well as some Basil-Tofu Ricotta. We tried the recipe in Vive! recently for the Basil-Walnut Pesto, and found it to be much more to our liking than the pesto recipe from VWaV. This pizza showcases the last of our basil for the year. The toppings are simply mushrooms and kale. Mmmm...
With that, I'm out again until next Friday. My biggest, ugliest exam of the whole semester and perhaps even of my whole college career is next Thursday night, so I'm going to be devoting much time to that. There will probably be minimal cooking, but no blogging. If I make anything interesting, I'll be sure to catch you up on it soon. This should be my last push until next semester.
Last night we met some friends for dinner at The Grit, our local vegetarian restaurant. Sometime I will have to remember to take my camera when I go! I got the Mid-E platter, which is a small bowl of hummus with veggies and pita points, two falafel fritters served with lemon-tahini dressing, and a nice tabouli salad. I packed up half my meal and brought it home. Bob got the special, which was a Thai coconut curry dumplings dish and it was served with veggie spring rolls and a Szechuan tempeh salad. The Szechuan tempeh was very tasty (you think I didn't eat off his plate?? Hah!) and the flavor of the curry was great. The dumplings were quite heavy, and the coconut milk base was extremely thick and rich. Another meal that came home with us. But it was such a nice time!
Have a great weekend, and send happy thoughts my way! I need them!
