Spring Break Cooking!
So now that we're on Spring break we've all had a lot more time to cook. Giulia had some people over the other night for some of the best pizza of my life. Of course she made the crust which is always very thin and very crispy. She harvested some treats from the garden to put on top. The final pizzas were:
Roasted red bell pepper and mozzarella with green garlic and basil
Italian ham with crushed pepper flakes and arugula*
Cilantro pesto*, mozzarella
She topped the whole meal off with salted caramel ice cream!
I had her and Dylan over the next night for chicken legs braised in fennel, leeks and white wine with some bloomsdale spinach in butter and lemon, couscous and salad. There was also an oddly textured chocolate mousse tart for dessert.
I'm going to make some chicken stock this afternoon and I look forward to figuring out the menu for our camping trip later this week. For now back to comps....
