We Do Love Pizza

Was that pizza last Sunday a fluke? Well, one way to find out is making it again! Even made it in the heart shape.

One pie was onion, pancetta and bacon, guess who's pie that was. 
And the other was hot and sweet peppers, artichoke hearts and olives. Both had Mozzarella and Parmigiana cheese. They were both delicious. So we will be making our pizzas using this recipe from this day forward.

Being Sunday I had to do some bread baking. Kept it simple and used the 18 hour recipe. This is a no fail bread.

Last night we ate dinner with Lenore and Ralph. Ralph has a few fig trees that he got from my Dad. They were small and probably in coffee cans he received them. Last night Ralph gave me a bag with some figs from these trees.
This is the stuff that dreams are made of. As I bit into the fig I was back in my parent's yard standing next to my Dad who was waiting to see if I liked the fig. It was delicious and perfectly ripe. A lovely food memory.

Sitting here enjoying your wonderful blog, thinking about my own mother and grandmother, and our fun times cooking together.

Then, I see you're from Madison. We are from Racine, and my whole family went to UW. Such a small world.

Keep cooking with love!

Amy, thank you for visiting and glad you enjoy the blog. We are from CT. I have visited Wisconsin, it is a beautiful state. Went to Milwaukee and the Wisconsin Dells. I had an amazing meal there. It was at a German restaurant whose name I can not remember, it was a while ago...
