Pizza, again, p. 178

Back in November I made pizza using the dough recipe. This time I used the food processor to make the dough and it was very easy. The dough rose in the fridge for about 24 hours and it was super super stretchy. I could not make it thin out.

Sausage pizza

Our pizzas were bread heavy, but I’m totally okay with that. We topped ours with fresh tomato sauce, sausage, and cheese.

Clayuda, p. 164

Continuing on in our Mexican themed week I made Clayuda, or a Mexican type pizza.

This was so easy to make! Basically you just put your toppings on a tortilla and bake in the oven for a few minutes. The only issue I ran into is that the tortillas stuck to the bottom of my pan. Next time I’ll try putting some aluminum foil on the bottom of the pan before the tortillas.

Not only was it easy, it was also super fast. We were able to make and eat these before church one evening.

Fish Tacos, Two Ways, p. 163

In early May I planned a Mexican themed week around Cinco De Mayo. We love love love Mexican food and I got some beautiful cod from our Fresh Market. The fish was super easy to cook according to these directions.

I put salsa with cheese and fresh avocado on my tacos.

Bryan went simple with cheese, avocado, sour cream, and hot sauce.

Roast Duck, p. 706

We have a local farmer who we get all our meat from. He raises chickens, pigs, cows, ducks, turkeys, and even geese. I purchased my first duck from him and roasted it according to this recipe. It was delicious and Bryan and I have been big fans of duck ever since!

Not the prettiest thing I’ve ever made, but it was delicious.

Mexican Cheese Salsa, p. 24

Hello, there. Sorry for the long absence. I had planned on writing more posts after my last batch, but I got pregnant and was hit with a strong case of morning sickness and writing about food just wasn’t going to happen. I survived morning sickness after 20 weeks, which was really all day sickness. And then I had a baby. The first month I didn’t do much cooking, but I’m happy to say that I’m back to meal planning and cooking. Two weeks ago we started our CSA for the year and I’m leaning heavily on How to Cook Everything and other cookbooks to help me figure out what to do with all our fresh veggies. ¬†I also have a slew of recipes I’ve tried over the last two years that I am going to try to post. So here we go…

I really shouldn’t even count this as completing the recipe because my stupid Kroger didn’t even have the right cheese so I just used mozzerella. Not the same.

Bryan didn’t like it anyway because the tomatoes were too obviously tomatoes. When I make salsa I used canned tomatoes and he doesn’t mind them. But I wanted to give HTCE recipe a try again. Oh well… live and learn.
