Here I am with my beautiful grandchildren! Oh how I love love love them! They are adorable and make my heart sing!
Yesterday I decided to make homemade pizza for lunch and I used Lidia Bastianich’s dough recipe. Then I used some stuff I had on hand for toppings…sliced campari tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, fresh basil, and parmesan baked until nice and bubbly. When it came out of the oven I threw on some proscuitto and arugula. This was a great pizza! And then it was still good for breakfast this morning heated up with a poached egg on top! Lidia has several good Italian cookbooks out, a PBS television show, and a new grocery store in NYC called Eataly NYC. Rosanna said this is an amazing store, that you can get anything and everything Italian in this store just as if you were in Italy. When I was in Houston a year ago getting chemo, Ms. Bastianich was signing her cookbooks at my favorite Houston grocery store. I drove like a wild woman – in traffic- to get there before she left! It was cool to meet her. Here is a pic of my rustic margherita pizza with proscuitto and arugula.
Wishing all of you a great week!
