Today (Well, yesterday) I Made: Pizza!

Friends from L.A. were visiting, and wanted a pizza night, specifically they were craving a taste memory of a pizza joint that used to be frequented in Savannah, GA called the Mellow Mushroom (a chain that I personally have never tried before), and a pizza they used to have called the "Magical Mystery Tour."

Magical Mystery Tour Remix:
Herbed crust (unfortunately not home-made this time, purchased from Trader Joe's, which has decent pizza dough)
Creamy Basil Pesto sauce, Shiitake Mushrooms, Jalapenos, Spinach, Feta, "Italian" cheese blend, topped with green onion post-bake.

Came out bloody amazing, and I'll be keeping it in mind when I plan pizzas in the future. Also made a more standard pizza alongside: standard crust, tomato sauce, red onion, bell pepper, bacon, "italian" cheese blend.

Today I made a mess.

Really. Raw egg, cherry smoothie, molten chocolate, quark drips, ghee and whatever the heck else has gone everywhere. Cleaning the oven is not going to be easy either.

I think it turned out really well,
really quite surprisingly well
considering that when I started the next one
I found two too many eggs in the fridge.
Oh, Willie McBride, it was all done in vain.

That mess really looks like a cake of some sort.

Cooked some chicken thighs and legs sous-vide, then finished them on the grill with some nice sticky bbq sauce I made up for ribs last week. Roasted corn on the cob on the grill too.

Made a low carb cheesecake, chakalaka bread and homemade salsa for having my colleagues over for a braai last night. Forgot to get the salsa out but the rest was real good, and now I have more salsa for me.

Double thick pork chops stuffed with spinach and cheese. The filling exploded out of them because I didn’t cut the pockets correctly, but it just made for a crispy spinachy crust.

The other day I made Smitten Kitchen's spaghetti pie which turned out really great. I added the broccoli we got in our CSA in addition to some broccoli rabe I got. One of those (guessing the rabe but not sure) had a lot of worms in it that I kept fishing out. I'm... 98% certain I got all of them. Extra protein if not, I guess.

I also made another batch of granola and actually followed the proportion instructions this time, and it ended up much more cluster-y, so I was pleased. And the amount was enough to pretty much fill up our granola container, so I'll try to keep doing that in the future. The recipe was basically mix liquids together - 0.5 cup oil, 0.5 cup honey, 1/3 cup brown sugar, 1 tbsp vanilla extract, 0.5 tsp salt. Add 5 cups oats, 3 cups "other" (nuts, seeds, dried fruit). Spread and firmly press in a baking sheet and bake at 325 F for half an hour, rotating the pan once. Take out, let cool for an hour or so, then break up into pieces.

I'm mostly writing this down so I can find it if I need to in the future.
