New Years always brings resolutions and mine is to keep up with the blogging.
Things happening in life here;
We have started a local supper club with friends in Bastrop. This came about after my comment of "I don't want to spend money going out to eat and have bad food anymore"....wallah,,,,,everyone was anxious to get on board. We had homemade pizza night for the first one, I made the Neopolitan Style Pizza Dough from my sister Marjorie's little cookbook she made for the 'fam' one Chrismas. We had bowls of a variety of pizza toppings. I have a pizza stone and a pizza paddle which made everyone feel like they were pizza making pros.
All to the tunes of The Italian Cafe by Putamayo
Neapolitan Style Pizza Dough
1 teaspoon yeast
1 and 1/4 cup warm water
2 teaspoon salt
3-4 cups flour (sometimes I start with 1 cup of whole wheat flour)
Dissolve yeast in water, stir in 1 cup of flour and salt, then stir in remaining flour to make a stiff dough. Move dough to counter and knead adding more flour until smooth. Put in an oiled bowl, turning the dough over one time so the top is oiled, cover with plastic wrap and towel and let rise in a warm place at least 1 1/2 hours. You can let this rise as long as you want.
This will make two pizzas.
The next Supper Club is tomorrow night; Everything is going to be chocolate. Appetizers, Salads, Side Dishes, Main Course and of course Desserts.
How about some Youngs Double Chocolate Stout.
Chocolate goes with anything right???
After 2-3 weeks of below average freezing weather,,,,all garden plants are dead, and broken water pipes all over the state. This week we will be gifted with temps in the 70's so we can assess the overall damage a bit more. Weather here is "RANDOM AND QUITE A SITUATION", best to just go with it....
