Pizza Thursday

Let me start by saying that I feel like that deceitful child that tires of a toy and then later on sees another child playing with that same toy and then further decides that she too would like to play with that same toy again as well.  Coming back from a month long sans-blog posting feels a little bit shameful and hypocritical BUT, I do have to keep in mind that this is my blog; dedicated to my life and sometimes, life just gets a little too busy to keep up with blog posts!

Having said my poor metaphoric excuse, let me re-begin this post by telling you of a photo story of last night's cooking.  Since Thom and I have been busy with work, side projects, events to go to, weddings to shoot and freelancing, we haven't been able to actually sit down together for dinner during the whole past month of July!  ...Or so it seems.

So this past Thursday, Thom and I went out and bought some much needed groceries to fill our very empty refrigerator and as well as the ingredients to make our very own semi-homemade pizza! 

Our small outdoor potted herb garden has been growing successfully this summer, so we had decided to take advantage of the fragrant basil and create our own Italian-style thin crust pizza with cheese, basil and pepperoni.  [Find out about more of my gardening musings here]  Ours was semi-homemade based on the fact that I bought the whole wheat dough and sauce instead of making it and the basil is home-grown if that counts?!

All-in-all, the pizza came out marvelously fresh and was quite tasty.  [More of a comment based from Thom, since I've been getting over a small cold and really can't taste or smell anything but I did enjoy it!]  Even our cat Connor was itching to snag a piece!

More posts to come hopefully for this month!
