After a long day of travel and visiting I came home to my loves who missed me and a tired husband. While the farm boys took naps the farm girls made dinner. Pizza sounded easy and quick enough so I threw the dough together to rise, cooked some mushrooms, onions, garlic, & peppers up and we were well on our way.
While the dough did it’s rising and the veggies their sauteing I tried to get a picture of my helper.
the sticking out of the tongue was actually my idea … silly Mama
You might wonder if the girl has anything else to wear besides that same sweater. What can I say?, she LOVES it. It can be buried deep in the laundry basket and she will find it. I figure there are worse things that I could have to deal with than a 2-year-old who loves a cute sweater … dirty or not.
Hey, I thought this post was about pizza? Oh yeah right. So the dough for the crust rose great. As I was shaping it a bit before I placed it on the hot stone I could see a heart taking shape. It was then and only then that I had the inspiration for a St. Valentines Day pizza night. If I would have thought about it before hand I would have warmed up the round stones. But it still worked out ok and it only took about 12 seconds to make the heart shapes.
I thought they were awesome. And well, they were.
Peppers, onion, garlic, extra sauce & cheese just barely melted for the Mr.
Mushroom, little sauce & cheese nice and brown for the Mrs.
We started making two pizzas at a time when I realized how nice it was to have a bunch of leftover pizza in the fridge with very little extra effort.
Needless to say dinner was a success.
Happy early St. Valentines Day to us!
