Any Excuse

As you will soon see...we use any excuse we can around here to make pizza. I have been making pizza dough for 30+ years..I started making it in high school. And I have never stopped. I sometimes wonder to myself..is this the one millionth time and I don't even know it. ( I think about that when I buy cat food too..is it the 10 millionth can and I don't even know it) ! Pizza is my favorite food, my "last meal" "the ship is sinking", "stranded on a desert island and can only have one food" food. So tonight, in honor of the last quarter of the August moon..we will be having pizza. Last night at the party my sister-in-law brought a basil plant for my brother, and as they are gone camping for a while, I am "babysitting". Which means..lucky for me...fresh basil on the pizza..with some of the leftover fresh mozzarella(bought too much..Oh, darn) and some fontina I got at a fancy cheese shop that I have been sandbagging until the moment was right. And tonight...the moment is right.


  1. Karen, what a joy it was to read your comment just now! I swear, it was just as nice as opening my mail box and seeing a neat white envelope with pretty writing adressed to me...what a pleasant surprise!
    When I read your list of 'Interests' I knew you were right, we're bound to be kindred spirits!
    And your response to my blog made me sure about something Susan once said: If you make something you love, there is bound to be someone out there who will love it too!
    So happy to have found you...catch you around the blogs!
    xo Dawn

  2. ...oops, in my comment before I called you Karen instead of Kary, hope you'll forgive the slip, just got back from a jog and I'm a bit low blood sugar! :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by. I appreciate all your kind comments more than you can know.
