Don’t know what was wrong with me today, but I seem to have fixed the problem with pizza.
I spent the afternoon on the couch reading. This book is good, but a bit long:
Made myself this bright mocktail for cocktail hour
A coconut water (found these on sale recently and grabbed a few!) with seltzer and cherries
Something was off about it though because it left me feeling nauseous. Either that or sitting on the couch for 3 hours straight.
When we finally got up to prep dinner, I started to feel better.
You can see why!
Matt’s homemade pizza dough! Plus two fun toppings.
The Girl And The Fig!
Pizza #1 – Grilled Veggie Jack
One pizza had grilled eggplant, shrooms and zucchini plus our homemade tomato sauce from last night and a pile of freshly grated jack cheese. Rarely can I get my pizza to have that gooeyness of a restaurant’s pizza and I think grating your own makes a big difference over finely shredded in a bag.
Pizza #2 – Fig + Brie + Grilled Eggplant + Honey + Sea Salt
We split them 50/50 – it was hard to choose a favorite! But the brie + fig was one of my top 5 pizzas ever 😉
On the side I had a simple salad that was rather blah compared to the pizza. I forgive it.
After dinner I regained my self and we went for a lovely hour walk all through the UVA grounds. I love walking on college campuses because you’re always in good company of students. No lonely streets. It’s very energetic. We had lots of discussion about education, our academic pasts and the history of our relationship with the computer. Remember when AIM screen names were all the rage!? I was Koopalicious!!
Turning down the sheets with my book. Happy Labor Day!
