Old Dog, New Tricks

After almost 100 posts (this is 99), I am really proud to say that I am officially competent in the kitchen.  Most of the past posts were about what “we” cooked, but honestly, JustAwesome was taking the lead and I was running backup/sous chef/dishwasher.

Last night I made some really great pizzas—the dough, the sauce,  the toppings, etc.—all by myself. Generally, I feel shy about cooking for guests, but last night I was rockin’ and rollin,’ baby!! The pizzas were delicious. I also made a caesar-like salad (from the Frankies’ book) with homemade croutons.

I felt a little anxious during the first pizza but once I saw how well it was going, I was able to relax... I should also say that I was beta-testing a pizza app put out by our friends at Pizza A Casa and it was like having Mark Bello in the apartment with me, coaching me along. Greatest App Ever. Fucking awesome.
