Playdate #7 and making pizza from scratch

Making pizza from scratch


Making pizza from scratch? I couldn't imagine doing it, even a couple of years ago. But it was the most fun I have had in a while. Even the kids made their own pizzas and gobbled it all down, while the adults waited for theirs in the kitchen.

The playdate was overdue, so when Nicole suggested a pizza party I heartily agreed. We selected New York Times Roberta's pizza dough recipe and we each made a batch of dough. The recipe called for making the dough overnight and letting it rise in the fridge.

Neither of us had time to make it the day before, so we put the dough together in the morning and let it rise through the day outside. It was soft and perfect for all the pizzas we made - mozzarella, BBQ chicken, spinach and egg and veggie overload.

Since then, we both have made a couple of batches of the dough again on popular demand.

The mix of 00 flour and all purpose flour threw me off. But Nicole was gracious to drop it off. I wouldn't have found it.

Trying out Blue Apron - A review

I have been reading about the new trend of meal delivery service pre-portioned with all the ingredients and was curious to try one out. So when a friend gave us a coupon to try Blue Apron, we heartily agreed. And here is what I thought of it.

Before I begin, this is NOT a paid review.

We signed up for two meals for four priced at around $69.99.

A Primer:

Blue Apron, is a nation wide food delivery service that sends pre-portioned meals with recipe cards and all the ingredients. They post their menu in advance so you can choose your meals.

We ordered:
  • Oven roasted chicken and mixed mushrooms
  • Catfish piccata with linguine and spinach
