It’s been a crazy weekend. Class all day on Saturday followed by studying and more studying but that didn’t keep me from squeezing in a little kitchen time.
Yesterday afternoon I was treated to a wonderful birthday lunch hosted by my friends Andrew and Michael that featured some amazing food. Somehow they managed to fantastically arrange courses that included all my favorite types of cuisine- Middle Eastern, Italian, and French (I think a little hubby bird told them)
Here was the menu:
On Saturday I took a drive down to Kentucky to visit my Mom and Grandmother. My Mom is providing 24/7 care to my Grandmother and it was my goal this trip to provide a little respite for my Mom.
After the party this weekend I find my house full of leftovers, mostly zucchini, summer squash and a whole tub of cherry tomatoes. I was talking to my friend Liz over Gchat and immediately became overcome with a desire to make pizza with all these veggies. I had Real Housewives of New Jersey on while I was cleaning the kitchen and working in the office so I think their loud, fabulous, super-Italianess might have influenced my craving.
