Superlatives Part 2

"Best Dinner Ever" Thursday night was DIY pizza from the Whole Foods squishy bag of raw pizza dough, shredded cheese and premade sauce. We didn't really know what we were doing. The dough was cold rather than the preferred room temperature, I had no cornmeal for the cookie sheets cause I've thrown out most of our old dusty staples since the construction, and the round flat plate shapes we were trying to form with the dough turned out more blobby than anything. I even accidentally turned the oven off in between two batches. BUT. Chewy, yummy, fantastic.

Last Monday, the day we drove home from Michigan, is supposed to be the worst day of the winter, according to the Brits. But we were flying. We drove home through thick flying snow, then on to clear blue skies and the gorgeous Chicago skyline. The next day was Inaugural Day and everything was fine.

We're big on homemade pizza around here. Do you have pizza stone? It helps a lot. Pizza, by James McNair is the best recipe book ever with precise, step-by-step directions for never-fail crusts.
