Aimee's homemade pizza pie
It's heaven for me when my wife doesn't work too hard at her professor job, because then I get more of her good cooking.
I'm a decent cook, but I tend to use up the staples that we grow ourselves, and so my own fare is plain and repetitive: pork and beans, lamb curries and chili, mashed potato, fries, bacon and eggs, stewed lamb, ham, pork and beans....
Aimee is much more flavorful. Here we have her homemade pizza dough with homemade pesto and homemade mozarella cheese slices. Only the tomatoes are shop-bought.
This pizza was so good, we ate it all in one sittings.
I say we, Kemosabe.
I mean, I ate it all in one sitting. Aimee had two slices. I ate the rest.
Another recent delight has been strawberry rhubarb-pie.
There should be a Bach "Ode to Rhubarb." If I were king, I'd commission a compose to write one.
