Pizza night! [Apr. 30th, 2010|07:34 pm]

We had pizza a few days ago and it was awesome!

Smoked cheddar and mushroom pizza:

I bought one of the organic crusts from the store and stretched that out onto a pizza pan. I fried the mushrooms in garlic and olive oil while the dough was waiting. I spread some pizza sauce on the dough and then shredded smoked cheddar onto the pizza, covered it with the mushrooms, and shopped up some fresh scallions. Then I baked it for like 20 minutes and BAM! Delicious pizza. Next time I might try it with half smoked cheddar, half mozzarella.

Tortellini with sweet potato sauce was what we had on the menu tonight.

It was super easy. Just a package of tortellini, one sweet potato, three cloves of garlic, a little olive oil, a cup of milk, and my secret blend of spices.

I heated the potato through, let it cool in water, and then chopped and mashed it. While it was cooling I cooked the tortellini over stop top and sauteed the garlic in olive oil. Once everything was done I strained the tortellini and added the garlic to the sweet potato, I mashed it in a little bit and added the milk and then the secret seasoning... (if you must know it was one of the Mrs. Dash spicy seasoning, fresh ground pepper, and just a little salt.) I heated it through until the sauce was warm and served it with a mostly green salad. YUM!

Caramelized Onion Pizza... DELICIOUS

I bought one of those packets of dry pizza dough for like 85 cents and prepared the dough like the packet said. While it was setting for a few minutes, I sauteed the 3 sliced onions in olive oil. When they were nice and golden I added balsamic vinegar, sugar, and salt and cooked it until the liquid was pretty much gone.

While the onions were cooking I spread some store bought pizza sauce on the dough and shredded some mozzarella cheese on top of the sauce. Once the onions were done cooking I spread them out on top of the pizza and baked for about 20 minutes.

If I'm feeling fancy next time I might nix the pizza sauce and try it with a hickory barbecue sauce.



We eat like kings in this house! :)

I love cooking. So I'm going to blog about it. :)

Today I made baked beets and tofu kabobs for dinner. Before you run away screaming "AHHH ATTACK OF THE VEGETARIAN!" Pause.

The beets were incredible. Fresh beets chopped up with onion, mint, garlic, and balsamic vinegar baked to perfection for about forty five minutes. It's definitely a taste that you have to experience for yourself. The mint and the garlic just give it a nice kick without overwhelming each other. For the tofu kabobs I cut the tofu into even squares and cut up some potatoes. I skewered them on wooden skewers and covered them in chipotle and honey barbecue sauce. I broiled them for a few minutes on both sides. For those of you with texture issues *Carol* this might not work so I would bake it if I were you... *Carol* ... because they were perfect.

Served with a glass of sweet tea. And y'all said it would be hard to live in the South as a vegetarian. :)

Happy happy to be a live day! [Feb. 23rd, 2010|06:23 pm]

Five years ago I woke up on this day after being hit by a car (and walking away from it) and I thought "damn... I'm alive and that's great." I thought of all the little things that had been making me stressed and laughed about them, I thought of the kids I worked with, the plans I had, the classes I was taking, the things I hadn't done yet, I thought of the bright little lights that dotted the sky as I rolled across the pavement the night before and how they burned so far away, I thought of everything and I cried.

I cried for the little things, the big things, the unknown things. I cried because the sunrise had never been that beautiful. I had never felt more alive. And I had the black and blue marks to prove it. You know when someone says they feel like they've been hit like a truck? That's what it feels like the morning after. And as much as it hurts, as annoying as it is, it's the most brilliant feeling in the world.

I realized all of the cliche things about life that morning as I lay in my tiny, uncomfortable dorm bed, staring out at the sun rise. Life is short, but not too short so take your time enjoying it. You can't enjoy the wonderful things without the shitty things happening occasionally. Celebrate the little things, celebrate the big things, laugh away the annoying things and bad things.

I know it doesn't seem like it sometimes, but life is great and you can always make it better. So join me today friends, in saying "fuck yeah life! I'm glad to be here!"
