Today is a Just Me Day, the kids are at their dad's and I could make myself anything I wanted: risotto, vegetable biryani, pad thai, any one of the countless dishes my kids would not eat if I paid them $20 per bite. But no. Today, I have decreed that it is Pizza, Beer and Chocolate Day.
The chocolate: Lindt & Ghirardelli
The beer: Saranac's 12 Beers of Summer
Here is the Amber Wheat beer.
I had to crop out the hairbrush on the table next to this beer. See?
Now THAT'S "Keeping it real," just like some other mom-blogger out there.
The pizza: my favorite sun-dried tomato, kalamata olive & artichoke pizza topped with feta, mozzarella, parmigiano reggiano, aged asiago and provolone.
Look at the sun dried tomato and the artichoke, crisping up on the edges. See the shapes of the feta chunks pushing up the blanket of melted, browned cheese.
I don't have an adorable, weepy-eyed bassett hound like some other people, but I do have an obnoxious, evil-eyed orange tabby.
Just "Keepin' it Real, folks."Tweet
