An Easy Midweek Dinner – Pizza Pie

Whew, what a busy week.  Daughter and family arrive tomorrow and I’m preparing for Saturday’s farmers’ market.   As long as I have a well stocked fridge and freezer I’ll be set for whatever happens.   The most important thing on the agenda is taking a five generation photograph of our family.  My mother was born in 1922 and my great-grandson was born on Valentine’s Day this year and this picture will be something we all treasure.  Cookies made, cakes baked, chickens roasted for salads and sandwiches.  More grocery shopping today, cleaning, bed making and grass mowing  and I’ll be ready.

With so much going on I took the easy, peasy way with last night’s dinner.  Pizza dough and sauce were purchased at the local market and I added a simple topping of mozzarella cheese, diced bacon, sliced red onion, fresh tomatoes and a good sprinkling of fresh herbs.  A simple salad of butter lettuce and frizee with a blue cheese vinaigrette and a cold beer completed the menu.  So easy and so good!

    Having your family visit has me excited for you! I, too, love all the preparation in anticipation of the children arriving for a visit. Hope you have a little time to reflect on the good food prepared and waiting, the guest rooms ready and the lawn neatly trimmed. Enjoy!

    *Drool* I can just close my eyes & imagine all that fresh tomato flavor! Can you believe I’ve NEVER had bacon on a pizza? I have to remedy THAT real quick.

    I grew up in a predominantly Italian neighborhood & LOVED the pizza my best friend’s Mom made. I tasted the EXACT same pizza in Florance, Italy. Never have been able to duplicate it though. I keep trying. 😉

    I bought HUGE sweet onions today to make your potato dish from yesterday’s post. I think we’ll have it tonight with lamb chops on the grill.
    Thanks for ALL the wonderful recipes & inspiration you provide, Cathy. We eat so much more interestingly now, because of you.

I featured it today and want to thank you for stopping by again to share another recipe. I can’t wait to read it! Have a lovely weekend and I hope all things are going well with your new bloggie ‘move’. I’m going to make it shortly and will need to pick your brain about it someday!
