Taco Pizza

Okay, I actually came up with the ingredients for this myself so I am proud, even if it is just pizza.  It was restaurant-worthy if I do say so myself. 

Ingredients included: whole wheat pizza dough, salsa, chopped cilantro, lettuce, tomatoes, and chorizo sausage.  The cilantro, lettuce, tomatoes and sausage were all from Fresh Fork Market

I baked the pizza dough a bit before adding the toppings.  I was rushing and added all the toppings, however, I had intended to add the lettuce and tomatoes post-baking.  But it worked out fine.  I just added some more lettuce so it wasn’t all wilted.  My husband and I both agreed that this needs to be repeated!


Fresh fork week #2

I love getting the email that says what we are going to receive in our package for the week.  Really, it is the little things that delight me.  I was psyched to receive these goodies:

1 lb Berkshire chorizo sausage

2 lbs spelt berries

1 lb whole wheat linguini

1 bunch garlic scapes

1 head assorted leaf lettuce

1 quart strawberries

2 lbs hoop house tomatoes 

1 dz brown eggs

I have made 3 meals with this stuff so far.   The first recipe I prepared was a garlic scape pesto.  I found this in Dorie Greenspan’s blog.  I know who Dorie is from my baking blog stalking days.  There was (and maybe still is) a huge group of people who bake something from one of Dorie’s cookbooks. 

Anyway, this pesto was tasty.  Garlicky but not too much so.  I added more  rather than less of the parmesan cheese.  It is a rich pesto and I didn’t want to eat it two nights in a row.  But we froze the other half of the recipe.  This pesto was tossed with half of our whole wheat linguine, and we added some broccoli.  Super yum.  My husband says that Ohio City pasta (which is where the pasta originated) is different and much better than other non-homemade whole wheat pastas.  I did not taste the bitterness you tend to get with boxed whole wheat pastas.

Other recipes coming up soon!
