14. Fun Food Friday

I’ve decided to share some of my favorite things with you, even though they’re not necessarily related to homeschooling. Well, in my life, it ALL relates to homeschooling one way or another.

In this case, we’re talking food. I love to cook and bake, and I’m making sure the kids can do both. More on that in another post. For now, let’s focus on what matters…pizza! Probably my all-time favorite food. This is one I made this week with my homemade sourdough crust.

Since I live in the San Francisco area I figured I better make some sourdough, right? I do bread, English muffins, pancakes, and waffles. But, pizza dough is by far my favorite use for my starter.

I try to make the pizza as homemade as possible. This one had jalapeños (nowhere near hot enough yet), basil, and parsley from my garden. Later in the summer, I’ll add tomatoes to that list.

I tried to make the mozzarella once, but it flopped. It ended up being a waste of many gallons of local, organic, grass-fed milk (a.k.a. $), so I have yet to attempt it again. But, I feel the need to perfect it coming on lately. We’ll see…

    Your pizza sounds and looks delicious! I find the “home grown” and “made from scratch” concept applied to almost all your ingredients, makes cooking a very thought through and overall complete art and science.
    Evermore important and precious today, as food habits are at their worst for the majority of us.

    This a wonderful example. Thanks for sharing!

      Thanks, Sophie! Thanks for stopping by, too.

      I thought of you about half an hour ago, in fact. I was at the store buying a bar of chocolate for my baking (since I used up what you gave me). It won’t be the same. But, oh well… 😢
