Top Chef Finale Night. We have a great standing tradition with our friends/neighbors to have dinner together before watching Top Chef on Wednesday nights. It’s a great chance to try a new recipe, too. Last night was pizza night- dough, sauce, and topping recipes from Joy of Cooking (just the cookbook for a classic like pizza).

Pizza #1: marinara sauce, green peppers, mushrooms, artichokes

Pizza #2: sliced tomatoes, roasted red peppers, feta, fresh basil

The dough was a little, um, doughy, probably due to the lack of a pizza stone, but other than that it was pretty delicious. Taking the advice of Obama to think big, Nathan decided we should invest in not only a pizza stone, but a shared pizza oven as well. Makes sense to me.

Also, finally got to eat the red wine/pear sorbet made last week. Overall it was refreshing, but a little red wine heavy in the beginning, a little pear heavy afterward.

It’s really too bad Carla choked. Lesson learned- trust yourself.
