Sunday Pizza Party

Today was pizza day , big pizza party day. The fan club got company, a whole family Portuguese friends, five hungry mouths in all. So had my work cut for me.

The day went as follows:

Wake Up
Make Dough
Go to Church
Prepare Toppings
Make Pizza
Eat Pizza

Get the picture? Regimented to say the least.  

We made about eight pizza pies.  We experimented Differents shapes and a variety of freshly prepared toppings. Toppings at my house are usually cooked items, just as sauteed peppers or a fresh tomato salad.

Today I had helpers in both the eating and pizza tossing department. It made a big difference, and definitely added to the fun and emotional reward.

Here is a  samplings of the day's work. Too bad we did not take pictures of the entire process.

All in all, it was a great Sunday.  Wish I had  a few more guests. Next time, I'll call in the reinforcements from the high-school.

Have you done some pizza tossing today ?

So,  with the weatherman telling me that we would have some fairly nice outlooks for this weekend,  I decided to spend less time playing with my computers. My plans included included resuming and catching up with some of my blogging.. You've seen some of that already . But my highlight for the day  was for me and my Queen to head down to Chinatown in NYC.  Our plans: do some food shopping , correction some "window" food shopping and course,  just take in as much we could of the Chinatown scene. Given that Little Italy is also right next door to Chinatown, we would stop there too. If you do not know, Manhattan's Chinatown  nowadays contently fuses with it's Italian neighbors.  Great combo, isn't it ? I sure do think so.

The plan worked out. So do read on.

Paella Experimentation

There are times that I love to experiment just to kill away the boredom. And I get to play the culinary Guinea Pig. Yummy
