Borrowing from Others

After weeks of not making an entry, I should be ashamed to just give you a link to someone else's blog, but Rebekah Teal over at Rumor Has It, has a great idea for using scapes.

Don't know what scapes are? Neither did I. Go see.

Win Some... Lose Some

My poor husband. He's very good about eating whatever I fix, and generally liking most of it. But the other night he was reduced to complimenting just specific parts: "Great pizza dough..." "Good anchovies..."

His mother must have taught him to not say anything, if you can't find something nice to say. So he pointedly said nothing about the pizza topping (except for the anchovies).

What can I say? I had to use up my veggies, didn't I? And it really wasn't that bad - just different.

First, I sprinkled some grated Manchego cheese on the bread. Then I sauteed the following and spread it on top of the cheese:

2 spring onions
2 green garlic stalks
About 2 cups of sugar snap peas, chopped

I added a little salt, pepper, and thyme. I threw the anchovies on top, 'cause I know DH really likes 'em. I knew he'd need some encouragement.

I thought it tasted pretty good. But yeah. It was a little strange.
