"Ideas are like pizza dough, made to be tossed around"
I've been making this a LOT lately. The starter dough is easier to whip up than a batch of cookies, is always available, gets better by the day, and is super-economical. In 4 words: It fits my life. In recent weeks I've been working more and have quite a bit going on personally too, making everything more of a juggling act. There are people close to me, that I love, who are going through serious struggles that break my heart, and I want to be available for them as much as I can. Makes it hard to get here as often as I'd like. Not that I've stopped cooking. I'm cooking up a storm! Additionally, my camera has been giving me fits....my laptop went through a couple weeks of constant crashing, until I de-fragged it (that worked wonders.) AND the dish I was prepared to blog about last week (Nicaraguan Arroz con Pollo) was an epic failure (bleh-patooey!) The perfect recipe for blog-neglect. But that brings me back to the pizza dough.
The Italian Dish blog for the recipe, because the post was just so darn great that you should check out the original! Now I'll finish packing for our trip to South Bend to proudly see our son graduate from college. Since the airline dropped us from the last leg of our flight, we are now taking the train, which will take longer, but be WAY more relaxing...and hey! we got a sleeper car. We've never traveled this way before so we're pretty excited about it! Hope to be back here in a week or two.
