Pizza with dandelion greens, bacon, scallions and lemon – 14 December 2014

main141214Lots of happy dandelions in the front yard, and we also had bacon, so I decided to make this pizza. We went to the Bowl to pick up some scallions (had only 2) and other things, including an EQ stash of cat food, and more lemons. The Bowl has pesticide free lemons, which are a good deal. This is based on an entirely different recipe for savory pancakes by Georgeanne Brennan. The recipe setting141214I used for this pizza is close to the one here, except that I tossed the dandelion greens (washed, stemmed, cut into short lengths, and rewashed, then spun and left to dry on a towel) with a dressing of 2 tsp lemon juice and 2 tsp olive oil, with a bit of salt and pepper, topped the mostly-cooked pizza with them, and cooked another 1 min to wilt the greens.


D found a Kim Crawford Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc from Costco in the cellar, and we enjoyed that with the meal. This Marlborough seems a bit … heavier? … than the others we’re used to. that doesn’t necessarily make it better, and it’s more expensive, even at Costco being $12.79. The heater came on and I’m overly toasty, but it just clicked, so it’s turning off. I’ll probably run off to bed now, since I have to get up by 6 tomorrow 😦




lunchmain141214We worked on using up the ham a bit as I recall (adding this lunch bit on the 30th!) and had ham and some cheese in pressed sandwiches, using Semifreddi ciabatta. I’m betting this is the day we used up the chunk of Fontina Valle d’Aosta. Maybe the rest of the bunch of kale on the side, boiled 5ish minutes in salted water. We also had the rest of the Pepperwood Semillon.
