The day got off to a good start - like a good wife (to be) I took Joe to work, went to the post office and the shops, and was home before 9.30 ready to start all my jobs. Pizza sauce, done. Curry base, done (for a dinner for next weekend - good prep hey?!). Peach and raspberry puree for bellinis, done. Marinated vegetables, done, and pizza dough done, all before 12pm. How very virtuous. I even dragged myself outdoors in the sub-zero temperatures for a run (am I mad?!)
As sometimes happens, unfortunately illness got in the way and Shereef and Steph weren't able to make it. Poor Shereef - get well soon and we'll reorganise for another weekend shortly.
Ho hum. Well it meant that Joe and I were very well treated - home made pizza with marinated chargrilled peppers, courgettes, roasted aubergine and chorizo, and raspberry and peach bellinis - fancy for a Friday night! FYI - my pizza dough recipe is awesome, and totally fool-proof. It makes 3-4 pizzas, is freezable, and makes thin and crispy based pizzas. Let me know if you want the recipe.
