I am a very committed wife. And I should be committed too - for being married so many times.
i can’t wait for mine to come fast enough! i love etsy and this find just made my day!
I was given the book Clean Start and vowed with my husband to make every recipe in the book— I am after all on the war path to make our household a clean eating home - thank you Terry! I won’t bore you with the details of every recipe challenge (after all didn’t we all watch that happen in Julie & Julia) but I will report on the first challenge of making Polenta Pizza. I really took this on because I don’t like pizza (I don’t eat dairy or meat) and my husband could probably eat it every day (is that from growing up in NY, or being lazy?! comments welcome!) Anyway, the challenge was in the crust which actually can be prepared days in advance of eatin. I’m never one for letting food sit around, but this is polenta we’re talking about and if you don’t have an agenda for a chilly afternoon waiting for it to cool, harden and crisp-up could work, but for those who pack their schedules, I would suggest an early prep. The key is to getting the thickness just right and I definitely didn’t score a home-run in this department. But three times a charm, right? And the other elements were so fun and easy, I am certainly up for the challenge. Anyway, I made the walnut pesto for a spread rather than a traditional tomato and just loved it. It wasn’t heavy at all, or too flavorful and so easy to do with the Cuisinart (b.w.g.e = best wedding gift ever). On top of the pesto went a sautee of red onion and swiss chard with garlic - the perfect topping. This meal left us feeling full and satisfied, and better than we would from pizza!
