Enjoy A Lettuce Free Salad And A Scavenger Pizza..
We have enjoyed a half a cantaloupe (locally called muskmelon!) filled with chicken salad, tuna salad, or shrimp salad for years... Monday night, it was tuna- and it was a big one! White solid Albacore tuna, eggs, mayo, mustard, celery, onions, with lemon pepper made a nice filling for a huge fresh melon!
Tuesday..the best laid plans of mice and men... I was going to do a pizza stone pizza, when I figured out I had no corn meal.. did a pan pizza, with modifications! No bulk sausage- so I used brown and serve links chopped up.. used fresh onions, mushrooms, pepperoni, less Mozzarella and more Parmesan and Romano. The home made sauce was killer, and the from scratch dough rose beautifully! My brother in law was here..bachelor type- he went after it like mad, and went home with left overs!
As I write this, an authentic Irish lamb stew is cooking.... The broth is killer because it "jellied" after simmering! Carrots, onions, celery, potatoes, and lamb will be the real deal- no beef or chicken broth, just a little brown gravy for color..
Come on over- plenty for all!
