Late Night Pizza


Somehow the Boy and I had our internal clocks off a bit yesterday, and dinner ended up being at 9:30 p.m. We had planned on pizza for dinner so the dough was ready and rising in the oven, but we had to take a trip to REI first, and then stopped at Whole Foods to get some more pizza fixing and ice cream for him. He loves ice cream and I never have any at my house.

By the time we made it back here, it was almost 9, and then we had to cook the spicy chicken sausage, and build the pizza - pesto, arugula, mushrooms, spicy chicken sausage, small pieces of fresh mozzarella and some crumbled goat cheese. Then when it was done we sprinkled some fresh basil and grated sheep's milk cheese on it. It was fantastic. I had 2 slices, he had 6, and I had another for breakfast.  I usually have shrimp and thinly sliced red onion on my pizza, but he does not like those things so we mixed it up a bit.  

I am making whole wheat bread today. The recipe is from Tomato Blessings and Radish Teachings which is about food and zen. The recipe calls for making a sponge at night (a tiny bit of yeast mixed with flour and water) and the finishing the bread in the morning. But, I started it this morning, and will let the sponge sit for 7 hours and then finish the bread this afternoon. It's second rise is 3-4 hours, so it still won't be done until evening.

I lifted my weights yesterday, and have been doing some stretching. My lower back has been in pain for a few days which I'm sure is from the stress and lack of sit-ups.  And since the stress and anxiety are back under control, and the sit-ups have been resumed, things should be better soon. 

Other meals today:  2 eggs with sauteed mushrooms, zuchhini and thinly sliced asparaugs. Not sure about dinner yet, it depends on when the bread is done.
