Foodie Thursday!

Posted in recipe by gwen on June 3, 2010

Some recipes I like that I was telling J. about at coffee yesterday:

Zucchini Crab Cakes. These are super delicious and EASY and healthy except for being fried, but that just makes them that much more tasty. Serve with Creole-style remoulade [there are a million ways to make this; I mix catsup, mayo, seedy mustard, cayenne, and whatever else to taste].

Beer pizza dough. Chad makes this once a week, he rolls out two doughs and we put our own toppings on. Mine usually has some or all of the following: pesto, mushrooms, artichoke hearts, fresh mozz, parmesan, prosciutto, garlic, olives, oregano and basil, red pepper flakes, whatever else is around. Here are some photos from Tuesday’s batch. Do not view on an empty stomach.

There’s an awesome reading of Night Before Christmas in Hemingway style as written by James Thurber on this podcast about 2/3 of the way through:

I love our tree.
