Anyone have an exciting Friday? I started mine with another brew from our Just Beer collection…
The Moby D doesn’t have huge flavor but it’s dark, smooth, and malty. A good beer if you plan on having more than one drink or are trying to fit pizza in your stomach as well….
I finally made homemade crust!! I found this recipe for thin crust in my new Best of Food & Wine cookbook from Matt’s parents. It was so easy to make and came out perfect; no more TJ’S dough for me. I’d actually call this a flatbread rather than pizza because the edges were almost as crispy as a cracker. We topped the dough with olive oil, aged white cheddar, fresh figs, sage, and feta cheese and drizzled a bit of balsamic over the top.
The sage really brought out the sweetness of the figs and they both paired nicely with the simplicity of the crust. I heart the pizza concept.
We had to eat pretty quickly, because the concert we attended began on the early side. I went to see Ra Ra Riot , a group I started listening to because a good friend’s boyfriend does all the sound stuff for the band. Matt and I fell in love with their music when we saw them in concert two years ago, and we try to go see them whenever they come to town. These guys are incredible musicians and the singer has a beautiful voice; I also like cats, so I find this hilarious:
