The Weeklies #3 - Better Late than Never Edition

The Weekly Read: Mockingjay. DH and I finished Catching Fire and are on the third and final book of the Hunger Games trilogy. I've been surprised by a couple plot twists, which is always enjoyable. I'm interested to see how it ends!

I have a second book on the go: Kosher Nation, which is about the kosher food industry. I have some strong feelings about this topic, which I won't go into now.  I'd definitely need a dedicated blog post for this one.

The Weekly 'Za:  DH and I have two Sunday traditions.  He always makes pancakes for breakfast and together, we make pizza for dinner.  DH makes the crust (gluten-free because I'm celiac).  We tried several recipes until we found the one we liked best.  I actually don't know if my hubby makes the thick or thin crust, but the recipe is in Elizabeth Barbone's Easy Gluten-Free Baking.  As an aside, this is my go-to GF cookbook for all baked goods.  It has yet to let me down.

My job is making sauce (crushed tomatoes, sweet chili sauce, onions, garlic, cumin, pepper, lemon juice, honey and sometimes olive juice or red wine if I have either on hand), cutting up the veggies and assembly.

This week's pizza had zucchini, orange peppers, mushrooms, olives, cheddar and Parmesan and it was delicious, despite the fact that I should have left the crust in to bake for about three minutes longer.

The Weekly Milestone:  Pumpkin is full-on grabbing his Winkle toy and gumming it.  So cute!  We also bought a wide mirror for him and he LOVES looking at himself in it.  Major score, as it allows Mommy to get some blogging done!

  1. I'd like to hear about Kosher Nation, please. Also an area about which I have strong feelings, but don't have the patience to articulate them.
