home made pizza.

I have an allergy to something, whatever it is, as soon as i eat it a terribly burning rash breaks out over my cheeks and around my mouth. my suspicion is that it might be tomato based products, one of which goes traditionally on pizza....
so we made an olive oil base under the feta, caramelized onions, red peppers and artichokes!!

Matt's first pie crust

As a tasty way of getting to my heart, as anyone who knows me at all, is probably at least partially through my stomach, my sweetheart made his first pie crust ever and picked apples off a neighbor's tree.

the crust he put in plastic in my fridge and we planned on rolling it out and finishing the pie together, but instead I made a peach custard pie for a party with his amazingly flaky crust.
the apples were later made into a can just feel the love: steamy and spicy!

empty fridge

it has been a few months since I actually went to the store and bought more than one bag of groceries.
I like to go everyday depending on my whims and what my stomach is growling for.
still, out of this empty mess, I made a delicious breakfast of fried eggs over toast and salad.

There is something to be said for presentation. Actually, i find that if the food looks disgusting, no matter how delicious, it will most likely taste worse than the same delicious food prepared with delicacy and care towards the presentation. 

At Broder,  at 2508 SE Clinton, they do both: dish up tasty Danish food that makes your mouth water and your stomach happy with small but perfect portions and the BEST potato pancakes in town, and make your eyes glint with love for the design of the space, and the classic dishware. 

And mostly they make the tastiest bloody mary's in town. I have had 3 of them over the last year, and one was a little too spicy, but they are strong on the alcohol and garnished with housemade pickled cucumbers and golden beets....
perfect for an autumn breakfast.
