We are complete Harry Potter geeks. We have all the movies, all the books......So, I had a giggle this morning when our "Lestrange" sisters came into the parlor next to each other. We also have a Nymphadora, Andromeda, & Hermione wondering around. (hey, when you are searching for cow names, you use whatever inspiration comes to you & they are cool names that we won't get confused!).
I also tried to use up what I had in the frig tonite to make a BLT pizza with all the fresh ingredients available. I was a little heavy-handed with the salt, but it is still pretty good! (at least Brent ate half of it & didn't complain). And, it incorporates both pork & dairy, so ENJOY!
Cut up tomatoes. Add some balsamic vinegar, garlic, salt & pepper. Cook off in 350 deg oven for 15 minutes. While tomatoes are cooking, coat a pizza crust with olive oil & parmesan cheese (grated or shredded), and cook bacon in microwave. When tomatoes are hot, add diced up lettuce (lettuce should wilt when added). Spread tomato & lettuce mixture over crust, add bacon, and cheese (mozzerella or provolone, something that will melt). Add fresh basil. Cook for 10-15 minutes, just until cheese is melted.
We are using this time to catch up on house/office work, because it is just ICKY outside, and will be all week. Brent & his dad got lots of fans mounted in the barn today though, so that hopefully, we can get the cows a little more comfort in all this heat!
