Pizza for two, roast veges for twelve…

Another vegetarian dinner for us, involving one of my very favourite things: melted cheese. I made a pizza base following a recipe from Nigella’s How to Be a Domestic Goddess:


Above: The dough, rising on the stove – it is actually covered in glad-wrap but you can hardly see it!

While it was doing its thing, I chopped up parsnips, carrots, onions, and potatoes and roasted them with a little olive oil. I got Tim to grate some cheese (he will, without fail, obligingly do the two kitchen jobs I hate the most – grating cheese and peeling/washing potatoes) and I shmeered some tinned tomatoes onto the pizza base.

Okay, I have a confession to make – there was a LOT of cheese and while it tasted wonderful the photo of the baked pizza looks reeally oily in the photo. A bit like the Bobotie that I wrote about below – not very photogenic but tastes delicious. So, I’m making the executive decision to not post the picture…however, here are the roast veges, which didn’t turn out so badly…


Above: Mmmm….okay so it’s a lot for two but…Tim need his carbs?

Tim, Kieran and I went to Kaiwharawhara today to do some various jobs – Kieran to get his stereo fixed, and Tim and I went to Spotlight for some trouser lining and goldfish chow. While we were there I stopped in to a fruit and vege shop and got a big bunch of the most gloriously scarlet rhubarb which I can’t wait to tinker with! Maybe tomorrow…
