This is what passed as a critique of pizza night. The zucchini blossoms and ramps are out at the market these days; or, at least for another week or so. L and I stuffed the blossoms with ramps, a bit more garlic, salt/pepper, and goat cheese. I then did a quick egg wash and pan frying to sort of seal them up nicely into a shape that would hold in the oven. The pizza was a red sauce, smoked mozzarella, a stuffed blossom on each piece (our big rectangular pans end up in eight large pieces), salt and pepper, and finished with grated Manchego. It was damn good. “I would like more blossoms on my pizza,” she says while drinking her New Zealand Cab-Sauv and eating handmade pizza from her couch. We have quiz up tonight – our consistent position seems to be three of four weeks in the top 3 or 4, and one week in 4 down around 9th or 10th. We are coming off a tough one last week so hopefully we’ll respond to the challenge. As a learning (rabbit) experience for all, when a question begins, “What New York City skyscraper…” the answer, regardless of what comes next, is The Empire State Building.

X has gotten one of the raised gardens in and full of the first plants of the Spring – four more to get through this week. Then, sitting near the garden and watching I don’t think

I've relayed the kids’ story and query about our eating habits and the “tax potato”. I will do so tomorrow.
