Almost Pizza

Recently I mentioned LaLa’s pita bread pizza recipe. In my book, it’s a recipe. There is food preparation, and cooking. In my book, it’s actually one of my more complicated recipes, since it involves chopping. But in LaLa’s world – a complex place with difficult culinary creations – it’s ALMOST a recipe.

It’s pretty good pizza, regardless. So, voila.

She manages to use at least two words I don’t know in this post. That’s VERY common with us. She’ll be talking, and throwing out weird words I don’t recognize and sometimes I”ll stop her and ask for a definition. Usually not, because she can ALWAYS give you a definition. (i can’t define anything when asked) So the other approach is to just nod and smile and remind myself that it is so fortunate that my self esteem does not hinge upon my vocabulary. Or upon hers. So go read the pizza almost-recipe, and if there are unfamiliar words, just nod and smile.

And if you have no idea what words I don’t understand, just don’t tell me.

You know, a lot of times I read you in my feeder and don’t click over here, but every single time I do, I think that you have the prettiest blog I have ever seen.

Anyway, I like the pizza, I do think it qualifies as a recipe, and I’m guessing that the words stumping you are the types of cheese she mentions. Because one of them sounds like a backyard game and not cheese at all.

I’m with Kelli. I’m guessing it was the cheese words. Without context I would have thought that bocconcini was some kind of backyard game too. Probably one played by Italians on grand lawns dotted with olive trees and grape vines. Did I mention that Balderdash is one of my favorite games? Made-up definitions are so much more fun than the real ones.

You know, I’ve never used bocconcini to play lawn games but they are round so I bet it might work!

Our dad’s favorite made up definition for all such games is ‘small African deer.’ You’d be surprised how often that sounds convincing.

Sounds like a receipe to me.

Hey…I am Italian cheese lover and I never heard of either one.
