Our Weekend...



Splashing in fountains with Satch!











Gardening in the rain!








Sipping Iced African Rooibos tea!
Baking (and eating) Chocolate Banana tea loaves!
and this pizza (fast, easy, delicious)....

Thin Crust Pizza with Onions, and Ricotta

Olive oil
1 red onion, halved and thinly sliced
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar reduction
2 large flour tortillas
1 cup shredded Asiago cheese (about 2 ounces)
2/3 cup ricotta cheese
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 450°F.

Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in a small sauté pan on medium hight heat. Add the sliced onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions begin to soften. Add the balsamic vinegar reduction, cook for a few more minutes until the onions are thoroughly softened and slightly caramelized. Remove from heat.

Place tortillas on baking sheets and brush with olive oil.

Sprinkle each tortilla with half a cup of shredded Asiago cheese. Add bits of ricotta cheese, 1/3 cup for each tortilla. Sprinkle with caramelized onions. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper.

Place the baking sheets in the oven. Bake until the crust is crisp and brown all over between 5-10 minutes.

Each pizza serves 1..unless you're super hungry.

*Here's how to make balsamic reduction...it's too easy for words and way better than straight up balsamic vinegar. It's thicker, sweeter, has a slightly chocolaty taste and is awesome drizzled on roasted veggies, sandwiches and even fruit. Basically...it's like the poor man's version of THIS! We're addicted to it so now I just reduce the whole dang bottle when I buy balsamic vinegar.

How did you spend your weekend?

I am enjoying watching Satch grow. I can't get over how amazing this blogging thing is. I would have never known you or Satch without it!
