What's for dinner

It's not beef. That's for sure. Especially not during Lent.

Every year during Lent I give up meat. I do it for a variety of reasons.

Lately my friends and I have been exchanging more ideas for dinner. The boredom of winter cooking is setting in.

Therefore I give to you tonight's dinner plan.

Homemade whole wheat pizza crust topped with homemade tomato sauce, fresh slices of mozzarella, black olives and sauteed mushrooms.

Vegetables from scratch

It is time to start the seeds. To sprout a little hope for the new year. A taste of Summer. My favorite season.

There is nothing to be seen at the moment but promise. The promise of a delicious mortgage lifter tomato (great story behind this one), Hale's Best melon, Jenny Lind Melon, Principe Borghese Roma's, and one other Heirloom that sounded so juicy I couldn't resist.

Last year, I planted too many tomatoes and not enough peppers. This year I hope to have too much of both!

Rye Bread

Today is the day. It took me several weeks to have all of the ingredients plus a day when I could be home to accomplish each of the steps to make rye bread.

One of the blogs I read had a gorgeous picture and recipe a few weeks back. I was inspired.
