throwing away....

...my other pizza recipes!  I know, always tinkering in the kitchen, right?  And recently, going gluten free!  I was flipping through my new cookbook GLUTEN FREE ON A SHOESTRING which is also a blog, and saw "polenta pizza".  Polenta is cornmeal boiled first then baked, for a funky cornbread.  It is simple.  It is also massively tasty as a side dish on your dinner plate...and it turns out, a PERFECT PIZZA!  As a matter of fact, it is pretty much the base for original Chicago Deep Dish pizza.  The recipe is here.  The only thing I did differently was use my skillet and bake longer than she suggests!

In other news, I came out of the store and HUGE thunderclouds were gathering and the radio warned of terrible rains coming...and I had a couple days pots back home drying on the back deck!  Rain would turn them to mush and I was ten miles from home!  I raced home, blowing through ten red lights, driving 75 (explain that one to the state troopers "I need to get home and get the drying POTs of my back porch") until I got behind an elderly neighbor whom I tailgated (I know, bad karma, right?) but still made it home as drops first started coming in buckets, and got it all in...you can see rain streaks on these pots that are mostly dry... no damage :) and no ticket! Or accident, actually....sheesh!

Finally, of course, I had sooo many dog walk jobs Thursday, including Nook at Cascadilla Falls (what a PLACE, huh?  A cool Eden on a hot day!) and Yogi came over to...play with my cat Spike :)
Have an awesome weekend!

Well saved! You know, you gotta do what you gotta do to protect your pots.

I think having pots-plural made it easier to explain to the police. "Pot" drying on the deck would be a very suspicious excuse for speeding!

The falls look so lovely and refreshing.
