Spent the day getting last minute shopping done. Picked up 2 take-n-bake pizzas from Kroger while buying all the stuff for Christmas breakfast and trip plus have to stock up on some things for DS home from school. Tonight is wrapping night then can concentrate on cleaning and cooking over the weekend.

I just started my baking. I did want to go out but I guess it's going to be an eat in night. Just hot dogs and f.f. Did I mention that I absolutely HATE baking cookies but I LOVE eating them.

We have a babysitter & are going out to one of our favorite restaurants on the Island, Villa Rolandi's. (Isla Mujeres Hotel Villa Rolandi) Everything is so good, I don't know what I am going to have but hopefully, I'll have room for their coconut icecream with Kahlua & a flaming Mexican coffee.

YT, my pizza crust turned out better than any crust I have ever made, exponentially better! But the jury is still out, most of the dough is laboring in the frig. I used about 1/3 of the dough, a bit more dough than normal?, it was a thick crust which was what I was aiming for. I am just beginning to use a pizza peal and a pizza stone, I was quite awkward getting the pizza onto the stone. I will be interested in how the dough works out in successive pizzas. The recipe says you can store the dough up to two weeks in the frig. In the past, I have not been pleased with "older dough" being used for pizzas. I am extremely happy with the crust of last nights pizza. I'm thinking if the rest of the dough does not work well for pizzas, I will just make up the round breads, which is supposed to be the original use for this dough.

Clienta, what a beautiful/tropical-looking place; and an amazing view!Everything I like is on the menu. (I'd be hard-pressed to make a decision.) Hope you had a wonderful time. Next time take me with you.

last night we had guests and I did a multi course "Italian" meal. cheeses (including a brie en crut) olives, nuts, and fried calamari (I use my wok...works great and uses so little oil), pasta course was spaghetti rigate with putanesca sauce (my favorite), secundo was broiled shrimp with savory crumb topping (bread crumbs butter garlic parsley) and broccoli rabe sauteed with garlic and sweet onion. several chiantis and a malbec . great meal, fun time.
