You had lost the desire PF? Glad to hear it's back, sounds wonderful.

We have Chili Verde cooking in the Nesco Roaster oven to keep from heating up the house. Good grief, it was in the high 90's out there today.

My dear SousChef sure makes short work of Chili Verde these days..while he chops I cook, and does the clean up to boot. It makes me feel like a Food Network star...

We have lots of grated cheese, chopped onions/cilantro to go on top.

I made Uova da Raviolo - ravioli with an egg yolk inside. A ring of homemade ricotta held the yolk in the center of the pasta. Sauce was pancetta, shallots, white wine & butter.

What's for dinner? PIZZA! 10-11-15

Oooh. That looks so good, Silversage! And from what I understand, fairly difficult to do to keep the yolk nice and runny.

Well, I have to say I am NOT impressed with the no-knead pizza dough. It was so soft that it was a PITA to use even though I used a bunch of extra bench flour. In fact, we ended up making a calzone out of the first pizza we tried to make (spinach, smoked moz, mushrooms) as it stuck to the peel and would just not come off w/o making a major mess. Thank goodness for off-set spatulas. Think I'll go back to making a traditional pizza dough from now on.

We really ended up liking the pizza alla vodka though. I partially (mostly) cooked thinly sliced pancetta and carmelized some onions with some vodka thrown in at the end and allowed to evaporate. I think Craig used the little bit of vodka sauce that was leftover from making the pizza for what he ate of the calzone/pizza.

Well, that's a bummer about your pizza dough, Medtran.
