Been into baking lately. Tonight we had tacos with homemade flour tortillas. They tasted great.

Also been experimenting with homemade pita bread. Itís way easier than I thought it would be and it is crazy satisfying to watch them puff up in the oven.

A week or two ago we were all missing home so I was looking for some type of iconic American food to make for diner, thinking maybe it would help.

I found a recipe that said it was just like Pizza Hut pan pizza, something we never actually eat, but thought it fit the bill nicely. The dough had to rise in the fridge for a full twenty-four hours, so it took a little planning, but I got there. The result? Well it looked right and it tasted just like I remembered it tasting, and sometime in that first bit I remembered why itís been so long since weíve had it.

I think having a cast iron pan wouldíve helped a little, but it was really close to the original.

It was a fun adventure either way, and I think at least the kids enjoyed it a bit. Also let us mix up pizza night a bit.

Local Whole Woods was clearancing out San Marzano tomatoes (normally 6$ a can, down to 2$, woo  ;D).

Now I just need to decide what to make with them. Trying to decide if I'm in a Chicken Parmesan mood, or a Spaghetti and Meatballs mood...

For about the last ... 5 or 6 years?

We're not completely vegetarian. I'll eat some hunted meat once in a while (like maybe once or twice a year we'll end up with some deer, goose, or squirrel) and ethically caught fish, but I don't buy store-bought meat and basically never order a meat dish in a restaurant.

Ah, thatís cool.  I just thought I remembered you postering meat dishes earlier in the thread. Although I donít know how long Ago this thread started.
