Something For the Foodies

My favorite thing to make at home is pizza, usually grilled. Yesterday I made margherita pizza in the oven and earlier in the week I made a spring vegetable risotto.

Both use herbs (mint, parsley and basil) that I grow in my garden. Ok. When I say garden, I mean the front corner of my yard along the sidewalk. It gets the most sun! There, I also have thyme, sage, Greek oregano, rosemary, two kinds of mint (mama likes her mojitos) and dill.

If you like pizza and wine, the June 30 Wine Spectator is a fun read. It covers the origin of and different kinds of pizza. Plus, it matches up some nice bottles.
