Best Pizza Evah!

I made the killinist pizza ever today. The dough was perfect!





The month when farmers escape the heat
who will share a dipper of wine
I've set some wild fruits out
and made a circle of cups
with horsetail rushes for mats
and banana leaves as plates
once you're drunk and sitting propped up
Sumeru is just a pea

Friday Night Bok Choy and Dumplings

Made some bok choy and dumpling soup tonight!!! Super good and my stomach just won't stop expanding.




Soup: yellow onion, garlic (3 cloves), water, salt, tomato (at the last second), and baby bok choy
Dumplings: real milk, real butter, flour, baking soda, salt (rolled into a thin string and then cut small)



Plus a fresh and not slimy local greens salad to kick off the summer.
There is something really appealing about hot soup during a heat wave. What's up with that?
