Mr. D celebrated another trip around the sun today. Which means he is now as old as me. Yeah, yeah, I know. I robbed the cradle.
For his birthday meal, he requested:
1. Homemade pizza
2. Homemade cherry pie
Rather than make a couple large pizzas, I prepared individual pizza crusts for each person. And made a few extras too.
Mr. D's favorite combo: sausage / green pepper / green olives / mushrooms
I tasted his and it was pretty dadgum good! Just the right amount of each ingredient.
Baby Girl chose to make a margherita pizza.
Olive oil / tomatoes / basil leaves / fresh mozzerella / salt / pepper.
I taste tested this one too. Excellent!
Mike and Nate made some manly meat / cheese / mushroom pizzas. I didn't taste theirs, they were pretty protective of their personal pizzas :)
Made from scratch cherry pie for (late) dessert ....
Yup, I made the crust. I also made the filling using frozen Montmorency cherries that we brought back from Door County, WI last fall.
Not pictured, but still delicious was a sweet pizza that we had no problem finishing off. I just melted some butter and spread it on the slightly baked pizza crust, then sprinkled with brown sugar and cinnamon and baked to warm it up. Out of the oven I drizzled a glaze over it.
Can you imagine it? Oh my. It was so good.
Happy Birthday to my Mr!
