Pizza dough recipe was quite easy to make super thin, but it asks for too much salt. I didn't know this until after I made it. The recipe had a note at the bottom which says something about having too much salt in it. Toppings included leftover Italian sausage, bacon and green onion. Next time, to get that crispier crust I'll bake it on a cast iron griddle, since I don't have a pizza stone. I'll also reduce the salt by half.

Crab Cakes & Salad

We had crab cakes over organic mixed greens tossed with balsamic vinaigrette. Louie is pretty good at making crab cakes. It needs a sauce though. I'll put that on my to do list...find a sauce recipe for crab cakes.

B-day Dinner for Me

I got a home cooked eight course meal. Louie wanted to get a goose, but the shop said they ran out, so he got a Muscovy duck instead. His aim was to have every dish made with duck.
#1 Salad dressed with duck fat, cheese and duck cracklings
#2 Duck innards with some sriracha sauce#3 Tuna with tomatoes, cilantro, red onion civiche. I don't think there was any duck in here.
#4 Crostini with duck liver pate
#5 Roasted Brussels sprouts#6 Mushroom risotto with crab topped with some green onions and cheese. He mixed a little bit of duck fat in there to try to keep with the theme. At this point I was getting pretty close to full.
#7 Duck confit with yellow potatoes. I only ate several bites, too full.
#8 Duck breast with balsamic reduction over polenta.
