I spent the morning in the garden, transplanting my leek from the greenhouse to one of the garden beds. Then, I called Cindy and Larry, whom we haven't seen in a couple of months and asked if they'd be home this afternoon. They said yes, so I took Mum to Santa Maria for a visit. We had a lovely cup of coffee and chatted for 3 hours. If we had been in Canada, it would have taken a dozen emails to finally land on a date 3-months in the future to accommodate all our schedules. I love that we can pop over without all that fuss and planning.
It was getting late so we said our goodbyes and drove back home. I decided to make soup and pizza for dinner. The soup would aptly be called 'garden vegetable' soup as it was a combination of broccoli, potato, carrot and onion with a bit of jalapeno cheese blended in my VitaMix. Then I made this pizza. The tomato from our garden tasted amazing... I can't describe it, but it actually tasted like a real tomato! So flavourful. I added some red pepper, some seasonings and tangy cheese given to us by Adriana and Roberto. Next time I might be inclined to add some ground beef or chicken, but to be honest, it was pretty darn yummy just as it was.
