An update from Alice and Amy

How many of you have seen a pig in mud?  Yep, that's me today.  NO!  Not the mud part...just the happy part.  There is the obvious gorgeous day outside with a cool breeze blowing enough to offer moments of peace from the black flies.  Birds singing like I've never heard (I say that every May!), crystal clear blue skies, and sun, sun, sun.  Amy planted our peas and is readying the strawberry bed. 

But what's making my heart sing isn't obvious unless you step into the kitchen (you're glad you did, if you stopped by today; and you'll be glad if you stop in tomorrow).  Because these are my prep. days for the pizza class this Saturday.  I mixed six different types of overnight doughs last night.  Today has been pizza paradise here in Alice's Kitchen.  My first batch of dough was shaped into 4 pizzas at 8:00 this morning.  I trialed two different pizza sauces and baked them using 4 unique baking techniques.  I've tasted 4 different brands of imported San Marzano tomatoes.  I've done 4 more batches of dough since this morning, testing stones and steels in 3 different ovens and in every location within each oven.  I've honed my pizza tossing skills and am more adept at coaxing the best out of each type of dough.  Sixteen pizzas down and 2 more to go this afternoon.  Everyone who happened to stop in today left with a smile and a pile of pizza.  Tomorrow I'll trial 5 types of same-day dough, making another dozen pies.  Now THIS is fun!  With Italian opera blaring, the aroma of the pizzas baking, the sun and bird song, and seeing Amy (happy as a lark!) planting food that many of us will enjoy in another month or's more joy than one little heart can bear. 

And on a much different note, Amy's Wing and A Prayer Nursery is looking fantastic.  She'll begin her regular Sunday/Monday hours on May 19th and 20th.  After a long winter, her lovingly-tended plants are ready to fill our hilltowns landscapes with food and shelter for the butterflies and bees.  Stay tuned!
