A few months ago, Jenya had to give up dairy because her nursing baby (aka Mr. Adorable/Mr. Agreeable) has a milk-protein allergy. To compensate, she invented BLT pizza. Genius!
BLT pizza is made with red sauce and red onion, then grilled, then topped with bacon, lettuce, tomato and chipotle mayonnaise. Jenya and Drew spearheaded the meal and I’m still not sure how they managed to cook 6 pizzas on one normal-sized grill and still get them all on the table hot. But they did.
In addition to BLT pizza we also had: Clam pizza (a la Frank Pepe’s famous) with loads of garlic and a sprinkling of parmesan. Two artichoke and feta pizzas with mozzarella and Drew’s home-grown and home-made arugula-basil pesto. For salad, Drew made kale slaw from his (also home-grown) kale.
Other highlights of the evening included a lifting of Shane’s spirits by way of margaritas, and a dedicated margarita assistant (Rita). And henna tattoos by the talented 13 year old Alicia.
