Hope you all had a fantastic weekend! I had a great weekend full of time with friends, eating (of course), working the Farmer’s Market, soaking in the sun and we finished it off with a night of jazz music and food at the country club. Sunday jazz nights are back, one of my favorite parts of summer! We also had a dog trainer come this weekend to help us with Oto’s aggression on walks. She was a miracle worker, just a few minor changes and its like we have a whole new dog. He’s still just as cute as ever but no longer frustrating the crap out of me on walks, SCORE!
Ok now. Spicy. Sweet. Savory. Pizza. Do I really need to write more other than the fact that this pizza was ridiculously delicious? Pizza is just one of those things that I’m not sure I could ever give up. I try to eat healthy most of the time but sometimes I just was a big piece of cheesy ooey gooey cheesy pizza. This was certainly the case when I made this last week.
I happened to have some Niman Ranch pulled pork on hand so that’s what I used, if you’re feeling adventurous and want to spend an entire day prepping for a pizza, you could make it yourself like this. Then you could make the pizza AND have pulled pork for another meal. The sweetness of the mango and spiciness of the jalapeño was the perfect compliment to the pulled pork. I’m not going to post a recipe, just make a pizza with a thin layer of marinara and top with mozzarella, diced mango, pulled pork & finely diced jalapeño.
WHAT MAKES ME HAPPY:
Fresh strawberries from the Farmer’s Market.
Aren’t they GORG? Don’t worry, I didn’t buy all of them. Although I DO plan on going strawberry picking next weekend so I can make all things strawberry, hold on to your hats!
P.S. – Congrats to my incredibly motivated husband for completing the Trek Across Maine this past weekend, and thank you to all the awesome people who donated and made it possible!
