Kathy came out to throw with us tonight. She was having a little bit of trouble with the big bump on her belly, but did quite well considering. She wasn’t able to move too well when we didn’t throw it right to her though…

We received quite a few cherries in our CSA delivery this week. So many that we didn’t think we would eat them before they went bad so we decided to make some pie.
I pitted them all while Kathy made the crust. We make quite a team! This is the first latticed pie that Kathy’s made, and I have to admit it was delicious.
We had some friends over this afternoon to help us eat the two and half pies that we made.
Here is a delightful a la mode piece I had after supper:

A little while back I started making bread and found a no-knead recipe that is simply delightful, with a thick crunchy crust and delicious insides.
Well, I ended up buying the book (My Bread by Jim Lahey—Amazon). I had noticed the section on pizzas and vowed to try them someday. The first attempt last week was such a success that I also made some last night for a special date night with Kathy. Since Kristi is out of town we could give the mushroom pizza a try.
The crust is wonderful and crispy, and the toppings get baked to perfection. The best part is there is no sauce to get in the way of the vegetables or other toppings and no pile of mozzarella to cover every flavor. The veggie recipe calls for some parmesan to be sprinkled over the top, but it leaves the toppings in control of the flavor. Really, I didn’t miss the red sauce and cheese at all!
I have to say this is some of the best pizza I have eaten. We made extra to see how the leftovers reheat.
