My Kind of Take-Out!

Since we moved to the boonies, I’ve had to learn to make my own pizza.  We used to pick up take-out pizza at least once a week and I miss the convenience.   A trip to the big city usually means I bring something home for dinner that evening.  Yesterday’s trip included a stop at Fresh Market.  They just happened to have caviar in the seafood department, they get it in for the holidays.  We love caviar and haven’t bought it in like 5 years.  The little container was calling my name…  When I got it home, I was surprised to learn that the guy behind the seafood counter doesn’t know the difference between caviar and salmon roe because he charged me just $9 and market it salmon roe.  Oh darn.  Here’s what we had for dinner last night.  Buttercrunch lettuce & spinach salads from the greenhouse with avocado, toast points with smoked salmon, creme fraiche, boiled egg, lobster (in the bowl on the right), Humbolt Fog goat cheese, capers and caviar.  We shared a toffee crunch cupcake (in the back) for dessert.  Who says farmers don’t enjoy fancy food?!

    We ate like that last night too,… though not quite as fancy (no lobster or caviar for us darn it.) The one thing I REALLY miss with country living is city pizza. We have a couple of pizza places near by but they don’t come close to our old favourite pizza joint in the city. The husband is making homemade pizza tonight, which I loves, but it just isn’t the same as a greesy slice from a delish divey pizza place.

    I’d be ultra jealous if I didn’t pick up my own caviar at Freshmarket today too! That spread is amazing. I’m craving avocado now 😀
