shake your booty friday and a recipe

By Friday, April 05, 2013 , ,

Since it's my sweet Pickle's 5th birthday, here's a little ditty to get your weekend going.

p.s Happy Birthday, Pickle. I love you. You are my sweet, sweet boy and you amaze me everyday with your wit and charm and funny personality. I'm so proud of how you're growing. xoxo.

p.p.s We're heading to Rhys's favorite place for dinner, Pizza Brutta, but you can re-create their pizza margarita at home with this recipe I highlighted a little while ago. Serve it with this family favorite:

Fennel and Apple Slaw ala Pizza Bianca
serves 4 hungry bambini

1 teaspoon white wine or champagne vinegar
1 teaspoon maple syrup
big pinch of kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper
4 tablespoons toasted walnut or hazelnut oil

1 fennel bulb, cored and shave
1 tart, crisp apple, cut into matchsticks 
1/4 cup toasted walnuts or candied walnuts
fennel fronds for garnish

In a large serving bowl, add the first 4 ingredients. Whisk to combine, then slowly add the oil. Whisk until emulsified. Taste and adjust as needed.

Add the fennel, apple and walnuts; toss to combine. Garnish with the fluffy fennel tops.


Happy eating, -s.
