Weekend of the comfort foods!

I'm just going to throw in a little extract of what a wonderful weekend that we're having as foodies. I made my own pizza dough! It was amazing. I really thought that it would be much more difficult than it was, but it wasn't. It was delicious. Here are some photos:

They both have homemade tomato sauce and pesto, and goat cheese. One has smoked salmon, capers, lemon and olive oil. The other has mozzarella, parmesan, roasted red peppers, olives. They were so good! We finished off with delicious canollis from Roma, the best italian pastry shop in Little Italy.

The next day, I went to my grandma's house because she was making wonderful polenta. This is ground cornmeal that is cooked with some water and spread on a big wood board on a table. Then you pour homemade tomato sauce with various meats onto it. It's really warm comfort food. My adorable nephew, Kheo, seemed pretty impressed, but he's just starting to eat more solid foods, so his mom wasn't so sure about letting him eat it just yet. Here are some pics of that meal:

I'm very full and happy on this monday morning before heading off to work.
