French-Secret of the Week . . . Entertaining

May 23, 2012

The definition of entertaining in France is gathering with friends and lingering for hours at the dinner table having fun.

I love having people over, but more often than not I’ve found myself missing the party because I was still in the kitchen creating the event.

My parents entertained a lot when I was growing up and it always seemed to happen with little effort. Entertaining was so natural for them that I missed the fact that my mother prepared everything ahead of time. A lesson I’ve since learned!

Here’s what I’m planning for the weekend.

BBQ Pizza

I bought pizza dough at the market and followed the instructions to make small pizzas. As you can see mine was square . . . oh well.

I prepared my toppings, tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, and grilled vegetables I had left over. You can use anything.

I brushed olive oil on the top of the dough and then placed the oiled side of the pizza dough down on the BBQ to let it grill. Once it has grilled so it’s nice and brown I turned the dough over on a board and brushed oil on the uncooked side and placed that side on the BBQ.

I added my toppings and covered the pizza with tin foil to keep the heat in and cook the toppings without burning the pizza.

If you don’t want to use the BBQ, the oven works really well and instead of the pizza dough try using flour tortillas.

I love thin crust pizza that I can let get really crispy. This is perfect!

Look how crispy the crust is!

I added goat cheese on top. Yum!

I’ve never tried these on the BBQ, but I don’t see why they wouldn’t work. Try it and let me know and send pictures!

I’m not sure I have the answer. But having just attended the funeral Mass of someone who was an important part of my life—someone who I felt it was an honor and a privilege to know, I’ve been thinking a lot about that question. Losing someone who has played a significant role in our lives is not easy. I don’t want. . .

THE BEGINNING OF A RELATIONSHIP THAT CHANGED MY LIFE

We were invited to join our good friends Pierre and Ellie to renew their wedding vows. Our instructions were to arrive at dawn. We approached the building through a heavy fog, that sat low to the ground making it hard to see where going. Out of that fog, we heard a voice: “Birds, birds, it’s this way.” We spotted a fanciful silhouette, a man wearing a cloak and a hat . . .

2020 is going to be a good year! Of course, I don’t really know that; it’s just a feeling. But I have a choice: I can be optimistic or pessimistic and I don’t see any reason to start off with negative thoughts. “Choose to be optimistic it feels better.” Dalai Lama For years I’ve started the New Year by setting goals... But last year was different! . . .
