Romanza, Sogno & Amore Night Dinner ...


I found out a week ago that some stuffs are a lot cheaper in Amazon.co.uk as compared to Amazon.de.  Books are one and so are Le Creuset wares, selected Brabantia items and these ... Andrea Bocelli CDs which was going for around 16 Euro each on the german sites but costing only GDP4.99 each excluding shipping fee of 3 Euro plus plus!  Since I am such a great fan of this talented singer and my last CD of his was listened too till it gave way, I ordered them straightaway and received them today.  

I was in the mood to prepare us an authentic hardcrust and thin Italian style pizza today after listening to some of his wonderful tracks (love his Amore album too btw).  The crust was made from scratch so ... :-)

Frankly, it is fairly easy thing to do but requires a wee bit time to wait for the dough to rise.  Two cups flour, 3/4 cups warm water, 8 grams yeast, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, some salt and a bit of sugar and that´s it. Mix them with a regular mixer before kneading them manually with your hand for good one minute and then let it rise for 30 minutes, and then flatten it before popping them into the hot oven. 


We had them simply with tomato puree, some local cheese, bacon bits and rocket leaves.  Arrange some rocket leave on top of the pizza before drizzling the top with your favourite olive oil and your meal is ready. It was simple and yummy :-)

Hey, check this girl out. Hubby calls her Barney!!!


Its getting colder so I was in the mood for a little drink ...

Here´s Brombeeren Likor (Blueberries Liquor) with 25% alcohol content ...


We also had a small serving of Banyuls, a French Sweet Wine with about 18% alcohol content which we brought back from our France few months ago while visiting a family member ...


And lastly, the strongest of the lot which we recently brought back from Salzburg ... its called Marillenlikor with 30% alcohol content!  Really great stuff here ...




































With Andrea Bocelli´s tune playing on the background, it was almost perfect except that ... we do need a bottle of Lemoncello to complete the dinner, don´t we? :-p
