Super Saturday ~ May 5, 2012

Today is of course Cinqo de Mayo. In Sonoma County there are a myriad of celebrations as well as the Human Race and the Wine Country Century bicycle tour. It's one of those weekends to stay off the roads and out of civilization. Delighted with the prospect of no promises to keep we split the day between working in the garden and reading on the front porch. Tonight will be grand for viewing the Super Moon. We'll get out the lawn chairs and maybe the spotting scope for a close up. 

This, however, is about a moon of a different kind. Earlier this week I made several batches of Cilantro Pesto and we were lucky enough to score some of our friend Nancy's outstanding sour dough pizza dough. Chef Boy outdid himself, this little puppy's just about ready for the oven. The combo includes cilantro pesto, red bell peppers, portobello mushrooms, green onions and shredded sharp provolone cheese. Oh Baby!

Tomorrow the top of the hill gang gather's here for a late afternoon BBQ to meet our new neighbors. We always do it pot luck and the list of goodies is impressive. We may need the Garden Way carts to get everyone home. Enjoy your weekend and be safe out there.
