What I Ate: Pesto Pizza

Pizza dough, pesto, goat cheese, fresh tomatoes, caramelized onions, and a grill equates to one delicious end-of-summertime pizza.
If you're a thin crust guy/gal, seriously consider grilling your pizza. Grilling the dough gives it super crisp edges.

What I Ate: Spicy Chicken Sandwich

It's September already. The summer seriously flew by so fast; it's tragic. But I'm incredibly thankful for this three day weekend. It was incredibly lazy and indulgent and I watched a lot of trashy television and yet it was so productive. I blogged a lot. I documented several meals that I'll be sharing here eventually. Blogging is fun for me so it's not like I worked or anything. It was a productive sort of indulgence.

In the spirit of productive indulgence, I'm sharing faux fast food today. I get cravings for greasy burgers and fried chicken sandwiches every so often. I love that red headed chick's spicy chicken sandwich; you know who I'm talking about. I'm a fan of heat and it's kind of rare to find fast food that is spicy so this sandwich is a real favorite.

And even though it would only take a two minute cruise to grab myself one of those sandwiches, I decided to make this at home myself. Why? Because I had all of the ingredients and because I could.
I used my usual fried chicken recipe and method of buttermilk and seasoning except this time I used extra cayenne and black pepper and threw in a few serrano pepper slices to amp up the heat.

Garden Update 5

Having a garden is friggin' awesome, especially when you can pick super fresh cucumbers and make a batch of delicious refrigerator pickles. I whipped up a batch a few weeks ago and they went super quickly because my sister is a pickle freak. Currently there's another batch sitting in the fridge, pickling. We'll probably pop it open this weekend, this glorious three-day weekend.
