(Guess what! I wrote a post LAST SPRING and forgot to run it! So here it is now! Also, I messed up the scheduling the other day and set it to publish...IN JULY (as in July of this past summer), so if that threw any of you off last week, many apologies and this post obviously wants to time travel or wants to never be posted or I don't know what...)
Julia loves her pizza. And she loves to make pizza. No jokey, she can roll out the pizza dough better than I can. She was so proud of herself the first time she assembled (most of it) herself. We usually get our pizza dough from Trader Joe's, but when there's no time (or I've wasted too much time), I go for naan breads, which is a pizza-making tip I got from my BFF Nigella.
Sometimes I like to pretend that Nigella is my glamorous, beautiful older sister. Sometimes I like to pretend she's my besty and we're going to someday have a grand time playing board games, watching movies and chatting about what's the best kind of bread pudding. (Her ginger-jam bread pudding OF COURSE.) And then we'll giggle and paint each other's toes. Please don't tell me to stop with this fantasy. My life will be a colorless place without this dream.)
Julia thinks that I actually KNOW Nigella, since I talk about her so much. She was really surprised to discover that I am not, in fact, best buddies with Nigella. I'm really surprised about it too!
Pizza is awesome? I just realized I might love Nigella more than Hello Kitty and I'm not sure how to process all of that. Also, my aunty made Julia the little apron she's wearing and isn't she just so cute in it???
