Homemade Pizza With Italy Pancetta And Fresh Mushroom

Wow....this is one delicious pizza that had me for once forget the calories and all.  I intended this for Wild Boar and a veggie and fruit pizza for myself but I could not help it but to take two slices off his whole share....LOL!   The pancetta ( gifted to me by Veronica of Quay Po Cooks ) was crispy aromatic and the homegrown lemon thyme with its lemony aroma is the strong factor that broke my resistance.  The pizza crust was fantastically good and I have been making the crust using the same recipe since I first made them some years back. You can have it crispy thin or the normal Pizza Hut type of pan crust..wonderful isn't it ?  The crust is crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside.  The kind of crust that will not harden once it is cold but anyway, the pizza will not have a chance to harden.  It finished fast and WB asking for more and I told him ..sorry no more for I want to use the balance of the pancetta for other dishes :)

Gari ガリ (Japanese Pickled Ginger)

I have made pickled ginger  many times but this time I finally got the right recipe!  But alas , got the right taste but the ginger slices were a bit thick. I manually cut the ginger thus  the inconsistency of thickness . My mandolin was in bad shape, I have to throw it away....I tried the first piece of ginger and the slices were thick.  I have no choice but to manually slice them :(  at least thinner compared to the earlier ones.   Next item to shop for is a good mandolin...that is for sure coz I am not going to manually slice a kilo of young ginger again !!!  The ginger turned slight pinkish...if only I had them sliced thinly, then the result would be even better. Just the same,  the pickled ginger tasted fantastic !  I saw this recipe on Evan's Kitchen Ramblings and I knew I had to try out her Gari recipe.  Thank you  E'sKR for sharing this recipe.  Simple yet fantastically appetizing !

Stir Fry Salmon And Brown Button Mushrooms

Sorry for not updating my blog with yummy food for almost a month. I have not been well  recently . Had a bad bout of coughing.  I had been taking cough mixture for almost three weeks and that has really robbed me of my appetite.  Thank you for always dropping by though I have not been blogging much :)  Your support is much appreciated.

After having regained my appetite, I made myself this delicious and appetizing meal for myself.  Fresh brown button mushrooms with salmon and the steamed black rice, full of nutrients.  Love this simple to prepare and delicious meal.  I added garden grown organic basils to it.....this definitely add extra flavor to the salmon and shrooms.
