Weather ~ Mike ~ Picture of the Day ~ Town of Accident ~ Italian Pie ~ National Cheese Day

 

Good 53º clear sunny morning. 
 
Yesterday Mike came over and mowed for me. By then it was already in the 80ºs. 


By the end of the day we topped at 98º.

 
Picture of the Day ... downtown Los Angeles at 7th and Broadway in 1922.... what a mess!! Streetcar, cars, horse-drawn, and pedestrians! 
 

 

Interesting odd town name...

Whether you serve this for brunch or with the big meal, get ready for all sorts of "oohs" and "aahs," 'cause this Italian Pie is really impressive. It's basically a quiche-like pie that's studded with chopped Italian meats. It's an Italian tradition, and a pretty tasty one at that! The best thing about this tasty dish is not it is filling and savory, making it perfect for big and small get-togethers. Your relatives (Italian or not) will love this traditional Italian  meat pie.

 

  • 2 (9-inch) rolled refrigerated pie crusts (from a 14.1-ounce package)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (15-ounce) container ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped ham
  • 1/2 cup chopped genoa salami
  • 1/2 cup chopped pepperoni slices

 

  1. Preheat oven to 325º. Unroll 1 pie crust and place in a 9-inch deep cake pan, pressing crust firmly bottom and up sides of cake pan.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk eggs, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and pepper. Add ricotta and mozzarella cheese; mix well. Stir in ham, salami, and pepperoni until thoroughly combined. Pour into pan, then cover with remaining pie crust and pinch edges together to seal; then, flute. Using a knife, cut 4 (1-inch) slits in top. 
  3. In a small bowl, whisk egg and water. Brush top of crust with egg wash. Bake 55 to 60 minutes or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean and top is golden-brown. Let sit 15 minutes before serving.

All I know. Nuff said. Have a good Friday. Ciao.

Moooove over whiners! June 4th is National Cheese Day! And it does go great with wine!!
An encyclopedia of cheese will cover the alphabet and broaden your vocabulary. It will undoubtedly contain more varieties of cheese than what’s found at the local grocer. Cheese is produced from the pressed curds of milk. The milk can come from cows, buffalo, goats, or sheep. Temperature and aging affect the flavor and texture of the cheese, as well as spices and other seasonings added during the process.
The opportunity to go to a cheese tasting or visit a cheesemonger who is knowledgeable about pairings will improve your enjoyment of the cheese you choose. Does Stilton melt? Can you serve Chévre with a salad? Be sure to ask questions and provide your preferences. Your favorite wine might find a new sidekick. You might discover a smokey spread to go with bruschetta or a tangy cheddar to pack with lunch.
In the United States, a road trip to Wisconsin isn’t out of the question for quality and variety. But, they aren’t the only place to find outstanding flavor and choice. Local delis have selections of domestic and imported cheeses, and independent shops offer a rotating inventory beckoning us to keep visiting to see what’s new.
Excellent as a snack on its own, cheese is also a perfect ingredient in pasta, soups, souffle, and many other recipes. We slap it on a sandwich cold, but why stop there when it can be grilled and melted like this amazing Swiss and Tomato Grilled Cheese recipe.  When company comes to visit, nothing is better than a cheeseball, especially when bacon is added.
Cheese is multinational, too! Every nation in the world has its own variety of cheese. Italy seems to have harnessed the market. They did add it to pizza, and that’s pretty amazing.  Savor the opportunity if you ever have the chance to taste cheeses from around the world. For example, hop on over to Greece. They have this dessert called cheesecake. Delicious!

HOW TO OBSERVE

There are many ways to celebrate National Cheese Day.  Try a new recipe or take a risk and try a type of cheese you’ve never heard of before. Ask for recommendations from friends.
