Garden Salad, Pepperoni Pizza, and Peach Bellini Floats

Garden Salad

We made a fresh salad with Red-leaf and Butter Lettuces and Arugula from our garden and served it with Italian Salad Dressing made with Red Wine Vinegar and Olive Oil.

 Pepperoni & Onion Pizza
We often like to make home-made Pizza on Friday nights, but the last couple of times, I wasn't really thrilled with the crust, so I've been looking for a new recipe to try.  This week, I used Wolfgang Puck's recipe, and it was perfect!  I have to admit that I'm a bit too spastic to risk working with a pizza stone that's been pre-heated to 500 degrees, so I skipped that step!  But, our pizza was terrific all the same.  We used Rustic Pasta Sauce from Trader Joe's, Pepperoni, thinly sliced onion, and lots of shredded Mozzarella.

Peach Bellini Floats
You may recall the wonderful Peach Ice Cream that we made last weekend.  Well, we decided to turn it into something really special and used it to make these luscious Peach Bellini Floats!

In a tall pitcher, stir together:
12-ounce can Kern's Peach Nectar
4 ounces Creme de Peche Liqueur
1 bottle Chilled Champagne (you can also use Prosecco or sparkling white wine)

Pour into tall glasses over 2 scoops of Peach Ice Cream.
