    SUCCESS with the clay oven!

  • Monday, July 21, 2008

  • So last night I had my 'locavore dinner club' over and I tried out our outdoor clay oven. This was built many moons ago by some wonderful owners/gardeners using the clay from a nearby lake! Anyhow, although it looks abit 'rough' it worked like a charm. We had delicious pizzas: artichoke and sausage; and pesto/queso blanco/mozarella.

    ONIONS are in!

  • Check out my garden helper, Katie. She plucked out our lovely onions!
