Since there were going to be six of us for dinner (our first meal together as a family since my brother and sister-in-law moved back from Chicago!), we decided to make two different pizzas. The first was our version of Pizza Luce's Pizza Athena. We used Trader Joe's whole wheat pizza dough, Classico Spicy Tomato and Pesto pasta sauce, fresh spinach, roma tomatoes, feta cheese, Kalamata olives, artichoke hearts, red onions, and mozzarella. It was enjoyed by all!

Besides being delicious, another great advantage of this cake was it's size. The cake was smaller than most cakes we make. We baked it in an eight-by-eight square baking dish, and there was only one layer. The recipe claims it makes sixteen servings, but we divided it into about nine.
Next weekend we're heading to North Carolina to visit Dack's brother and our sister-in-law. We've been emailing this week about what we're going to do on our visit, and so far, most of our discussion has revolved around what and where we're going to eat. The top item on my list to try this weekend is chicken and waffles. Of course, we'll have to try some barbecue, get some grits, and maybe eat some biscuits...stay tuned!
