About this photo: My dough is not living.
This is my first of two failed attempts at pizza dough today. A friend gave me a starter named Gertrude, seen above in the pasta sauce jar, and I had delusions of grandeur of being able to create a delicious pizza from scratch to woo Mr. Husband.
Notes to self:
- Do not try to make any baked goods requiring a yeasted rise when doubling up on the evil Ortho Tri-Cyclen.
- Always have a backup meal or pre-made crust.
- If the first crust fails, don’t try again.
- If you start sobbing and yelling while throwing away dough, your husband will still love you, although he may find you a smidgen crazy.
It was a rough day. Tomorrow will be better.
*Note: Dinner attempt No. 3 used a pre-made crust and it was surprisingly delicious.
