“I’m really intuitive about these things. I’ve predicted two of my friends’ divorces, one pregnancy and a couple of natural disasters.”
Elijah is one of my favorite Girls characters. I can still see him edging his way into the cast photo at the end of the season three finale…
I have heard many friends talk about Girls for some time now. Finally decided to look for it, watch it.
That was when I returned from vacation last week. Jason and I watched all three seasons, in time to catch up and watch the finale this past Sunday.
This is our favorite way to watch a series, actually. We rarely watch television … okay, that is not correct at all. Our television is on much of the time, for background noise mostly. We cannot usually be bothered to remember when shows are on, and get impatient watching one show once a week.
So we find a show, head over to On Demand, and watch from 6pm until bedtime.
Girls was addictive right from the start. There were times it was frustrating (when we’d decide that was probably enough for the night), but we could not stop.
…and now it’s over again for the season. SIGH.
We consoled ourselves last night with pizza. A garlicy, crispy, savory three mushroom pizza.
roasted garlic mushroom pizza
YIELD: one large pizza
dairy, egg, soy and gluten free, vegan
1 head garlic, roasted (method below)
4-5 tablespoons olive oil, divided
3 baby bella mushrooms
3-4 crimini mushrooms
3-4 shiitake mushrooms
3-4 ounces Provolone cheese (vegan)
2 red cipollini onions, sliced thin
favorite vegan/gluten free pizza dough
roasting the garlic:
Peel the layers away from the garlic bulb, and slice the top off to expose the cloves inside. Set the bulb on the middle of a piece of aluminum foil (large enough to cover garlic bulb), drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Salt and pepper, and wrap the foil up around the garlic, covering completely.
Place on a baking sheet and cook in a 400 degree oven for 30 minutes or until garlic cloves are softened. Set aside to cool.
Meanwhile, prepare pizza dough. Wipe mushrooms clean and slice them thinly. Slice onions, prep cheese.
assembling the pizza:
On a prepared (parchment) baking sheet, par-bake crust at 400 degrees for 7-8 minutes. Remove from oven, brush with olive oil (about 2 tablespoons). Arrange cheese in even layer over crust, leaving an edge. Arrange mushroom slices in even layer, alternating types of mushroom so every bite has variety. Top with onion slices and roasted garlic, drizzle with remaining olive oil.
Carefully remove from baking sheet, return to oven directly on rack. Continue baking for another 8-10 minutes or until cheese is melted.
If any of you watch Girls and would like to discuss…
