Nice sunny afternoon, perfect to fire the mud oven. A relative posted a recipe from Pintrest. A creamy tomato soup with tortellini, ground sausage and sun-dried tomatoes. The wife worked on that inside and I fired the oven for calzones. I started firing at 4:00 with all maple. I do notice we are gaining at little more daylight every day. January thaw coming up this week. rocking Sunset pic. Sausage and cheese in. There is a steam jet shooting out of the calzone in the center of the pic. Done. Pepperoni out Close up cheese shot. Soup finished. Grated parmesan gave it a nice flavor. I really don't like regular tomato soup, but the cream and chicken stock take the sharpness out of it. It turned out to be a really good recipe. Anybody else cooking outside on the firepit or smokers? Lets see what you got going.
