There's a restaurant here that gets raves for its potato pizza. It is quite good. You'll have to share how yours turns out!

Your tea party sounds so fun. I have this daydream of throwing a little tea party, giving me a reason to use the rose dishes from my great-grandmother. Some day maybe I will...

I know just what you mean about meeting your teenage daughter. I try to picture my life ten years from now and get all excited. Then a little sad. Then excited again. There's always something to look forward to, isn't there?

You're so right, Omaha--parenting is such an up and down, sweet/salty, happy, sad sort of roller coaster, isn't it? But I think that's what makes it such a rich, life-altering experience.

I'll definitely share the potato pizza results along with a column tomorrow on the Greek New Year's bread I make every year.

Something about the idea of potato pizza squicks me out a bit - I'm sure I'd like it if I tried it, though.

Oh, that's so much fun! I love that picture, too - The Baby had a tea party with a friend yesterday, both of them wearing fancy schmancy princess dresses. It's funny to think of their teenaged selves, although my oldest is really (when I can think about it) not that far from her teen years. Yikes.

The tea party sounds delightful! I am another fan of tea (my second cup of the day is brewing) and scones, too, of course.

I have never had potato pizza per se, although there is a chain pizzeria known for their windy city deep dish pie that has a "pizza skins" appetizer I enjoy. It appears to be made by putting mashed potatoes, cheese, etc. into the pizza crust instead of into the potato skin. I'll be intrigued to hear how yours turns out -- I'm sure it will be great.
