Friday is my day off (I would have preferred Wednesday, but my weekly reporting to the European overall management is due in at 11am on Thursday), and today, I made pizza! Which is something I'd only ever done once before, more than 20 years ago - but for some reason, today I felt like making my own, from scratch. First I made the dough, then I made a quick and easy topping of passato di pomodoro, garlic and pecorino cheese, and then I heaped handfuls of parmigiano, onion rings, capers, tuna flakes and olives onto my base, drizzled it with olive oil and put it in the oven for 20 minutes. Nothing fancy but, even if I do say so myself, it's yummy! It's also very big and I will probably have to eat it for the next 3 days. I don't know why I've always gone for the easier option of just buying them ready-made, 'cause really, it didn't take me that long to make.

Yesterday was iWalk Day at work, which is an annual worldwide event in which Apple employees are strongly encouraged to go outside and walk a distance of at least 3 kms (or run 5) during office hours. So we trooped to the nearby park, walked for an hour clocking up 4,2 kms, which apparently made us burn up 214 calories, and upon returning to the office found we'd each earned ourselves a bottle of water and a wheat bar containing 280 calories.

I used to buy the ready made crusts and make my own pizzas with those. I never seem to do well with dough from scratch. You can do the same thing with flatbread or pitas and it's pretty good. I might do that this weekend for something different. P:

I've started walking every day to prep for my London trip. My ankles and knees are protesting a wee bit, but I'm determined, they must be strengthened before I leave.

Getting yourself used to walking is always a good idea when visiting London ;-)

Me, I'm one of those weird kind of people who prefer walking to public transport (or cycling). When I get to Amsterdam in the mornings, I still have a 30 minute walk to work ahead of me (or 2,5 kms), which I enjoy...but my colleagues call madness.
