Keep paying attention to the Gulf as the tragedy continues to unfold. According to NPR, the recent oil spill in the Gulf “could become the nation’s worst environmental disaster in decades, threatening hundreds of species of fish, birds and other wildlife along the Gulf Coast, one of the world’s richest seafood grounds, teeming with shrimp, oysters and other marine life.” Now possibly larger than the 1989 Valdez spill, BP’s CEO, Tony Hayward continued BP’s offensively cavalier attitude by calling the spill “relatively tiny” when compared to the “very big ocean”. BP and the government continue to downplay the importance of the actual numbers of gallons of oil being released into the Gulf, claiming to be more concerned about stopping the flow of oil. Scientists disagree, saying that the size of the spill is instrumental in finding out the amount of damage being done. For a comprehensive slide show of images taken the past few days, click here.

I made a dried fig, prosciutto, feta and arugula pizza the other night that was based off my friend Lee’s concoction. Her’s was better, because the crust was crunchier which went really well with the flavors and texture of the pizza, but mine was still pretty good. The recipe is similar to this one, minus the rosemary, but the dried figs in addition to the jam were really what sent it over the top for me. Lee wants to use some caramelized onions next time we make it, which I think will be pretty good.
