Slices of Caramelized Onion, Feta & Serrano Ham Flatbread

The tears on the other side of my scratchy cell phone line were faint but audible. I could feel them in my heart, which broke at the thought of my children missing me. This was a first. The tears, that is. I’ve gone away before, not too often, but enough times to think that this was old hat to my children, perhaps even a novelty. The chance to eat pizza and gummy bears with daddy.

But this time, they missed me and begged me to come home.

“What did you eat for dinner?” I asked, hoping to change the subject to something more exciting. I knew what the answer would be.

“Pizza! With olives and half mushroom. And pepperoni.”

A treat, to be sure. If I were home, pizza would be homemade, but this time, they went out, with daddy, and I’m sure they were fine. But the thing is, I missed them as much as they missed me.

If I were home, I would have made the pizza with them, and let them top and layer with cheese. And I would probably have made another for myself.

    That is probably the best bit of comfort food I have ever seen … I have to dust off my cooking skills, they have lain dormant for far too long…
