It feels good to be back!  I had no idea how much I missed it until I was away for two weeks.  I didn’t think that it would be possible for me to stay away for two weeks but it happened, and during this time I was so busy that I didn’t even realize that I had let it go for two whole weeks.

Meeting so many of you this past weekend made it all worth it.  To see you and give you a hug in real life made me realize that this is really what social media is all about.  Our friendship and admiration started online through our Sunday Supper Movement, but meeting you in person, having you meet my family and having you take part in this Inaugural Food and Wine Conference meant the world to me.  You have no idea what a thrill it was to meet you all in person.

The Food and Wine Conference solidified so many things for me.  I learned that no matter how large your online following is, there is nothing like live interaction.  Watching introductions being made, enjoying the interactions that were taking place and seeing that we can change lives when we all come together, made it all worth it.  The Sunday Supper Movement brought these individuals together and there was love, admiration and encouragement everywhere we turned this past weekend.

I write this with such wonderful memories, a lump in my throat and absolute amazement.   What really blew me away was the fact that all the members that could not attend the conference felt so strongly that #SundaySupper must go on.  Conni from The Foodie Army Wife held down the fort while the rest of us were at the conference.  She did such an amazing job that #SundaySupper trended on twitter.  The commitment of the Sunday Supper Contributors truly blew me away and I can not thank them enough!

In our family, we love popping up on Saturday and going to our local Farmer’s Market.  Cheese, Vegetables, hummus and mediterranean pita bread are some of our favorite items to pick up and this is one of our favorite creations.  We love the Pizza and Salad combination.

It feel so good to be back into the Sunday Supper swing of things and I love this week’s theme.  I am a huge Farmer’s Market shopper, in fact it is the highlight of our Saturday mornings.  This week’s event hosted by T.R. Crumbley from No One Likes Crumbley Cookies  is all about recipes inspired by the Farmer’s Market.  Look at all these amazing recipes:

Love how light and refreshing your pizza is! Love that you used a pita! Looks delish!

This pizza and some wine would make the perfect meal, well, plus sharing it with family and friends including our extended Sunday Supper family.

Mmm, I’ve made something similar to this. So good! I am still jealous that so many of you go to meet last weekend. Crossing my fingers I’ll be able to join you next year when my little guy is bigger.

We love pita pizzas! And putting arugula on pizza. You get me. :)

Congratulations on such a successful event! I hope there will be a next year, because I sure would love to meet you and the rest of the team face to face!

Thank you so much Courtney! We will make it happen for you to join us next year!

Next year’s conference? I’m THERE! I hate that I had to miss, but have vowed to save all my Southwest Rapid Rewards points so I have enough to cover my airfare…halfway there now, with at least two more travelogues between now and next Summer!! I love your pizza…I had a flatbread in Dallas last weekend that was topped with arugula, creamy goat cheese and roasted grapes. Heaven!

I can’t wait to meet you my friend! We will have an absolutely blast! Counting down the days.

Liz July 28, 2013 at 12:56 pm

I MUST go next year!! We’re already scheduling next summer’s vacation, so if you have any inkling when the next conference will be, please let me know. I’m so glad it was a success.

PS…your pizza looks terrific!

FamilyFoodie July 28, 2013 at 5:39 pm

Liz, you really MUST! I will have all the deets to you by 9/1 and can’t wait to give you a hug.

Stacy July 28, 2013 at 1:04 pm

I am so sorry to have missed the conference. With all the other things going on at the beginning of the summer, I ended up in the States way earlier than usual, and then home again in due course. Like Liz, I’d love to attend next year so the more notice you can give about the dates or potential dates, the better.

That is one beautiful pizza. I love the way you heaped the arugula on top. Like a pizza salad. :)

Hi Stacy… I am already planning and should have location and date confirmed by 9/1… it would be so wonderful to meet you!

Ditto to your sentiments, Isabel, about the beauty of meeting the SundaySupper crowd. The conference was grand and very professional but I so appreciated the heartfelt caring which was evident in all the events =)

Love your pita pizza with mozzarella and arugula…Pita bread brings back so many happy summers in Cambridge, MA where my mother was the tennis pro. (If only I’d known Julia Child was in the neighborhood!)

FamilyFoodie July 28, 2013 at 5:37 pm

Kim, I loved meeting you and was so honored that you were at the conference. I only wish that there was more time. I am already planning next year’s conference and I think we need to add in an extra event for the Sunday Supper team so that we can all enjoy each others company.

Isabel, I am SO happy that the conference was a huge success and that you were able to see your vision come to life. This is your baby but we all love it as if it were our own. Sunday Supper has become my family and I can’t wait until the day I can meet all of you in real life. Hopefully you can make me this delicious arugula prosciutto pizza when that happens ;) I’ll bring the wine and dessert!

What a great way to make me feel less guilty about having some pizza. :) I have some arugula growing on my window sill so I am going to have to try this next time I make it.

So glad the conference went swimmingly and you all had a great time getting to know each other in person :) I hope to make it next year, because it sounds wonderful!

Also -this pizza! I love it! I’ve actually never made a pizza from a pita, but it makes perfect sense.

Christine Szalay-Kudra July 29, 2013 at 4:40 pm

One of the ladies that writer’s for my sites lives in Holland where pizza comes with Arugula. Seems the Dutch just love the stuff and it is a main stream of pizza in their country. Interesting how different cultures put their own spin on things. Moreover, pita bread my husband just adores the heck out of it he often makes it with melted Swiss/American cheese on it for breakfast. I like the combo myself and this will have to find its way to our table and soon.

Pizza and arugula what a perfect summer meal. I might even have to make this during our super, long winters here too.

This pizza looks incredible! Pizza can be so heavy, so the arugula sounds great to add freshness!

Getting around to commenting after last week’s Sunday Supper. I love the idea of fresh greens on pizza–particularly fresh greens like arugula. Beautiful pizza!
