It’s really slim pickins in our kitchen…
Since we’re leaving late tomorrow evening for our trip to Virginia Beach, Jay and I have been trying to do our best to clean out the fridge and the kitchen of anything that could go bad while we’re away.
I also skipped on the grocery shopping this week (besides picking up the essentials…bananas, almond milk, and coffee) so our choices are really starting to run out.
Luckily, I noticed that we still had the ingredients necessary to make some last minute pizzas, so that’s what I rolled with tonight.
I started by using some Arnold Artisan Ovens Flatbreads as the base of our pizzas. These flatbreads really are so versatile; if you can find ‘em in your store, I’d definitely recommend giving them a try!
Next, I topped our “pizzas” with some Grandpa Pete’s Garlic Sauce, red peppers, onions, freshly shredded mozzarella cheese, and popped ‘em in the oven under the broiler until the cheese started to bubble.
I also added some fresh basil immediately after taking them out of the oven.
It’s also pretty good as a side dish, too.
Considering that I was all set to just pour myself a bowl of cereal and call it a night, I must say that I am quite happy that Jay decided to whine and complain in full force when I initially told him that dinner was “whatever he could find.”
Boy, sometimes he can really make me laugh.
Hey, I can only be super-awesome wife so often.
But one of those times will, in fact, be right now, as I’m headed out the door to cheer him on at his softball game…when I really should be packing. Ughhh, looks like I’ll be a Last-Minute-Mary again. (One of these days I’ll figure out why I do this to myself!)
Question for the Evening:
What’s your favorite go-to dinner when you really don’t feel like cooking?
