Daily Dinner Table

Ideas for dinner tonight. Household and kitchen tips, recipes, tweaks. What's worked great, and not so great.

With a little help from my freezer

Pumped up Pizza

Pumped up Pizza

Does this look like a frozen pizza? Well, it is, and it isn’t! I like to keep a frozen pizza in the freezer for a quick “emergency” situation.

If I don’t have time to make dough, and want convenience, pumping up a pizza will do the trick.

We went out for a long, late lunch today, and when dinner time came, we just wanted a really nice salad, but a little more than that too. So, head to the freezer.

I usually have lots of fresh veggies in the fridge, and that’s the perfect way to both add nutrition and flavor to a “fast food”.

Tonight, on our spinach and mushroom frozen pizza,IMG_0351


ready to go into the oven

I added fresh basil, broccoli, squash, zucchini, onion, cherry tomatoes, shredded provolone, orange bell pepper.  For a little extra flavor, a light spray of Tuscan Herbed olive oil from our fabulous local olive oil shop, The Bodacious Olive , tops it off.



Bake it a tad longer than the box directs, until the cheese melts and the crust is golden and crispy.  It’s like having a homemade pizza in a jiffy.  Almost.

Add a delicious fresh salad and you have a fast, healthy light dinner. Tonight we ate on the deck, watching Hank Heron (our resident Great Blue Heron) and the seagulls. Doesn’t get better than that!

    If I were a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, now I’d say “Kowabunga, dude!”

    Mature driver discount. If QuotesChimp are over 50, don’t be quiet about it. Your age can save you up to 10 percent on your auto insurance premiums.

    In other words why are you asking me to deifne what being non-schizophrenic means to me? How would I know? I don’t think about it in my daily life just like I don’t think about being non-blind, non-crippled, or non-a-bunch-of-other-things. Sure it’s a privilege, but it’s a privilege of most people who are or consider themselves to be normative they don’t think about their “normativeness” it’s the basic state of their existence.

    This is such a good idea, I can’t believe I have never thought of it before. That looks so much better than frozen pizza, but its still so easy!

      Thanks! I’m glad you like it and will give it a try. I KNOW! How easy is this? AND so very versatile. Sometimes things are just too simple to think of them! It’s kind of like the ” WOW I could have had a V-8″ commercial. 🙂 Enjoy, Barbara
