Happy Tuesday Sweet Friends,
Hope you and yours had a lovely but meaning-
ful, and safe day yesterday for Memorial Day.
We had a very lazy but meaningful day.
We had a pretty busy week, so we were just
exhausted, so decided to just do nothing.....
We did run to the grocery store and make
my fav, 1/2 pd. grass-fed beef Hamburgers
on the grill, and then put them on Ciabatti
bread, with lettuce tomatoes and onions and
they were soooo good, and later had brownie
Sundae's, so that made us happy campers
and we watched a "Walk thru History" on
TBN which was really good, as it explained
a lot of information about the wars we as
a nation have been involved in all the way
from the Civil War up to now. It was
very interesting..........and of course, made
you realize once again that Freedom is
in NO Way Free!!
Have had a few things
I have wanted to share so have been writing them down
so that maybe I can post them. Today is one of those
days. I know with prices rising all about us every day,
that many are looking for anything that might help
them save $$$, right!
Well, the last time we tried to order pizza from Domino's
the price of the pizza we normally order for $11-12 was
now $27.00 and that was with us picking it up!!
So I politely said what I paid for my last pizza and
she said did you have a special coupon? and I said NO,
and said if you look back at my order history you
should be able to see it. She said wel,l, I am not in the
office so I can't......so I politely declined the $27.00
pizza. So now what do we do, right??
And I must confess that me and pizza dough do
not do well together.....I even tried pillsbury pizza
dough once, and I felt like I was in a Lucy and
Ethyl comedy. I would stretch it all out on the
pan only to have it shrink back to the original
size, so with that said.....
While on vacation last year we had gotten a pizza pack
with personal size pizza's at Sams and we liked the
brand. So hubby ran to the store and got a large 4
cheese frozen pizza by "Red Baron", (but of course you can
do it with a cheese pizza of your choice). I already had
most of the ingredients on hand, but he needed to get
roasted red peppers and black Olives. Once he brought
it home and before we baked it,
I added Ham, onions or scallions, roasted red peppers,
sliced black olives, and baby spinach. Popped it in
the oven for about 20-25 mins. and it was delicious!
(Just followed directions on the pizza box for oven
temp. and time)
I also sprinkled it with granulated garlic and
italian seasoning, and I have also done it without,
both ways are great!
Some notes that might helps you:
We typically have Ham, onions or scallions and
baby spinanch on hand, but found a way to
have the roasted red peppers and black olives on
hand as well.
I found that a bottle of roasted red peppers goes a
long way and can make up to 4-5 pizzas, but the
jar once opened only last about a week, so I found
a way to freeze them for future use and it has
worked perfectly. Put some wax or parchment
paper on a cookie sheet then drain the peppers into
a colander and rinse, then lay them out separately
on the cookie sheet with some space between,
then put them in the freezer and freeze them.
I forget for how long, but just until you know they
look frozen.....once frozen put them in a ziplock
sandwich bag and put them in the freezer, Just
pull them out when needed and they are not a
big jumbled up mess since they were frozen
Now for the Olives....
In the Olive section of your store, they should
have "Lindsay Snack and go Olives," they are
in a red box and they have 4 lil containers of
sliced black olives with no juice. So you can just
keep them in the pantry, and you have enough
for 4 pizzas.
Hope this might help you have a wonderful
pizza without breaking the bank, and of course,
there are many things people put on their pizza
that we don't, but you can see that if you want
to make it at home where there is a will there
is a way. Also a large frozen pizza is about
$5-6 depending on where you buy them.
Happy Pizza Eating........
Oh and P.S. if you get the Red Baron do get
the 4 cheese one, as we accidentally, got the cheese trio,
this week, and we did not like it as well. Who would
think, one less cheese would do that!! lol
Love, Hugs and
End of May Blessings,
