Quicky Pizza

This blog might have left you with the impression that we eat ridiculously well every night (and most mornings, too).

I can assure you, that is not really the case. It is certainly our intention, but we're just as hard-pressed for time, energy and budget as everyone else out there.

Weeknights especially seem to go the way of meals that are as fast and simple as we can manage. Most of the flash and interesting stuff, the time-consuming stuff, happens on the weekends. It's sort of like the magic of television, only it's the internet.

But you saw it here, so it must be true, right?

Anyway, over the next few posts, I plan to intersperse a few more of our weeknight meals, and the little things we like to do to keep our meals vibrant, healthy, and tasty.

Here we have really quick, simple pizza.

The bases were in the freezer, leftover from another night of homemade pizza.

Then all you need is a brush of olive oil, a little bit of minced garlic, a slather of pizza sauce, some sliced salami, onion, and capsicum, and a grating of cheese.
In the oven for 18 minutes, and served with salad. Dinner made in less than half an hour.

More of these will follow, because I'm sure there are folks out there who will find them useful and hopefully inspiring.

Maybe November could be dedicated to NaNoWriMo with quick meals, to save us from existing on bags of chips and cookies. :)

Since I'm not doing NaNoWriMo, maybe that would indeed be a worthy contribution!

May I ask, what is NaNoWriMo????

National Novel Writing Month:

Over the course of November these crazy participants deny themselves everything humanly required to function in order to crank out at least 50,000 words towards a novel.

Having completed 2 full novel manuscripts inside of the past 12 months, I decided I was free to sit back on the sidelines and cheer.
