But tonight, the cupboard was bare...well, darn close! I have peanut butter--and jelly!--but no bread. I have Parmesan, but no pasta. Tabasco, but no eggs.I started to think I was going to have to have that last Slim Fast for dinner rather than for tomorrow's breakfast.
Then I opened the freezer.
Hidden behind the two frozen turkeys Montage has given me the past couple of Thanksgivings, there was a glorious frozen pizza left over from Zac's birthday party in March! (OK, maybe it was from his graduation party in May of 2008.) Either way, I had truly forgotten it was in there.
I warmed up the oven and actually enjoyed the smell of something BAKING in my home. I cut it while it was hot...cheese and pepperoni were dripping off the sides!!
And it was spectacular! With just a shot of that Chardonnay (no idea how long it's been in there) it was the perfect dinner.
And, I averted the grocery store for one more day.
I'm invited to a friend's house for dinner tomorrow night--and I've definitely got enough leftover pizza to get me through the end of the week!
Ok...I'll go to the market on Saturday!
Hmm...wonder how long it would take to cook one of those turkeys?
