Pizza Pizza

I got a lot of random stuff done today! I love when that happens.

  • Personal Property Taxes – paid
  • Package picked up from post office – done
  • Clean out file cabinet/sort bills and paperwork – done
  • Gather stuff for a fun giveaway coming up :) – working on it!

My stomach is still a bit off, but it’s better than it was last night so I’m hoping I’m completely back to normal by the morning. I guess we’ll see?  At least it’s nor worse, right?

Fun thing today!

Nicole and I decided to do a swap a few months ago, and I got to pick up my package from her today!

There was so much stuff! It felt like Christmas and was so much fun to see things I’ve never heard of before.

Sodas, bars (mini Lindts!), candy, Swiss ovaltine, I think(?), Ricola!, Toblerone…

I’ve seen these Eat Natural bars on a few blogs before and am excited to try them – all the flavors sound great. I also got a ton of little chocolates and candy…

…this “crunchy cream” which smells like a malted chocolate spread (!)…

…a Lindt Sea Salt bar straight from Switzerland  :)

Thanks so much Nicole!!! So sweet to send all of this! I can’t wait to try it all.

After that excitement, I took it easy on the couch for a while with a few episodes of One Tree Hill  :) 

I was all ready to make pizza for dinner around 5:30, but Nick called and said he was going to be a little late getting home so I watched some news and worked on something for work for a bit until he got home.

And then – Pizza Pizza time!

2nd confession of the day? I used premade crusts tonight.

I was going to make my own, but I just did not feel up to it this afternoon – and these turned out pretty good!

They were Mama Mary’s Thin Crust and came 2 to a package, which was perfect for tonight.

We had 2 pizzas, mostly because I wanted both kinds and because that meant we would definitely have leftovers for tomorrow night.

This one had:

  • homemade tomato sauce (tomato sauce, garlic powder, salt, pepper, crushed red pepper, Italian seasonings)
  • diced red onion
  • cremini mushrooms
  • 6-7 slices pepperoni, diced
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheese

And this one was awesome!

This one had:

  • 3 Tbsp Mezzetta Pesto (as the “sauce”)
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheese
  • 1 roasted garlic chicken sausage, sliced
  • diced red onion

I had 2 small slices of each with my salad of romaine, carrots, red onion, and garlic almonds…

…and then I had one more slice of each.

I’m pretty full + happy now :)

I normally wouldn’t have this much pizza, but I never had a snack this afternoon…and it was just too good!

The football game comes on in 10 minutes…I may make it half time…but probably not  ;) The late games are just as bad a late tv shows: too hard to stay up for!

 

Do you
have any new/different pizza combinations to try?
I love normal pizzas (cheese, pepperoni, veggie), but it’s fun trying new flavors!

  1. chocolate malt spread? I can only imagine what that’s like!

  2. That package looks SO fun!

  3. Have you ever tried BBQ chicken pizza? It’s my favorite :)

  4. i totally had pizza tonight too…with premade crusts, aka pita. hehehe….

    i love having veggies all over my pizzas…but i once made a pb&j and banana/apple/strawberry pizza once for a snack…freak’n awesome. i should try that with my cran-apple butter from tj’s…

  5. i’m jealous of that package!

    lots of basil is always good on pizza, so is roasted garlic-yum!

  6. I love pesto, cheeseless, with turkey. And I’m a big fan of bbq chicken and pineapple!

  7. pesto, shrimp, feta and red pepper flakes is one of my fave combos!!! :)

  8. I usually eat the regular – tomato sauce, peppers, pepperoni and cheese. But I’ve had some really good creative ones and I’m sure I could make some good homemade versions of them.

    Sorry your tummy is still a little off – hope it feels better before the weekend!

  9. Wow girl! That is a COOL package..what a gift! lucky girl! :-)

    Favorite pizza: grilled figs, butternut squash, brie, goat cheese, arugula!

  10. Holy! you got a lot of sweet goodies:D

  11. Wow all of that stuff looks so different and interesting! I love blog swaps–I still use the heart measuring cups I got from you in last yrs swap! :-)

  12. I don’t think anyyything beats leftover pizza. Yours look so good! I love pesto.

  13. me and my sister were craving pizza so bad last night! its one of natures more amazing foods dont you think? hahah! hope your feeling better today! :)

  14. What a great swap – and an even better pizza :)

  15. Now that’s a great package to receive in the mail! WOW! Nicole is awesome (and her name ain’t bad either). She sent you a little bit of everything – SCORE! This is really funny – I was just at the grocery store today and I saw for the first time those Mama Mary’s Thin Crusts. However, I didn’t know if they were any good, so I didn’t buy them. Now I know I should have! Thanks Brandi :) I love the basics, too, on my pizza – especially mushroom and broccoli. But, I recently saw a recipe for fig and fontina cheese with arugula which really intrigued me. Or, maybe shrimp with pesto and sundried tomato?

  16. Wow, all those goodies look amazing. I always use premade dough, haha.

  17. That Rivella drink is funny. It’s touted as a health drink and also that it’s made from milk “serum”, but it has tons of sugar! Very funny. I was in Switzerland this summer and from the descriptions I thought that it would be awful, but it tastes really yummy. They drink it by the bucketloads over there!
