It may be a couple of days before I can post about tonight’s dinner, so I thought I’d do a quick post about a couple of new foods I tried out today.
My son loves pizza. Oh, everybody’s kids love pizza. Oh, we all love pizza! My son also loves breakfast. I wanted to experiment with sending Chase home with a ready-to-go pizza he could pop into the oven and eat fresh. I decided on a breakfast pizza.
First I made a cheesy tofu scramble of crumbled tofu, onions, sundried tomatoes, and a melty cheese sauce. (Cook the onions first, then add everything else in.) Do you guys eat cheesy scrambles? I can’t eat scrambles because of my soy intolerance, but I had a bite of this one and man, it was great!
I used a Pillsbury can ‘o pizza dough and rolled it out to fit a 9-inch glass pie pan. I layered fresh spinach over the crust, mainly to keep it from getting soggy.
Then I filled it with the scramble…
… and included some instructions.
I’m hoping Chase will bake it tomorrow, then tell me it was the best pizza ever! I know the filling is good. I just hope it makes a good pizza. I’ll let you know.
A food that is NOT the best ever is green kidney beans. I picked these up awhile back.
They are kind of light green and some are all white. I cooked the whole box. The box had weird instructions in different languages and goofy columns of numbers and symbols and all I could find online was “cook until done.” I hate that. I cooked the beans for 2 hours, until my water ran out.
I hate them. They taste raw green. And they’re not soft. But I’ll eat them, probably mixed in with a green salad. Ughhh. I never enjoyed fancy French food anyway.
THESE greens, however, were the best I’ve ever ever had. Ever! They are the greens from my purple kohlrabi which we will be eating later tonight. I hope I can find more because they are too delicious! Not at all bitter, and they stay firm like kale does after steaming. So yummy.
I’m anxious to see what all of you have been cooking!
