Whiteout Pizzas

Before I began my whiteout adventure, The Fella and I made pizza often.  We usually used a variety of ready-made (white) dough, anything from Alesci’s (the best!), to Trader Joe’s pesto dough, to the stuff that comes in a cylinder next to the crescent rolls at the supermarket.  When it comes to homemade pizza, I’ve always been more about the toppings than the dough.  Tonight was my second time making pizza with whole grain dough.  Last time we used a dry mix purchased from the supermarket.  It took a few hours to rise and tasted very good.  This time we used Trader Joe’s Whole Wheat pizza dough.  It was kinda tough and chewy with so-so flavor.  I won’t be getting it again.  I  have been meaning to try making whole wheat pizza dough from scratch.  When I find a recipe that I like I’ll link to it on this site.

A Quick Lunch

First of all, I am featuring this lunch because it utilizes leftovers.  Unlike many people, I love leftovers!  I love having another taste of something that I liked the first time.  I love that so many foods taste even better the next day.  I love not being wasteful.  This is also a great lunch to pack off and take to work.  Some Mondays I’ll pack a small grocery bag full of salad fixings: greens, raw veggies, beans such as edamame, garbanzo or black beans, cheese.  I’ll use this bag to build a different salad at work all week long.  By Wednesday I usually grab a few more items from home to liven up my salads and replenish what I’ve used up.  This where my leftovers come in handy.
