Menu Monday & Bookworm Tendencies

January 24, 2012

Hi everyone! I hope you aren’t missing the weekend too much… ;)

I’m so proud of myself; I’ve been so good about cooking dinner for the past couple of weeks. Sure I’ve done old favorites like spaghetti, but I’ve also done some pretty great Pinterest recipes (see post #1 and post #2).

Tonight, however, I had to pull out an oldie but goodie that I learned from none other than my wonderful cook of a mother. She made this so many times while I was growing up, and it’s cheap for young people on a budget like me!

Homemade Pizza
(I fail and forgot to take a picture)
1-box Chef Boyardee pizza kit 
(yes, I’m not kidding)
(It’s only $2.50-ish and includes dough, parmesan cheese, and pizza sauce)
Obviously the rest depends on your personal tastes, but we had:
Canned mushrooms
Canned black olives
Mozzarella cheese
Basically, you just follow the recipe on the box, adding whatever toppings you like.
This pizza is something that you have never tasted before, I promise!
I eat it with a fork, and a salad to complement the meal.
I really hope that you guys try this some day. The pizza kit is super cheap and it’s very yummy!
Also, I wanted to share with you all my newest read: Bitter is the New Black by Jen Lancaster. 
So far, it is GREAT. I’m about halfway through and it’s such a fun read. It’s definitely different than my last read (Hunger Games trilogy- which was UH-MAZING). I definitely suggest reading it. (After this book, I have to grab the latest book for the Cover2Cover book club!) Have any of you read this book? Thoughts? (No spoilers!)
Lastly, I was finally able to develop somewhat of a decent looking button. (thanks to Ashley at Mister G and Me seeing my pleas on Twitter!) It sure would mean a lot if you guys could grab it. Let me know if you do and I’ll be glad to put yours on the side of my blog as well!
Have a great Tuesday! xx
