Movie Night!

Since last night was a movie night (Jeremy and I watched The Ugly Truth and part of District 9), I decided to make a super easy dinner. By the way, I highly recommend The Ugly Truth if you're not easily offended by crude humor. It was hilarious. As for District 9, I'm disappointed so far.

I like to keep a jar of organic pasta sauce in the fridge for emergency purposes since I normally prefer making my tomato or pasta sauces but don't always remember to pick up tomatoes. I preheated my oven to 425, thickened up some Newman's Own Roasted Garlic tomato sauce with a bit of leftover tomato paste I had in the freezer, and slapped it on some Ezekiel Sprouted Grain Wraps. Found some leftover herbed goat cheese in the fridge and sliced that up along with some onions to top my Cheater's Pizzas. And then there was bacon. I forgot I had it leftover from the other night, so needless to say I was pretty happy. After crisping that up and tossing the pizzas in the oven for about 10 minutes, it was go time. A leftover creme brulee from the night before sealed the deal.

So this pizza turned out pretty good, but had Jeremy not had a say, I would have reached for other fridge ingredients. Here is the pizza that didn't get made:
Ezekiel wrap brushed with crushed garlic in olive oil, sliced onions, sliced pears, blue cheese and a few sparse dollops of fig preserves. I may have to make this version for lunch Thursday while I am working on my crafts...

Melody go for the contrast of different textures and flavas! It will be as rewarding as Emeri's bleu cheese ice cream, walnut pount cake, poached pears, and strong port. Yessss. PLEASE for the love of all you have try that pizza.
