I didn’t mean too,  it just happened.  I had all the fixin’s.  And so I did it. Earlier today I had made homemade pizza dough from a recipe in the Bon Appetit Cookbook.  After a lazy 4 hours of rising, (2 rises), I made a 9″ pizza to resemble my beloved buffalo chicken wings.

My base was a scant layer of Frank’s Red Hot sauce with a sprinkle of yellow onion.  I sauteed/browned up some (4) chicken strips and then shredded the meat.  In the same pan I melted butter and tossed in more Franks to make ‘buffalo’ sauce.  I then popped the chicken back in to coat.  After careful placement of the chicken on the pie, I then took some blue cheese, and crumbled it over the chicken, and topped it off with mix of mozzarella and cheddar cheese.   [Oven: 450F for 10 mins).

It was heaven and really filling.  I’d suggest either putting some small slices of celery in next time, just for texture, or having carrot/celery sticks on the side.  This would be a GREAT superbowl pizza snack!

So I’m heading home for the holidays soon and as such, not heading for the grocery store.  Two nights ago I was in need of something yummy and filling for supper, but really didnt have much to work with. 

Or so I thought!

Homemade Greek Pasta:

  • Veggie tri-colour pasta 
  • 1/2 c. olives
  • 2 oz. feta
  • 1/2 c. fresh parsley
  • 1/4 c. sundried tomatoes
  • 1/2 juice of lemon

I tossed it all together with a bit of olive oil and some freshly squeezed (1/2) lemon juice.  YUM! 

This is similar to a cold pasta salad I’ve made before, with the added bonus of the s/d tomatoes.   It tasted wonderful hot..  and just as good the next day cold!

I wish I took a picture – it was pretty.
