I’m so glad it’s college football season. Aren’t you?
I just finished watching the UF vs. UT game and loved it! I was a little nervous the first half but we pulled it off in the end. 31-17W (Gators!!)
What teams are you cheering for?
After a busy day of work, some homework, a short power name, and of course the game, I was ready for some dinner.
I love dinners that are easy and come together really nicely as if you’ve spent a lot of time on them.
I love having homemade crust in my freezer so that I can thaw it, roll it out, and make some pizza in a jiffy.
Being gluten-free, I use Bob’s Red Mill GF pizza crust mix. It says it will yield 2 crusts but I always tend to turn it into 3. Especially since I’m just cooking for one. I’d rather have fresh pizza more often, than lots of leftover pizza (though I do love some leftovers).
While the crust was doing its initial baking I grilled some zucchini, tempeh, brussel sprouts, and pre-cooked chicken I had in the freezer (notice a theme on freezing?). (I also made some hummus – I’m a multitasker like that.) After the crust was cooked through I topped it with some sliced tomatoes, and my grilled zucchini, tempeh and chicken, then some goat cheese and Kerry Gold (grass-fed) cheese. It was amazing.
And topped off with a drizzle of EVOO and a couple leaves of basil from my windowsill garden.
Don’t underestimate the final drizzle at the end. It adds a burst of flavor and some healthy fats. Delicious!
Topped with some garlic gold too. Can’t have too much! 😉
And my purple basil plant.
What’s a quick dinner you like to make in a jiffy?
Do you have a garden or windowsill garden? What are you growing?
