It seemed necessary to consolidate all my favorite cheeses in one place.
And it’s on a thin crust, which means there’s less bread to get in the way of the cheese.
Now, it’s not really that much cheese. It’s just a lot of variety of cheeses. We’ve got just a taste of blue, feta and goat cheeses. But then a bit more of ricotta, asiago, parmesan and mozzarella. It’s perfect. And oh so creamy.
Pizza is my favorite go-to meal when I really wanna go out to dinner but Andrew says something about staying within something called a budget. Still not sure what that is…all I know is that it does not involve fun.
See that picture above? I think I need to clean the back of my oven. But the only time I think about cleaning my oven is when it’s hot. I guess ovens have a ‘cleaning’ mode. My oven is old and I’m not sure if it has a cleaning mode. I just remember one time when I was a kid I was making cookies (probably not the linked to cookies bc I’m sure they were Betty Crocker’s sugar cookies) and I accidentally turned my parent’s oven on cleaning mode instead of bake mode and it sucked. Maybe that’s why I hate cleaning…because of that one time it kept my cookies from baking.
Oh my gosh. It all makes sense now.
This is my favorite meme. It gets me every time. And May isn’t even my favorite month! Except this May is looking unusually good because I’m graduating (FINALLY) and we’re taking a vacation to Taos. I’ve never been. Have you?
Well, that’s all I’ve got for you today. I managed to drive over a giant nail and my tire is losing air as I type, so I’m off to get it changed. And I’ve been told I’m supposed to get my tire’s rotated. While I’m doing that, you should go to the grocery store and buy 7 different cheeses and put them on a pizza. It doesn’t even have to be these cheeses. Any will do just fine.
