Yes, I know, that's beer, not pizza. But what goes better with pizza? I got a little thirsty just downloading that picture.
I tried out a Cheeseburger Pizza recently and it's just great. That will be in this week's menus. See the picture and instructions, below.
As I write this, we are checking out freezers in the sale ads. As you know, I have issues with my refrigerator, which includes the freezer. Mainly, it doesn't hold much. I would like to buy an after-Thanksgiving sale turkey right now, but I have absolutely nowhere to put it. We both grew up with parents who had giant chest freezers. I think my parents' possibly may have held some, uh, out-of-season venison. Mr. L says his parents' freezer contained a lot of freezer burn. If we get one, I vow to do better than that.
On the menus, this week:
Sunday: Roast Chicken, Baked Potatoes with Sour Cream and Garlic Chives, and Green Beans
Monday: Sirloin Stroganoff, Buttered Noodles, and Broccoli
Tuesday: Cheeseburger Pizza; Salad (instructions below)
Wednesday: Andersen's Pea Soup and Popovers (and if you are ever in California near a Pea Soup Andersen's restaurant, just GO, okay?)
Thursday: Sorta Swedish Meatballs, Pasta, Carrots with Dill (Note: I am using half of my turkey burger for the pizza, and the other half to make these meatballs. Use the leftover Newman's Own Sauce (see below) for the meatball sauce.)
Friday: Baked Chicken Thighs and Rice with Artichoke Hearts and Peas (throw browned thighs everything into a baking dish, add a can of chicken broth and a little vermouth, cover and bake)
Saturday: Quinoa-Avocado Salad with Chile-Lime Shrimp; Tortilla Chips and Salsa
Super-Easy Cheeseburger Pizza:
Spray a cookie sheet with nonstick spray. Roll out a Pillsbury crust (any type). Top with Newman's Own Alfredo Sauce, one-half package of browned turkey burger, four strips of crisped, crumbled bacon, 1/2 cup of chopped dill pickle, and two cups of grated cheddar. Top with sliced tomatoes and 1/4 cup of green onions. Bake at 375 for about 30 - 40 minutes, or until browned.
Have a great week, everyone!
