||Christian's brother Kyle is in town! Eat Out
This week's menu is very leftovers heavy...not on purpose really more because our meals last week stretched further than we thought they would. Made our grocery shopping bill very affordable this week! If you followed along last week, I hope your Tacos and Pizza came out as delicious as ours did. If yours weren't a home run in your house (it happens to all of us!), just try to get creative and turn your leftovers into something new. The taco meat could turn into a layered enchilada casserole for example.
If you didn't try the DIY pizza night that I recommended in last week's menu
I encourage you to do so soon. We've been trying to make homemade pizza for quite a while and this dough recipe
and minimalistic approach to toppings made our most successful DIY pizzas yet! The dough requires no kneading, is super easy and comes out great even without a pizza stone or fancy tools/ovens. Blistered, crispy crust at home, really! Christian even said these could replace going out to eat fancy artisan pizzas at restaurants for him. High praise from a pizza lover in a city with great artisan pizza everywhere you turn (Tony's
, Una Pizza Napoletana
, Pizzeria Delfina
, just to name a few of our faves!). I'll be writing a post about our successful pizza night soon...stay tuned.
