This is my second post tonight, most of you who stop by,will probably do so in only a few hours... that "pesky" time zone thing... sometimes wish Phoenix was more East, would make life so much easier!
I'm wondering what kinda stuff folks might me making for the weekend... I'm half tempted to do a number of appetizer types, and call it good, although last Weds. did read an article in the local paper, about cooking pizza on the grill, and must admit that
I'm intrigued! Past info seemed to indicate that a "pizza stone" would be needed... well I have enough junk in the house as it is, that I really TRY not to buy any item, that is good for only one use! This article, however, suggested that 5 mins over direct
heat, and an additional 5 mins indirect heat, "should" produce an extremely flavorful pizza. Again, intrigued! A few days ago, I dug out my rec's for pizza crust, both thin and deep dish, found a rec for pizza sauce, so on, so forth. So, I guess I'm set
to go, if I only have the items on hand to produce a couple smallish pizzas, and since I bought fresh lettuce, might be able to toss together a (not too boring) salad... PLEASE tell me that I don't have to go to another grocery no later than Sunday! Guess
I can improvise, and since neither of us are "salad enthusiasts" a bowl of lettuce, some dressing and grated cheese, we're usually fine! Hmmm and some garlic bread..? But dang it, I'm thinking tortilla chips with "con queso," my deceased friends rec for
chicken wings, I have two taco sized tortillas that I made into spinich pinwheels some days ago in the frige, just looking for a reason to put them out! I have no cabbage at all, so thawing out the home made skins... egg rolls are out... UNLESS, I venture
out to my closest grocery... uggh, on a holiday weekend? But then, I do believe that this is the last holiday of the year, that much of the population flees town, for cooler weather. (it was definately 100&miserable today!) So, I guess I really do need
to decide just what we will eat over the 3 day weekend, and decide if I have what I need. I HATE having to run out for just one ingredient!!
So, happy holiday weekend, and hope that we all get crazy in the kitchen, all 3 days! I know I will!
