Perfecting Pizza

Dinners are simpler when Ross is out of town. This year, knowing I am soon going to be making baby food but have very little space in my freezer, I decided we'd eat up whatever odds and ends are currently in the freezer while he is gone. I found these 2 little frozen pizzas. What'cha think? They were labeled "Karasik" which means "Everything." Very little tomato sauce, some cheese, 1 lonely tomato wedge, 2 isolated black olive pieces, and a smattering of unorganized baloney-type meat. Mmmm. My kids are so good about eating whatever they are served, but I just didn't have the heart to place this in front of them, as is. So, I gave the pizzas a make-over.

Better, huh? I put some of my own homemade pizza sauce on them (leftover from last night!), removed the former toppings, and added more cheese. Better! A little pork sausage or pepperoni would have made it even better, but I am a mere mortal.

How wonderful . . . I was raised making everything from scratch. That is the way my mother did it. THEN, I married a man who is the King of Junk Food. Not because his mother failed to cook good wholesome meals. My mother-in-law is a great cook, wonderful big meals, the whole bit. She loves to cook . . . But David was born with junk-food genes. It has to be that. How he can stand the flavor of some things is beyond me.

Needless to say, I started the first years of our married life trying to impress him with my culinary skills, determined my girls were going to know how to make "scratch" everything, etc.

I have to report that now I balance between junk and homemade. Not because I like it but to please the man of this house. I will cook homemade whatever for me and the kids and open a can of his favorite and heat it for him. I serve it to him just like it was made with the other food. He is like, "Wow. You got that for me?" He knows I hate junk food.

The good side of that was when I had my babies and had no one to help me, he stocked the pantry with instant everything and was good to go cooking for the kids and himself as long as the microwave was working.

Yeah, for you and your homemade food. I know it is delicious! :)
