I’m going to whiz right through tonight’s dinner post because I have a hot date with my DVR, specifically American Idol and Lost. There’s just so much good TV to watch! I’m also really craving some serious R & R tonight, so quick post then vegging out!
When I got home from NuVal, a big box of Uncle Jerry’s Pretzels was waiting for me on my front porch. Sweet! I’m not typically a pretzel fan, but I love Uncle Jerry’s. They actually taste healthy, but in a good way. You can tell that they are made with high quality and wholesome ingredients.
This afternoon, I tried the Extra Dark variety, which has a unique blackened, almost burnt, taste. They were so, so delicious. I’m a big fan!
After eating a couple of pretzels, I snacked on a banana to hold me over until dinnertime.
Real Simple had another winner with their Deep-Dish Polenta Pizza recipe. It rocked!
In addition to tasting wonderful, this recipe was so easy to make. It took practically no time to prepare and just 30 minutes to cook in the oven. Although, Mal popped the pizza back in the oven for an additional 10 minutes to give the crust a more crispy texture.
The recipe called for shredded radicchio, sun-dried tomatoes, and mozzarella, but I topped my pizza with red bell pepper, mushrooms, and crumbled blue cheese.
The melted blue cheese was to die for!
This recipe was a great twist on your usual homemade pizza. It’s definitely a keeper!
For dessert, I finished off the final two Oatmeal Raisin Cookies from yesterday’s batch.
After dinner and dessert, Mal broke out a bottle of Berkshire Brewing Company Cabin Fever Ale. I wasn’t planning to drink, but I think I needed a beer tonight.
Mal just started American Idol and I have a beer waiting for me. Time to chill with my guys!
Enjoy your evening!
