I’m back!

These past two weeks, I was on vacation. I would like to say that I did some cooking, but it was nothing too extravagant. There was a night that I made meatloaf and potatoes; another night I made pork chops and pasta. Down the road, I made chicken alfredo that we ended up eating with chopsticks. The night after that, I made quesadillas and rice.  These are all things that I’ve made before, but never tire of making.

One of my last nights away from home, I made pizza. It was a very impromptu pizza. We had everything in the house. There was diced tomatoes and tomato sauce in the cupboard, mozzarella cheese and dough in the fridge. It was something quick and simple, perfect for a late night meal.

  5. Drizzle olive oil atop the crust.
  6. Add the diced tomatoes.
