There was nothing to fix for dinner. Seriously nothing. I thought I could whip up a pizza pretty quickly. But I only had about 1/4 cup of mozzarella cheese. Then I remembered I had a small hunk of pepper-jack cheese. That could be tasty. Then I began pulling out all the cheeses in my fridge. The supply of cheese scraps seemed to be endless. Some moldy, some I had no idea what type it was, most were not your typical pizza cheese.
So, why not shred them all up and mix 'em all together? I ended up using 10 kinds cheese:
Carmelized onion cheddar (From Trader Joes - yummiest stuff ever!)
And a couple hunks I couldn't identify - probably repeats of the others
Thai pizza was sounding really good. I haven't made that in years. No Thai peanut sauce in the fridge, so I found an easy recipe from the California Pizza Kitchen. I didn't have all the ingredients for the sauce, but I had enough to wing-it. I will definitely make this sauce again - it was delicious.
Plopped a couple frozen chicken breasts in the oven, mixed up a quick batch of dough, then began pulling out assorted items from the vegetable drawer. I had to throw away quite a few in the process. This was all I had to work with - a good half of a zucchini, 1/8 of a red pepper, 2 green onions, a small handful of carrots, and a few barely edible mushrooms.
I had two of these babies ready to go in the oven.
Fresh cilantro and cucumber topped this after it was cooked. Fresh cucumber on a hot pizza is amazing. I wished I had had more.
Even the kids gobbled this up.
My cheese drawer is so empty now.
