Here I go again.
It’s a shocker I did not throw some avocados on top too.
I would have, but….
I ran out.
And since I am trying to use up the food we have in the fridge, the grocery store is not an option. Plus, it’s forty-five minutes away, remember?
These awesome little pizzas just kind of happened the other day.
See, I am headed out of Oregon and back to Colorado tomorrow.
I know I already said this, like yesterday, but I cannot wait to get back to a civilized town with a grocery store within walking distance. YES!
Anyway, this means I am in that, “Oh no there is so much food in the fridge and we leave tomorrow stage”. Yeah, being a food blogger and actually leaving a fridge empty is impossible.
Basically, I am shoving food, dessert, snacks, fruit and everything in-between, in people’s mouth every chance I get.
I am so glamorous, aren’t I?
Yesterday I was such a mess, frantically cooking away. Today it’s time to pack, clean and pack some more.
These were the result of a whole loaf of french bread in the freezer, one sad ear of corn, a zucchini that needed sautéing and fresh tomatoes that are so good it’s crazy.
Oh, and tons of basil that I bought because I love basil so much. The problem is, my eyes are bigger than my mouth and my stomach. It’s kind of a problem sometimes.
Oh yeah, and a whole eight ounces of fontina that just needed to be melted. Honestly, it was screaming “Melt me! Melt me!” so I did and boy was is good!
Oh shoot, and the crispy basil??? Yeah, not kale, basil – wow!! They’re basil chips, and topped on this pizza they are awesome. Awesome!
Plus, these took me twenty-minutes, on the dot. It’s just an awesome meal and so easy, so fresh and the perfect late summer meal. Especially for you people out there who have a green thumb and actually have garden vegetables. Oh man, I would love a garden. You know, one that does not have fluorescent lights. Things don’t grow too well up at 10,000 feet where there are only about 30+ nights a year where it does not go below freezing. People try to grow stuff, there is even a community garden, but I have never seen anything that would come close being entered in a county fair. More like garage sale veggies.
I’m sure we could have grown stuff here in Oregon this summer, but since we are renting a condo and since we are only here 6 weeks, a backyard garden just isn’t happening for me!
Oh, don’t forget to make the balsamic glaze. It’s such a great compliment to these pizzas!
Ahh, I love summer food!
