A few weeks ago, all my boys went to Tennessee for the weekend to spend some time with family. I had work and music obligations, so I stayed. Darn. 😉
It was an absolutely amazing experience for my soul to be alone in the quiet for an entire weekend. You mamas know what I mean.
I had grand plans of all the things I would accomplish. But, my body hadn’t been able to be lazy in maybe 4 years….so I pretty much tackled Netflix, some writing, and random cooking.
Best. Weekend. Ever.
I challenged myself to figure all my meals out for the entire weekend without going to the grocery store or spending any money. The call was to be satisfied with what I already had in my fridge, freezer, and pantry.
I’ll definitely be posting about how did this and how I felt.
One of the meals I made was a pizza–I ended up making a dough out of flours in my pantry and a yummy sauce from a can of tomato paste.
To save time, you could use sprouted grain tortillas for the pizza crusts–and do a build your own kind of night. The trick is to bake them first, and get them a little bit hard before you put the sauce and ingredients on it!
I always have tomato paste and spices in my pantry so this makes for an easy dinner, especially when I feel like there’s ‘nothing to eat.’
I hope you enjoy!
